Art-o-mat Lately


Mini Masterpieces Latest Batch

This latest Art-o-mat batch for me was full of Mondrian and Matisse.


This is my 8th batch of Mini Masterpieces for Art-o-mat.





And I've been drawing on planes lately while on business trip.  
A little turbulence can make you forget about punctuation!



Clarice's Latest Batch of BoogerBrains


Clarice also made a full set of 50 fall-themed BoogerBrains, also.



Lots of Trick or Treat,


sunflowers, Jack-o-lanterns, 


fall scarves, and 


and pumpkin spice lattes.

Press for Art-o-mat

Art-o-mat is a movement that brings affordable, accessible art to the public, for just $5 a pop.  That's why it's pretty cool to see that Art-o-mat has been highlighted by Forbes magazine as an amenity at America's luxury hotels.  Check out the article here.

Kind Letter from an Art-o-mat Patron

It is a privilege to make art for those who really appreciate it.  There is nothing better than receiving a thoughtful response from an art patron who gives you a glimpse into how much your art means to her.  Recently a patron bought piece from my Little Inspiration series.  Here is a wonderful email from Tammy below:
Dear Nicole -  
I wanted to let you know that I purchased your "Little Inspiration" "love" from the re-purposed cigarette machine at the BMOFA! I can't tell you how much joy this little piece of art has brought to me and how perfect it is as a momento of our trip! 
We visited Boston this summer from Richmond, VA to see our oldest daughter who moved to Boston in January. It was my first trip to the city and I fell in love! 

Having been a former smoker, I recognized the cigarette machine immediately and was so taken with this wonderful repurposing of something that once dispensed something so harmful to now providing joy and beauty! The fact that the piece of yours that I got was doubly meaningful as our daughter's middle name is "Love" (a family surname).  
Thank you for bringing joy and beauty to the world! - Tammy 



Remember to keep smiling (like Baby Nate)!

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!
