Eye Candy…

These are a few of my favorite paintings by artists I’m greatly inspired by.

"Sea Ice Caravel" by Amy Sol

"Spring Blush" by Amy Sol

I first found Amy Sol’s work a few years ago on the cover of Hi Fructose Vol. 5. Her work feels soft and euphoric to me. Sweet and beautiful. You can see more of it at amysol.com/blog.

Laura Laine for Oeil De La Mode

Laura Laine for Ghost

Laura Laine for Zara

I’m obsessed with Laura Laine’s work. I find it chic and glamorous. Ethereal and dark. See her amazing work (in advertisement) at lauralaine.net.

Concept Artwork by Mary Blair for Disney's "Alice In Wonderland"

Finally finished……

"Girl In Hoodie" ... I started this painting many months ago and finally reached the degree of satisfaction I needed to call it complete.

"Blue Bunny Shrooms" painting - at the start ... I painted this with the same approach I use when creating collage work. The idea of taking images that may or may not necessarily make sense together but form a cohesive finish.

When I was younger, one of my siblings (I won't name any names), carried a blue rabbit with them everywhere they went. Everywhere. It was their security blanket. And now being much older, I hold onto the memories of the things we attached ourselves to almost as a security of my own.

"Blue Bunny Shrooms" painting - finished at last ... This painting took longer than I had planned. Mainly due to lack of time. Some people have liked it, others don't see a point to it. Those opinions are all fine with me. I like it. It's the first in a planned series that I hope I can accomplish in a shorter time frame. Keep a lookout for them and thanks for stopping by!
