Hello my friends! Thank you all for sticking with me, as we enter another year! Since I started in 2012 I’ve gained 172 followers! Thank you all so much for your friendship! Here is my year in review for 2016! Other than birthday cards for folks, I really haven’t done many paintings this year. I guess I’ve gotten a little discouraged when it comes to fine art. People don’t seem to be buying them like they used to. So I’m trying to express my art in other directions. I’m trying to become a book illustrator. However, I’m still making hand carved jewelry and selling them on my mom and dad’s Etsy shops:
Cottage Made Gifts
Here are a few examples of what I’ve made this year:
We also are selling some vintage Barbie’s and accessories in our Cottage Made Gifts, shop. They were found in the attic of a very old house and kept safe in a Barbie Case.
This year, I’ve been working hard on becoming a book illustrator. I’m also trying to self publish my own children’s book called, The Monster. I’m hoping to get it published by March of 2017.
Thank you guys again! Praying for many blessings this New Year!
My Mom made another one of her beautiful Juniper wood, Hummingbird Necklaces! I really like the complimentary colors of the stone beads she added with it.
This necklace is also available in our etsy shop at: stinnettstudio.etsy.com
Thanks for looking!
My mom has made three new, beautiful necklaces hand carved out of Juniper wood. These rustic bird’s are so cool and unique. Their pose makes them look like they’re in flight. I love all of the colors she chose and how they have a lovely gold sheen.
Hello everyone! This is my latest painting that I made as a birthday card. The medias are watercolor and pastel.
Lately I’ve been working on illustrations and putting them on my other blog, heatherstinnett.wordpress.com. Please take a look and follow!
Hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving!
Psa 36:7 How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
Mat 23:37 …how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings…
For the touch ups on this painting, I used watercolor pencils and only slightly brushed them in places. Something about watercolor is never give up! You can usually work things out if you keep at it! In the end satisfy yourself and be pleased with your work. 😉
This was painted on a 140 lb. watercolor card, dimensions: 5″x6 7/8″ ( 12.7 x 17.4 cm)
