This week’s art auction is something just a bit different! This week I’m posting one of my painted guitars. This is the smallest of the guitars I’ve done, it’s a decorator guitar, made of wood and painted with acrylics. Starting bid is the same, $20. Stand is included with the guitar, so you have a perfect way to display it on a mantel, shelf or desk! Happy bidding!

This week’s art auction is for a painting I did yesterday. Usually, I auction off older pieces, but this week I decided to put this one up. It’s a new idea that I was inspired to create and I’m excited about how it turned out. Albuquerque artist, Rachel Harris, inspired me after seeing one of her paintings in a local art show last Friday. I love the way she used pencil drawings in the under layer, then painted over, leaving the pencil showing through. I once, long, long ago made landscape paintings with pencil and watercolor and I have always loved the way pencil and color look together. Below is an example of one of my old landscapes.
"La Cueva", 18 x 24" watercolor and pencil, 1996
As a matter of fact, I still have prints of this painting available that I don’t think I’ve listed anywhere! The rocks are all done in pencil with the top and bottom in watercolor. I did a whole series of this style of paintings.
ETC., I am feeling much better after venting my feelings here on the blog yesterday. I have made a vow to myself to be more real and stop putting my persona out as an ONLY a happy go lucky, everything’s always perfect person. I mean, for the most part, I AM that person, but like everyone, I have my dark side too. I have decided that it’s time to take off my mask and be real, no matter how it may appear to people on the outside. This is ME, warts and all! 🙂

Here is this week’s art auction. “Calm Down” is one of my daily journal paintings done back in 2007. I’ve had this one hidden away for years, just uncovered it while cleaning out the studio! This framed painting has a hand painted, hand made frame that I built from scratch because I couldn’t find a frame I could paint on. I did a series of about 10-12 of these and this is one of the few that remains with me. Until NOW! 🙂 Starting bid only $9.99 as a big THANK YOU to my fans for supporting my art all these years! I am very grateful to do what I love for a living. May you ALL live the life of your dreams! 🙂
