Mani of the Day: Bright Deco & Stargazing. (http://bit.ly/1I8VhQ4)

The pattern accents with the sparkling solid works well, don't you think?

I love these wraps way more than I expected to. They are light lavender in some lights and deep violet in others, but always sparkly.

Interesting little article, this. 
When people thought I was a woman they commented differently on my work.

Wax to clean, silver to work with, and files to transfer around between websites.

Mani of the Day: Metallic Chrome Silver & Silver White Damask,retired. (http://bit.ly/1IpPMM3)

I know this would be a challenging one to get just right - chrome shows every tiny bump - but I love this one all the same. Since the White Damask is retired, I'd probably layer White Romance over instead. It's close to Damask.

Working on the Thai weave.

+Suzanne Roberts thank you <3 

The first one is for Steve, and I'll work out the production kinks on this one. 

Still not finished, obviously - more weaving left, link repair, closures, clasp, patina, etc. :D

There are so many good designs going away!

I'll post the album with all of them soon - just got Steve home from his first cataract surgery, so getting settled back in. (He's sleeping, and it went well we are told.)

Making progress on the chain. Shown over Steve's wrist, to check how the width looks. (I'm happy with it.)

Local Art Store wants to sell my encaustic paints. 

I'm trying to work out how do I need to label if they are NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN.

Especially the cadmium yellow.

Anyone? I've been through all the Gov links and articles, and am irked that I'm probably going to have to drop $45 on the damn ASTM guidelines.

Story
Tagline
Chaos Magician. Not single. Not interested.
Introduction

"Queen of Paints" - +Nikki Crome


Believes in magic & common sense. 

I drink a lot of coffee. 

I swear.

Mistakes and accidents are my forte; chaos is at the center of my heart and soul.

I have three brilliantly amazing children.

I am a life-taught artist - books, other artists, a ton of practice. I'm pretty damn good. 

If I wasn't an artist, I'd be a biochemist. Or psychologist. Or a sociologist. Or writer. Or video game designer. Or in marketing. Or a philosopher. Or a sports coach.  Just not anything in politics. I HATE politics. 

I don't watch TV, and only rarely watch movies. This is by choice, and has nothing to do with free time. If I have free time, it means I need a new hobby!

I consider the Bible an interesting collection of historical metaphors. 

I consider reality relative, subjective. If I say something is the truth or true, this is simply my opinion based on my understanding of events and my observation of the situation. If you tell me something is true, I'm going to assume that your statement is your opinion, as well. If you insist your opinion is truer than mine, I am going to suggest you read some Nietzsche and Julian Jaynes and then get back to me. 
Bragging rights
Internationally collected fine art painter before the age of 30. Have seen Hell, swum in High Water, lived to laugh about both.
