‘In the Mood to Bake’

I was in the mood to bake cookies yesterday but was missing a few ingredients, so instead I painted a small 5×7 watercolor expressing my desire to bake! :)

Here’s a shot of some works in progress! (yes, my desk is messy. Just the way I like it!) The largest girl I’ve started tonight, and my other girl, well, it took me a while to decide what I’d come up with for the background but I’m getting there. The cat’s done and is one of severals like it.

Productive insomnia

I just spent the night designing my business card and ordering 250 of them. It's nothing incredibly complicated but I had to make too many decisions and I'm not very good at that!  Should it have a back, no back, what art to put on there? Etc, etc, etc...! Well, $35 later it's finally done and ordered along with...a matching pen and 3 sheets of matching stickers I think will be great to stick in the back of paintings. Haha, Vistaprint luring me with so many options before check out! Well, it's done and it looks like this:

‘John Henry’

Welcome to my Livejournal!

I'm a french artist living in New Orleans and who loves to make whimsy art with a sometimes dark or strange twist. You can find me at carolineryanart.com, on Facebook , Twitter and now Livejournal :). Although I have a blog on my official website, I decided to add a second one here because of the community LJ provides and also because I just love LJ and have been on it since it started what seems like an eternity ago.  I hope to have some interesting discussions here.
