"Emerge"




"Emerge" 
Alcohol Ink on Mineral Paper
Size: 9x12"

I am so excited to share that I just received confirmation that I have been chosen to SOLO Exhibit my work for the entire summer at The Footlights Theatre in Falmouth, Maine!
Special thanks to my dear friend and artist Bonnie for sending me the information. <3 font="">

Here's my note I just received: 


"Hello Kellie- Congratulations!

Well, with over 30 entries for consideration, we would love to have you "take over" the entire theatre lobby with your fabulous art work. When is the earliest you could hang your work? We have a show coming in on the 2nd of June for that weekend, then we resume our current show thru the 15th of June, followed by the opening of our summer show on the 27th of June thru August 31st. Plus we have a multitude of events throughout the summer." 

I'll be making a visit there next week to see the space and get things going. Unfortunately I don't have a lot of time to before I set up, so I've been painting all weekend long.  Just when you feel that you have enough art!

So I"m calling this one "emerged", as I have emerged from the Maine's winter snow and ice into spring! The trees are blooming, the birds are singing, and my bird feeder is full with many new visitor.  Let the painting and preparations begin!
Since they would like colors - as it is a theater, I"m opening up my abstract side. I'll be showing some of my newest resin pieces as well as the alcohol Inks. I'll be ordering the Larger Art Resin today in hopes to get it soon as I'll be using up my new gallon jug!  

I will be scheduling an Artist reception soon and I'm looking forward to seeing so many folks that have been in hibernation. We are like little bears here in Maine. 

For the painting above I used a white gel pen and an air compressor. You can find out more information about the compressor on my past blog post

Peacock Feathers New Quick Demo Video


I believe EVERYONE should try Alcohol Inks at least once in there lives, so I really enjoy sharing as much FREE content as I can for you! Really wish I could afford to give it all away, but ....well let's be honest, I wouldn't have enough to keep creating all of these videos and those supplies have to be purchased somewhere (why can't those be FREE ;)  So I really appreciate all of your fantastic comments, support, and Likes - they keep me going! I want you to know that I try to read everyone of them. 

PRINTS AVAILABLE HERE



I created the Peacock painting above in early 2014, and it's still one of my personal favorites from my alcohol ink collection. The original sold right away, but I did remember to make prints of it before I shipped it out. I'm  honored to say it's one of my top selling prints and top Pinned posts from my Pinterest page, along with Mr. Blue Lobster 



So today I thought I would show you how I created a little piece of the background (little feather circles). The original painting is more organic looking and I love the randomness of the circles, but I'll show you how to control them a bit more in the video ----> Link Below

If you haven't tried one of my online Alcohol Ink Course's you can find a Material List Video for my classes as well as I've added some online links below for you.

First I started with a wet background using Cloudy Blue and added the Lake Mist with a small detail brush. I created some feathery lines for the first layer then let that dry.

Then added a drop of Citrus and tilted my paper to spread out the inks, then added a drop of eggplant, and finally a drop of Pool Blue. 

Watch it below or If you click on this link ----->  Peacock Feathers Quick Demo Video  it will take you to my You Tube Channel which has now 60 videos!

"Powerful" - Alcohol Ink on Yupo 9x12"



"Powerful"
Alcohol Ink on Mineral Paper - $125

Free Shipping USA


Still working with the new Alcohol Ink blending solution that I created. I love how it really softens the edges of the paintings. What do you see....clouds....waves....other?

The colors in this one are Twilight, Cool Peri, and Snowcap.

Here is a time lapse video of  "Femininity" 



Both pieces of work where done on Mineral Paper, which is made from Rocks.
It's a light weight paper compared to Yupo, but it's more cost effect.  Some folks may be interested in the  Air Brush that I"m using - there is a separate Video HERE and here is the link where I purchased mine:  Masters Air Brush
