Putting It Out There

My ideas could keep someone with more time working 24/7. I’m putting this in the universe, just in case I haven’t been clear. I want to create art as my full time job. I know it will be years before I get to that point, so Cosmos… do your thing and I’ll do mine!! Pinky Promise!!! 🌔✨♓️☯️🆘

And now… something to look at.

Inspired by Klimt

“Tree of Life” by Gustav Klimt.. do I really need to say more? A while back I honestly thought this tree was my unique creation, which proves, there are really no “original” ideas in art. No two artists will produce exact replicas, unless of course there is cheating involved. My brush strokes, preferred color palettes, and materials I use will make my Klimt inspired pieces look like me, and tell my story.

I want to thank Klimt for originating this style of tree, it is by far my favorite style of tree…and it brings a bit of spirituality and deeper meaning to any of my artwork.

Here’s a little clip of my 4 super mini 4inX4in Klimt inspired trees, just poured with resin and ready to spend the next 24 hours curing!

Thanks for your time!!

New Supplies = New Techniques to Try

I have been patiently waiting for all my new art goodies to arrive.. alas they did over the last few days.. which I had been stuck at work just dreaming of testing everything out. I know I said YouTube is my art school, only bad thing is I want to have all the cool stuff my fave YouTube artist use!! Sometimes I feel like it’s just a name dropping contest, but so far I haven’t been steered wrong. I think I have learned the most about watercolor and what makes a quality product.

Well without any further ado here some pieces I have completed with my new supplies 💕

Original 1 of 1 artwork on 5inX7 watercolor paper.  I use all artist grade materials. $40 for this original.

You Tube is my art school

I swear everything I learn is from watching you tubers for hours.  They tell me what  kinda supplies that will make me happy, and tips and tutorials.  I’m learning so much that I wonder if I should start a YouTube channel.  I’m sure there are people out there that I could teach all my secrets to.  And I know for a fact that I won’t get skipped because I’m too much in the camera, showing out… nope, not me. You will see my hand and the art I am working on, maybe a commentary voiced over.  Sounds fun!! Let’s Do IT!!💗🦋 I already know the most important line in any YouTube video… please hit like, any comments put them down below, and subscribe and share if you enjoyed this video.

Super Productive 

I’ve been really inspired and super productive 😊, which makes me happy 😃!  I’ve been practicing eyes, and found a use for that Bristol paper.  #goals 

Here are some pics of what I have been working on.  

My Crappy Art Day: Official 

What I keep hearing is you gatta make some crappy art to make some good art.  Today was officially crappy art day, I know it’s a learning process.. but dang,  art supplies aren’t cheap 😝.  

Lol, I seriously was so excited to start this, after 4 hours it finally met the trash can.  I did learn some things though.  1) I don’t know why I own Bristol paper… it is useless.  2) I really need to practice drawing eyes.  3) I don’t need to go full on, I can do a little sketch without bringing out ALL of my supplies.  4) I really hate working on anything bigger than a 12×12.  5) Bristol paper is the worst… did I say that already?

Ideas.. I’ve got some. 

They will, however have to wait until I bust out the next 3 days of 12 hour shifts doing the nursing gig.  

In order to bring my idea into fruition I need some things:  I am requiring a table saw, which I don’t own, a table saw operator, a date to accompany me to Home Depot, and some wood.  

I love how I can look back at where I started, consider all the types of media I have experimented with, along with all the successes and failures, but everything is adding up; I am still trying new things, but my new things echo my old things, which I love ❤️, because every last bit of it is me, my things, cohesive or not… I will continue to make what I want, what I feel on any given day.  Skulls, weird creatures, pretty flowers, cartoon dogs, pretty girls, ugly girls, doesn’t matter because they all come from me❣️ Imma do what I want!!

So enough of my “blog”, here are 3 little 6×9’s that I made for some special ladies.  I wanted to show them that I appreciate that they are in my life 💛, and yes..it was hard parting with my “babies”, but as an artist, what better gift can you give than an original piece created with that special someone in mind.  All my peeps know that I hardly ever part with an original, an issue I need to work on for sure.  I have actually talked people out of buying an original from me, so dumb… so dumb, just destined to be a starving artist 👨‍🎤.  I think I need a manager 🙄

Things are looking up

Well, been trying to get back at it.  I’ve had some small successes and some big disasters.  I feel like I’m learning again, which is kinda cool… I think tomorrow I will have something new ready to be shown.  It’s a lot different than what I’ve been doing, but it’s still me in there 💗 I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it!

Futures Unclear

The choking feeling
Pushing it down
It forces itself up
Smile to a frown
Tears welling in eyes
Automatic response
Emotionless cries
Not what she wants
The tears fall
Betrayed by gravity
Reconstruct the wall
Her alternate reality
She stays on the side
That keeps her numb
Artistic suicide
No inspiration will come
No colors, no shapes
It’s all disappeared
No longer her escape
Futures unclear
