1. a sweet little duet....

autumn serenade
6x6, mixed media on canvas panel

between a cute little bird and a wide eyed baby bear...an "autumn serenade".

this is the second (but it sure won't be the last) piece i created this summer when i was trying my hand at mixed media. can i just tell you what a total blast it was creating this piece?! so much fun and a bit out of the box for me as i am a SUPER DUPER AWESOME planner. seriously. it's one of my finer traits....i think so, anyway. ;) this little creation was kind of spontaneous....kind of....

i knew i wanted to do a bear with an autumn color scheme. the rest just kind of happened the more i kept adding different layers, different supplies...and, being my absolute own worst critic well, i'm rather pleased with the way it turned out. i mean, c'mon..look at the face on the baby bear...you just gotta love him. :)

PRINTS available here. ORIGINAL PAINTING is FOR SALE. contact me here if interested. 

also, here's a link to sweet ophelia...a colorful owl done in this same mixed media style.

perhaps 2017 will bring about some more of these little *experiments*....

2. my first mixed media *experiment*....

ophelia's nocturne
6x6 mixed media on canvas panel
©the enchanted easel 2016
this summer i wanted to try my hand at some small mixed media pieces. i decided to start with a theme of sorts as far as a color palette went....i chose just a few to start with...red, orange, teal and brown. from there two little creatures were born. ophelia here is the first.

mixed media was kind of new for me. i have so many art supplies laying around my home that instead of looking at all of them, well i wanted to try to actually USE them. my paintings/commissions are acrylic on stretched canvas so i never really get to play with my oil pastels or my inks (OMG-can we say "obsessed" now?!) or my tons of scrapbook papers and supplies, etc.

one day i sat down in between commissions and said "what the heck...let's give it a shot!" and so i did...and had a blast doing so. i used everything from paper to water soluble graphite pencils to palette knives to my fingers for this piece. even got some old sheet music from my keyboard ("ophelia" from tori amos to be exact-hence the name of this little owl) and went to town with that. a total blast this was-from start to finish.

PRINTS are available here and the ORIGINAL painting is also AVAILABLE. contact me here if interested. hope you love her as much as i do...owls just say "fall" and "halloween" to me. one of my favorite times of the year!

first things first...is it really only 4 days til Christmas?! wow. ok, i digress...

today's FEATURED PAINTING is this sweet little bluebird. reminiscent of spring? i'm sure. fitting, considering this Christmas will not be white (thanks, global warming. you stink). so, little Blue Rhapsody here is trying to make it easier on me...the warm temps in DECEMBER. :(

24. Sketchbook-in-Progress: A Peek

I'm back from a last-minute holiday, jetlag, and then general panic as I try to catch up on my artwork for college. So here's a peek at what I've been working on, just a couple of the many ideas and sketches that I've been scribbling out so that I have a better idea of what my final project will be. Which is due far too soon for my liking ...






The bird probably won't make it to the final piece, but the drippy dots might, in a slightly different form. I'm very tempted to place them, as is, on some clothing over at my PAOM store though ... if I have the time. Will keep you posted.

Have a fantastic week. Cheers.
