beaded NYC yellow taxi cab bead embroidery art car painting

Semi-beaded NYC taxi cab. Bead embroidery on felt. 13" x 4" (33cm x 10cm).

As I was beading the 2nd taxi cab for my Radio City Music Hall painting, I realized that today, my blog has turned 5 years old!  Those 5 years seem to have passed by in a New York Minute! (Check the archives to see for yourself..) Special thanks to anyone who has read my blog for that long! And, if you have just begun to follow my blog, it’s your lucky day! To celebrate this milestone, I will be giving away a free PDF copy of my Intro to Extreme Bead Embroidery tutorial. (This tutorial is currently available for sale in my Etsy shop.) Please leave a comment on this blog post, and I will randomly choose one lucky winner on Sunday, April 24, 2011. Please include your email address, so that I can contact you! Again, thank you so much for your interest in my beadwork. Here’s to another 5 years.. Back to beading! :O

  1. Howdy, I am always in “awe” when I see your bead work. You manage to detail everything to perfection…. I am so in “luv” with the Westie and the New York City “scene” of Radio City is awesome in every detail. I love NY,NY… the bead work gives me a lot of enjoyment . Your talent in beading is amazing

    Loving your piece on Radio City Hall and all the others you have completed.

  7. Congrats on 5 years…as a newbie to bead embroidery and your blog I am azamzed at what you do! I have also been on the fence about getting the tutorial…would love to win a copy..I do not think that I could make animals as wonderful as you, but would love to try!

  8. OMG, that thing is going to be huge! It never really sank in until this picture with the measuring tape. I haven’t been here for 5 years, but I’m enjoying sharing this side of the world with ya.

  9. Congrats on your blog anniversary. 5 years is a long time in blogland. I love the way your taxi looks like it is racing down the street.

  10. Hi Diana, I haven’t followed you for five years but just the past few months after I found you when I started blogging. I’ve enjoyed seeing your works, I am always amazed at your attention to details…and your patience!

    Thanks for the chance to win the PDF, I think it would be fun to get into some beading embroidery!

  11. Yay, Diana, I’d love to win! Been mulling over ordering your tutorial to light a fire under myself and try out extreme bead embroidery a la The Lone Beader. Your teaching tool cat looks so much like my Maggie! Maggie has only 3 leg, so a pose like this is perfect for disguising that little imperfection!
