School reunions have never been a big deal to me.  That small town I left in the rear view mirror seems like a million miles and a hundred years ago.  But, the time has come around again, and (perhaps thanks to that pesky social media thing), I've found myself in touch with some of those long-ago classmates, and preparing to head back for the event.  This Blue Devil blue candle box is to be a raffle prize.

What a gorgeous spring we've had!  Still, art never stops, and Paseo Festival will be upon us again in a matter of days.  I'm working up some new body painting designs, based on vintage illustrations.  Photos here, when (if) they happen.  Meanwhile, animal shelter fundraising art show is also fast approaching.   While I expect to have a painting or two in the show, for now I've created these scrappy cats - inspired by the lovely creatures who have been discarded, but still have much to offer those fine people who are willing to give them a home.

More small adornments

What a lovely feeling to have discovered a use for many of the old photos I've been collecting.  They're the perfect vehicle for displaying and delivering jewelry creations, and have the charming power to impart an instant aura, don't you think?
"Opulence" necklace (though truth be told I've made things much more opulent), displayed on Joan Crawford.

Green glass earrings on a French souvenir postcard.

This one is for me.  I reckon I should save one piece for personal wear and marketing.

Rooftop Hula Honey.  I love this girl, and am pleased to finally have a reason to share her with the world.

Sunset Express.  I don't know where they were going, but how dapper they are.

Czarina earrings.   An elegant pair of girls from the Old World.
