Christmas blog giveaways... just leave a comment for a chance

to win one of these canvases, they are small wrapped and ready to hang. I will choose a winner for one each of these pieces two weeks before Christmas. To win you simply need to leave a comment about the art or the blog in general and an email address where I can reach you should you win. Good luck!  This piece with the hot dogs was just fun and I found the hot dogs in some magazine and couldn't resist doing the VanGogh like background and making the hot dogs sing. I hope you all remember the song.
8x10" 's Titled "Three Dog Night, Singing Joy to the World"
 These are both original canvases one was a round robin so other people signed to back, I never thought it looked finished so I worked it some more and finished that piece below. It is about how we took the land away from the Native Americans and now how we need to think about who will own it next. Life and democracy is all about change and it's not easy to adjust but this is the way of the world. This piece is mixed media with tissue and collage bits some from ART CHIX, and some Victorian scrap and metal charms, I painted the face of the Indian and other parts. Some parts peeking through are from people who have signed on the back of the canvas! It is all sealed with gel medium and Dorlands wax.
8x12" 's Titled" In the Future"
Be sure to leave your email!   Hugs, and Happy Holidays, Sanna

Currently working on studying some of the masters, and copying them in small pieces 2.5x3.5" 's!

I will be doing quite a number of pictures of Jesus, here are my first five. They are copies of the master's that I did myself.  All except one it's a copy of one of mine. Guess which one is mine? Well they are all mine here but one is my original idea the others I used Masters ideas to paint copies of, so learning more about technique and great sentiment!




I am finsihed with my tooth fairy! Well it's really a tooth fairy for Helen!



Here you can see her molar tooth crown with the words and sparkles I made on it, this piece is so neat with hidden words everywhere, embedded in all the different layers! 

I fixed her nose smoothed it with some amazing wood icing which I love to use! Her hair is made with texture from wood icing too!

Here you can see a little tooth fairy poem, there are words inside and outside of her body to integrate my work and this is something I learned from Rachelle Panagary! Her wand  stick is made with tissue paper the ultimate in smooch and goosh technique I learned from Terrie Lightfoot years ago!

Her shoes are red just for contrast and fun! Most of this piece is in purples and some pinks because Helen's favorite color is purple!

Look at all the magic! See the purple, see the white teeth she has absconded with in her tooth fairy tooth bag!

You can see right up her nose just like when you sit in the dentist's chair and you can see right up the dental hygienist's and dentists noses! hehehe

I always completely work the sides of my wrapped canvasses so that they are completely ready to hang! Sealed with Golden matte medium and also with dorlands wax.


 Notice here the words inside the Industrial Chic crystal, they say "Helen the Healer" because it's for Helen, we all need to appreciate our hygienists!
this is how I connected the tassel to the wand but I also used gel medium and crystal effects so it's on there nice and solid!

The entire work, I will take a better picture outside tomorrow and post that as well!

Showing her knees and feet, and placement of mixed greens and other colors! Each corner has a picture of the teeth inside the mouth but it's very subtle.

The top of the fairy bag with magic!
