Chatterbox Abstract Acrylic Mushroom Painting

Last night I was painting on my acrylic abstract art that I made (abstract painting tutorial here). I started painting it sideways, then upside down, and then I realized I could turn the stem/trunks into the bottoms of mushrooms, and of course the polka dots lend themselves to mushrooms as well.

I call this mushroom painting “Chatterbox” because I find it fascinating that mushrooms can actually communicate with each other and other plants.

I was inspired by the polka dots on a monarch butterfly. I love the contrast of little white dots on a black wing or background. This painting started out as a very abstract painting  and I’ve combined it with feathers for a fun and whimsical bohemian look. I will eventually add some mushroom prints to my art shop.

 

In case I haven’t already said it 500 times, I’m creating my own Spirit Animal oracle deck, and this mushroom painting is going to be a part of it.

Unicorn Party

Unicorn Party

Happy Monday!

On Sunday I was face painting in Asheville at a Unicorn party. Even some of the parents got in on the face painting fun. One of the Dad’s asked me to paint Prismo from Adventure Time. He’s not a unicorn, obviously 🙂

Here’s some photo from the Unicorn party:

Side note, you can book me here for face painting in Asheville. 

Speaking of unicorns, I wore my custom rainbow unicorn horn (created by Henna True artist Crissy Depina). All the kids at the unicorn party went crazy (in a good way) over it. The horn is tiny but mighty.

On Saturday Chad had his first solo show (in a while) at Odd’s Cafe, so it was an art and music-filled weekend.

What else is on my canvas or plate? I’m creating my own animal oracle deck featuring my artwork. I also have some online painting tutorials in the works.

I finally listed some digital download prints and framed art in my Etsy shop. More coming soon.
