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've been wanting to get more serious about offering handpainted purses for a couple years now, and have painted a few for myself, and finally got around to creating several to offer for sale!
These first few are just random purses I've found at stores that I thought would make a great canvas for painting on. I am going to be offering more custom MADART purses that have been painted on. I am in the process of ordering sample purses that will be exclusive to MADART, with branding, packaging, etc. , this is going to be an actual fashion line of purses that I will be handpainting. I will also eventually be offering printed purses at lower prices that will have my original designs and only be available directly through this site, most of which will also be limited edition designs. Pricing is also subject to change once the new custom purses are introduced.
Lot's of different ideas swirling around in my head where to go with this! I've always loved fashion, as far back as I can remember, even wanted to be a model in my younger days (funny enough my daughter is now a model :). I think this will be the perfect marriage of my love of fashion and my passion for art. this will also give women the opportunity to have a truly custom purse to take with them everywhere they go, what better way to show your appreciation for art than to get to wear it!
I will also not be using any leather purses, these will all be PU "leather" type products (synthetic). I'm working on being more aware of not using animal products in my life, and these purses are a great way to stand up for animal rights.
Stay tuned for more painted purses coming soon!! You can see the current available purses here.
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
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!
I've been working on this book for over a year now and finally got it together and it's published, YaY! Sooooo happy to finally be able to share it with all of you :) You can purchase right now on Amazon.
I also felt so inspired when I saw it all put together that I created another website all about coloring, with new pages you can purchase and download immediately to print out and color at your leisure. I also have products you can color too! Like Phone cases, totes, and some pretty t-shirts, you can never have too much fun coloring!
