“Her killing rage no one escapes.” I’ve got a little story in my head about this piece. I image this character towering over the world, breathing out flames to engulf all of human creation. On good days, there is a clearing for new life to begin again. On other days, our world goes dark and stays quiet that way until the universe ends. The painting is an expression of rage I feel better for and understand myself better through the work of it. I also really enjoyed another moment to use my neon pink…lol
Hearts For Hanging On

Painted on a piece of plywood for outdoor art in the backyard. It’s an image to express the weight of love / our reasons to keep living.
The Piercing Eye
I used a circle piece of card board from a package for painting and used shards of some flawed custom CDs that I never threw out due to the image I’d put on them. I saw another life for those shards and a few found a place in this piece.

New free hand painting I completed over the weekend. I haven’t done one of these in a long time, but it filled the days well as I wait to start my new job. It’s dedicated to having left an abusive work environment and hoping my next chapter is better. Knowing I’m worth better than what I left behind, despite how I was made to feel upon leaving. I won’t fall for that ever again.

Portrait Page Update
I updated the portraits page here with the painted collection I did a few years ago. This one is an interpretation from a cool photo of Cammie Gilbert, lead singer for Oceans of Slumber. Her tattoo in that reference photo was a lot more detail than I could even see so I improvised a tattoo and moved on…lol
Field and Flowers
This is painted on an opened brown paper bag. The edges were irregular, but I painted without clipping them and just cropped it here. This is thumb-tacked onto the wall next to my office corner. I’m working from home for the time being and love the wall of tissue paper flowers and now this new painting added. It’s a nice escape looking over at them throughout the hours of my day.
A digital variation of the plastic fabric piece I use for my arts and crafts. It’s become a piece all it’s own in years.
My orchid photo and my painting of it.
First Portrait Series
All in order from top left to the right across, the last being a self portrait (the center one is my mother back in the day). I started this back in the summer and finished last week, finally. I don’t want it to be said that all I did was abstract art. Now that’s put to rest. Prints are up as well at my zazzle shop Among the Ashes. If I had enough money I’d open a real poster shop. I’ll keep dreaming.
