I have this thing lately for tiny, little paintings. Maybe it is the economy since everything seems to be scaling down. Even Starbucks.

It's pretty easy to display these works. Just put them in a picture frame. I am currently using black ones from IKEA - nice and simple. They look good in groups. I think it is nice to put art in unexpected places.

This is one of a series of small works with heavy texture. I am calling it the Landscape Series. I know it is not the typical greens and pretty trees and all but I kind of see it as a topical view. Maybe the red is like a tornado warning. I don't know. This is exactly why I don't analyze my art. The last few sentences made absolutely no senses. I call it the Landscape series because that is what I thought of when I did the texture. So there. :)
This painting is available in my eBay store.
Take care!

About Me and Art

I have decided to start offering my art work online and this blog will keep readers informed of what is going on in my life. I think that is probably the best way to gain more understanding of my art, if anyone wants to gain understanding. For me, I just enjoy looking at it. I enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoy making them.

My life is pretty normal. I am going to school for accounting (don't ask! lol) and I bartend part time at a really nice hotel (not naming any names.) I like to go to concerts, go out to eat and attend art events. I really like going to see art on nights when they keep the museum open late and make it into a party of some kind. I'd rather go then when you can be a little louder and talk to your friends and generally have fun while looking at art.

My art is mostly about my curiosity. I like to find new ways of adding texture to my paintings...the more the better. I like playing with colors and I like using several shades of the same color in a single painting.

Enough about me for
