Christmas Tree Ornaments

Recently I participated in a swap for 1/12 scale Christmas ornaments.   Well they arrived recently and here is the finished 6 Inch Tree.  Used all the ornaments from the swap and a few others I had on hand.  


Merry Christmas!

December OMB

It’s been a busy year with doing so many unfinished projects during the year.   Keeps me moving and getting lots of things done.   I found a supply of these little cloches and I LOVE THEM. You will probably see them in the future.   

In this festive little room we are waiting for our guests to show up so we can have some snacks and open gifts.   Always fun.

The chair backs have little doll houses featured on them.   Don’t miss the cat who has stacked out her spot.    Oh what fun we are to have!!!!

Watermelon, watermelon and more watermelon.

I love watermelons  and have always had a lot of them in small rooms like my guest bath.   11 or 12 years ago I read about an art display - called 50 creations in 50 days.   The one that caught my attention was 50 Miniature assemblages.    I don’t remember the exact rules of the art contest but I believe it was 6x6 inches.   There were the assemblages, landscapes, portraits, nudes and probably other things.   I thought that takes real concentration to do something for 50 days.   I decided I would do that.   UGH!   Bad.   I got to 8 and decided I didn’t have another original thought on watermelons in my head.   The pictures I display here are only 6 of the 8.   I didn’t think the other 2 worthy of the price of the frame.   It gave me new appreciation of what some people accomplish.   The acrylic in the middle of the display is another attempt to get better at painting.   I like the results.    The 3D pieces are part of my collection of watermelons. 

The latest painting I’ve done.  12x12 inches.  

Thanks for viewing my blog.
