Sleepy Sundays: Grape Sky

Sundays lately have been a rest time for my family, but I still feel a draw to my work. So I’ve been working on some background sets in my spare time. This is one of those sets from a surreal series. I like the color palette for this one & may use it for another.

Have a colorful Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Bloodletting

While most of you wait until October to see some of my horror-inspired designs, I remind you that horror is where my love for art and design began.

With a string of vivid dreams and nightmares lately, it’s no surprise I took a break from my tradition of spring floral sets to work on a horror piece.

My personal life has my career feeling like bloodletting lately. My love for art has not left me, however, the strain of having to design on a schedule has been a nightmare. Art has been a cathartic release, even if the scheduling causes me pain.

Financial stresses make operation a lot more difficult as well. As always, we will see what the cards hold.

Have a relaxing Sunday

Sleepy Sundays: Beside the Forest Path

With all that’s been going on lately, my dreams have been more vivid than ever. So I revoked the power of an old tradition between my grandfather & I & started noting a dream journal of sorts again. In a recent dream journey, a woman told me “Beyond the forest path, there lies another world.” So that was the inspiration behind this title & that is exactly the direction I followed.

Have a dreamy Sunday

Sleepy Sundays: Scales

Scales

Burnt Lilac Sunset

Each week of our life lately has seemed like a series of tests. It’s been happening to everyone in my family.

In my designs, I’ve been working on different palette scales for backgrounds, for later projects.
Synchronicity is a strange & beautiful thing.


Have a pleasant Sunday
