The Cameronas

I was recently asked to make a piece for the Cameronas who are expecting a baby very soon. I thought a triptych with 10x10 inch panels would be fun because it could be more like a mural or the canvases could be separated and hung up in different places around the baby's room. The ground lines match up and the tree branches extend from one canvas into the next. It was a lot of fun creating these. I tried to incorporate pink as much as possible which means I ate a lot of cereal with strawberries in complaints here mmmm :)

Wall Decals

I've been experimenting with some wall decals but different. These have a bit of bas relief, just like my paintings. Typically, wall decals are flat on the wall and vinyl. However, I wanted to stick to the theme of stacking and using recycled cereal boxes to make them. I applied them on the wall above a vase in my house and liked the look. I'll be making more to sell as magnets and these decals will be in packages of 3 or 4 for sale as well. Yay decals!

Seahorse Numero Uno

A friend of mine commissioned a piece to be displayed in her new office. Her only request was that there be a seahorse in the painting. It's funny, we both thought seahorses were imaginary animals like a unicorn but found out they were real once we saw them at a zoo! They are weird but very cool little creatures and apparently tasty. Every time I see a travel show about a country in Asia, these are in the street vendors line up of interesting things to eat on a stick! I'll pass. Anywho, this is my first attempt at a seahorse and I'm pleased with how it came out. I'll be making more of them for sure. Listening to the advice of another friend, I will also be making more sea/ocean life creatures with my cereal boxes. This painting is a 12x12. I really liked working with this size.
