Lost and Found

Found 16×24 mixed media acrylics

Finished this piece a few weeks back and it’s in a gallery show right now. The bird was inspired by a picture that a neighbor took, and you could clearly see it had something in its mouth. I have it holding one of the pearl buttons from this woman’s dress and if you look closely you can see the loose threads where it fell from. Hope you are enjoying summer, it’s sure hot in Texas! I will share my oil paintings in a future post. Trying something new and loving it.

Best,

Pam

New Work

‘Guardian’ 24×36 acrylic on cradled hardboard

I’ve been busy working on some new pieces for some upcoming art events. This is my most recent piece still finishing it up but it’s mostly done. This has been sitting in my studio for literally the last 3 years, only as an idea sketched on the substrate. I have just not been inspired to finish it so I started working on it a face at a time and it began evolving. I removed some of the faces and added the ‘Guardian’ on the left as the last change. I now feel it’s what it was meant to be. It’s so weird that when inspiration strikes the painting is so easy. I guess everything has a time.

I also worked on this smaller piece. I just love it and may end up keeping it.

‘Called Home’ 11×14 collage and acrylic on cradled hardboard

I keep forgetting to post here as I try to build my Instagram page back after losing it. Please follow me there at pamcarrikerart

 

New Shop!

I recently opened a new shop and slowly but surely have been moving things over there. The new shop, pamcarriker.etsy.com is for original artwork and comissions. My old shop, thebagladysart.etsy.com will hold all of my prints. I outsource my printmaking to a professional printer and have really loved the results. I just listed several new prints and will be listing a few more, including my ballerina, ‘Wistful Glories’ next week. I only make 20 prints of 8×10 size of each work. The prints come with custom mats so you can easily pop them right into a frame. The mats are signed and titled and the prints are signed and numbered on the back in archival
pen. For more printing information you can checkout my shop.
This is the latest limited edition print I am offering. ‘Letting Go’ is featured in the current Cloth Paper Scissors The original is not for sale.
I would love if you would come by and heart my new shop, I will return the favor!

No, I didn’t forget:-)

Just in case you are wondering, I did create art yesterday, still ‘on the wagon’ I just didn’t get a chance to post it. I am going to be offering some smaller scale original works, on 185lb watercolor (acrylic) paper that will come already matted. It’s so fun to own original work but not always a practical choice with today’s economy. This little lady is the first of a series of ‘Little Women’ that will each be numbered. It is ATC/ACEO size (2 1/2 x 3 1/2) and is matted to a 5×7 size. This size will be stamped with all of the info just as an ATC, but can be easily slipped into a 5×7 frame for instant, wall art. These will be available in my Etsy Shop.
Now back to finish my Valentine’s Day cookies. Love to all of my sweet readers, have a lovely day!

A New Beginning

Busy working like a fiend, but managed to finish this finally and get it listed. No journal page today, but at least some art and lots of writing. Hope you are all being productive:-) The sun is out and makes me long for spring, but that cold 30 degree temp is keeping me inside. This piece feels just like that to me. Longing for spring flowers on a bright, cold, winter day.
Misty Mawn’s latest piece inspired me a bit with this one. I love her use of white. She gets so much texture from a simple color palette.
