Papillon  by Orchid-Black
Ink drawing I made of a butterfly photo I took a year or two ago. The background is kept very simple with graphite lines.

This one is 8" x 6", and is framed to 11" x 9".
1955 Ford by Orchid-Black
1955 Ford
Miniature acrylic painting of a 1955 Ford. I painted this at the show I did last weekend. It already has a home to go to.

At 4" x 2", it's the largest of the mini paintings I've done. I haven't posted any here, because they keep selling before I have the chance to get decent pics of them. I will have them posted soon, since I do have photos, but they're on my other computer.

If you're interested in something similar, please let me know.
Seascape by Orchid-Black
Watercolour and gouache on paper, matted and framed.
Peacock 3 by Orchid-Black
Peacock 3
This is the third peacock in my current series, and the first in watercolour and coloured pencils.  

I'm trying a new method of uploading images, and I'm not certain if this will work to my satisfaction.  We'll see.  ;)
Peacock by Orchid-Black
Acrylic on canvas. Apologies for the bad photo; I'll get a better one up soon. I'm also posting this from my phone. I'll link the stock image used for this asap.

Of New Years and Fresh Starts...

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 8, 2014, 10:46 PM
Hello. I've not been posting much these past... well, seeming epochs of time. Many explanations but not exciting enough to bore you with. I have quite a lot of work I just haven't seen fit to upload.

Having said that, there are some truly exhilarating things happening, not the least of which is within me. For the first time in a long while, I am able to open up true commissions again. I have several projects going at the moment, but I do need some fresh work to keep me on my toes and to provide a bit more income for these... interesting times.

Let me know if there are any subjects/media/ideas you'd like to see my take on. I need new things for my portfolio.  Also keep me in mind if you need to commission something. I have extremely variable rates for my work, and can definitely work with you on meeting your needs.

Thank you.  I hope you have all had a very good holiday season, and that the new year is treating you well.

I want to purchase some items both of my own work and of others'. I have a few points I've scraped together from llama trades, but I want to be able to take advantage of the current promotion for premium members. Please help if you feel so inclined. ;)

I can offer sketches for anyone who donates.
