New website, new designs and an art show

Hi all and Happy Mother's Day! It's been a busy month and I’d like to catch you up on everything I’ve been working on.
First, my new website,  It's still a work in progress but it's coming along nicely.  The home page features my new work and the shop page is filled with real handpainted work.  Be sure to stop by and check it out.
Next some photos of my new art block designs.

This is a set of 6 4x4 inch blocks and my favorite to date.  They are part of my new mixed media art block series. 
How they are made:
1. paint entire block (inclding sides) black 
2. paint three-four washes of desired color acrylic on face of block allowing some black to show through
3. cut your design for 65lb card stock and adhear to block
4. seal the block with mod podge for protection and a light shine.

This is another mixed media block done in a chevron pattern.

This is a shot of my set-up at the Durham Art Walk. 

My next endeavor is to set up my monthly newsletter.  Please leave your name and e-mail address in the comment box below to get on the list.
Thanks for stopping by!
