Finally...new work!



good morning all!!

So finally this post has new work....I know, it's been a while, but I swear to you, I have been productive, I have made lots of new things as well as been hard at work on a large commission that I finished late last night, I have no photos of it yet but will say, that it is really something...I hate to be egotistical but...I love it, I can;t wait for her to get it, and I can;t wait to show it off.

Yay

Oh and (finally) I was able to start listing the line of art cards (aceo) that I do for Charity, many of you who are long term readers and buyers (and friends obviously) know that my mom was diagnosed with Breast Cancer a few years ago, she fought and won her battle, but not a day goes by that I don't fear that I will get a phone call from her saying it is back....with that in my mind I have started a line of cards in which a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

The theme for this year's cards are classic film stars, I have already done a Marilyn, which is listed in my shop, and an Audrey Hepburn which will go up later this morning. I am going to keep up with the cards for the rest of October and beyond, I am hoping I will get a great response to the cards, crossing my fingers!!

The other picture I featured today is a new small collage called "I Dreamt I Went To Manderly Again" there was something haunted about this piece it reminded me of "Rebecca" hence the title...

well, I hate ti post new work and dash, but I have a lot of computer things to do and some packaging today...oh, and paying bills, lots and lots of bills, lol.

Yes, this is the glamorous side of being an artist.

The new work is beautiful, as always, but the story behind the ACEOs make them even more so.

I hope they all fly off the virtual shelves and pray that your mom remains healthy and you never, ever get that call.

Take care,

KJ

I will check out your charity cards. My aunt passed away from breast cancer a year ago last month and my grandmother is a survivor (15 years now) so the cause is near and dear to my heart. I hope your mom continues to stay strong and healthy.

By the way I really like the altered box you recently added to your shop. The colors are gorgeous.

Jenn the new work is just incredible - and I can't wait to see the commission project. I love what you are doing with the art cards too. My grandmother who I mentioned in my blog post died of breast cancer (although she was first diagnosed in her 20's and lived till her 60's so she had many many wonderful years of living) so it is something that is very close to my heart.
