This is a watercolor mixed media 16X20 on Illustration board.  These boots have been around and yet they still have lots of life left.  Maybe with a little polish they will be ready for  Saturday night at their owners favorite place to dance.

15X22 Watercolor on Arches paper. This ole crow may bite off more than he has bargained for, or maybe he is just trying to spice things up!  We all need a little spice in our life to keep us lively. Hope your day is full of life's energy!

When The Trumpet Sounds

When The Trumpet Sounds,watercolor by Leada Wood (c) 2010 All Right Reserved

Yes I am still painting angels! One to go but I must take them to the museum tomorrow. It has been a fun process and I can't wait to see all our heavenly paintings hanging together! The Caboose Watercolor Society show, Angels We Have Heard On High, will open at the Heritage Museum in Big Spring Texas on December 4th and will run through January 11th. This is a transparent watercolor on Arches 15x22, with gold leaf added for her glory. Yes I drew everyone of the Fleu-De-Les in the background, they don't show too well in this photo as it is low resolution. I want to do this angel again with a stain glass effect in the background. Seems like I am never ready to give up working on our themed shows, the ideas just keep coming and I keep asking my self What If?

Artin' Around 2

Artin Around 2 Mixed Media by Leada Wood (c) 2010 All Rights Reserved
This is a mixed media collage made with hand painted and hand decorated papers. I love to get in my zone and start tearing and attaching my papers! I layer piece after piece until I get the effect I like and then I start using my handmade stamps and painting until I think the work is finished. These works come from within with no outside attempt at reality...purely imagination and creativity.

Circle Of Life

Circle Of Life, Mixed Media by Leada Wood (c)2010 All Rights Reserved
I am passionately painting angels preparing for the Caboose Watercolor Sociey's upcoming angel exhibit at the Heritage Museum in Big Spring, Texas, if you are in the area drop by and see our heavenly creations. The Circle of Life is a 20x20 mixed media painted on Crescent Illustration Board. I used gel medium to give texture and to stamp my Fleur-De-Lis in the circle. The angel is painted with transparent watercolor.The Fleur-De-Lis is a stylized Christian symbol representing the lilly which represents purity and in turn the Virgin Mary.The Fleur-De-Lis is composed of three petals and three sepals which symbolizes the Trinity.
