EBSQ Ripped Off Show

Due to some serious illness in the family, I didn't get my two entries finished on time for EBSQart's Ripped Off Show. I won't be able to enter them into the show but I will get them done. Here's what I've got so far for Mary Lu's rip. I was really intrigued by her references to pirates for the pirate ring she did for the Paper Show. My two boys are fascinated by all things pirate so after many years of reading piratey stories to them, I had to do this. I went to Mary Lu's site to view her many beautiful, beautiful designs in jewelry and decided to create a treasure chest filled with her pieces, with a treasure map lying in front of the chest. Here's some progress shots, you can click on any for larger views:

This is the drawing, surrounded by several printouts of Mary Lu's gorgeous designs. The drawing is laying on the full sheet of arches watercolour paper, 22" x 30".

A bit of a close-up of the chest. The blank spots inside the chest will be filled with coins. Old pirate coins. Arrrrrrrr, Matey!

The start of the painting.

I'll post more tomorrow but for toight, I'm bone tired!
