Finished up this blingy version of Daphne & Hootie and added it to the shop.
“Layers In the Dust” 10×10
This is my submission for a group show here locally. I finished it right at the deadline after having started the whole thing several weeks ago.
I tried something very different on this particular piece. It’s four layers of different acrylic paintings. Each done in a fluid style and left to dry several days before beginning the next one. I then took a sanding block and started taking down slivers of color in places. And used a pallet knife to cut and scrape away larger chunks. Finding the painting underneath to shine through. Ending with a power wash to clean up the muddle and chunks of leftover paint. I love the end result and seamless texture.
The month-long exhibition will be hung in the newly renovated exhibition room at 6th Street Studios and Art Center, featuring a floor to ceiling windowed storefront. The exhibition will be open to the public on the weekends. They will hold an indoor/outdoor opening reception for the show, with live music, appetizers, and raffle prizes.
These are the very last three of the SpongeBob SquarePants Patrick figures I’ll be painting up. They are in the shop now and do come with their original packaging.
These guys are in the shop now! Edition of 4.
I got a bunch of messages after posting our first Rainbow Patrick custom painted figure. I have three more I’m starting to paint this weekend. I plan to finish them all to release at the same time. If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram you’ll have plenty of notice before they enter the shop.
Finally got pictures taken of my one off Daphne & Hootie done in a graffiti splatter paint style. She will be at the Artists Market with me on June 27th if she doesn’t get picked up before then through the shop. She’s listed there now at $75.
Finished the first of 6 total Rainbow Peanut elephants. This one was claimed by ond of my best clients immediately. The other five will be finished soon and debut at the local Artists Market on Sunday June 27th. Any that don’t get snagged then will end up in the shop that evening.
I’ll admit I’ve maybe seen about five minutes total of SpongeBob SquarePants in my entire life. But I picked up a few Patrick vinyl figures a year ago. And I finally painted one up which was immediately snagged by a long time client. Who knows when I’ll have time to finish up the others.
Adding some new stuff in the shop. The last of the Love You to the Moon and Back Peanuts. And since it’s Pride Month an edition of five Rainbow Brite Dragons.
The last Peanut & Squirrel elephant is in the shop now.
I’ll be doing some more Peanuts in anticipation of the local art market and Designer Con. But they’ll be a different style. Here is a look at Love You to the Moon and Back Peanut and Rainbow Peanut (he’ll be holding a golden peanut 🥜)
