Did you say Self-Portrait?

Yes I did. I had a very creative outburst on Saturday night. Stayed up until 3 am to write and work on my “Paula Beck Story” art book. I tried to sleep but my muse wasn’t having it. At first it was one little idea, so I got out my small bedside notebook and started writing. After 3-4 pages I realized I needed to get to the computer so I could type. The words were coming faster than I could write them long hand with a pen and paper.

One of my flashes of inspiration came as the idea to do a self portrait in pencil as a special edition print to go with my art book. That turned into a self portrait in oils of me as a young Private in the Army, in front of one of my spiral paintings. In particular, the red, yellow and blue painting I’m working on for the Face-Palm Patriots show in November. It could turn into a series, who knows?

I started practicing a little portrait sketching today. It’s been over a decade since I’ve drawn or painted a portrait. I used to paint portrait commissions for a living. Painting someone else for a commission is one of the most stressful things I’ve ever done as an artist. I had to stop.

Self-portraits on the other hand. Frida Kahlo is one of my favorite artists. Need I say more? I think I may be starting my Frida phase as an artist. Only time will tell. I’m kinda into this idea. Stay tuned!

NEW ACEO limited editions

I mentioned in an earlier post that I would be putting up some special limited editions for the holidays. I know, it’s kinda late for that(unless you buy soon!), but these will be in my etsy shop indefinitely. Of course they are small editions, only 10 each, so they will go fast at only $5 each!

I have 20 images total that I will be listing throughout today and tomorrow. Here’s a link to my ACEO section so you can see them all together;

Some of the images are ones that I have printed at other sizes, but some are not available anywhere else. The originals have sold and I never made prints of them before.

In other news, the show in Gallup was a great success! The weather was cold and snowing, we had to spend the night because the interstate was closed overnight. I was able to convince a couple of my artist friends to go along too, so we had a great time! Thanks again to Lyndon at House of Lyndon, for showing my work!

Two more new prints for 2007
