New Art: Unburnt

I finished this piece about a month ago. As much as I love dragons, this piece was one of the hardest pieces to work on and it had nothing to do with technical difficulties with the art itself. What made this piece a challenge was the inspiration behind its creation. When people see my work,…

New Art: Unbroken

This piece is the third piece I’ve completed using a pallet knife and minimal paper quilling. I’m really enjoying the processe of painting with a pallet knife. It’s taken some adjustment in terms of skill and technique and I’m learning that I need to have a lot more patience with the process, but what is…

New Art: I Got My Eye On You

Prior to completing Wild Horses, at the beginning of the year I had a strong urge to start another piece. At the time, I currently had two pieces already in process, Wild Horses and a quilled wolf, and I hesitated to start yet another but the voice and vision in my head was too strong…

New Art: Wild Horses

What I was after was something a little whimsical and fun,…

At Long Last… An Update!

I am abysmally slow at updating my blog with the latest happenings at Sabrina Ehlert Art, and there really is so much going on! Last month, I set up for the first time at Denver Arts Fest. It was my first arts festival I attended as a vendor, and I wasn’t entirely sure what to…

Gearing up for Denver Arts Festival

If I’ve been a little quieter than usual it’s because I’ve been hunkered down creating work for the Denver Arts Festival which is coming up later this month on May 26th thru 27th. This will be my first major arts festival, and honestly I’m a little overwhelmed by the amount of work there is to…
