Coloring Tags for Christmas

I thought this might be a fun project for everyone! Christmas gift tags to color. I've made two sets here, one more traditional with cute elves and your crazy about Christmas aunt and the other set featuring a Beatnik snowman and hipster girls. They're available at Etsy though I will be adding to my store shortly.

Ticks and summer art

Here's some art from my summer journal, actually my watercolor journal. It's already October and I only have four sketches in it. Summer is over! And I'm probably the odd one out but I'm happy about it. I don't do well in the heat. I'm a total melter and much prefer the cool days of Autumn and Spring. I even love winter (until March).

This summer I was bit by a tick and ended up with Lyme Disease. I walking around at the cottage hunting for Pokemon and of course it was insanely hot and I didn't wear jeans because sweat. I was bit! I never did see the tick but I saw a big red patch on my skin that I ignored for a while. I thought it might have been an ant or bee sting. But it didn't go away and it got bigger and bigger. My doctor thought it might be contact dermatitis but the steroid creams she prescribed did nothing. I could see a red ring around the rash and I suggested a Lyme Disease test but my doctor looked at me like I was a bit crazy. Apparently, only 700 cases were confirmed in Canada last year so I can understand her skepticism. But the red ring rash combined with cottage walking made me nervous and I'm glad I pushed it because the test came back as positive. Luckily, it was early for me and I had four weeks of antibiotics and all turned out well. I never felt sick, I just had a huge rash. So public service announcement for cottage country - be careful! Those ticks are definitely here.

Masked Ladies and Dark Queens

I'm not sure how I became so far behind on my blog posting! Actually, I guess it happens more often than not. Who am I trying to kid, lol? I might possibly be in a state of near constant lag.

I'm back on the ATC train! I joined a few swaps over at and made some mask ladies and a few dark queens. These are all watercolor and ink. My masquerade ladies were inspired by that TV show, Skin Wars. I'd never heard of it before it hit Netflix but once I saw episode one, I became an instant addict and would love to try body painting. It looks like so much fun. I just need a model. Any volunteers?

I actually do have much artwork to share but it's for new and upcoming workshops! I've been busy filming and editing for the past couple of weeks. I'm hoping to finish up all of the new workshops over the next week or two and get them up and online. I should have an update and a teaser video for next week.
