Category: Improved Photo Art

This is the Old Blog – Link Below for New Stuff

So, the nature of the blog needs to change. I don’t have time to post on my blog AND Facebook AND Twitter AND Instagram AND Pinterest – instead I am going to direct my social media efforts here and that way everything will be updated all in one place. You can see it all HERE

Organizing Where I Sell

support

Time has become quite the commodity. I’ve been experimenting the past year with various outlets to sell art and decided to have just two main avenues. (Obviously you can always contact me directly if you want talk commission or something.)

Original Artworks

– will be sold on Ebay

Fine Art Prints

– along with prints, greeting cards and pretty much anything you can put an image on will be available at Fine Art America.

I dismantled the store on my site – it was just too much to keep up with – plus collectors know Ebay, they know Fine Art America – and are much more familiar with those big name venues – they don’t know me, don’t trust doing biz in a place they don’t know. So, I think I found a happy medium that works for art buyers and me. 🙂

So far, so good.

Ebay has been steady selling and I only just started selling prints at Fine Art America. At the time of this writing I have 25 different prints up, over the next week I should have closer to 125 different prints to choose from! Plus you can add a mat and frame.
I’ve sold some and the feedback has been great!

If you love to read and prefer books with images. I can hook you up! Available for reading on any device OR in print if you like to hold a book in your hands.

I need coffee. I’ll post more later.

Robot Wins 8×10 Original Acrylic Painting

robotwins

robotwins1As you know, I like to paint directly on photos. I found an old beat-up movie still from the 1956 B-classic, “Earth vs. the Flying Saucers.” The photos had some wear and damage so I mounted it carefully on a heavy mat board and then painted it. Added some flames along the fence line in the back. Gotta love the 1950’s and their phallic robots.

About this piece

I love old movies. I love old horror and sci-fi movies with a passion.
This is a photo still mounted on a heavy mat board and painted directly on the piece.
The size is 8×10.
This artwork is sealed under varnish
and…. it is sold. 🙂

Donald Trump Art Pieces

Someone sent this to me today.
Apparently I got a mention in Bustle for a piece I did a while back. They did a collection of Donald Trump inspired art pieces. The Donald done in menstrual blood is cracking me up big-time.

Running the Republican Party ACEO improved photo on heavy card stock

OMG election year. I have never enjoyed and been so baffled by Presidential candidates!

I LOVE making ACEOs.
If you’re not familiar, ACEO is an acronym for Art Cards Editions and Originals.
The size is always 2.5 x 3.5 inches.

What an artist uses for to create an original ACEO is up to the artist, which makes ACEOs a very unique and collectible type of art.

ACEOs are not Artist Trading Cards (ATCs). ATCs are not sold and given from artists to each other or collectors.

About this Artwork
This is an ACEO 2.5 x 3.5 inches watercolor painting and vintage photo on a page from Sarah Palin’s book mounted on heavy mat board.
Price: $20 +3 shipping
I can combine up to 3 artworks for one shipping price!

Buy Securely from Paypal




Shipping is $3 inside the USA and normally runs around $9 to most international destinations. Just contact me if you live outside the US and I can give you a quote.

The Proper Praying Technique God Only Listens To

5.5 x 9 inches original painting on vintage photo.

properpraying1

So, you know how certain churches go door to door and want to find out where you’re at spiritually? I live in Holy Toledo and we seem to have a little more than our fair share of people knocking on our door wanting to sell me Jesus. Now, I am never rude. In fact, I listen, ask questions, and am polite. I am a lifelong atheist but I’m certainly not knocking anyone else for believing. I just don’t want to be involved.

One day two women came by and they were giving me the spiel about saving my immortal soul, yadda yadda yadda and then a woman told me that she would tell me how to pray.

She asked if that is why I didn’t believe in God wasn’t it? My prayers didn’t get answered! Well, she told me if you do not hold your fingers straight, perfectly STRAIGHT – God doesn’t listen. If you intertwine and fold your fingers, well you’re just praying to yourself she told me with a knowing smile.
Now you know.

That inspired this and about 4 other artworks that live in happy homes – this is the last one. She’s praying properly and there are old Christian symbols around the piece.

Still Not Asking for It (Trigger Warning: rape)

Still Not Asking For It
5.5 x 6.5 inches
Acrylic painted on Vintage Photo

I believe in ripping off the band-aid, so let’s get to the point. Someone very close to me was brutally raped. That was very, very bad but we’re getting past it and it’s becoming a bad thing that happened in the past, not a defining attribute of one’s own self. What I was not prepared for, in confiding to some friends what had happened, was the reaction I got from a few people. Someone I’ve known for years actually wanted to know if the person had been drinking (no)  or how they were dressed (t-shirt and jeans). Seriously? It made me angry that  people are still so uncomfortable with the notion that a man just took what he wanted in a violent, brutal way that surely the woman must have done something that gave him the green light to behave that way.
I really don’t think it matters if a woman is drunk and nekkid as the day she was born, if she isn’t into sex with you, then don’t push it, and don’t rape.
I’ve done a few pieces, this is the third in what is turning into a series.

Each woman is wearing a pageant sash that spells out “Not Asking For It.”
The size is 5.5 x 6.5 inches. The photo is from around 1910 – 1920s.
