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.

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)

One a (week)day: Day 119 – Emergency

081007-emergency.jpg

Piece number 119 (08/10/07). Today’s piece is based on the theme from Illustration Friday of “Emergency”. This is the only thing I was able to come up with that was not too close in concept to Day 98 – Surgery. To be honest I like it, but I think I could have done a few things on it better. Though I am really happy with the ambulance doors.

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)

Piece number 118 (08/09/07). This one has been in my hopper for sometime now. I needed a simpler piece today to fit in-between physical therapy and my artist talk later this evening. Typically, I spend half my day in my studio cutting and the other half on my computer.

One a (week)day: Day 117 – Walk on the Beach

080807-walk-on-beach.jpg

Piece number 116 (08/08/07). This is from a friends suggestion. Today was not my day. It took several tries to get a correct signature done and this was the third sky for the piece – the others just did not seem right. The way I did a sunset in a previous pieces was just too overpowering and made everything look off balance. I was happy with the way the water turned out especially the wave crests.

6″x 4″:: original is tentatively sold – limited edition giclee prints will be available at $25  + $5 shipping (in US, INTL buyers email for shipping quote) (unframed)

Email for availability and payment directions or for more information.

One a (week)day: Day 116 – Yo-Yo

080707-yoyo.jpg
Piece number 116 (08/07/07). I finished my piece early yesterday and could not think of a piece to do. I needed something in place, b/c I needed to start this one in the afternoon – I was babysitting in the evening. So my husband suggested yo-yo and I went with it.

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)

–UPDATE 120209–
Using this for this week’s Illustration Friday theme of “Entangled”. I could never keep a yo-yo in working condition when I was younger.  So many yo-yo’s met an unfortunate death because of me.

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.
