Something I was working on with such pleasure today.... small deerscapes. It was so satisfying to tear and glue these mini-dreams, little idle fantasies where deer go and play amidst the blue wormy woods.
I made this blue-jean paper myself, under the watchful eye of my dear friend Habiba Smallen
(currently in Korea giving love and instruction to the young). These mini works of art will soon go up for sale at my favourite flower and gift shop, Coriander Girl. Coriander Girl is doing better than ever, and for those of you who haven't seen it yet, please do yourself a favor and go check out her dreamy little den of petals and colourful joys. Her blog is here (it's so fun to look at and read...go ahead! She's so great!) and the website is www.coriandergirl.com for any inquiries. She is such a kind and happy person, everyone should go and say hello. (She is nice enough to sell my cards and artwork at her store, too!) Thank you and love to all my little deers xx e.

The Illustrious: General Wolfe
Mixed media on wood
Hey! Have a look at a drawing I just submitted to the Square Foot show at AWOL gallery today. It's part of a series (yet to be completed) called The Illustrious. It's featuring famous Canadians with fabulous names. For example, here you have General Wolfe...and what is that hanging about his head? ha ha! Watch for more to come...I've been thinking of a few people who need drawing: Michael J FOX, Marilyn BELL, Bobby ORR, Douglas CARDINAL and so many more. If you think of anyone with a particularly drawable name, let me know. xx e
ps. See that wolf skull in the upper right corner. Apparently, General Wolf had a regiment named after him at death, the 17th Lancers. Their badge, which i found kind of cool, is a skull and crossbones. I've adapted it a bit for the drawing. :) e
