Fresh of the Easel Friday...well, the Art Table Anyway!

This is my 100th post. Woohoo! As a celebration, I'll send one of my bookmarks to the 1st person who comments on it!

As you know, I am quite busy with commissions in the last few weeks, so I don't have any new paintings to show. I don't intend to share the commissioned pieces publicly until after they are with their new owners, however, I won't leave you hanging!

I love doing commissions, but I also often find it necessary to take quick breaks from them to keep my creativity flowing. I think it's because with commissioned pieces, there is pressure to blend someone else's ideas in with your own. If I find my creativity blocked, I simply stop and work on something that it doesn't matter what the final result is. I can experiment, get it out of my system, then get back to the commission with my whole heart.

This week I experimented with these bangle bracelets and am so thrilled with how they turned out! The material I used to create the form of the bangle is recycled. Can you guess what it is? I'll also send a bookmark to the first person who guesses (or the person who gets the closest if nobody gets it exactly), so you could potentially get 2 bookmarks!


  1. are the bangles made out of magazine strips?!

  2. It is that white poly piping stuff that you use as drainage in the garden?

    They look great anyway. :-)

  3. They look like the ones I made using cardboard centers of packing tape... Lovely colors
