Bip! Bam! Pow!

Christmas is fast approaching, and the days are just flying by! Here is a sampling of what I've been up to.
The first batch of comic book wallets that I took to the PonShop sold out, so I dropped off another dozen just in time for First Friday (and Christmas shopping) last week.

I also completed 13 Christmas ornaments for a "13 days of Christmas" swap. Here are the packages on their way to coordinator, Elizabeth Woodford. More on that soon!

On Thanksgiving weekend, I participated in a "painting around" group inspired by Ro Bruhn. We gathered in Elizabeth Woodford's brightly colored studio, and each artist placed a blank canvas on the table. Then, we chose a color palette and a theme -ours was circles- and started painting.
 We painted on our own canvases, and on everyone else's, too! It was really, really fun! We worked for about two hours, stanidng and walking around the table the whole time. Then we took a break for lunch,. At the end of the break, we each settled into working on our own canvas.

This is my piece at the end of the day. Quite a departure from my regular color palette. In fact it seems that everything I'm working on this month is brightly colored...stay tuned to see if this trend continues.
