30 Paintings in 30 Days, Day 2, and Wiggly Squiggly Sperm!

SPERMMy work is so detailed that this is quite a challenge to make 30 paintings in 30 days, especially since I need to complete new work for several shows and open studios coming up this Spring and Summer.

So today I played with paint. Even though my work is playful, it is so unlike me to go at something free form. This is a 5 by 7 watercolor on aqua board that is varnished. Love those luminescent paints!

My tools usually are my #3 pencil,  Crow Quill pen, India Ink, and an eraser, even before I get to any painting. So hopefully tomorrow I will have finished another creature feature. They take the better part of a day to complete.

I certainly thank Kelley McDonald and Leslie Saeta for inspiring me to challenge myself. Sometimes it is the offhand comment that sparks a dream in one’s mind which propels us forward.

Marge Simpson, Pretty In Pink and Gorgeous Jewelry

Here is a small ink and watercolor called Marge Simpson. She is 4″ by 4″ and on aqua board. I thought I would have some fun with a good hair do. Marge is $75.00 inclusive of shipping.

Here is another little 4″ by 4″ ink and watercolor on aqua board. I love this medium as I can watercolor then varnish the panel. Pretty In Pink is also for sale for 75.00 inclusive of shipping. If you are interested please contact me at susanmedyn@cox.net

And I wanted to add a sample of one of my new friends jewelry, Donna St Amant. This is a beautiful necklace made of Sterling Silver with a Blister Pearl on a string of Coin Pearls. Her work can also be seen on this weekend’s  open studio tours that I am busily getting ready for. http://www.southcoastartists.org/openStudio.html

A Little Bit of Fun!

The Cat and the Fiddle, 2011, 9" by 9", $250

This is a painting I made for the brochure of South Coast Artists www.southcoastartists.org for this summers open studios. I normally don’t make square paintings but I think my friends in the painting  are anything but square.

Stone Sole Picnic, Ink and Watercolor, 9" by 12", 2011, Sold! but I have limited edition gicleés of this work for sale for $60.00 matted to 11' by 14" and beautifully framed in a silver bamboo frame for $125.00 inclusive of shipping and handling within the continental US.

I was having fun with this years theme  of “Heart and Soul” for South Coasts Artists. I had to take things literally and put a little sole into my work. I originally thought I would title it “Eat Your Heart Out”,  as my sole has his mouth open ready to eat  some hearty seaweed, but since this sole was up against a wall, I had fun with the pun. And this just sold to a dear dear friend who I had worked with many years ago. Thank you Sue!
