My TATTOOS SERIES is live!



TATTOOS SERIES - SIREN, originally uploaded by kathy weller.
As I've been blogging about all week, my TATTOOS series of original paintings is now finally live (woo hoo!) and for sale in my Big Cartel store! I enjoyed creating these paintings very much, and I am so happy to share them with you. You know, it is nice to offer a painting for sale when it still has some of that "just created" fairy dust all over it... and look, I have not just ONE but FOUR small but mighty pieces that fit that description. A few things I want to mention about these paintings:

Each painting is 4" x 4". They are intimate in size yet they are highly detailed and richly layered paintings.

• My paint of choice is Golden products and Liquitex Professional series. I find these brands to make the finest acrylic paints on the market. I am telling you, in my experience nothing kills a burst of creative inspiration like bad materials (been there!) so I ALWAYS buy the very best I can afford. And believe me it shows, in the work and also in my dedication to it. So yes, good materials are not only GOOD materials but they assist and enhance the experience as well as the joy in creating the art itself.

• I am not planning to create any further pieces in this series, and for the foreseeable future you will not see any more of this painting style from me. This was a "comet in the night" so to speak, just when I needed the light of a shooting comet to reinvigorate my creative spirit! While I love the results, this style of work is not a path I am actively pursuing right now.

• I won't be selling art prints of this series for the foreseeable future. In thirty years, who knows? But I have made the conscious decision to not sell prints of this series for a couple of very good reasons (which I will keep to myself). :)

So, if you are reading this far, thank you for your interest in my work! I hope you enjoy these paintings as much as I enjoyed the process of creating them. :) I appreciate YOU for your interest in  following my creative journey.Thank you for that, and for being here!

Beautiful work, Kathy! Love the background. The quality of your paint is great, but it's got nothin' on the quality of your artistic skill!
