Take a Dive Into The Ocean...

Here's a flower with a hint of ocean sensibility. Its transparent qualities float in a sea of blue and the ocean. Now available on my Etsy site and comes in a 16x16 square on 18x18 paper. If you want a little larger...or maybe a little smaller just let me know. Now where did I leave my flip flops?

Hmmm..makes me want to go wine tasting...

Here's a Tuscan landscape that I created by scanning several textured landscapes; then opened them in Photoshop and dropped them into a large background and moving each piece around till I liked the composition. There are six pieces joined together and they all have that spicy earthy feel but it's a good balance of cool and warm tones. This print is being offered in a 27x12 panel size on archival matte paper, which is great for your living room or maybe an office or lobby.

Visit my Etsy site for purchasing. Thanks!

Gerbera's....I love gerberas

I love them. They just make me happy when I look at them. So I sat down at the old Photoshop wonder and created four new pieces...and here is one. It's a Gerbera - plain and simple. The colors are fresh, citrusy and soft. Plant your gerbera poster in your house - it's only $48, printed on archival mat paper and is a 16x20 - what a nice standard size! Get it here on Etsy.

Thanks and enjoy your week.

The sun is out!

It's such a great day that my art is inspired by the blue sky and the fresh air. It's been several days since I created anything so I knew today was the day. Here's a floral creation that is digitally inspired but as fresh as real flowers. I'm offering it on Etsy for $40 for a 16x20 print. I love orange! So here you go and have a fabulous day.

A Touch of Earth

This is my latest piece on Etsy. It's called The Color of The Earth because I used soft spice and earth tones for the colors. I took left over matboard from my husbands frame shop. (ok - I get great deals on frames!) then I painted 8x8 squares in different colors including, blue, yellow, orange and sepia. I used two values for each piece to give it depth. Then I scanned each one it at double the size. I used to scan them in and make the dpi really 600. But it sounded like the scanner was going to quit on me.Then I found out you can scan it for the size you want it to be instead which works great. Then I opened each one in Photoshop, chopped up the images and dropped them onto a 12x24 space and moved the pieces around till I found a composition I liked. The circles were created by making the scanned image a pattern. The image is so large that I can easily create squares from it as well.
