After a few month hiatus (translated to mean that I just didn't create anything for a while), I hit the drawing and painting table with a frenzy this holiday season. I started out by doing a strongly inspired-by-another artist (we won't call it copying) for the highly anticipated arrival of my first granddaughter in February. Then I wanted to do another and well, one thing led to another and I was on a string of watercolor and pen and ink pieces. One for each grandchild. It was a totally different style for me and I enjoyed seeing the progression from the first to the most recent, completed just 2 days before it was gifted to my oldest grandson.

Well, I think I am finished painting Dad's guitar. Maybe. I found that by the 4th painting, it was getting pretty easy. Perhaps better put... the creativity flowed with ease. I painted these two guitars for my two older sisters, Karen and Sandy, to give to them for their birthdays this year. Now all 4 daughters of Hugh Hendrix have their own paintings of his guitar to hang on their walls. Of course, I still have the original guitar. : )

I'd been simmering a thought of making a mermaid collage piece for several weeks when a dear friend hands me a bag of Architectural Digest magazines on Wednesday evening. Thanks, Cindy. My procrastinative excuse of having no magazines to chop up had just disappeared. The mermaid is actually done in three pieces, with a silver thread holding her together. I had a therapist once who led me in an exercise where I imagined gold wires running all through my body keeping me grounded and at the same time silver wires running all through me keeping me connected to the universe. I guess my mermaid is more connected to the universe...
Her "frame" is a rusty old wire hanger I found in the parking lot at work. So hard to pass by things that could be made into found art.

I've really enjoyed making these five flowered scarves. The colors of this scarf are spot on for early autumn. I will be donating this one to the Crime Stoppers Cops, Robbers and Superheroes event next weekend.
I decided to donate a piece to any charity auction I can find... just to get my art and my name out there.
My art all falls under my umbrella of: Gigi! artful endeavors.
One day I will open my gallery under the same name.
