Working on some new pendants. This is from a Russian space stamp I turned into a pendant. That image is fantastic and it is much better to have it out being seen in the world than living like a stamp in a book I never look in.
Sold this painting today. I love it and hate to see it go but hell how cool it flew off my page so to speak.
Then I bring you a crazy ass leprechaun zombie because who does not like leprechaun zombies.
This painting you see was inspired by a dream in which I saw the painting. recently I have noticed my shop is a little dead but what really just makes me happy anyway is that I love the stuff I am creating more so I know that will balance out. If you would like to see this painting in the shop here ya go. https://www.etsy.com/listing/124683291/dreaming-skull-bluebird-tree-painting
Spent most of my weekend working on writing. I keep it in this case and use it when I want to take it to a coffee shop or whatever to make it easy. Well as you can see my cat thinks it is a really great hiding place. No I did not put her in there.
This last thing is just one of several strange pendants I am making these days. So that is pretty much how I spent my weekend what about you?
So this morning started off with a little snow but lots of ice. I know some of you see ice as just a thing and go right on about your day. Well here in the Midwest that shit stops us in our tracks. When you live midway up a hill it makes getting in and out of your driveway a bitch as well.
Later today my little kitty you see got petted to the point she was drooling. I love her even though as you see she has scratched up the top of my cabinets. Still kitty drool got to love it. Spent my day creating and getting ready to do another round of it into the evening.
Then we have more snow shit. There should be a road under there but you know we are not to priority for a fucking plow. Any how enjoy your day I need adult beverage added hot chocolate.
So the other day I noticed my stats on this blog show a large amount of my views are coming from Russia. I can only assume this means you all are bored over there but none the less I am happy to have you come visit my page. It really is special to me how the Internet lets us connect to folks all over the world.
The photo above is one of my newest paintings. It is of a space ship I have a dream about. If you would like to see it in the shop here is the link. https://www.etsy.com/listing/124094580/watercolor-space-ship?
So I have a question today for everyone. What is your favorite kind of music and why. For me it is the old ballads from the 50s and 60s. I love the swoony quality and they just make me smile.
First with the popes. This is my little love note to the pope. I have no use for organized religion myself. I do believe in a God just not in any organized religion I am sharing that because it is part of what shapes my view. The painting has the pope hiding a child a alter boy under his hat. I suspect his large hats are used to smuggle in children they wish to defile. Then hiding a dirty priest under his dress.
These are the dopes. They are my two sweet kitties who also broke one of my favorite mugs today. Clearly they are happy with themselves.
This is my goal for today to finish up this set of Star Wars inspired mini people.
Well I hope your day is as full as mine.
The ornaments you see above are from my latest series. This time it was black star ornaments. I had these sad little ornaments that were supposed to look like cookies and they just needed a whole new kind of life so I made them little goth ornaments. It makes me happy and hey were else can you find a ornament with fangs. If you would like to see them they are in the shop. https://www.etsy.com/listing/123459686/black-star-ornament-pick-your-star?
Then you have this other picture. This is not for my shop this is just for me. Since I was a little kid I have been making up these crazy fashion images. My mother did it for fun and taught me so much like when I was 6 I sit around doing this listening to groups like The four tops and the Eldorados. That is my time to dream. Right now I am dreaming of our goal to move to Sweden. We would love to settle there and maybe stay. We looked over all of Europe and the climate and politics seem agreeable and it would give us the chance we always dreamed of to see Europe. It would be a great base from which we could travel and see all the wonderful places and art. For me I am one of those people who has to do something towards my dreams. I wanted to sell my art so I made a shop. That is just me so we are saving and learning Swedish at the moment. My small goal towards this for the day is to work on doing some sprucing up of the house to get it ready to be sold. Hope you are all following your dreams as well.
This has been a weird week for me a bit back I was featured all over town but then this week the main shop has slowed down greatly. If not for custom work I would of been dead in the way of business. I took this time to please myself a little. Hey no not talking about masturbation lets save that for the penis blog. I actually am talking about making this series of little potted monster plants you see above. I love them and slowly over the weekend hope to get them all listed. They were just about pleasing me I did not go for the easy famous monsters I just made exactly what my little heart desired. I doubt that will translate into them all selling but I bet one or two will speak to someone.
So now you are asking why does she have up a crummy little photo of her decaf that is right I only get decaf and maybe once every month or so. Well here is why I sometimes you just need to use the pretty stuff. I was tired of our old mismatched plates so I put the decent ones in a box for a local pet charity and the bad ones went in the trash. I then promptly pulled out the good china and replaced the whole damn lot. It makes me happy every time I see it. That is what I call pleasing myself.
This blog post is all about little things. First I added the picture of my sleeping kitty because she is a little thing. So when I say little things I mean art but also something else. This year I am really working on making my life reflect more of what I want it to. So in that I am trying to be good to myself by doing little things. It may sound a bit selfish but think we are all due a little selfish from time to time. Today I skipped breakfast because I got busy with a project so by 11 I was starving. Instead of doing what I would usually do which would be starve or make something sad like a can of soup on a hurry I treated myself. Made a piping hot cup of tea, couple of slices of Italian break with Gorgonzola on it and a couple of little chocolate covered graham crackers and two strawberries all sliced up. I put it on the fancy plates with a little tray and it beat the hell out of a can of soup. So today I did a little thing for myself. I hope you all do the same.
Devil Baby has already sold but I wanted to share it because I think Devil Baby is going to come visit in some of my other paintings. Devil baby fits so many things in my life. My view that this represents most of the people making laws in Arizona. Mardi Gras is another one. My own feeling of being Devil Baby so to speak. This week I just feel really lucky to have my work noticed for both the good and the bad but to know people are seeing it and taking away whatever they like.
This floating skeletal chick I created yesterday. I am not sure what is up with her just felt I needed to make it. I got up in the middle of the night with a urge to paint and this is one of the things I worked on. What gets you up in the middle of the night.
