One Hundred Ninety-Nine!

So I am out of paper currently, well at least the type I prefer, so I decided to back track through sketches I has started and given up on and morph them into something new. This was the beginning of one of the tattoo ideas I has made for Liam. It never even came close to being done nevermind make the cut so I decided it was the perfect base image. The other bits were added with the intent of having even more added into the image. Enjoy and see you tomorrow!

One Hundred and Sixty-One!

Above are two more examples of cards I created for the Endless Summer Event, which I participated in this past weekend. Obviously I am somewhat behind in the postings department believe me I am fully aware and attempting to get my act together now. Anyway, once again I carved a stamp from a design I created and layered it with simple shapes to give it some contrast. I really love this particular stamp and almost wish it were like 10 times as large… IMAGINE! Anyway, below is a picture of my set up at the fair. Enjoy and see you next time!

One Hundred and Sixty!

Not exactly the usual, but it was what I was doing for a couple of days. What this small little abstract shapes really is, is a thank you card created from a stamp I designed and carved and layered with a second stamp in an alternate color. I do love doing this kind of thing, it gives me time to lets say “breath” when I start getting into some kind of rut… not that I really felt that way but I do like to switch things up and keep my mind moving. ANYWAY, I was creating cards because I participated in Endless Summer which was loads of fun and I had needed some new inventory in the cards department. Whalah! Enjoy.

One Hundred and Fifty-Nine!

I love these highlight bits… kind of remind me of octopus sucker things but I kind of prefer that they remind me of when fairies touch plants, like in Fantasia! Enjoy!

One Hundred and Forty-Two!

These are much smaller scale studies. It is a combination of trying to work with gouache and also still pushing the pod imagery to see where I might introduce it next. Enjoy!

One Hundred and Forty!

This image was more of an experimental piece. I would start a shape move to the next return and introduce a new element here and there. I would not consider this my favorite type of finished piece but I do like that it does not seem so static… It feels like a mash of bits from the ocean without a backdrop. Different types of seaweed or organic pieces tangled together. I think the word tangled means a lot to my work. I like weaving things together, almost in a way that would not really make sense but looks interesting. Something new to consider! Enjoy.

One Hundred and Thirty-Nine!

These images began the day of open studios but my rate of finishing pieces has decreased to like a snail’s pace… I’m sitting and pondering the next move quite a bit which is both good and bad. Anyway I began painting this pod shape which you will see in the next few images since I have become somewhat obsessed. The contrast in this image is to my liking I love the pops of color throughout the image.
