This blog has a new address.... Blue Starr Art. I'll be leaving this blog here but I won't be updating it.

Thank you to everyone that's been reading, I hope it's not too inconvenient to follow me to the new blog.

Mona Lisa my way

Acrylic on canvas board
5 x 7

I did this one for an upcoming show at the The Shoe Factory Art Co-op. My first submission to a juried show. Got my fingers crossed!

I expected this to be a mildly boring piece to do ... friends were suprised I didn't through skulls, bats or the random seahorse into it :)... but I really enjoyed it after all. I was forced to look much closer at the original than I ever had before and it was inspiring :)  I'm thinking of doing the girl with the pearl earring next.. maybe.

Hey diddle diddle......

This was an absolute blast to do.... first, I have made it my answer to everyone over the years who's told me I should illustrate children's books instead of tattoo.... so there :P lol.  Second... the woman wearing this is so pale that the colors just glow on her. We've also started talking about a Mayan priestess ladybug scene (complete with sacrificial aphid) for her other arm.... And... has commissioned a flamingo painting (that I'm starting tonight) Wheee! 

Sometimes work is too much fun to be 'work' :)

Been a while....

Long story short.... bought a house, not just any house... a 1867 victorian (squeeeee!!!!) Ok, I'm very excited about my new project ( people have done nasty modernizing things to it that I must undo) so I realized the other day that not only have I not painted much at all but I have let this blog die :(

So, because I have no new paintings and I'd like to begin the resurrecting of this blog I will share some photos of my new baby (house) and some tattoos I've done recently....

See all the destroying I've been doing? Cardio and lead poisoning all rolled into one :)

A prettier view.... I have yet to rip apart the outside, but that siding will go sooner or later

These two are different angles of the third floor (formerly) maid's quarters.... and what will be my art studio. It's huge and interestingly shaped... I love it.

Pretty lily for a first timer... it took 3 hrs and she was a trooper!

This is on Nadia, our periodic counter girl, she is awesome and she lets me do wonderfully bizarre stuff on her.

Chocolate Seahorse acrylic painting

Chocolate Seahorse acrylic painting,

This was a purely experimental painting, I started with no notion at all what it would look like... I've been told it looks like chocolate... I'm ok with that :)

Seahorse acrylic painting

Seahorse acrylic painting

Had some fun playing with the background and the eye on this one.... also wanted to do something that was a little less 'cute'.
