Been working on more space nebula paintings.

This one is now available in my Zibbet store. Don’t know about Zibbet — well, it’s like Etsy and has lots of amazing items. Check it out.

Item: Marble Stone of Magical Measurement

May 29, 2018

Greetings and salutations. Dawn Blair here, your multi-dimensional, time-traveling tour guide. Come with me. I have a great adventure planned today. You see, Ithanes whispered in my ear and told me that I should sneak into Keteria’s workroom and take a look in her cabinets, much like Keteria and Steigan once sneaked into Ithanes’ room. I personally think he just wanted a little revenge, but I kept my mouth shut on that one. Besides, little does he know that someday I want to have a look at all the curios and bobbles he has in his cabinet. Someday…

But for now, I really want to look at that little marble that Keteria placed into Steigan’s hand. Let’s go see if we can find it.

Shh… quiet now. I really don’t want Danis to come inspect what we’re doing. Just a little further. Read the rest of this entry »


Expanded creativity

May 15, 2018

I haven’t shown any of my paintings for a while. Mostly because I haven’t painted in a couple months.

However, recently I had a friend purchase some of my artwork and I’m fortunate enough to see how she used her own creativity to expand upon what I had done.

Sally had this extra frame she’d purchase, but she hadn’t known just quite what to do with it until she saw one of my blogs on my artwork. She asked me to show her what paintings I had for sale. Happily, I brought in my box for her to dig through.

She picked two which really spoke to her (as is a great way to pick art — gee, imagine that: you buy art that you want to look at. Simple. *grin*).

Here’s how she put it all together:

“I like hidden things,” Sally told me. “I like things that make you think.” She said that my paintings reminded her of The Secret Garden and that she wanted to know what was behind the doorway. In her mind, it goes to a place hidden away where the swing is.

Listening to her talk about it reminds me why I like to paint: I get to create my secret place, my hide-away. Writing gives me a place where I can have people dealing with strife. But painting is where I am completely alone in my own little mental exploration. I’m never alone on my writing adventures, but I am when I’m painting.

It’s great to see something that I created be part of a larger piece of someone else’s creativity like this.

Thank you, Sally, for letting me share!


Nature Observing

March 26, 2014

One day while having lunch, I noticed one of my blueberries was a little more purplish red than blue. As I looked at it closer, I noticed that where the stem once connected it to the plant, it looked like a little flower. I (of course) had to check out my other blueberries and sure enough, little flowers on top. Here, have a look:

I know that if you cut an apple through the center horizontally the seeds will make a star. Do you think nature is trying to tell us something sending us hidden flowers and stars like this?

And yes, I have a thing about photographing food (some people who know me think it’s weird. Whatever!).
