IF: Packed with flies

Here's my entry for Illustration Friday. This frog is packed with flies. The ink drawing is not my own original idea. I like to practice my line work by attempting to copy the works of famous artist. This illustration is by Robert Lawson 1892-1957. To learn more about this artist visit Click on the illo for a closer look. Don't be too harsh on me remember I said "attempted."

As Antoinette walked by she could hear their whispers. She thought to herself, I am no longer in. It seems so strange not to be part of them anymore. I wonder if their is anyone out there who will accept me for who I am inside. inspiration from

IF: Island

As she sat by the edge of the island her mind and body was being swept away with the sea.

Mom, You are Weird!

My husband brought home this really neat projector that disassembles so that you can store it in a bag. I was so excited to finally have my own projector. When I do art projects for the church we attend I usually have to have my husband bring one home from the congregation. I just had to show it to my daughters. My 14 year old daughter looked at me and said, "Mom you are weird. Most moms want new shoes or Coach purses and you want a projecter. I wasn't offended because I hear this all the time. My birthday request are different too, a book, new tool, or something like that. I always tell them if you ask me what I want then I always make request for something I can really use or need thats just the way I am. For Mothers Day I had my husband buy me a French Door my friends thought that was really weird.

IF:Cluttered with Numbers

This is the scrap paper I had use to help my daughter with her math homework. The book I was reading at that time was a financial book with this face. My head was cluttered with numbers.

My Hand Painted "FAUX" Hardwood Cement Floors

This is one of my projects that I finished over the summer break. I really would like to have hardwood floors but that is currently not in my budget since my husband and I are trying to become debt-free (Dave Ramsey fan). I couldn't stand the old tile that was on the floor anymore so I pulled it up and painted my cement floor to look like wood. I think I did a great job. One day I will have the cash to do the real thing but for now I am happy. NO MORE UGLY TILE.
