Styling Fuck Off In Orange

Styling F-ck Off in Orange

 

Fuck Off in orange is the most popular piece in my Society6 shop. People have purchased wall tapestries, notebooks, and phone cases of this piece. Even though the painting is a little aggressive – it’s supposed to be – you can still style it. So, I thought I’d have a little fun and mix Fuck Off in orange with a few more sleek pieces.

What do you think? How would you style Fuck Off in orange?

What would you like to see me style next week? Tell me in the comments.

Happy Easter

IMG_0725I’m not religious. Spiritual, maybe, but not religious. Spring is nice, though. I really wanted to be outside today. So, I came outside with my travel watercolor set and did this little egg hunting zombie.

Do you do Easter? How did you spend your day?

Stepping Out

I did it. I stepped out of my comfort zone, just like I said I would. I used patterns and prints to add a bit of depth to my canvas. And there were flamingos and pineapples involved just like I said there would be…

RuPaul is definitely my favorite of the four. I can see how adding pattern easily creates more for the eye to take in. It wasn’t easy, but I did collage these prints in. Next time I’m going to try painting in some patterns instead. I did really enjoy this experiment, but I think I’m going to stick with simple for the most part.

Out Of Canvas

When I’m out of canvas I will find any little thing to doodle, I paint on any surface, and I write down any idea I get so that I’ll remember to play with them when I have canvas again.

Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of tiny watercolors, referencing images that come across my Instagram feed, on plain paper. I wouldn’t want to sell the originals, because watercolor on paper can crack, but I do make prints of them so people can still enjoy.

Last week I did four that I was really happy with and turned them into prints for my Etsy shop.

Happy Puppy, Lipsticks, Twirling, and Hippy Puppy.

Wanna guess whose Instagram’s I referenced?

Art Movement Project

IMG_0069On Monday, I finally re-started the one project I had planned for the year: Sampling Art Movements.

I had already started this project once, but I didn’t have a control image and ended up just copying the art styles instead of really figuring them out. I think having a control image will fix that problem.

The picture is the table setup I was working with on Monday and the Abstract Art Sample that I created from the control image. I sampled six different art movements on Monday. They are all on roughly 7″ by 5.5″ cardstock.

When I’ve finished them all I’d like to get them out in matching frames and display them together.

Overflow

IMG_0062I really need to build another box, but before I do that I want to reinforce this box. That way I can put the new box on top of this one and have them both open to the front instead of the top!

The box is set up now with cardboard dividers that keep the structure of the box intact, but if I put in a particle board, or something similar, as a divider I won’t have to worry about the second box collapsing on top of the first.

I’m planning on making the opening flap open upwards so that I can still hang stuff on the fronts of the boxes as well.

I’m really excited about this and hope to do it within the next few weeks. I’ll post some pictures when I get it finished. In the meantime, buy some art.

Cardboard

img_9568I thought I should write a post explaining why there is always cardboard in my studio… in case you were wondering.

I do coat every painting with an acrylic sealant, but the edges of paintings are hard and square – obviously. The sealant does not protect against scratches. The sealant protects the painting from dust and accidental splashes. So, if you’ve had a painting hanging for a while, notice it gets dusty, you can get a damp – not wet, damp – cloth and wipe it off.

Cardboard keeps the paintings from rubbing up against each other and transferring the paint. If I didn’t have cardboard in between each painting there would be a new scratch mark every time I pulled a painting out or put a painting away. The cardboard protects each painting.

Cardboard keeps my work safe until you’re ready to buy it. 😉
