My Raydori Is Here

I had a different post in mind for tonight… but then this arrived this morning…

2014-05-05 20.15.01a

It is my beautiful, limited edition, hand made Raydori!  (That is a Midori or Fauxdori, made by Ray Blake himself).  In a combined effort with Kate Bernasconi.  This is #7 in the limited edition Luxor series   And I am in love with it.  I think for the foreseeable future, it will be that ‘square leather thing’ attached to my left hand. 🙂

Coptic Journal

I made this journal a couple weeks ago.  It was my first coptic journal.  I don’t know why, but I never make anything for hubby.  (friends, family, myself, but not him)  Mostly cause when I do offer, he says ‘No, thank you.’  But I had decided that it was his turn.  He likes turtle, so I sat him down and made him go through a book of animal patterns.  I was not overly surprise when this was the pattern he chose.  I am very impressed with my first try.  And I hope he is.  Maybe he will let me make something for him again some day…

pencil drawn house

Been a while since I did much drawing.  Kinda stalled out a little on Mark Kistler’s drawing course.  I followed a rabbit trail, and haven’t wandered back… yet.  Here is the last picture lesson I did…

The muse grabbed my by the neck the other day… I had to draw faces!  So where the muse leads…

I tried to make them different. noses, eyes, hair, even face shape.  Faces are not my strength  but I think they came out OK…
