Stuff to Buy

A Full Week of New Art! Day 5 of 5!

by ncwinters on October 3, 2014

The final day!

Thanks to everyone who purchased from the store this week. I was able to clean out a bunch of in progress projects and procure some much needed funding for our vacation, which starts today! Three offerings for you today, the first of which is an experiment I want to tackle for a future print run. The painting “SuperNature Redux” is actually a rework of an old scrap print of the same name. I reworked the print with pen, inks and acrylics to make it uniquely different than the original pencil and ink monochrome drawing. I think it turned out pretty well, and I’m planning on a future print run where every print goes beyond simple hand embellishing, but rather becomes it’s own unique original. Hope the idea is well received, look for it early next year.

“When Summer Ends” is an attempt to keep a painting simple and not overwork it. I wanted to keep some looseness in the painting, and not exactly sure where to go next, I decided to leave it and see the response.

And finally, “A Good Offense” is another in my warrior women series, with emphasis on my personal take on the traditional typical portrayals of women in art and comics. I am interested in different approaches on silhouette, hairstyles and overall different approaches on the traditional hackneyed portrayal as women in skimpy armor. Hope it resonates! Enjoy, and thanks again to all for making a Full Week of New Art a success!

A Full Week of New Art! Day 4 of 5.

by ncwinters on October 2, 2014

Day 4 has arrived!

The vacation is soon, which leaves the offerings of today and tomorrow as the final contributions to this little “A Full Week of New Art” series. Today I offer up some drawings as well as a fun little experiment which delves into the third dimension once again. “Object of Fetish: Tactile Withdraw” is the culmination of several sculptural experiments, and may be the genesis of a future body of work in a similar totemic theme. Looks for a series of similar framed sculptural works for my upcoming “Overgrowth” show at Last Rites Gallery next month. Enjoy!

A Full Week of New Art! Day 3 of 5.

by ncwinters on October 1, 2014

Rolling along!

Day 3 of 5 days of new art continues with some 3D items. I have an interest in boxes, specifically handmade and hand embellished boxes. One of my many artsy fartsy hobbies includes resining prints, art or collages to either found boxes, or boxes I make from scratch. Often they serve as decorative storage for the neverending pool of art supplies in the studio, but more often they get made from an innate desire to make things. When I find I have too many, or my art supplies exceed the limits imposed by the boxes, or when there’s simply too much stuff in the studio, I sell them off. Today I offer two such boxes.

The “Overdrive” box is made from scratch, basically two cradled panels hinged together with brass latches, with an old AP proof of the “Overdrive” print run resined to the top. The inside has a layer of corkboard on one side and a rubber mat on the other- tailor made to transport the acrylic inks I use. The inks are held with the slightest bit of pressure for if the box tips, the inks should stay upright. At some point I simply had too many jars of ink to keep in this one box, even though it’s a pretty good size. The box is quite sturdy and has a good solid feel.

The “Overflow” box is a bit simpler, just a craft box for pencils that I affixed an old “Overflow” AP print to. This one has seen some heavy use and is marked up as such. To compensate for the wear and tear, I’m including a free small varnished ink drawing with purchase.

The last item today is a small painting: “Mercurial.” Not much to say about this one, except that it was a lot of fun to do. Enjoy today’s offerings, and look for two more days of new stuff tomorrow and Friday.
