New Abstract


Hello again,

I find Art shows are the best way to get the artistic blood flowing again and that seems to be what’s happened.

Sunday I felt the need to sit down, put on some music and do an abstract, so I did.

I aimed for a complete abstract in the style of “Unexplained” because I really do think there are times when art should be done “just because”.

So here it is:  Be-cause~ 13″ x 9.5″

I’m thinking this may turn into a 5 part series since I happen to have 5 of these sized canvases at my disposal.

So stay tuned

Cheers,

Amanda

7 styles of—


I’ve taken a break from the “Curvy” series and started a new series focused on shoes.

More specifically, stilettos.

The series will be called “7 styles of  ————–”

Why the blank? Well that’s because I’m not telling just yet.

I want to see what you, the viewer might think it is.

What comes to mind when you think of high heel shoes?

The series will consist of 7 watercolor and ink paintings each 9″x12″ with a stiletto as the subject.

Here is #1.RED

And as per the norm, I was too impatient to wait for the ink to dry.

Let me know your thoughts.

Cheers,

Amanda


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!

#7 of Life Simplified


Create ~ krē-āt
verb
14th century Middle English, from Latin creatus, past participle of creare; akin to Latin crescere to grow te:

1: to bring into existence
2 a: to invest with a new form, office, or rank b: to produce or bring about by a course of action or behavior
3: cause, occasion
4 a: to produce through imaginative skill b: design

I’ve finished the last piece I had painted for the series, #7.

From here on I’m back to square one in terms of the creation process.

Interestingly enough 7 emphasizes creation,

so it’s only fitting that I pause here before going on.

I’ll update once I have more images to add. Til then, I leave you with #7 “Create with me.”

#4 of Life Simplified


I just finished it.

#4 of the Life Simplified series is now complete.

I’m thinking I may extend this series.

Like my husband so kindly pointed out, there are 12 sheets and I’ve only used 4 of them.

That, and I’m really enjoying working on them.

I’m hoping to do up another set either today or this weekend.

I’ll post them of course when they’re sketched out.

Anyway, here’s #4 “Cherish Me.” Continue reading

Corvus corax


Otherwise known as the common Raven is one of my favorite birds.

There’s just something about them that fascinates me.

I like the way they hop about with their shiny black feathers and smart beady eyes always sizing you up.

But most of all, I love the sound they make, that shrill caw always brings a smile to my face and a sense of excitement.

Perhaps it’s nostalgia and nothing more.

“Life” complete with “sex”


Ok, well it’s finished, “life” that is. Or at least as finished as it’s going to get for a while.

But first, let’s look at sex.

This piece was hard to get to.

I think the problem was that I was looking at what sex is and could be and forgot all about what it is to me.
I’m not real concerned if you get it or not, because frankly I think you’d have to be inside my head to fully understand it.

(And the thought of you all walking around in there is a pretty scary concept. That and the fact that I wouldn’t want liability suits springing up because you tripped/fell over something, it is pretty cluttered 😛 )

Either way, here it is. “Sex”~ Life seriesPlease do still feel free to comment.

Alright, here’s Life Series“Life” as it currently stands.

I’ve decided that I won’t just drop the project, but add to it as things come up in my life.

So, section 1 of “life” is complete.

Cheers,

A
