Patterns

Going on a little tangent with stenciled patterns with oils, so messy, but painting is really a messy business.
I'm working on a series of 12x12's, it's my square foot of art series.

Been Busy

I'm blogging because that's what your supposed to do to get known as an artist. I haven't blogged for a while, I've been addicted to candy crush saga, I have to quit!! I have been painting though. Started a new series, paintings of some of my favorite album covers. Some of them from my childhood, I loved albums when I was a teeny bopper. Also, getting into patterns and stencils. I suggest using acrylics for using stencils, but I love the results from oils, it's so messy, love it though.


These are 12x12x1.25's oil on canvas, with the stenciled patterns. In my square foot of art series also music series.

From my album cover series, this one was a favorite as a teen, I listened to it a million times at least.
It's so great!! 24x24x.75, acrylic on canvas. Some of my album cover paintings are in acrylic some are oils

This one is another all time favorite, I was listening to her while I did this painting, she was such a major force, her voice had so much soul. I felt so bad that she died so young. My album paintings are 24x24x1.25 this one is oils.

The Boys are Back

My blue guys that is...

I've been creating large paintings, in pantone colors, fall colors that are supposedly popular and they're great but I had to return to my blues, for me blue means happy. I don't know why I just love painting these guys, they make me happy I adore mixing blues. And I've been adding some diamond dust in the white highlights so they sparkle and beckon you to enter the painting.

the cool tango

 i wanted to paint some cool icy tones in a painting, the ice blues & greys, I had my new scarf line in mind. A site called shopvida.com offers high quality scarves & tops with your artwork on them. The site looks good, I have to order a couple of things to see the quality before I spend too much time on it. I've been on so many different sites & only a couple actually make me money.

Latest works

This is the latest big oil painting that I offer not stretched, shipped in a tube. So I can keep the shipping cost down.  My cubist jazz musicians last encore. It is available on my site 
http://www.galerievie.com





After working large I like to go smaller as in these 4, 6x6 acrylics which will also be on my site soon on small abstract page.

been busy (a good thing)

After a too long dry spell, I had a nice flurry, need to figure out how to keep it going.
I've had pretty good sales with online galleries but it doesn't compare to someone buying directly from your website, they don't even contact you or ask anything they just put the money in your paypal acc. and you look at your phone & your like whaaaaat?
It would be great if that happened everyday, got to figure that one out.
My 'Jam Session' went to Louisiana this week

One Last Tango

Latest and last in my latino dancers series 'One Last Tango' 56x78 not stretched, I like to paint large but keep it rolled up, easier to store easier (and cheaper) to ship.
I think I might need to reshoot, it's hanging in a spot which is hard to get the lighting right, always something.
