Step by Step: Next Art-o-mat Batch

I'm jazzed that I have completed another batch of 50 little paintings for Art-o-mat.

This is my 9th ever batch.  This time, I have shipped 50 blocks of Little Inspirations, to be dispensed in Art-o-mat machines all over the world.  Here is just one of these up-cycled former cigarette dispensing machines below:

Look for a machine near you on this map.


Here's a step-by-step view of my progress with this batch.

I sketch floral designs + an inspirational word on black artist tiles, cut to fit Art-o-mat blocks.

Then I use my Sakura Gellyroll pens to begin filling in colors.

I keep the designs simple for maximum impact.

Next, I adhere the tiles to the blocks.

This time, I decided to paint some nail polish as highlights before I sprayed the blocks with a fixative.  

Then, I wrap the blocks in cellophane for easy dispensing and ship them off to the great Art-o-mat Warehouse of Goodness.

If you ever buy one of these, please drop me a line and let me know.

The Union Jack I proudly bear Emblazoned in my bulldog hair. A tribute to a fearsome man: Dear Winston, 'twas your sturdy plan That broke the chains of tyranny. How I desire to honor thee.

IF: Trail

A few years ago, I did this pastel painting of this "watery trail:" the Intracoastal Waterway off the NC Coast. I love the IW, and those who are fortunate enough to have spent time boating on it know how it can draw you into its magic.

IF: Skyline

This is not exactly a skyline, but it is a view from far below the steeple of First Presbyterian Church of Charleston, SC . We had an exquisite trip there on a gorgeous April weekend -- lots of inspirational painting ideas. Sorry this is a late post this week!
