Paint Party Friday - Sugar Skull Girl








I decide to look to see who was trending on Yahoo.  The day I started it the top person was Adele.

I took Adele's picture and transformed her into Day Of The Dead Girl.  Do you see a resemblance?

Paint Party Friday - 2 ATC from Spring




I found these two ATC's that I did around Easter they are probably the first ones I ever did.  I was playing around to see how acrylic paints looked on the paper.  Since it watercolor paper.  They look better I think here than in person because I see them as kinda sloppy.



1. This one is Easter.  I combined Jesus's cross with a bunny rabbit.





2. This is A Chick and Mom. Of course the two are awaiting a another chick in the cracked egg there.

Paint Party Friday 3 Painting - The Fairy Trap WIP






I call this The Fairy Trap.  It is oil on canvas and a work in progress.  I have clean it up a bit.  Can you see the fairies.  One is being digested.  Yeah I have to work on that.

I did this for a contest on EBSQ.  The Theme is Carnivorous Plants.  
I looked up pictures and saw one Venus fly trap with a fly or beetle and you could see the silhouette of the bug in the trap.  I thought what if fairies get caught by venus fly traps too.

Happy Friday!

Paint Party Friday 2





Hello Paint Party People.  This my second time particapating.  I am bad at taking pictures although I keep trying  but my hands keep shaking.  

This painting is part of me or how I saw myself in a dream.  A girl with fiery red hair and gold jewelry(The Whore)  She is hanging upside down with the one leg bent (The Fool) Her heart is a oil lamp that feels empty but is not. (The Bride)




Most of the ideas come from the bible and the fool is from tarot cards.   In some why all those people felt like me when I started this.

Obama Caricature on Zazzle


I drew this caricature of Obama in his birthplace  Hawaii doing the Hula while a street in the back says Yes We Can.  I did this while I have just been slacking in putting it up.
Tell me what you think....

I put the image on cards, post cards and a photo sculpture.

Sunday Sushi - Organizing Art





So I have a problem with good or safe places to keep my artwork.  
Yeah I have art portfolios filled with art work and then I have a problem finding space for them as well...ugh.    I like make things because it is great art therapy but what do you do when you run out of space or feel so crowded that you can’t create more.  That is why I started doing craft fairs and joined etsy.

Does anyone else have this problem as an artist?  What do you do to create space? Do you start giving it away?

Norse Goddess Sif



Last weekend it there was day that was celebrate Goddess of Fertility Day.  My favorite Goddess of Fertility is Norse Goddess Sif.  She was wife to Thor.   
I first painted her on the ACEO/ATC card(below) and it did not come out as I hoped. I am still thinking about selling it at Etsy but i don’t know.

Today I search the web and found a site that tells you that every day has a holiday.  Of course yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day but did you know today has two things to celebrate it is the Goddess of Fertility Day and Sacrifice Day.  Now there are many different goddesses of fertility I picked the Norse goddess and wife of Thor, Sif.(picture above)  I actually made some painting of her and for Sacrifice Day but they are still wet.  So pictures will have to wait.   I do have other items I crafted and put on etsy.

Listening For The Boss


I call this painting Listening for the boss.  I know it is a little late for holiday paintings but i just haven't felt like taking the picture.

I painted this with craft arcylics. I didn't really want the blue in the snow but dripped some in there by accident, but as Bob Ross says there are no accidents.;-)

Art With Words - The Fool, The Whore, The Bride



She hangs from her own troubles knotted in a rope around her ankle.
Flashes her gold baubles and body like The Whore she is she.
But she is also The Fool destined to fool herself into thinking she will be The Bride.
So she hangs over her one stop drop into the abyss of fiery lava.
She dancing caring oh so much but can not stop destiny for only a fool believes they can
