Day 32: play time!

Hanging at the gallery, decided to do a little storytelling.

Whoa boy. Stabby Rat has been drinking from a sake set, made a talisman from one of the jewelry cases and is recruiting an army. Things are really getting outta hand at the Hotpoint Emporium today.

Somebody needs to get in here and stop the coup. Sparrow is feeding me chocolate as a means to gain mind control over me. I’m powerless to stop them!

Day 29: tbd

5×7” pastel with ink

So I have been thinking/feeling about the way color plays a role in the energy of my works. I decided to take a ‘design’ I made the other day and put it into a completely different environment. The amber toned pastel texture with black ink is kind of my signature, so I figured- try it!

It’s very interesting to me that the feeling this evokes is absolutely and completely different from the one I made the other day with black and bright red ink on white paper. Of course there are a lot of other differences between the two, but anyway… great information gained and a nice finished work.

Secondary to all that is my new bottle of India ink which I am madly in love with. Just luscious as-is, a little goes a long way, and with the tiniest mist of acrylic gloss … OMG the tactile dimension and the shine. I just love it.

Alien Adoption, Volume II


“Sparrow”
status: AVAILABLE as of 1-28-18

Just released for adoption and waiting to meet you at the Hotpoint Emporium, Sparrow is a bit on the edgy side and looking for a home where flair and confidence is appreciated more than a charming personality. And please remember there are more siblings awaiting adoption, but the folks at Hotpoint have told us they can only care for one at a time. As with Josie, Sparrow needs a forever home before the others can be released!

Every alien adopted is a 6×6″ original mixed media artwork.

In 2018, a band of undocumented aliens was discovered hiding in the higher dimensions in the vicinity of Warren, RI.  Whether they came here intentionally or were stranded here is still unknown, but they sent a signal expressing a desire to reside in earth homes. I trust their intentions are pure so have accepted their mission. The Hotpoint Emporium in Bristol RI has agreed to assist in this effort, but the risks of harboring multidimensional beings is still unknown, so they are only able to care for one at a time.  

For security purposes, all intergalactic adoptions must take place face-to-face in Bristol RI.

Day 28: “no apologies”

no apologies
WIP

Part of the daily discipline I’ve been doing involves posting my day’s creative work without apology. I admit it’s one of the bigger challenges to post something when I don’t know where it’s going. But here you have it, today’s work is unfinished and so far feels completely foreign to me. This one is going to enjoy a nice, long press under a pile of books until I figure out what on earth it wants from me.

Day 22: more vision boarding

Digital imaging

Got lost in outer space while staring at images of nebulae. 💜💕 Whole honing in on concept art for my Planetary Hybrid series, I’m surprised to watch each one go in a completely different direction. It took me a while to figure out that the different works in this “series” will not necessarily all have the same kind of look and feel. Now that I’m getting more comfortable with that, I’ve got to decide which one to follow through into production first!

Day 21: “busy work”

busy work
3×3” preliminary sketches

There are so many things to like about having decided to make art my full time job. I worked in the actual public at the gallery today, sold a few of my magnets, got a stuttering compliment on my gorgeous eyes, was told my work belongs in a fine art gallery, and I filled my spare time doodling out sketches for my next batch of “minis.” Honestly, in heaven.
