New Painting, Rewards and News

Wow! Has it really been a month since my last post? Oops! It's been a tad crazy as of late, but more on that later.

Check out my new painting!

Facets of Self Realization
"Facets of Self Realization"
original acrylic painting
by Chelsea Rose

....I took a lot of "work in progress" shots while making this one...
Work In Progress- outline
But as always it began with a pen and ink outline on canvas

Live painting at The Fifth World
Mermaid butt- close up
....and the painting progressed with lots of gradual color and highlight layering.
I had a lot of fun painting this one especially because I could feel myself, my technique and my style evolving in certain small degrees.
Cant wait to get started on my next piece! And yes, I do have some concept sketches ready. I suspect I should have my under drawing on the canvas by the end of this coming week so stay tuned, there shall be photos!

And YAY! My "Earth Goddess" body art and photography expedition was fully funded on! Thanks so much to everyone who helped spread the word and donate.
I am so lucky to have such support. It's extremely inspiring!
As a big THANK YOU to all my project backers I am sending off these limited edition, high quality giclee prints of the very first released image from my unfinished series:
Backer Rewards
...Yep, these purdy prints will be shipped out tomorrow. Thanks again!

What else have I been up to?
Well, the Portland Saturday Market has opened up for the year, so I have been selling art!
Portland Saturday MarketPortland Saturday Market....So yes, its good to be doing some art vending again and there is much more opportunities to come as spring begins to bud.

But honestly for the past couple months I have not been able to give my art projects the attention I have been in the routine of providing. Not too long ago I was suddenly laid off from my day job(Thats right folks! I am a mild mannered receptionist by day, and wacky artist by night.) This left me scrambling to find a new one in hopes to keep my art supply budget up. After feverishly hunting I found myself a new job. But of course with any new job the first few weeks have been quite demanding. BUT I feel I am starting to get the hang of things and balance is returning...which means ITS TIME TO PAINT!

So hi there! Thats whats going down. I will be posting very soon with the first look at my new painting in the works.

Till wishes,
