Hello! Sorry I have been absent as of late, lots of stuff going on, so I’ll try to be better about updating the blog again. I’ve done a couple more digital art pieces for my Society6 and RedBubble Shops. Society6 is getting most of my attention so everything will go up there first, and eventually RedBubble will be updated.
First up are some happy cat rainbows! I saw them specifically for many items on the printing sites, which is why I haven’t painted them with actual paint (acrylics,) which was honestly the whole point of me getting an iPad. Sometimes I have ideas that work best in my mind as digital art, and I can better work with it for placing on all the different items available at Society6. I have painted over a thousand paintings, but you don’t see half of them in the print shops for that reason. They just don’t work or fit right. Anyway, Cat Rainbows! I couldn’t decide which color combo I liked the most, and I got a lot of different likes from others, so I put all 5 up. I stopped myself from doing more color combos…for now. You can find links to specific rainbows by clicking the corresponding rainbow sets shown: Rainbow 1, Rainbow 2, Rainbow 3, Rainbow 4, Rainbow 5.
Since it’s summer and summer in Pennsylvania means fireflies, I decided it was time to do some fireflies and kitties! I will paint something similar to this, or at least I hope to soon! These two black kitties were just surrounded by the lovely fireflies coming out for the season!
My rhododendron and lilac are in full bloom now and honestly just walking out my front door is a treat. The scent of the lilac bush is amazing-it almost makes me forgive this area of PA for not being able to grow my favorite night blooming jasmine. Almost. The bees are happily buzzing around, inspiring me to make another bee kitty painting (working on that today for possibly tomorrow!)
Society6 is having a big sale on all items! Clicking on the images will take you to the coordinating section of my shop. 40% off all wall art is pretty huge! There are so many items and options. I have over 350 images on items for holidays, or for every day. Mini prints and mini framed prints make excellent gifts!
My newest painting for today! Digital week is over so I thought I’d start back painting with a funky chicken and cat. If you’ve followed my blog for some time, you know I used to have backyard chickens. They were wonderful. Not only because of the fresh eggs, but we raised them from chicks and they were the sweetest and funniest creatures. Puddy cat loved to hang out in the yard while we tended to the chickens.
On a different note, today is also World Goth Day. It’s a running joke in my close circle of friends and family that I’m goth, only because we’ve all been asked so many times by random people if I’m goth. I’m not. Also, I re-did the first version of my Black Cat Lady digital art piece, took away the blue hair, kept the orangey background from the second version, and put the black button up blouse back on her. So that version is also available in my Society6 Shop now. I figured she’s kind of apropos for today. =)
I’m pretty sure I thought the same thing last Friday but, how is it Friday again?! This week has flown by. I think this is going to conclude my “digital art only” week because I’m not sure I can go a Caturday without painting with acrylics. I have had a lot of fun getting more used to creating art on the iPad vs traditional painting. This is how I started, teaching myself Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightwave 3D, and 3D Studio Max during my down time working as in IT in the Navy. Of course I’ll still create digital art in my down time from painting, but I won’t focus a whole week on it…I don’t think. Well, we’ll see. I hope you have enjoyed my pieces this week! I had a lot of fun making them. As always, all the new digital art pieces are available on a variety of items in my Society6 Shop!
Ok before I end this post, I have a request. I started this more as a self-portrait with my typical attire and might have made my hair a little more blue than black-but that was totally to separate it from the cats and top. Anyway, I thought it was too much, and I needed to brighten it up, hence the orange. My Mom insists she likes the original darker version, what say you? Leave me a comment below with which you like more! Also I didn’t add a background to the first one since I changed it completely.
