I've started a new collection of paintings I call Color Studies. These are all painted with acrylics on Bristol paper (unframed), in sizes from 11"x14" up to 19"x24" and they are quick little studies to work on color combinations and design elements. Most of these are abstracts, but I also do some of my PoP of Love hearts as well, that have less detail than my other hearts. These color Studies really help to keep me inspired and allow me to create finished art every day, so far I am loving this new direction! And am going to try some of these designs on larger paintings soon, for now I'm just really enjoying the process of creating so much new art and hope you all like these new pieces as well.
I am also offering these original paintings at VERY affordable prices, so that everyone can enjoy some colorful, vibrant original art in their homes. You can see all the available pieces HERE, and be sure to check back on a regular basis as I try to add new ones every day as often as I possibly can.
I have also been adding them to my Society 6 and Pixels.com sites for prints and all kinds of fabulous print options, home decor and accessory products.
I will also be creating some of my popular style of abstract Landscapes and Circle of Life paintings as Color Studies as well and offered at the same price. I don't paint a lot of these anymore, but it's fun to revisit this style with new colors and add in some different ideas/designs elements as I move forward with the color studies.
I wanted to share this photo I received from one of my collectors who purchased my art on metal from my licensing partner All My Walls. What's really cool, and unique, about the way they do their metal prints is that they actually hand sand each piece, and that's what creates the amazing looking rays shooting out from the sun/moon orb in this print of "Aqua Burn"...isn't it stunning?!!
You can see all of these designs & many others they have available on metal art at www.allmywalls.com
I've decided to make a very major change in the way I offer my prints from this point forward. Any new paintings I create will ONLY have offerings of limited edition prints, I will no longer be creating any open edition prints unless it is for a specific manufacturer/publisher commissioning art for that purpose. I do leave the door open for other products to be made from some of the paintings, but only with carefully chosen manufacturers that I think will align with and bring value to my art brand.
I will no longer be offering open edition prints from new paintings on sites such as Pixels.com or art.com, etc., but they still have lot's of my older images to choose from, over 800 alone on Pixels.com! The new limited edition prints will also only be available on this website, direct from me, signed, numbered and dated.
I'm keeping the prices for the limited edition prints very reasonable so that collectors can still enjoy my art, but they will now have a more unique print that only a handful of others will ever have. You can see all of the current limited edition prints available here.
I will still be offering my weekly limited edition/limited time prints as well, and these are always in a lesser edition amount and lower price than the rest of the limited edition prints, so be sure to take advantage of such a great opportunity! I will be posting on this blog and through my newsletter when those prints become available, so be sure to sign up for the blog (subscribe at top right of this page) and newsletter to get notifications.
My newest painting "The Golden Forest"© is now available for one week only as limited edition prints. I will only be offering (10) 16"x20" prints EVER! Once they have sold out, or the week of time is over, there will never be any other prints made from this painting ever! Go Here to purchase your limited edition print.
"The Golden Forest" original is from my Circle of Life Collection and created on loose canvas with acrylics, including my unique technique of textured metallic gold paint as an overlay on the background. This overlay creates such a beautiful shimmer and shine when the light hits it just right, it really makes the painting have so much dimension and life. Visit shop to purchase original.
These prints will only be available through the evening of November 9th, or until sold out.
There are only 10 Limited Edition, Signed prints for this painting, also 16"x20". It is a first come, first serve basis, as well as a limited time frame. Once the week of purchase time is over any unsold prints will not be sold, and the edition numbers will be limited to the final amount of prints sold. So, if you purchase the first print and only 7 prints are sold you will receive 1 of 7, and so on; your edition number will be determined by the order in which prints are purchased and will be handwritten on the print itself. The prints will be shipped within approximately a weeks time of the end of the weekly listing, as I won't be ordering them until the week is up to know exactly how many to create. There will never be any other prints made from this painting, ever!
AND...THE WINNER IS......BECKY!!
