Homecoming Commission


One of my favorite things is being asked to commission a piece of Art.

There’s just something fascinating about seeing what painting really captures someones attention plus the pressure of a deadline keeps me on task.

So yay for me 🙂 because I have a couple lined up at the moment.

One is an electric guitar that someone would like done abstracted,

and the other

is a rendition of my “Homecoming” abstract painting but in a different color scheme.

Homecoming 16"x20"

Homecoming 16″x20″

So that is what I’m working on this evening 🙂

Well less chat more paint.

I’ll be sure to post both pieces once they are complete.

Cheers,

She’s Alive!


Alright so I haven’t exactly been the best little blogger in the world lately.

But I’ve been swamped, really!

As I mentioned in previous posts, I’m getting ready for the Shopping show that’s  on Nov 15th.

Only 2 more weeks to go *yikes*.

Needless to say, I’ve been a busy little artist.

But tonight I’ve got pictures of some of the goodies I’ve been working on.

As you’ve seen in a previous post I’ve been working on some nifty acrylic bookmarks.

Well, I now have over 100 of those funky little guys.

Here’s a look at the newest batch but these ones don’t have their ribbons or eyelets yet.

For those of you just tuning in, here’s what they will look like when they’re finished.

I also mentioned that I was working on frames.

They measure approximately 10.5″ by 10.5″ and hold a 3.5″ x 3.5″ picture.

Take a peak! Great way to brighten up any room.

And last but not least Bangles!

These are going to make an awesome fashion accessory.

They come in a variety of sizes and styles.

(If anyone’s interested I can get the measurements for you)

Very Fun.

The insides will be painted solid black as you can tell, these ones aren’t completely finished yet.

Well that’s if for tonight.

If you’re interested in any of the above products or would like to commission the artist you can email her at themilkeway(at)gmail.com

Cheers & Good Night!

Bookmarks Gallore


Well as promised here’s a look at the bookmarks I’ve done up so far.

I haven’t added the ribbons or eyelets to all of them yet, but it gives you an idea of the immense color variety available.

They have a unique plastic/leather feel to them.

For those of you who missed my first bookmark post here’s the information again for you.

Colorful portable art for on the go people!

The perfect companion to any book and a unique Christmas gift for any book/art lover!
Each bookmark is hand painted using acrylic paint on acid and ligning free card stock.
It has been given a clear protective coat making it water resistant.
They measures 6″x2″ and feature a small eyelet with a co-coordinating ribbon that has been fray stopped.
The back side is plain black with a signed label. $4.00 each.
No two are alike! )

I’m hoping to have around 50 done up for the trade show in November.

If you’re interested in purchasing one or would like a particular color combination email me at themilkeway(at)gmail.com

Cheers!

Guitar Commission-Part Three the conclusion


Well, the guitar commission is finally finished and delivered to the customer.

I’m still not quite sure if I like it with or without the hands better,

but it doesn’t matter since the customer is happy with it.

Just for fun, here’s a look at the progress again:

1-acoustic guitar

2-Sanded and primed

3-background roughed out

4-background details added

5-addition of the hands

6-hand details

7-re-assembled, signed and sealed. Only thing missing are the strings.

Now it’s going to live happily ever after mounted on a wall for display.

If you’d like to commission a used or broken instrument for display,  or any other artwork

email me at themilkeway@gmail.com

Oh and I’ve added a commission gallery where I’ll be putting all the artwork that I receive as commissions.

Cheers for now!

Guitar Commission-Part 2 and 1/2


Just a quick note to let you all know that I have finished the guitar.

It is currently signed and sealed but yet to be delivered.

I’ll be delivering the finished piece to by customer tomorrow at which point I will post the completed photo’s.

I would have finished sooner but our car was stolen Friday which needless to say, had an adverse effect on my creativity level.

With this commission finished I can focus my energies into creating things for the November trade show.

I’m planning on having an assortment of prints for sale, a bit of photography and of course some original artwork.

Oh and the business cards are all finished and printed looking quite artsy if I do say so myself 😉

Well I guess that’s it for now.

Cheers/G-night

Guitar Commission-Part Two


There’s just something about painting 3D objects that’s a fun, fun change from canvas.

The guitar is progressing beautifully.

I’m just waiting for some of the detail work to dry before adding the hands.

Here’s a few pictures to show you the progress. Continue reading

View my art in person…


I’ll be appearing at an upcoming trade show that’s taking place right here in Fort Saskatchewan.

It’s happening on November 15th at The Dow Centre.

So for the next little while I’ll be super busy making up pieces and prints to sell.

I’m also designing my own business cards here’s a couple of samples,

and I’ll post the rest once they’re finished.

(I decided to drop my ph# on these ones for obvious reasons)

They’re a double whammy you get my contact info and a sample of my work.

And of course I’ll be accepting commissions so if your based locally come check it out.

Oh and as things stand, I think I’ll be the only artist displaying her stuff.  😛

Cheers,
