The Cubic Pear

The Cubic Pear

I have always been fascinated with the stark contrast of a harlequin pattern, place against bright peices of fruit. Not only is the pear a colorful, vibrant piece of fruit, it is also one of my favorites! I like the fresh feel of the simple shapes impacted by the cubic light beams. This is done with color pencil and markers, layer upon layer, fully saturating the surface of MDF (medium density fiberboard) panel. This is a square piece designed to be hung at a 45 degree angle.

Red Shoes in the Rain

This is my latest in the Red Shoe collection. I can't help it I feel that Red shoes are the composite symbol of all things feminine and womanhood. There is a certain allure and power housed in the red shoe attire. For me long gone are the days of wearing spike heels, but I look at them and still can hear the tapping, clacking sound of power entering the room!

The Mocha Mouse

Here is my entry for June's Nibblefest.

The Mocha Mouse

best days begin with mocha I have always felt
at my favorite java spout
when the creamy topping begins to melt
a wild eyed tasty mouse jumps out!
tomorrow I'll drink faster!!!!
by Alma Lee

This is the largest piece I have ever listed in the Nibblefest. 11x14" Here's hoping!

The Pleeeeeeese Puppy

I am obsessed with the look of a pleading dog. Probably because I fall victim to it 99% of the time. Every dog owner knows the look. When they want a treat, a ride, some 1 on 1 play time. Those among us who can resist, are a far better women than me.

This is the lateest in my k9.5 series, done with color pencils, and paint markers on the MDF board. Color is laid down layer upon layer, until a full saturation of color is achieved.
