Recently I wondered what it would be like to fill a white space with black shapes.  This small ponderence started me down another art journey that resulted in my first sale of Art.  Now, to be clear, I have sold things before.  I sell my art on greeting cards, mirrors, magnets, a bird house and of course I have sold lots of jewelry.  But this sale was the first piece of Art for Art’s sake – Art that has no other function than to be admired.  

The sale then inspired me to make more of my black and white or “Filigree” pieces.  I now have a series of 6, all available on my Etsy site (http://www.beautifullystrange.etsy.com)  Pictured here is “Bird on a Pedestal” my latest work in the series.  As always, I would love to hear your thoughts.

As many of you know, I have recently been ill and required minor surgery.  I have received a wonderful outpouring of affection from friends far and wide making thank you cards a necessity.  So I took this opportunity to make a few new pieces of art.  I figured if I am gonna send a card, why pay for someone else’s work?  I would much rather make something and pass it on.  The fruits of my labors became a set of 4 bird themed cards, and a set of 4  with trees.  They will soon be off to all my lovely friends and relatives. 

I was pleased enough to post a few here and offer both sets for sale at my etsy shop www.beautifullystrange.etsy.com.

As always, I would love to hear your thoughts.
