Quintet in Color (watercolor on claybord 14 x 18") SOLD

Recently I’ve been doing some graphic art to sell on Zazzle a print on demand site that sells mugs, ties, business cards, phone cases, coasters, T-shirts and a variety of other useful things.  My particular corner of Zazzle, is called Paintbox Silhouette.  There I sell images like these on a variety of products:

Goose Pile



Color-washed Rooster

Golden Trumpets

Earth Apple

This work is a combination of silhouettes I drew with the mouse in Photoshop Elements and watercolor backgrounds  photographed and manipulated with Photoshop.  This kind of computer drawing and collage is  incredibly fun to do.  But, while fun, comparing this kind of work to making paintings is like comparing candy to a full meal.  It’s quick and fun, but doesn’t lead to the same ultimate satisfaction.  However I did learn some valuable skills, including how to do my value sketches with the mouse.

Lollypop Violins and Violas

More importantly, one kind of art inspires another.   The image for mugs above, is my inspiration for this latest painting.

This painting has sold, but you may still purchase a print at my print shop.
