Peachy Cheek : Art Updates

As usual, I am working on more than one piece at a time. I have about 4 different paintings in the works, and I am very happy with the way they are coming out...I will show you the other 3 in another post:) I really like the way the red shawl is coming out in this one. I wanted bold colors (like usual) and I used a metallic blue for the background, which is a little different for me. You can't tell in this picture, but I used gold metallic paint to make small details in her white shirt. I love it just the way it is, but I know it's missing something...Any ideas?

One of my newest completed pieces is, titled, "Cholita" which is inspired by the native women in Bolivia, called "cholitas". And I have alot of little trinkets from Bolivia, that inspire me, from their colors, to their clothing and the hats they wear. I wanted to make my only little cholita with the long braids an all. The original measure 8x10 inches and I have a print availble of her in the Etsy shop. I also wanted this to be bold and colorful, the background is a bright red (which has become my favorite color) with a light fading of orange and yellow, that is a little hard to make out in the picture.

Sneak peak of some of my new clay/ceramic pieces...think cute spanish peachy cheek cherubs...

Here is another sneak peak of my two newest clay and ceramics. The one above is of a little skull girl I made for fun with clay...stay tuned for a little movie I secretly taped of her walking around the house.. I love working with clay for fun, and made a bunch of new clay pieces.

And below is a little ceramic saint holding a cute little bird...I still have lots to paint on her...

I will keep you updated with all the new pieces. I have been working really hard on a few new paintings for the upcoming small art and craft show I am doing with the CT Etsy Team. A few of them are driving from all over Connecticut for this little art/craft show I am doing with them, so I really hope with all the work we have been doing, that we get a good group of people come in.

The place is called, "The Space" and its an amazing place, it is a non-alcohol music venue, for all ages, it has a coffee and sandwhich shop, and a vintage boutique, called "The Attic". I think a place of its kind should be created in as many towns and cities as possible. As someone who doesn't drink and doesn't particularly enjoy being in large crowds of people who drink just for the purpose of getting drunk, I think a place like The Space is a wonderful refuge if you just want to hang out, do something different, and listen to some new and local musicians ...well enough about that....sorry for that rant and rave ;)

Wearable peachy cheek art....

I have been working on some new wearable peachy cheek items.
I love my day of the dead painting, so I made him come to life on a t-shirt and matching tote bag. And had to add some of my cute little pinback buttons (the buttons are for sale in the shop)

I am thinking about creating some more tote bags to sell in the Etsy shop.

I love tote bags, I use them for everythig. What do you guys think?

Also , I am trying out listing some original art in e-bay.

The "Milagro"original painting is listed on e-bay : Click here to purchase or view.
