Pieces for Art Unleashed 2011

Wooden Doodle Bowl for Art Unleashed

Here are a couple of pieces I am donating to this year's Art Unleashed, a yearly silent auction event and all proceed goes to help the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City. The first one is a wooden bowl I got from the thrift store. I painted and distressed it, then doodled all over it. I love the folk art/imperfect quality of the end result. I am also making more of these for two art shows in October. Whatever didn't sell during the show will then be put into my Etsy shop.

Then there are these two little pieces, both done with pencil and watercolor. (The sleeping cat was originally a little sketch in my sketchbook. I enlarged the linework drawing and printed it out on a heavy stock, then colored it with watercolor pencils.)
