Pile of art!

Jun. 18th, 2012 | 12:45 pm
posted by: gymnopedie in shiftingdreams

Just came back from doing some circus art on Saturday, and I'll be doing finished paintings from ideas I've gotten - all of those are all on my facebook for sketches.

Picking up art from one show this week, and driving down 2 blocks to drop them off at a home improvement store that's locally owned (small chained, maybe 5 stores in the St Louis area).

Next month I've got a small show down the road at a tea/wine/oil shop in Lebanon, IL for two hours, on either the 20th or the 27th and that'll be during a wine and jazz night. Kind of looking forward to this, usually I'm doing group shows with 20 other artists so I'm just another name on the wall.

And now, art since the last time I posted. Prints/originals have information up on the site :)

I post more here on Tumblr, and WIPs, doodles, etc go up more on facebook.

The Mask Collector

12x18 watercolor & acrylic

Listened to far too much Tea Party (specially Transmission) while working on this one:). Sort of toying with the idea of redoing the Dark Goddess just to see what I'd get style-wise, and well... got this instead :)

January Project - Feel Free to join in!

posted by: gymnopedie in shiftingdreams

Art Forum I post at is doing a daily sketch thing for all of January. Posting this here to remind myself (and if anyone else wants to join in), because the topic’ll probably fall off the page tomorrow.

Parameters:
1.) 31 sketches in 31 days, 1 per day.
2.) artist can use pencil, pen, marker or ink, an ink wash, colored pencil or paint (opaque white) for highlights, one accent color maybe used.
3.) sketch should be 4”x6” max (portrait or landscape your choice).
4.) try to maintain a 90 minute time window
5.) Weekly products posted on Sunday. (If you want to post them, feel free to post on this community! :) )
6.) below the sketch, include date, time spent on it and title.

Goals:
1.) To break out of our comfort zones and hopefully brush the rust off of our basic skills.
2.) Have some fun.
3.) Maybe discover a new avenue we left somewhere in our past.

Painting I did for my parents, based off of a photo (behind the cut) my mother took from the porch of their house. Down in North Carolina, one fall morning. She walks around her town sometimes taking snapshots of trees for me :)

2012 Calendar

Nov. 8th, 2011 | 08:46 am
posted by: gymnopedie in shiftingdreams

I just wanted to let anyone know who's interested that I put the pre-order up for this years calendar :) It'll be the standard 11x17in (when fully opened) spiral bound 12 month calendar. I'd made one last year and it came out really well, and had a few people asked for one for this year sooo... here it is!

Pre-order here

You can see some pictures on the site from what I picked up last year. I'm hoping to hit 50 orders by the 23rd so I can go through a local printer (that's their minimum order)
