Three New Pen and Ink Drawings, a mermaid, faery and a dancing pixie boy

Its Monday already?
Had a nice weekend relaxin and working on art projects. I managed to finish my Warrior Woman painting, photos will be posted of that soon.

I also managed to get off my butt and scan some of my most recent pen and ink drawings:
Graceful messenger
"Graceful Messenger" Original pen and ink drawing by Chelsea Rose

Mermaid pen and ink drawing by Chelsea Rose

Dancing Fae Boy
Dancing Pixie boy - original pen and ink drawing by Chelsea Rose

.....Perhaps these will be made into paintings one of these days.

Also check out my better half's most recent music release:
Bone and All: Audio Entheogens Vol. 3 - take a listen, let the vibrations transport you.
"Entheogens are a psychoactive substance used for spiritual or shamanic means. Entheogens are mostly derived from plants, but can also been found deep in the vibrations of audio waves.
In Audio Entheogens Volume 3 we have more original tracks produced by Bone and All. Opening with the vibrations of "be" that warps into "Persistence of Time", then we dive back into the rolling vibrations of the piece simply titled "be", followed by a voyage out into the aether realm with the "psychedelic eye", and finally, transcending the self through a track known as "up" that features a few words from Alen Watts."

Much love!

Its Been A While.

Hello all,
I realize its been awhile since my last post. I am just now getting over a fairly intense bout of cold/flu. Feeling much improved though, thanks!

I wanted to share what I have been working on:
Work In Progress
Its a new painting that I am calling "Goddess Of the Hunt."
Its actually a commission piece for an old Venice beach sister friend, Sheera ( do click to take a listen to her music!), who has blossomed into an amazing singer and songwriter. She has commissioned me to do the art for her up and coming EP and wanted a fierce yet dreamy warrior woman.

It started out with this concept sketch:
Goddess of the Hunt
(original pen and ink drawing!)
Then I painted a rough background layer of acrylic on a 14" x 14" canvas and transferred the drawing via light projector with India ink pens to give myself the basic outline to flesh out:
Warrior Woman work in progress

And here is a closeup of my 1st swipe through with some color layering:
Warrior Woman work in progress
...The painting isn't done yet but I feel I am getting very close!

Now, switchin gears a bit here. I wanted to share with you my alter space:
My Alter
I am excited to have my lil alter featured in my friend GreenWoman's blog. She is doing an interesting series of blog posts about peoples sacred spaces and all the various ways people create them....Check It Out , and see more photos of my alter place plus some words I wrote about what having an alter space means for me, what the various things on my alter signify and more.

Rain is predicted for the weekend so I am going to stay at home this weekend instead of selling art at the Portland Saturday Market. Will be focusing on finishing up the above painting and workin out on my patio planting an herb garden :)

Sending love and light!

Art Market , Up Coming Gallery Shows and More

So, my face is a lil burned from all the sun we had over the weekend. My good sense was over ruled by my body's thirst for the warmth of sun on my skin...but i will survive!
Had a nice two days down at the Portland Saturday Market during which we debuted Danny's Ebru Screen print work for sale. Check out our setup with the addition of more art:
Portland Saturday Market
So far we have gotten a great response towards the new prints for sale!
We are at the Portland Saturday Market selling art every weekend, come say Hi and check out our work if your in town.

I have been using the time spent sitting at the market to do lots of drawing:
Drawing time
....Now if only I could find the time to scan and post all this new work!
