Lately +

Spring is here and I've been a busy bee. Working on a ton of new little (and big) paintings. Think moths, dark butterflies, galaxies, scarabs, bones, and celestial mermaids. I'm pretty excited. 

^^ Priming things. Sorry for the terrible phone quality. Yuck. 

^^ She has her own window, but she prefers mine for some reason. I think it's because she likes looking at herself in the mirror. She knows she's gorgeous. 

^^ This little guy is dry so I could finally scan him. Prints soon!

^^ Found this black Victorian frame in Houston. Love love love. I need to pick up more.

^^ Found this sweet note in my shop reviews. So lovely. <3

^^ These Elie Saab dresses may or may not have influenced my celestial mermaid paintings I'm currently working on (they did).

Stay tuned for in progress pieces. Oh, I'm also going on a mini trip to OKC in April for family and the arts festival. I love spring. <3

New Things +

I love skulls. Is that obvious yet? Ha. Here's my newest little guy (first painting of 2014!). I'm not sure what to name him. He's part of my Rituals + Omens series, but I kind of want to name him Omen (like the watercolor one). I don't know. I'll think on it.

I have new pretties coming to the shop soon. I've been working with brass lately (something I haven't done since college) but it feels good to get back into it. And I've been sketching pages and pages of new ideas. Excited! 

Also, you can see my little Floral Anatomy Heart featured over on prudent baby

Friday I'm in Love

Hi lovelies, I hope everyone had a good week.  It seemed to go by super fast and I still have a million ideas swimming in my head that I need to do.  I woke up this morning to freezing weather on this little island, crazy.  Living on the gulf has made me a wimp when it comes to cold weather.  That might change soon, but who knows.

^^In progress skull painting for my Rituals & Omens series.  I can't decide if I want him purely black and white or possibly a mix of muted tones.  Decisions….

^^Getting cold and stormy over here.  I love foggy windows though.

^^Oh, and I'm working on a new project that I'm pretty excited about.  Learning a new medium is hard I gotta say, but incredibly rewarding.  Hint: it involves astronomy.  Does that give anything away?  I don't know.  But stay tuned for more updates!
