A Method to my Madness

Today I bring you Flowers in Abstract, 1, 2 and 3. You are probably wondering…why?

There are many home decor items that can be created from original art.  Many of you have seen –  and ordered things like pillows and tote bags from my online gallery over the years.  But not everyone wants a lighthouse on a shower curtain or a tulip pillow. Sometimes, you just want something whose colors fit your decor. That’s where these come in.

You can now purchase small rugs, floor pillows and even curtains using my abstract paintings.  Now you can coordinate your bath, (shower curtain, rug or bath mat, and  curtains) or your bedroom, (duvet, bed cover, curtains and pillows and shams) in just a few easy steps.

I have partnered with Society 6 to provide these for my customers at reduced prices. Check their specials. They offer free shipping just about every day discounts ranging from 10-30 percent. The special of the day always appears at the top of the page.

To take a look, click on any of the flowers or paste this link in your address line: www.Society6.com/OwnADebbie 

By the way,  these hand painted 10×10 acrylics on canvas are for sale.   They’ll look great in any room!  $40 each or all 3 for $100! Picup is free. Shipping is additional. Email me to order.

 

 

Coming Attractions

I’ve been crazy busy of late coming up with some new art and new ideas. Coming soon…..Lighthouse frenzy and Love Rocks! If that whets your appetite, keep watching this space!

In the meantime, here’s a few Debbie ‘blasts from the past’ to enjoy. Remember, any of these and more can be ordered in a variety of fine art giclee reprints.  Just click on the painting to visit our online gallery.

It’s officially for sale!

Something different from Own A Debbie

One of the joys of being an artist is that you aren’t cubbyholed into doing just one thing. Self expression is lost if the only thing you do is acrylic landscapes, for example. That said, I have now added earrings to those things I make. Some are hand painted, others are not. All have hooks handmade by yours truly.  Feel free to add a comment. As always, if you would like to Own A Debbie, just let us know.

Earrings, from funky to elegant.

Pillows, Pillows, Pillows!

A big thank you to everyone who visited me at Ponce Preserve on Earth Day.

If you are looking to order pillows, click here:

If you are looking for a lighthouse pillow, click on Own A Debbie Originals, find the lighthouse and when you click on it, you will see everything from pillows to fine art glcless.  You might even find a mug you like!

Any problem ordering, just send me an email.

 

Recycled Art

People are always giving me discards to paint. So I sit here surrounded by large rocks, tiny pebbles, tree branches and pieces of what was once useful furniture.

I have several palm fronds that I’ve been looking at for months not knowing what to do with them. If I turned them sideways, they resembled fish. Straight up, well, they didn’t look like anything in particular. But they are unique looking and they have a surface that just cries for paint.

About a week ago, it hit me….I’d make a fun mask doing what I do best….dots! Yes, I am the queen of dots. Someday when I am long gone, they will refer to this as my ‘dot’ period.

But I digress…I sketched out a design and went to work and viola! Winkie was born!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Experimental Absract #1

Experimental Abstract #1
11×14 Acrylic on Canvas

I haven’t come up with a name for this yet, but I’m working on it.  Until then, meet, “Experimental Abstract #1”

I continue to experiment with acrylics and acrylic mediums. This one – one of the few abstracts I’ve done – was done using acrylic pouring mediums and acrylic paints without medium. The result gives this painting a 3D effect.

What’s Old Is New Again Redux

Yup.  I’m at it again! I am taking some of my older paintings and redoing them using some of the new techniques I’ve learned over the past couple of years. “All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go” is one that I always felt was missing something. I think the newly repainted version is a much better fit. If you look closely, you will see lots of tiny dresses in the window! The shop also has a name,  Millie’s Dress Shoppe. No hidden meaning…I just liked the name.

Wouldn’t this look terrific in your bedroom?

 

What’s Old Is New Again

                           Waiting For A Train

Now and then I will have something I painted a few years back that I am not entirely pleased with.  Waiting For A Train is one of those that always left me thinking it was missing something.

I’ve learned so many techniques since the earlier version and my tastes in what I paint has changed. That said, four weeks and many hours later, Waiting For a Train is officially finished.

I am more than pleased with the final result and hope you enjoy it as well.
