Raining colors...

I love simple shapes that are made interesting and curious by subtle textural changes. So here we have simple stacked colors...one in blues and oranges and one in yellows and oranges and pinks with a hint of blue. I added drips and splatters to the edges to make the stripes come alive. 
Set up as prints on Red Bubble and Artist Rising

Urban Messages

I recently spent some time in Ireland and I couldn't resist the murals that dot the Dublin city walls. The colors are so vibrant and the images so full of energy. Dublin is an artistically minded city with great appreciation for personal expression, artistic freedom and bold and carefree use of color. 
I took many shots and settled on these four as my favorites. I used an iPhone Camera+ filter to enhance color...added a black border and cropped to square images. 
I set these up as prints on Etsy. Take a look here.

Oh so pretty...

The idea for these popped into my head about 11 pm the other night and I wanted to get up from bed and just start drawing but then I realized I wanted to sleep more than I wanted to draw so first thing the next morning I made them. Very simple, bright, whimsical pop designs. Florals yes - but so simplified in style they are more pop than anything. 
Available as fine art prints here on Imagekind and Artist Rising.   Remember to keep in mind that if there is any size that you want that you can't find here just let me know because I can have custom printing done for you.

Some Irish joy

I have no new paintings but I do have many new photos. We returned from a week in Ireland an its magical. what else can I say. The land is beautiful - the people are warm - the history is vibrant. And...contrary to common thought - the food is fresh and delicious. 
I have so many favorite photos but for now here are my top images.

Cocktails

Not the cocktails with alcohol - sorry to disappoint - however we have a cocktail in another form. These two pieces are Mint Cocktail and Coral Cocktail. They are created digitally with so many layers - I think over 30 on each. Also - most of the layers have their opacity dropped off so that the pieces have a transparent feel and layers of white and then layers of the main colors over and over. 
Available as fine art prints here and here

Numbers 54 & 55

Summer puts me in sun mode which means I am thinking of beaches - which easily moves to thinking about water and the colors blue and green. So while I was working on some larger paintings in blues and greens I used the leftover paint for numbers 54 & 55. 
I'm thinking that when I am done with this project I am going to put my favorite images in a Shutterfly Book. What do you think?

things on water

I haven't created anything new in a few weeks. Well actually I was working on some small acrylic originals but nothing new for art prints...I simply wasn't inspired so I find it is best to step away and not expect to find inspiration when it's just not there.

It will come - it always does. 

Yesterday a simple idea popped into my head so I made these:
Falling On Water 1 & 2. 

These are not the end all be all...but perhaps just a beginning of a new series. 

Find them here as art  prints on Artist Rising, Society6 and Imagekind.
