MJ Dangerous Digital Art

I was in the mood for some Michael Jackson digital art today. And since Dangerous is one of my favorite MJ songs, this is inspired by that song and MJ's awesome performances of Dangerous.

What is *your* favorite MJ song? I also love Thriller, Blood on the Dance Floor, Billie Jean, and You Rock My World (just to name a few!).

Dylan's Sunflower Digital Art

In the past I shared a photo of my grandson Dylan's Sunflower. I've always loved that sunflower he planted. So I was flipping through some of my photos and digital art and decided to share this digital art that I created from one of those photos of his sunflower.

Sunflowers are such happy flowers, don't you think? I still have some seeds from this one somewhere. I need to find them and plant some again with Dylan!

Angelina Redux

I've been in the mood for creating digital art the last few days. And today I decided to play around with a photo of one of my old celebrity oil paintings and make some digital art out of it.

Angelina Jolie Digital Art

Now if you didn't know this was supposed to be Angelina Jolie, you might think it was pretty good. I love Angelina's face and features; I think she is really beautiful. But try as I might, I've not been able to capture her on canvas as well as I'd like. I do still like my painting of her though, so it was fun to turn it into some digital art. 

To see the original oil painting, just click here:

One of these days I will attempt to paint her again. :)

Spring Tulip

I love Spring. I love when the earth is coming alive and everything is in bloom!

Spring Tulip Art Chick Studio

These tulips were so beautiful...I had to snap a pic! Spring never lasts long enough, so I enjoy it as much as possible.

Jerusha Digital Art

I felt like doing some genealogy today, and some digital art. So I combined those two loves into this digital art of my third great grandmother, Jerusha Harmon (Sutton) Templeton.

I love this photo of her. She is another one of my ancestors who I wish I could have met. What a beautiful lady too. It's sort of bittersweet to feel so connected to someone that you never even knew. Yet without her, I wouldn't be here! 

Here's to all of the ancestors who helped bring this Art Chick into being!

Mucha-Inspired Mixed Media Girl WIP

After purchasing a wonderful art book on the works of Alphonse Mucha recently, I was inspired to start working on this mixed media girl with the peony in her hair.

She isn't finished yet. I can never seem to get enough time in my studio! So she is a work in progress. But hopefully I'll get a chance to finish her soon.

Hey Girl - Paint Covered Shirt

I may be an oddball, but the Hey, Girl memes will never get old to me. And I love Ryan Gosling anyway. :)

Hey Girl that paint shirt is sexy

I have lots of paint-covered shirts. ;)

With Brave Wings She Flies Mixed Media Girl

Well I finally managed to find time to get back in the studio, after about 2 months of not being able to. It felt so good to be back in there and getting creative again! I had just gotten some new scrapbook paper and I was anxious to put it to use in a painting. So the result is this new Mixed Media Girl.

It may be awhile before I can get into the studio again. I was glad to be able to spend about 6-7 hours in there yesterday painting away. And you know I have this thing about mixed media girls with pink hair. Not sure why, but I love that. The butterflies and roses are all from the new scrapbook paper I got.

"With Brave Wings She Flies," is what it says. Keep soaring!

Grandma Kephart in New York Digital Art

Since I haven't done any in awhile, I decided to create some digital art this evening. I used my Great Grandma Kephart as my muse, in a photograph taken of her (in the 50's, I believe) in New York.

Lots of layering of digital imagery in this digital art too. I really like how it turned out. And Grandma always loved roses. The NAIH is a family motto: Never Apart In Heart. Always true.

Love and miss you, Grandma!
