This is a portrait of my grandaughter Alisha Valverde done in transparent watercolor. I like the combination of realism mixed in with impressionism. This is an example of what I teach at my studio in Glendale AZ.
This light weight delicate charm bracelet was a project not chosen for Art Unraveled 2007. Made last year for my daughter Corrie Anderson, it features handmade wire wrapped charms with family photos and text embedded in Opal resin. A charm bracelet class will be scheduled soon at Cory's Art Studio. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for class information.
Anthony Hall adding detail to his models face with his favorite three hair brush. This is the extra large faux painted background that I spoke about during my class at Art Unraveled 2007. Anthony is a very disciplined student who creates good art and is also, a great photographer.
Ella Holland busy working out a design in watercolor. Ella is one of my faithful Wednesday night students who will tackle any project in the name of learning. ( I think she just likes hanging out at my studio ) Ella has come such a long way and is producing beautiful art pieces. You Go Girl!
It was a cold day in Paris... I found someone else he said, as he packed a bag and left me, leaving behind his favorite navy blazer and red silk tie. In anger and tears, I ripped the blazer to shreds, cut up the tie, and tore into the jewelry he had gifted me....Today I design artisan jewelry and accessories from those shreds of fabric, buttons off the blazer, and bits of broken jewelry. Every piece has a story...SWEET REVENGE !!!
