Sentimentally Deranged

I just finished a new series titled Sentimentally Deranged consisting of 3 paintings.  All 3 are done on a 4" x 4" x 1.5" wood artists block with acrylics.  I also wrote poems for each one that tie the entire series together, I think, quite well.  Each of them are now available in my Etsy Shop for the very reasonable price of only $30 each for these original pieces.  So in order from 1 - 3 here they are...

Darkness falls and shadows fade
your words pierce through me 
like the sharpest blade
the stars turn black as the light goes out
there is no more reason
to scream and shout
In my pain I call out for you
as the darkness surrounds me
I know that you feel it too


They all think they know her so well
they dont know that 
behind her mask she secretly dwells
hiding all her pain and tears
its not a life 
to have to live in constant fear
but in her mask she feels strong
gives her the power
to feel like she can go on
that and the creatures of the night
they make her feel 
like she can win any fight
so forever in disguise she'll stay
forever being the Bat Girl
to this very day!

She plays the princess with her pink hair
the perfect life, no reason to care
but they don't know the pain she hides
all the heart ache she feels deep inside
the hurt and tears they all get locked away
the keys been thrown out so forever buried they'll stay
she'll put on a smile just as she's been shown
forever the "perfect" princess, sad and alone

New Paintings

I have 3 new paintings to share with you today and a couple of more on the way as soon as I get them photographed as well.   As some may have already noticed I have started writing poems to go with each of my new paintings just as I have always done with my art dolls and I am totally addicted to it! lol  It just happens without even thinking about it now, as I am painting the picture I am writing the poem in my head at the same time, I dont think I could stop even if I tried lol So for each of my originals that have a poem assocciated with it I will be including the poem either written on the back where possible or if it isn't possible then it will be included printed on a separate card.  All three of these originals are now available in my Etsy Shop and just the first 2 are available there in print form as well.   These are the new paintings and their poems....

My Pet Monster
8" x 10"
acrylic on canvas panel

My pet monster
best friend I ever had
through all the good times
and even all the bad
we walk the streets together
some people gawk and stare
when you moan "hi" to them
it gives them quite the scare
I don't mind when you drool
and your eyes rolls in your head
your still totally cool 
and always welcome in my bed
and when your limbs and tail
fall off and need repair
I can stitch them on again
I will always be right there

Zombie Ballet
6" x 8"
acrylic on canvas panel

Ever so gracefully 
she dances all around
across the floor
up and down
as she performs
the Zombie Ballet
ever so beautifully
on this special day!

Zombie Kittie
4" x 4" x 1.5"
mixed media on artists wood block

My Zombie Kittie 
is so cool
even though
she moans and drools
shes always there
if I feel sad
to cheer me up
by being bad
we always have
the very most fun
even when 
we get chased by guns
there's always room 
in my cozy bed
for my zombie kitty
even if shes undead

For the new year I have taken part in an ACEO Swap going on within the ACETSY Team and I just finished mine last night!  For anyone unsure of what an ACEO is...

ACEO = Art Cards Editions & Originals
must be 2.5" x 3.5" in size and can be any medium
very collectible and quite often traded 
when trading they are often referred to as ATC
ATC = Artists Trading Cards

 For this swap they must be new originals done for the swap so my partner and I decided on a theme that was "Dark, Raven, Crow, Gothic" and so this is what I came up with...

This ACEO is titled "Cheer" and is mixed media done on a piece of linen canvas paper.  I used an old page out of a book, modge podge, gesso, Rooibos Tea to stain and acrylic paint and ink for the picture.  It is signed, titled and dated on the back and comes with a certificate of authenticity which is also pictured with it.  As well I wrote a little poem to go with it and it is also written on the back of the artwork.   This is the poem...

He stands and waits
he watches the clock
time ticks by
tick tock tick tock
here it is
a brand new year
he celebrates
the loudest cheer!

Would love to hear your comments or criticisms below...

New Art To Ring In The New Year

Sorry I have been so absent on here so far this year but it is only because I have been sooooo busy creating!  So I figured it was high time I took a moment to share some of all these new creations on here.   To see everything as I make it be sure to follow me on Facebook and you will never miss anything again but I will also try to work in more time to post on here as well!

I have been busy making creepy cute hand painted wooden magnets ....

Also I have introduced a new line of art dolls that can be used in a variety of ways! They hang from a 3" ribbon so you can use them as an ornament, a key chain, hang from your car rear view mirror or anywhere else you can dream up!  Here are just a few but surely check out my Etsy Shop to see the whole line as each one is unique and one of a kind! (except for Moe as I know I have quite a few fans of Moe that would be interested in getting one so I have made a few already and will make as many of him as I need to!)
