Early draft

Non-needlework creations are dear to my heart. I started as an artist before I knew textiles were even art, so I love all media.

Part of this summer was spent creating cover art for a new e-magazine.

There were several drafts, with the one below being chosen to publish. I had great fun working on this project and hope to find more projects like this to work on in the future.

This pastel painting was published in the fall issue of The Colored Lens, an e-magazine of speculative and fantasy fiction. The Colored Lens is available at Amazon in Kindle format.

The final framed piece

Check out this publication – you can download it to your Kindle or e-reader for the amazing fee of 99 cents! I have read the collected stories and can tell you that it is some of the best writing I have seen in a long time. I devoured each story and couldn’t wait to read the next. They are thought provoking and interesting. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves to read.

The final draft is framed and will be a birthday gift to one of the editors.
