Art By Miriam is pleased to release her A Curious Stare pastel painting.  The eyes of the red fox look curiously at you as if asking a question.

This pastel painting has a red fox of reds and beige in the middle ground with a black background.  I may do this painting on black paper one day.  I did not have the exact rust red of a fox and had to make do with what I had.  At first the colors of the fox were too stark, then I added a red brown overall and it looked better.  I painted this painting because of the eyes.  The eyes of an animal are what a person is drawn to.  This one has a curious stare.  My daughter loves foxes so this one’s for her.

A Little Out of Season

Commentary on My Art, Felt Craft

You may notice that I changed the wording of my blog a little. It’s a little more inclusive of other projects I take on besides art. I also do a variety of sewing crafts that I donate to Catholic Charities Maine, USA that are raffled off to raise funds for programs all over the state.

One of my projects is the Twelve Days of Christmas ornaments in felt by Bucilla (a popular manufacturer of felt kits). I have three of the twelve done and I have the 3rd one to show you today. It’s the Three French Hens. It’s the 1st picture I’ve taken with my Surface Pro. I could even do some basic editing.

After I get done here I’m going to get a little breakfast than look at everything everyone else has been doing. It’s so exciting to get to know people on the blogs.

Thank you all for your likes and comments it’s a lot of fun and very encouraging!

I’m back!

Colored Pictures, Fantasy

I’ve been busy learning how to use my new Surface Pro 4 and I’ve finally come up for air.

It looks like the people I follow have all been very creative and I’ve spent the last 2 1/2 hours looking at all the art, which is mostly what I follow that I have met through my blog.

I haven’t done any new art work on this new pc yet but I do have a colored illustration to show you. Here it is:
