What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Assorted Art


Whooosh!  The week just flew by and it's party time again!  To me, the best kind of party where you don't have to figure out what to wear.  All you have to do is take a picture (or two, or more) of your desk and join in the fun of peeking at desks from around the world joining What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!

I have a new scanner (actually bought for my daughter's Fine Art's thesis project but being sequestered for my use until she starts using it)!  I had to do some rearranging to find a place for it in my shelves.


I joined a Merry Christmas ATC Swap over at ArtJoyStuff and I made a Madonna and Child ATC with the verse from Isaiah 9:6 "For unto us a child is born."


Here are some handpainted pieces of coconut shells for a nativity I'm planning to make.  No, I didn't paint them myself.  I just designed them.


Here is a ballpen sketch I made.  I decided that I would bring a little pad and a pen with me (if my bag is big enough) and do some sketching whenever there is some waiting time.


And here are my two paintings that I will be offering in a giveaway as soon as I write the giveaway post.  I will be offering a choice of either one.   Note to self: Write giveaway post!


Thank you so much to all my visitors and all the wonderful comments!  I really, really appreciate all of you.

Hi, I'm just doing a quick whizz round a few desks while I eat my breaky and before my little grandees arrive [I've got 4 of them coming this morning now :-) ].
Your life sounds as busy as mine at the mo. Your artwork is so beautiful. :-)
Hugs,

Beautiful ATC, I love those colors. Enjoy the use of the scanner printer :D. (I'm shopping for a new one since our present one has decided not to print any more. And according to the forums, it seems to be a very common problem with the Kodaks.) Happy Wednesday :D

I love that the scanner has been sequestered..and it has it's own place...that makes it look frigthfully permanent! I think if I saw the nativity on sale I would know who the artwork was by.....

Love the nativity pieces (well designed) and a gifted painter somewhere around to me thinks!

I love looking at your desk, and that sketch is beautiful and I am sure you will miss the scanner once your daughter takes it back... I would be lost without mine xx

Love the details and strong linear quality of your Madonna and Child ATC--a very gentle and thoughtful piece.

Elizabeth said...

Nice new scanner - I have had an Epsom for about three years now and it's still going strong, and that's with almost daily use. Enjoyed all your photos of your craft space this week. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #81

Two gorgeous paintings that will be on offer (one of them) but I would be happy to settle for the ballpen picture - what a beautiful face. But then you always do beautiful faces. Loving those coconut shell ones too. What talent you have - a lovely gift from God.
Take care, Hugs, Neet #12 x
