Santa with Crow by Mike Kline

I just got my Moleskine back and it is full of wonderful art.  However, there were also some midstream blank pages, and I have packaged it up to send it on to have the missing pages filled.  I grabbed this one as a lead-in to my story, because it reminds me of Biker Buddy (the hubster, Keith), who always dresses as Santa at Christmas (for my delectation). :D And we have a crow (toy) who looks like this one and I love Mike's graphic style!

I have my new Moley but haven't started on it and am having surgery the day after tomorrow (knee replacement Friday September 21, 2018).  Meanwhile, I do hope to do some work in it SOON!

Arctic Flora, with alcohol Inks
This was my first-ever attempt to use alcohol inks and I was not pleased--it's like trying to paint with fast-drying marker fluid.  It bleeds through.

Grey Morning
This was my second ever attempt to paint with alcohol Inks, which this time I did over grey gesso. Still not pleased.  Need much more practice and research.

The Flesh Market:  Innocence
Pocket item, acrylic.

Crepuscular
This is a gomuban (linoleum) print with woodprint color details.  Pocket item.

The Landing
This is an envelope painted with acrylic (and pen).  I wouldn't have painted the envelope except that it was Sunday and I couldn't mail it anyway.
