Iguana band more color for PPF!

Hi everyone! I didn't get much painting done in the past few weeks but I did get a little more color on the Iguana band...

And here's one I did playing in Photoshop Elements just for fun...


Still looking for a name for the band so if you have more ideas please toss the names in the tip jar...the boys will love it!
And here is this week's petroglyph shot from one of our hikes in the summer here in Utah.
Happy PFF everyone!!!

PPF and Petro Carved Rock

Hello PPFers! I think I'm finally done with "Cliff Guardian". I put some detail into the lizard's head and the dwellings. Maybe I will do more later but for now I'm going to say its done.

I started thinking it would be nice to make a larger painting for a tshirt on Zazzle since the first ones were all from ACEOs or straight from the Wacom pad. So I started this sketch of an iguana rock band!

Next week I will start painting it with watercolors...but I couldn't resist goofing around in Photoshop Elements before I put the real paint on. I photographed the sketch as I went along and here's what I did in Photoshop to the lead guitar player before I drew the rest of the band on the paper.

I finally found the bag with some of the carved rocks I did for the Etsy shop a couple years ago. I'm still unpacking from our two major moves,lol. Might still be a while till I get the shop back up but in the meantime I can show ya the rocks from here.
 Happy PPF. Thank you Eva and Kristin for hosting our party every Friday !!!! Hugs, Deb

Petroglyphs and PPF

Hello everyone! First of all for PPF this week here is the collared lizard watercolor in progress, " Cliff Guardian". I got a little carried away practicing making watermarks but that became half the fun,lol.




Also I want to share another graphic I did on the Wacom pad for a new Tshirt design (same theme rockin lizards of course!). The new tshirt is available at http://www.zazzle.com/geckoguru?rf=238157499475324454 The tshirt says on it "Reptiles Rock" but this is just a close up of the graphic.


And now for the petroglyphs...we saw these in Snow Canyon State Park on New Years Day. Happy New Year and Happy PPF and Happy Exploring everyone!!! Hugs, Deb

PPF and Bloomington Petroglyphs

Hello!!!! Wow it's been ages since I've done PPF. I missed you all!!!! We are finally moved (agian)!!! First I want to show you the watercolor I've been working on for a long time now. I'll show you little by little so you can see the progress. As you can see, it's another lizard, this time a colorful Collared Lizard looking down at a cliff dwelling ruin!

Since we moved I've also recently opened up a Zazzle shop so I can play around with the Wacom Bamboo pad that Jeff bought me a few years ago. It's really fun! Here is a design I did of a Petroglyph Rock Band!

Zazzle Store Open Come On In !!!

Hello Everyone !!!! We finally made it to the beautiful Red Rocks of Southern Utah!! And I have to say we are in paradise, I mean hiking, climbing, rock hounding, petroglyph exploring PARADISE!!!! It took us forever to get here but we made it to our new (and hopefully permanent now) home! I thought I'd take advantage of this short time I have (before I find a job,lol) at home to get back to blogland. Ive always wanted to open up a Zazzle store and try designing some things for fun! One of these days I will get the Etsy store back up and running too but for now check out this link to GeckoGuru on Zazzle! I will try to post some pics of our hikes and all the TONS of petroglyphs we've found here practically in our back yard!!!!! (PS please note new email address above.) Love,Deb

PPF, We're Moved, and Happy Birthday Stacy!

Hello, I'm back FINALLY!!!!! We are all moved into our new digs. Even though foreclosure is a drag, I have to say we lucked out and found us a nice duplex to rent and the best part is not only do I get to keep my job, but I am now a wonderful 8 minute drive from work which is sheer heaven to me. Sooooooo to celebrate coming back to blogger land and PPF and our new home, I decided to paint an aceo for my dear friend Stacy from Magic Love Crow who has a birthday this month! Happy Birthday Stacy! This little guy will be soaring your way this week! And Happy PPF everyone!!!!!! I missed you all!
