Heather’s Art~ 2016 Year in Review

Standard

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

Stinnett Studio

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!

Heather

Hand Painted Walking Stick~ Flower Garden #1

Standard

So it was my turn to make a walking stick. 🙂 I was too chicken to do a carving like my folks had, but painting was more up my alley so I made this Garden Nature Stick. It was a lot of fun and I would love to make more! Each bug and flower has their names written beside them. I signed and numbered this stick as #1! I’m very excited and hope that it will find its way into someone’s heart and home! Its available in my Dad’s Etsy shop at:stinnettstudio.etsy.com .

The stick includes Hand Painted: Black Eyed Susan, Ivy Vine, Bumble Bee, Honey Bee, Glass Wing Butterfly, Morning Glory, Blue Butterfly, Ivy Vine, Leopard Frog, Snail and Meadow Mushroom, and Lotus.

This is a Hand carved, sea turtle necklace made by my mom. I love the way she painted him, he looks like he’s made out of stone! It makes a great choker necklace by using the cinch bead to resize.

It can be found in our Etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/cottagemadegifts?ref=hdr_shop_menu

A woman that fears the Lord blog

Pro_31:30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

I painted this yesterday as a graduation card for my friend. She’s a good girl and I’m proud of her. Praying that God will continue to direct her path and help her to know what is his will for her.  I tried to make this damsel in my painting look similar to my friend. It was fun to try and find the right paints to match her hair color.
