Out there in big sky country...

Here are three new ones. I like the images of quiet places with nothing around. The solitary buildings are humble yet carry so much dignity. Bright blue skies and golden earth add mood and beauty. I'm not sure if they are for sell. There are palm tree paintings on the other side...so it's really a two for one but not sure about parting with the palms. You know how I feel about palms...

These paintings are 8x10 on wood panel - in acrylic. 

Prints are available here and here

More typography!

I can't help myself...I just keep making typographic posters. I like minimalist designs and they all go together. Some are sweet, some are funny....a mix of lots of stuff. And I have dogs...dachshunds, pugs and Frenchies....
I'm learning a lot about design...looking at other artists works and figuring out what looks good and what doesn't. 

Here are a few new ones on my Daisy Download Etsy shop.

Big Sky...

I have had a lot of success with my big sky images on some of my print on demand sites so I figured it wouldn't hurt to paint a few more. And - as an artist - I'm practical and use my supplies sparingly. These two new pieces were painted on the backs of two other paintings so really - it's 4 paintings for 2. They were painted in acrylic on 8x10 wood panel. 

Here is Earth Meets Sky 1 and Earth Meets Sky 2

Walking Legs

Skinny legs walking. Skinny legs dancing. I rendered these in black ink on vellum and they are very small. I scanned them in at 600 dpi but still they broke up a lot so then I drew over the lines and filled them in to make them more solid. Finally I added the skirts made of flowers. many layers of flowers. It's where goth, romance and and urban inspiration all meet at an intersection. and then I made them available as iPhone cases, posters, plates, coaster and all sorts of fun stuff!

Things that are broken....

These two landscapes are broken...but in a good way because they came back together to resemble a jumble of textures and landscape colors and now cohabitate to create an entirely new space. Perhaps another dimension or another universe. Someplace no one has ever been. 

Created digitally and enlivened with my favorite hues like teal, citron, aqua & tangerine. Oh...butter yellow of course. 

Available here on Imagekind, Artists Rising and Red Bubble.

Thinking About Pumpkin Pie

I wrote a few more short stories. Some are motivated by life events and then I change a little, exaggerate a little, embellish a little and create a story. Other times I think of the title and create a story around it.

Here are Pumpkin Pie and Drowning in Mediocrity.  Stories from life....
