A day or two early, but my wish for all who read this blog to enjoy more positive experiences in this coming New Year of 2009 than the tough times we have all shared in these current days, is just as sincere today as it will be on Thursday. Happy New Year, one and all!

'Kisses for Paula'

Now that the Day has come and gone, and I hope all enjoyed a pleasant Christmas Day, I can post this little work which was a Christmas gift for a friend. This little one is about 4" square.

'Artists For Lyn'

A quick mention today that I have posted three works to the page set up in support of our artist friend, Lyn St. Clair. I will donate 50% of sale proceeds to Lyn and encourage you to click the link for Artists Helping Lyn in my Links list and check out the works posted so far. There will be more coming from other artists, so do take a look often. There are links to all artists posting work for you to get in touch directly with them to make arrangements for sale and shipping, etc.

A 'Taste' of Things to Come

Ah yes, a bit of chocolate here, a bit of chocolate there . . . and a little 'taste' of things to come! This little (about 4" x 6" image size) work is posted here today to whet your appetite as it will be one of the works I shall be offering through EBay beginning in January; just a little teaser taste today!

Here is the latest result of my current investigation into marbledom! I think this one is going to be posted in the next few days over on the 'Artists For Lyn' blog page as one of the works from the sale of which I will be donating a portion of the proceeds. The image is 6" x 4" and additional particulars will be posted with it on the other blog page.

As many of my artist friends have been posting on their blogs, today I will follow suit with this notice of a very special blog page that has been started in support of our dear artist friend, Lyn St. Clair, who has recently undergone surgery for breast cancer. As with many of us, Lyn has no insurance and we are getting together to raise some much needed funds to help Lyn out over these next weeks and months as she recovers from the surgery, pays off hospital and doctor's bills, and also begins a series of chemo treatments.

This special blog page, noted below and also linked from my Link list (Artists Helping Lyn), will be an ever changing series of wonderful works of art being made available by Lyn's friends who will donate a portion of, or in some cases, the total proceeds from the sale of each work to Lyn. Several works are posted now and there will be many more to come, so please take a look and come back often as new works will be added as pieces sell. This is a wonderful opportunity not only to grab a fine piece of art from some incredible artists, but to offer a helping hand to a dear friend in these tough economic times.

I will be posting some images of pieces I will be offering within the next week or so, but in the meantime, take a look at what is there now.

'Marble #2' - image size, just shy of 2" x 3"

Tuesday, December 02, 2008

With the first of the Christmas discs playing away on the Bose this afternoon, I am back at the drawing board! A well deserved couple of weeks 'off' and doing other things has left me ready to get back to work. With Christmas coming up shortly, I have begun a series of small works that will wind up being little gifts for friends. This is the first of several marbles that will be easing me back into the graphite world over the next couple of weeks. This one is just about an inch and three quarters by three inches.
