Two little miniatures - dollhouse scale.

I finished two little miniature paintings yesterday, inspired by the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.
One is of a little girl "Runaway" running away from her parents who are obviously occupied talking. Watercolor with a little bit of ink.
It's listed on eBay at:

The other is "The Hot Seat" - a garden bench in the tropical garden hothouse in the ABGs.
It's all in watercolor. The image size on both is 1.5" - but I've left a white border around the outside that can help with framing.

Low starting prices.


ACEO (SFA) newest work - Valentine Hamster

I did this ACEO (2.5x3.5") yesterday. Today I listed it on eBay.

I also have some valentine products on zazzle featuring it (mousemat, mug, cards, etc) -* - these are a LOT of fun - so check them out!

3 little ducklings - SFA 10.25 x 7"

3 of the cutest little baby ducklings on 100+ year old ledger paper with copperplate handwriting on it - my original art. I'm loving doing these. :)
They were in a country store nearby (Rainey's in Sam's Valley). The black background is just for display purposes.

Prints and products available soon on:*


Monday, December 14, 2009

Just listed on etsy (handmade online selling site).

A very unique, one-of-a-kind artwork. A great conversation piece.

A book out of a handwritten ledger book - this page is dated 1905 and has accounting details on it in copperplate handwritten script. Torn edge where I tore it out of the ledger. And the bottom is cut fairly straight across, making size approx 10.25 x 8" (SFA). I've printed a scroll of flowers (the ONLY thing printed) in pink.

Then I've sketched (HAND-DRAWN) a cute black and white rabbit on it, in ink pen.

The old book page is heavier than typing paper, and is 'as is' - in line with being over 100 years old - some of its condition is slight discoloration.

Art Prints / Posters of this are available on Zazzle @* - there may also be other gift items, cards, etc with this image on them also.

Poster(s) of SFA (ACEOs).

Today's special on Zazzle is for 60% off art prints and posters.

To celebrate I created a triptych (set 3) posters of my first series of alphabet ACEOs / ATCs - all made using a book from the 1800s. This special is almost like buying one, and getting the other 2 free.

Would look really great framed and hanging as a set.*

Original Abstract Painting

Selection, brainstorming, searching for subject matter, composition, color and then finally a focus. I go through a whole series of mental exercises before painting.

The only analogy that comes to mind is a baseball pitcher on the mound, winding up then sending a fast ball through the air and hitting the catcher’s mitt. Then bingo I finally know what to paint! (It’s the baseball playoff’s, what can I say.) You don’t normally think of baseball when looking at abstract or impressionist painting but it works for me.

Imagination whether it’s coming from third base sliding into home or focusing on a red abstract tree it feels similar to me. It’s all part of the creative process. So never say “I’m not creative” just look around you and find something that will take you to that playful place....

Painting sold for Charity

I donated this painting for a Charity Auction for Great Ormond Street Childrens Hospital, and through generous bidders £820 was raised to whom thanks are due. It is nice to be able to use ones art to benefit others. More of my work can be seen on my Website

One of the reasons why I paint

The following post was initiated after another artist questioned her ability. It reminded me of how I started painting.... My visual story or perhaps interest in art started when I was a victim advocate. I worked with abused children and adults. I enjoyed their art. They used their work as a type of catharsis. Now I don’t know if their work would be lauded by an art critic or not but it had value.
My own personal work is different and usually captures nature or something close to home but I always remember and applaud those abuse survivors for bringing me closer to art.
This is my latest work.

"Jessica's Shearwater" by Kir Talmage

One of the things that impresses me about Jessica Douglas's work is her use of references in wings, and her ability to work large and fine enough to get just about every darn feather. Not to mention what David Sibley can do (have you seen his bird guides??!!)

I was noodling about on a 4"x6" piece of paper meant actually for printing cards on inkjet printers. As such, it moderately sucks for watercolors, but once I laid in a background (while vaguely thinking I might work at some of Linda Kemp's techniques), I switched to mixing colored pencils and gouache and thicker watercolors, and kept thinking of Ursula Vernon's advice that people will "believe" any lighting and skin tones if you get the shadows right.

Well, I'm not in their class, on any of those counts. I'm not even sure there are enough shadows (there often aren't, in my stuff). And I know I'm working too small and too impatiently to even get halfway to some of their techniques, let alone toward their deeply practiced skills and cool creativity.

On the other hand, they're all teaching me stuff, I keep going when I can find some damn time, and I'm grateful, and pleased with this as a step towards their levels (say, as of a couple years ago; I may never catch up and that's OK too).

It was a sooty shearwater, by the way.

On gear: Shirts and gifts through cafepress; different mugs and totes and doodads at zazzle; and various print sizes at deviantArt.

Combination Watercolor, Ink, and Acrylic Painting

My neighbor is on vacation and I’m watching her garden. This week I took the opportunity to paint some of her flowers. This is my abstract take on her hydrangea.

This small format artwork (4.5" X 6.5") is a combination watercolor, ink, and acrylic painting. The challenge for me today was to stay loose while painting. The 140 lb. watercolor block gave me that opportunity. The artwork did not have a chance to buckle under the pressure of the ink and acrylic. Enjoy!

Harder then stone

This is painted last summer but I haven't had time to post it anywhere. Since with this crisis I was need to get a regular job. So, now I am an art teacher ... It's a lovely job but I have very few time for my art.
It's an oil on linen work, 6x6 inches.
Tell me if you want it on eBay!

Well... this one was FUN!!!!
I've used the technique before, about 8 or 9 years ago, on a larger work. I've been going to do it on ACEOs but haven't seemed to get around to it. I was recently reminded of it in a current magazine, so decided to do one, and 'hit' on the idea of doing an octopus.

The auction is 3 days only.

MUST see to appreciate.

A wildlife painting

This acrylic painting, was created from a photograph I managed to grab as three mallards came in to land at the Titchfield Haven Nature Reserve, where I had spent a very cold day photographing the wildlife.
