One a (week)day: Day 124 – Rooster

082107-rooster.jpg

Piece number 124 (08/21/07). So, here was my train of thought for today’s work. I am still feeling yucky and made a yummy chicken soup for dinner. Now looking around the internet I found roosters a bit more interesting looking than chickens (tomorrow that sentiment may change). So cock-a-doodle-do!!! On a sidenote – my husband suggested a slightly different name for – but I thought that might give me viewers looking for something a bit different.

–UPDATE 12/22/08– Original has been sold. A limited edition of 100 digital 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 an additional cost. All prints are on an art paper with a hand-cut signature.

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

Email for availability and payment directions or for more information.

One a (week)day: Day 123 – Wrench

082007-wrench.jpg

Piece number 123 (08/20/07). Well I am still sick, though I was with it enough today to function somewhat like a normal person would and I thought it was safe to use my knife again.  I am happy with how it turned out – the colors match my mood, a bit drab but want to feel good and be happy.

One a (week)day: Day 122 – Captain

081707-captain.jpg

Piece number 122 (08/17/07). Today’s piece is based on the theme from Illustration Friday of “Captain”. Again I went with my first instinct. At my last desk job there was a guy who would wear a captain hat all the time, I never knew his name – just called him “The Captain” for 4 years. To make matters better last weekend I met a captain of sailboat.

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)

Still sick

I am still sick. I have a lovely head cold. My day was spent being uncomfortable with tissues up my nose. (I tell you I am a real winner) Between the sneezing and the uncomfortable body aches I was able to get some sleep and a bit of work done. Though with all the sneezing using a knife is not a smart idea. I am hoping to feel better tomorrow!

One a (week)day: Day 121 – Radish

081407-radish.jpg

Piece number 121 (08/14/07). Today I was struggling for a theme and the husband declared “YOUR THEME WILL BE RADISH”. At first I was like what kind of theme is this. Then I started to think about radishes and they are quite interesting. I wanted to do something a bit different than Day 34: Garlic so I thought this triptych was an interesting idea.

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) The original of this has been sold and is available as a print.

Email for availability and payment directions or for more information.

One a (week)day: Day 120 – Butterfly 2

081307-butterfly2.jpg

Piece number 120 (08/13/07). I was in a foul mood today due to a headache which I have had for over 24 hrs. I wanted to do something pretty and our neighborhood has had a ton of butterflies recently. I figured something pretty would make me feel better – it did not! A Tylenol did though…. (Sadly I can’t take pain killers unless I really need them – they have a bad reactions with another Rx I am on) Each wing is one continuous piece and they each have the black inset cut framing an iridescent wing.

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)

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.
