Stuff to Buy

I’ve been busy.

Working away on many secret projects (I SOOO want to talk about them!) and other irons in the fire. As sometimes happens when I’m grinding away on a lot of work, I need a mental break, so I…make a bunch of other work. It may not make sense, but this outlet provides balance when working on several other unrelated projects. The fire to create is stoked and hot, but sometimes I need a break from the specific projects and need to redirect that fire rather than let it fizzle out. So, these collections emerge. And soon, you can buy them if you like.

This collection had a clearly defined theme. Skulls. In explorations in form, texture and color, I focused on the skull as inspiration. These were extremely satisfying to make. The combination of letting the ink washes dictate their own form on the paper and the several small steps each piece took was extremely enjoyable, and dare I say meditative. As a final touch, I broke out the gold leaf for some of the pieces for some added zazz. Two of the pieces were made on a custom substrate: hot press watercolor paper mounted to aluminum panel. I had these custom made from the good people at Trekell Art Supplies. While they normally only offer cold press watercolor paper mounts, I convinced the excellent team to mount my preferred hot press paper (Arches 300 lb) to some custom panels. It was a joy to work on these extremely rigid surfaces, with the added bonus of being solid and pre-mounted on completion. I documented the process of many of the works on my Instagram page under the “stories” feature at the top of the app. 

The works are available for viewing now in the storefront, but will become available for purchase tomorrow, Friday March 10 at a random time. To get the exact time for best chance to purchase, be sure to be subscribed to my newsletter, as newsletter subscribers get the inside drop time info. Thanks as always for the support, enjoy the SKULL SALE!

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!
