Articles with outsider art

3 completed artworks today

I did three art pieces today. All three are watercolors and one is an ACEO sized (2.5 x 3.5 inches) of yet another cat for the Cat Advent Calendar series that is going on until the 24th. 
Today’s cat brings you a MOLE. 
And I did two abstracts – one is called I need attention and it was inspired by having to be around an adult having a temper tantrum slamming doors, banging cabinets and screaming and yelling over ……nothing
The last one is about feeling lonely in a crowd. 

You can see them all and more original paintings on eBay at 3amGallery store.

No Monsters Here

This is an original painting on a vintage postcard. I used watercolors because I love how they kinda soak in and really saturate the postcards. 

This piece is in the eBay store, if you get there and don’t see it – then it’s been sold. 🙂 Talk to me about a commission for a similar piece.

The Queen of the DMV

So, confession time: I never learned how to drive. I way older than a teenager and I just never wanted to drive. I love being a passenger and Uber rocks.

I do need an i.d. thought. Since I never have it out – it expired on my birthday LAST AUGUST so months later – oops I need it and it’s expired. So I go to the DMV and this woman was a total cow to me. I need my birth certificate and more i.d. 

Okay fine. Then she has an issue with how my name went from my maiden name to my name today. We need to show how that change happened. 
I was just standing there staring……. I never had to do this before. 

I went home without an i.d. I am going back with both sets of divorce papers, my social security card, my birth certificate and some bills for that hooker and watch, someone really cool will be working and think I am a total nutcase for bringing all this i.d.

This is a 3×3-inch painting on a little canvas. Ready to hang and no framing necessary. 

At the time of this writing, this piece was available in the eBay store. If you get there and it’s not there, it’s off living life with a happy collector.

The Lilac Sisters 6×9 Outsider Art Painting



lilacsisters2lilacsisters1I had this address book for decades. It was sturdy, reliable and wonderful. I moved with it from state to state and filled it up. Then last year the back finally came off and I decided to retire it. The front and back covers were a very heavy book board material so I painted it.

My youngest spawn wanted to make some leaf prints with some leaves off our li lac bush so that became the form for the three sisters. 🙂

Robot Wins 8×10 Original Acrylic Painting

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. 🙂

That Time Monsters Attacked Dresden

My friend Stephen gave me a stack of vintage postcards from around 1902 to 1914 are the dates I have found so far. This one needed monsters and if you never believed the monster attack in Dresden happened, here is PROOF on a postcard from the time and it says very plainly, “…Dresden…is full of monsters” see? I told you!

This  piece is done in acrylics, watercolors, and ink.
Size : 3.5 x 5.5

I Had Some Dreams They Were Clowns in My Coffee… original painting on vintage postcard from 1902


This came from a very funny story I was told by someone who can really belt out a tune and loves karaoke, but she learned one night singing “You’re So Vain” that she had one of the lines wrong all this time.

A friend gave me a huge stack of vintage postcards and I had to do a painting commemorating our very amusing conversation. I had to go listen to the song to see if I could that line… not really… but it’s still pretty funny. Apparently she’s not the only person that misheard that lyric according to an in-depth search on the web that lasted like 5 minutes.

This is painted on a vintage postcard postmarked 1902. The size is 3.5 x 5.5 inches.

This is a BBW in her purple protection suit with her oh so dainty red umbrella. 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 away from artists to each other or collectors.
