Colors of Winter III

Beautiful art work!

RENDERED IMPRESSIONS / Original Oil Paintings by Catherine J. Martzloff

Colors of Winter III“Colors of Winter III”

Although winter may be barren and dormant it’s not lacking in color to my eyes. 

I’ve been intrigued by a clearing I pass by rather frequently. It’s part of a land preserve.  Last week I ventured out and stopped at the location to capture 3 separate vantage points on canvas.   This is the third in the series.  Each day was different in weather, light and experience.  That’s one of the inspiring aspects of plein-air painting for me.

This painting was painted on a 11″ x 14″ canvas in oils.

Repurposed button jewelry by BluKatDesign on Etsy.  This is my first video; it was kind of scary because I don’t photograph very well but I think I video better than I look in still photos for some reason.  I wanted to show everyone my unique upcycled button jewelry and who makes it!  Below is my latest fun creation, a green button statement necklace made with stacked buttons, vintage beads and chain:

Mandala Art Jewelry – Colorful Necklaces and Earrings on Etsy

Mandala Art Jewelry – Colorful Necklaces and Earrings on Etsy

Mandala art jewelry by BluKatDesign on Etsy. Mandalas to me are like yummy eye candy, so colorful, I just want one in every color of the rainbow or Chakra! The colors can also be energizing, soothing and healing. I love making them into glass tile pendants; the glass domes I use make them really pop out in almost 3-D. I wear mine all of the time with a simple stainless steel necklace cord like Abby, The Vintage Inspired Passionista is above but pretty ribbon cords or ball chains are available too.  Casual and unisex, they look great with jeans and a T-shirt.  Great for New Agers, healers, Modern Bohemians, teens, artists or anyone who needs a pop of color! Three sizes are available:  1″, 1 1/4″ ( the most popular) and  the largest 1 1/2 ” is more like a statement pendant or medallion. Lightweight mandala earrings that are made out of wood discs and also magnet sets are available also in my handmade jewelry store.

Bead Dangle Earrings with Vintage Glitter Beads – Handmade Jewelry on Etsy

Bead Dangle Earrings with Vintage Glitter Beads – Handmade Jewelry on Etsy

Most of my handmade jewelry is very colorful but I do love to collect unique and rare vintage beads.  These simple but elegant and even super sparkly earrings can easily get overlooked in my colorful store. They have a modern and some say Asian feel to them. The unusual vintage taupe colored corrugated tube beads were a fabulous find!  They have cool gold flecks of glitter in them and look great with the black glass pearls and sparkly clear crystals. Since they are neutral in color they can go with anything! Long skinny dangle earrings look great on almost anyone but especially those of us with wide or round faces; they can help slim the face!  Be sure to check out my Etsy store for more  handmade earrings  and  other  modern, vintage and upcycled jewelry.  To get directly to these unique earrings click on the photos.
