New Photo

Ok as promised here is a shot of some of the little porcelain canvass' I've been working on. These are sitting ready to be fired after being painted. I would love to hear from some of you that do PMC if you agree with me that these would be great framed with PMC. I have a bunch more of these to complete before my show including more oriental designs. There are about 3 or 4 oriental ladies in kimonos standing in various poses and maybe another oriental floral still. Also more fairies. It would also be good to hear from you which designs you folks like best. I always like to hear what people are looking for and what they like the best. Oh the photo is not the best it is a phone photo. I'll put up good photos of them once they are all done.

What's New

With a show coming up in less than two weeks I'm madly working to get some new things ready for the show. One thing I'm doing are some 'porcelain canvass' paintings. Porcelain canvass are very thin, very white industrial strength porcelain. Although these are now somewhat difficult to find they used to be easy to get at china painting shows. They come in a variety of sizes and are sold for painting portraits and scenes on for framing as they are much thinner than a tile. They are very translucent and lovely to paint on. I have managed to cut some down to sizes that will be suitable for pendants and I'm painting some oriental designs an some fairies on some. I think these will be wonderful for pendants with PMC frames made around them. I should have some of the paintings finished in a day or two and will post some photos then.

So I'll be in Tucson September 5,6,7 at the Fall Best Bead Show. I will have the paintings available for sale at the show so stop by and see me. I'll be in booth 69 just across from the registration table.
