Here are two new little pieces (5x5 inches) that I made a couple of days ago... they've been shipped off to a show in Florida. It's hard to tell by the photographs, but there's an interesting difference in sheen-- the color parts are covered in a very thick, glossy gel, and the white space is flat white. I think I'll be making a lot more of these, they are so much fun.
Hope you are having a lovely week. My littlest one has his first day of preschool today! Yeeha! Four hours of blissful silence!!!!!!
A lot of you out there might know what I made this for: Lilla Roger's 2014 GTS. I know that my interpretation of "little terrariums" is a bit left-of-center using a vintage coffee decanter, but I think this print would be so cute in a happy kitchen!
I entered last year, too, and had just as much fun this year. Even though my piece wasn't chosen, I love prompts and contests that move me to make work I never would have thought to make on my own. You can see the artwork of all 999 entrants here, and the 50 semi-finalist here. Congrats to everyone who entered, there was so much gorgeous work!
A shout out to Ez from Creature Comforts for making the beautiful peony brushes I used in this piece (the pink and yellow drawings). I've been having fun starting collages with scissors and glue and then finishing them up in Photoshop, though I must say these works take much longer because of the endless possibilities!
If you haven't checked out Great.ly yet, do! It's a great new site where tastemakers set up shop with carefully curated goods; I'm already drooling over everything. The website just went live and is working out some minor kinks, but head on over!
This was one of those pieces that starts with doodling at the kitchen table while you're trying to get your third grader to do her math homework, but ends up being distracting: "Can I color one in? They look like oranges, not tangerines. How many are you going to draw? Can you make a unicorn now?"
This piece started out in my "sketchbook" (Country Living Magazine) but I liked it so much I pulled it out.
