Welcome to Venice

It was a warm Spring day when I exited the train station in Venice and realized how different, exciting and fun this trip would be! Sadly, most of my slides from this trip are missing.
I stumbled across a tube of Venetian here we are!

One fish, two fish...

So, isn't this how we all feel sometimes?

Black Tie Blue Jean Event

Leather Look Wallet
Oil on Canvas
4" x 5"

BT&BJ Wallet
Oil on Canvas
5" x 7"

These are my Black Tie & Blue Jean trompe loeil leather oil paintings for the auction.

I use trompe loeil method for my Northwest Coast Native American style artwork so I thought I would try to use that for something else as well. The theme for the Black Tie is Western so I decided to try my hand at a leather tooling look. They put center pieces on the tables for sale. Last year they did art boots but I didn't get to do one. Had my hands full with other things. I'm glad to be able to do something even if it is small. Hope you are all having fun creating.
