Changing it up

You guys may have noticed that my old website is gone and in it's place is something NEW. I felt it was time for a change. I'm really excited about the direction the website is going and I hope all of you enjoy it. It's not finished yet so hold on a little while longer. By July/Aug. it should be 100% go.

I finally have some time to update all of you since Konnor was born. Here is a pic of my new little elf baby.

I also have been working on some new paintings. The first is called First Love and was inspired by a picture I took of my artist friend Jackie and my son Konnor.

The next painting is called Kelsey's Wee One and is taken from a pic of Konnor and our babysiter.

The last one is my favorite and most important. It's in honor of my artist friend Selina Fenech who has breast cancer. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Baby Update.....and some pics!

Konnor Wimond McElfish joined us on Feb. 11th. Although I have next to no time right now trying to organize two little boys, my mind is overflowing with ideas on what to paint! I'm so ready to put paint to paper again. (pictures in my next post....coming as soon as they upload).

My first project is going to be one for a family member, so you'll have to hang tight until I can do a new painting for all of you. Hint, hint, it's going to have wings to it.

Now on to some fun that I stole from two favorite fairy mommy artist friends Jessica and Jacqualine
1.) If I were a doll, the accessories packaged with me would be: chop sticks, jeans, white tank and flip flops, watercolors, brown lipstick.

2.) I have an irrational fear of: Flying in planes. I had no trouble with this as a kid because I lived in my head. Now I can't wrap my mind around all that weight flying that high in the sky.

9.) Next door to my house is? My house is connected to other houses but I do have a park on the left side of the house.
10.) My nails are: acrylic and clear colored. This is one of my little vices. I've been getting my nails done since 1991. I'm addicted!
11.) The last person to call me was: My husband

12.) Why is your (myspace) 1 your 1? My little boy Kaleb.
13.) Know how to cook? Yep, but it only tastes good to me.

Baby Update

Wow, it has been a long time since I've posted an update. I am in nesting mode right now.......Feb.11th is the big day for the arrival of Konnor Witmond McElfish. Here is his 4-D ultra sound

Needless to say, I will be busy over the next month or so. Hopefully I will get back to the painting table and be able to produce some new works. Until then, I want to leave you with some paintings I did before Christmas that I forgot to post. It was inspired by my fellow fantasy artist friend Selina Fench.

The second one I'm leaving you with I"m not as happy with, but am going to show it and sell it anyway. Funny how sometimes you have these great ideas in your head and then they just don't turn out the way you want on paper. That's what happened with this little one.

This last one I really liked the girl, but do not like what I did with the background. I am be changing it someday but for now I'll show you Classical Movement.

It's been a long time since I've updated here, so you will all have to forgive me, but I have been busy painting. The first piece is called Tears From Heaven. It's a mixed media piece done in coffe (yes coffee), acrylic, pastel, colored pencil and crayon. It's about 30"x22"

This image is for my Protection Wings series and is for Autism Protection

The Angel of Light is for the back of a book that I was asked to illustrate (more on this later)

A Touch of Innocence is a very special piece that I did of my husband and son. It's done in acrylic and house spakel. I took the picture this summer and just had to turn it into a painting.

This is also for the Protection Wings site and is for those suffering with Bi-Polar/Depression
