I did a little experiment painting with oils on watercolor paper and it was really fun! The colors are obviously inspired by the queen @amber.carr.art
Oil on matte board 4”x6” Finished up that really cool commission! It was really fun and exciting having someone come to me for my specific style ❣️
Sketching some ideas tonight, neon primarily. It's occurred to me that pulp artwork, in color, requires lots of glowing objects - not just neon but certainly lots of it. Art Deco and Streamline design suggest retro futurism, but I'm not satisfied with that. My retrofuture isn't so masculine. But it's not all Art Nouveau curves either. I haven't got it pinned down yet. I can almost see it, but not quite. Truly a work in progress! LOL

If you’ve been watching my stories you know I’ve been juggling a lot of paintings but I got one far enough that i think it’s in a good place to share it!
“Melancholy Defense” Last year was all about protection and recovery and finding my footing in life again. Now in a much happier much safer place, thanks to some very special people, I feel brave enough and sure enough to start pushing myself and being more experimental and emotional in my work. I hope you all love it as much as I do! Prints will be available on my Etsy very soon!
So I finished a huge complicated commission I’ve been working on for a while and I’ve already dove head first back into my own work and it feels so good. Intimidating but exciting.
