Mixed media painting with lettering

When you change the way you look at things The Things you look at change.

This is a mixed media painting I did a few years ago for myself.  I sold it within a month of showing it.  I enjoy creating art and incorporating calligraphy into it.  All my work has words somewhere on it...hence, The Word is ART, my logo.

A Place to Bark

 Original mixed media art

A page I created to be added to a book that I also created as a fund raiser a few years ago for Bernie Berlin's, A Place to Bark.  I invited 26 other artists to participate and was happily rewarded with all yes'. The book had a 6" spine holding 30 pages of original art including a title page, artist page and colophon in calligraphy.  The book went to auction on ebay and sold for over $1,000.  A worthy cause and place indeed.

Anniversary Love Letter in Calligraphy

Happy Anniversary Letter in Calligraphy

My client wrote a love letter to his wife for their anniversary.  It was a beautiful and endearing letter and I was thrilled to create this gift of love for him.

Personalizing a Ukulele

Calligraphy on a Ukulele

This was definitely challenging to have to write on an instrument, especially on the arch and the slick surface.  This had to be permanent and carefully evenly written.  My client was pleased with the results.
