One a (week)day: Day 79 – Headphones

051507-headphones.jpg

Piece number 79 (05/15/07). This was suggested by husband when I was trying to think of a topic for today and getting frustrated. He has these great headphones which are really interesting to me – esp. the cord. If these did not have a cord like this, I would have passed on the subject. This is another piece I completed right before the buzzer.

6″x 4″:: $45 unframed original piece, $75 framed original piece. Once the original sells, limited edition prints will be available at $25 (unframed)

–UPDATE 04/05/08– Original has been sold. A limited edition of 100 prints are now available for $30 ($25 for the print and $5 for USPS Priority mail) INTL customers please email me for shipping costs. Also framing is available for additional costs. All prints are on an art paper with a hand-cut signature.

One a (week)day: Day 78 – Manual (in red)

051407-manual.jpg

Piece number 78 (05/14/07). Today I had a proud moment – I moved my husband’s car all by myself. Now I know this sounds like a lame accomplishment, but his car is a MANUAL! This was my first time driving a manual w/o any supervision – my last manual lesson (have had 3 total) was in November. Now I did stall out, but I got the car parked well in a space!

Piece number 76 (05/10/07). Now I know my niece went to the monkey house – she talked about a mommy and baby gorilla and I think she said something resembling chimpanzee. I like using animals as subjects – I found this photo at the National Geographic website and it was it.

One a (week)day: Day 75 – Elephant

050907-elephant.jpg

Piece number 75 (05/09/07). I am again unmotivated. But after listening to my 2.5 year old niece talk about her first trip to the zoo – I knew I wanted to make an animal. Now I could not really understand anything my niece said (she tends to talk really fast on the phone), but I am sure she saw the elephants. This piece did make me smile – I named him Sharpie! I am also planning a field trip for myself to go to the zoo to get some good photos to create work from.

6″x 4″:: $45 unframed original piece, $75 framed original piece. Once the original sells, limited edition giclee prints will be available at $25 (unframed)

I appreciate all the nice words about when I am feeling sick and last week when I was having to work (mainly away from the house). I am glad to see people do check in!

Another Medical Day

Sorry for not being able to do an artwork today. I woke up this morning after a hard week and did something to my right arm – my shoulder has a stabbing pain and my elbow is KILLING me and my hand feels weak and throbbing, I can use my keyboard for only about 15 mins before it hurts too much. I am going back to my heating pad….. I will try again tomorrow!

the art

All my artwork is made of paper. It is only created using paper, glue, and patience. The works on this site represent the pieces that I am attempting to create each weekday. These pieces are available to purchase and once an original is sold prints will become available. Other work can be viewed on my main site - www.sagworks.com. Larger works are available to purchase as originals or prints through sagworks.com. I am also available for commissioned pieces.
