My first ATC..

Now I have made my first ATR (artist trading card). 
ATC has only 2 rules, these rules are the size has to be 2.5 x 3.5 and can only be traded not sold (Susan Burgess).
Something is wrong with my camera, I cant get my pic in focus... not good. 
ATC can be made of what ever you can think of on which paper you can find.. I love these small work, difficult but fun to make.

Today I was on a online class with Amy McDonald. I had so much fun trying to follow Amy, trying to read the blog and listening to Amy talking to the others. I did learn a lot, like painting with a dry brush, gluing a face to the paper before starting and painting all over it then trying to find the face again. Im going to practice and do one more to night.

To morrow I will take part in an online workshop with Amy McDonald, dont know what we are going to make, only thing I know is that we are going to have fun.. It starts at 3 Icelandic time and I cant wait... While waiting Im working on my butterfly girl...

When working with clay we have to have stamps, these were very easy to make and looks so nice when I have used them on my clay woks and my students love to use them on their work.

One of my favorites, a big one in beautiful colors.

My summer angel.
I did paint this angel for few years ago, bright colors, looks happy.

It is winter time...

Christmas time in Iceland..... 
Now it is very cold, snow all over the place and not easy to move around. Better to stay in the house and light the candles  and enjoy the holidays.

My old paintings

Before I did just to paint angles, everything had wings and most of my works where in brown colors or dark colors, now I´m trying to use more bright colors. This one is one of my favorits. Given away to a good issues.

That one is a big one, 150 cm long and is hanging over my sofa. I love this one to..      this one is mine..

Those are my friends, standing on a barrel and looking around...

This one is a big one, I did the painting before Fabulous faces, to day I would do the face different, but this one is nice, the girl does look at you where ever you stand, she follows with her eyes. Sold.

These one is even bigger, she is different from the others, both the colors and the images. Sold.

This was the first time I did paint fruits, Im happy with that one and I think I´ll keep it for my self..

My birthday book, where I can write down all my friends birthdays.

Now I have made one more which I´m using on my Birthday book. Im very happy with this one, think she is almost perfect, the girl.. My birthday book has been in my head for a long time and now I have finished making one I´m very happy with. Six people can have birthday the same day with out space problems, october the 5th I have 5 friends who are having birthday so I can still get to know one more :-) 

After class paintings

After the class I have made these two, the brown one is ok but the blue one does look so sad or I dont know what it is, maybe I have to work a little bit more on the face, put on more shadows..

Fabulous faces week 6

The last week we should Integrating our portrait into the background and create interesting hair. I had problem with the text, now I have bought stamps and I hope it will go better next time. 

Fabulous faces week 5

Week 5 was fun, now we did a little more, we did add elements/items to our portret. I did try to draw my cat, the cat is cute but he did not look like my cat.. 

Fabulous faces week 4

Week 4 was little easier than the week before.Drawing & shading a profile portrait in color. I like this one, but it was a bit of a work with the hair before I was happy.

Fabulous faces week 3

The third week was not as easy, I had a little problem with this one, the hair did not look good so I made some curly to try to try to fix it..

Fabulous faces week 2

The second week we did drawing and shading  a front facing portrait in colour & styling the portrait. I was so happy when I was working with mine, I had never been good on drawing faces but this one was fabulous, I thought. What a great teacher Tam is.

Fabulous faces week 1

The first week with Tam´s Fabulous Faces we did drawing & shading a front facing portrait in graphite. It was fun and easy to make. Tam is a wonderful teacher taking one step at the time. Very easy to follow.
