So, when I had this opportunity to show my art at a salon in Petaluma at Dukes and Dolls Salon, I was all for it. I had taken at least 5 years off of showing my art in public outside of the shop and I have taken a very long break of painting since the pregnancy and then having Sonja was all that I focused on in the past 2 years. I mostly painted late at night once the house was asleep except me-
|"The Magical Steed" (SOLD)|
|"SHIP"- home ward bound (SOLD)|
Then I went into a nautical direction. I painted the ship, octopus, shrimp- that I titled "Briney the elder", get it? Ha.
Which led me to a mystical part which was the key, a steed and the all seeing eye (not pictured)...It was then ( whilst doing these pieces) on October 17 that my cat had to be put down. It sucked and it hurt so bad- that is when I had the idea that I must place these paintings up for sale and donate the money to the animal shelter...I painted a sketch of my cat twice but it was not turning out. It was frustrating, but I figured she did not want to be shown.
That is when the dragon came up for me...I was thinking about what a powerful year 2013 is and so the year of the dragon painting happened.
|"Year of the Dragon" (SOLD)|
The remainder of the pieces are at the salon and are still for sale. Anyone is welcome to go to the salon- 25 Kentucky st. Petaluma and check them out...and buy if you like. The prices are negotiable too! And I will gladly do custom commissions!
|"Thoughtful Girl"- $25. (SOLD)|
|"Raven" $80. (SOLD)|
|"Luna Moth" $140.|
|"Snake" $200. (SOLD)|
