Spelling - how retro

I came up with this idea for a short story based on a conversation I had with a friend about how young students are using electronic devices for learning more and more and these devices tend to fill in the words - thus eliminating the need to learn proper spelling (spell check anyone?) and phonics. Then we thought maybe it was more important to have good content and worry about spelling later. Odd thought but that's where this conversation was going. 

So I came up with this story about a group of spellers who held onto this craft - so to speak - and respected it and kept it vital and relevant. It's very futuristic but with that steam punk way about it. I actually had to look up typewriter parts to finish a few paragraphs.

The story goes from one image to the second.

A wall of Pop

I took a different direction here and created a set of bold posters. These are for big spaces...maybe loft spaces or lobbies...something that screams out  a need for color. These three can be ordered as posters - you can order direct from me or you can buy them on Imagekind or Artist Rising. They are shown here on a wall because it just looks better to see a piece of art in a space. They are sized at 300 dpi at 18x24 but can easily go at least 25% larger. 

Thanks for visiting. And have an awesome New Year.

Snarky and proud...

Here are a few new ones I added to Daisy Downloads. I like snarky humor - I'm not going to deny it...it's just who I am...and I'm completely ok with cussing as well. I also find that I have many friends who enjoy snark as well. So I figured I would include some new pieces for you to download. Just $5.00 each. And - I'm not posting it on my site - but if you order two I will give you one extra download free. Just give me the link I will email you the image. 

Have a great day and an awesome holiday.

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
