Glitter and a Mess

Here’s a hand painted Christmas ornament I’ll be taking to an ornament exchange this weekend.  It’s covered in a beautiful sparkly glitter called “glamor dust” that looks amazing with Christmas lights shining next to it.  If you want one, email me.  They make great Christmas gifts and can be customized to order.  I can create your family in snowmen and add names, year, sayings, etc.  $5 + S&H unless you are local.

If you have ever worked with any glitter or even touched it, you know it makes a mess.  Speaking of mess, who wants to help clean this up? My studio looks like a bomb went off.  *sigh* Such is the life of the artist… I’m all over the place!

On a final note, here’s a sneak peek at a Christmas gift I’m working on.  I can’t post the whole thing until 1. After Christmas (in case someone actually reads this thing to prevent the recipient from seeing it) and 2.  It’s not finished… I better get working.  Do you have any idea what it is?  It’s on a canvas that is 48″ x 12″.  Fun size to work with.  I love this color blue.  It’s a Matisse acrylic paint called Design Cyan.  Just using water changes the depth of this rich color.
