My Artistic Busy-ness

I promised my next post would be about what's been keeping me busy outside of writing.
I promised pictures.
I also promised this would be sooner.

Well, I can't keep that last one without time-travel, but I can keep my promise on the other two.

For the past month or so I've been finishing up the third Toch Island book....
...which finally has a title



While it's off for its final edit and I'm waiting on the final cover design (something I promise I will reveal in full as soon as I can!), I've been focusing on my visual arts.

Wand-making:

Multiple methods displayed here, some made from sticks, some dowels, and lots of fun finishes.
My most recent and the first one I hand-carved (except for the ball on the end).


Pendant-making:





And my newest endeavor...

Mixed media:

This was a gift for the worship leader at my church.

This is my drawing worked into a mixed media piece.
I'm planning on making more, with different drawings, and selling them at art/craft shows.
Actually, I may add a bit to that last one. I'm really enjoying trying different kinds of art, doing something that's not drawing-focused (although I'm still sketching now and then), and making things out of the drawings I've already done.

Eventually I'm hoping to start an etsy store. Of course, that takes time, and I've got events coming up soon where I'm hoping to sell these in person, so we'll see when that actually happens.

There you have it. My artistic busy-ness.
