Who else has projects that didn't work out? I have fifteen of these tiny cupcakes. I have no idea what to do with them. I was going to make them into pins, or magnets. Then I went looking online, and I think there are a lot of them out there. Different than mine. More appealing… Continue reading Tiny Cupcakes
So I had a thought that I should do something a little different, yet stay true to my basic theme. I like how these turned out, but I don't know that I should do any more. My basic theme for my work is listed as "original art by Jennifer" because there is only so many… Continue reading Painted Pendants
So I recently got out my colored pencils. I am not actually sure what inspired me to do so, but I'm glad that I did. One of my favorite mediums has always been colored pencil. I am sitting here writing this, racking my brain trying to figure out what brought on my desire to use… Continue reading Wildflower with Bees in Colored Pencil
Well, you know how I said I thought that I was going to do a whole series of herb paintings? About that.... I think this might be my last one for a bit. I'm not sure if I'm actually bored with them, or if I just want to do something different for awhile. I enjoyed… Continue reading Thyme in Pebeo
I continued on my theme of herbs for my next two paintings. I'm not sure if I will keep it up or not, now. I thought I would make it into a whole series, but now I'm not so sure. Sometimes I get bored with the same thing over and over. Who knows, I may… Continue reading Thyme in Acrylic

This post will be about this piece: Also, have a look here and see the listing on Etsy! When you work with these kinds of paints, they are very flowy. The intent… Continue reading Basil in Pebeo Paints
I had so much fun making these! I've only made three, but I would like to make more. I can't even decide which one I like the best. They are all pretty much the same, except with different background colors. I made these on my teeny, tiny canvas's. I painted the backs and sides black.… Continue reading Pizza paintings!
This little coffee painting was one of the first listings that I posted on my Etsy page. https://www.etsy.com/listing/491224146/coffee-art-kitchen-decor-foodie-gift?ref=shop_home_active_19 I was, and still am, proud of this piece. It was one of the first ones that I tried using a new technique with these Pebeo Fantasy Paints. I created it on a very tiny canvas. The surface… Continue reading Pretty little coffee picture.
Well, I've had an idea floating around in my head for at least a week now. It's spring, which means everything is starting to grow. It means gardening. People are starting to think about what plants and vegetables they are going to grow this year. Where they will put everything. How it will all look,… Continue reading How I made this. #3 Basil.
Well, I thought I would start a series of posts about my step by step process. I'm not sure how long this will go for, but it seemed like a cool idea. I know that I am always interested in other people's process, so I figured, why not share mine? I don't always remember to… Continue reading How I drew this. #2 in a series.
