It’s been awhile but I’m back, and I have so many things to say!! I love LOVE hanging my new paintings on the walls in my studio. I really enjoy seeing them together as a group. So I was really excited when I participated in the Autumn Arts Festival last month and a couple wanted to buy two of my paintings. The woman was unsure as to which ones, and went round and round, trying to find 2 that she liked together. I had a secret stash of paintings in the back (new ones that I was keeping for my current show at Animas Chocolate & Coffee Co., but would sell if needed). My husband grabbed the one on the right “Kansas Intensity” and suggested it to go with the one on the left “Heaven’s Rays”. SOLD! It’s very subtle, but I love the way that the bold, intense orange yellow in the Kansas field is picked up in the grass on the mountainside in Colorado. And while the originals have sold, prints are always available for purchase. Both of these can be found in the Sky Part Two note cards set (so I guess that subconsciously I knew that they went together all along!)

Yes, one of my newest projects is creating e-books for Growing Spaces, LLC. We’ve designed two already and I think there will be more on the way. They’re pretty informative, and I find myself learning a lot about growing and planting my own food (I’m intrigued!) Sign up to receive them for free here, and be sure to share them with friends!!
Yes I’ve finally gotten around to updating my store and adding more items, including 2015 calendars! All of the artwork listed is one of a kind, so please don’t add more than one to the shopping cart (apparently they don’t have an option where I can fix that – ugh!) I’ll add more art as I can – need to get rid of this giant inventory so I can make new things! Here’s the link (think Christmas, birthdays, etc!!): http://www.duckgirlart.com/Store.html
Also, if you’re a Pinterest kind of person, I uploaded a ton of artwork there as well. http://www.pinterest.com/duckgirlart/duck-girl-art-paintings/ Start pinning!!
I’ve been dabbling in watercolors and ink and pastels – oh my! Having lots of fun experimenting, but also gearing up for the 5th Annual Super Amazing Art Show and Sale! (August 23, 3-8pm at 537 Jackrabbit Trail, Durango, CO 81303) Here are a few that I painted yesterday (crazy busy day!!) To view all of my recent paintings, visit my website http://www.duckgirlart.com/painting.html.
If you live in the Four Corners Region, you’re probably starting to ask yourself, “who are those cute boys?!” Well to answer your question, they’re my nephews Jaxon and Easton. I started designing for the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad a few months ago, and in a sample ad that I created, I used one of my pictures of the boys from when they were here and road the train (2009 I believe!). When I started to create the real ads, I was asked to use the picture “of those cute boys”. So now, they’re slowly being plastered in every guide book and magazine around. My famous nephews!
Sometimes I have really random but really fun requests. This poster request had me laughing…it’s a bit of a stretch, but it’s teaching people that if you use condoms, you’re helping to save the planet (by having less children. Seeing as how we have none, we realized we’re SUPER green!). Don’t believe me? Read for yourself at EndangeredSpeciesCondoms.com. (original artwork and packaging design by Roger Peet and Lori Lieber)
I finally broke out the paints again! Inspired by a project for the William & Joseph Gallery, I’ve been painting butterflies. The gallery is sponsoring an auction to benefit a local women’s shelter, and asked that the artists decorate or make serving trays. I found a battered one at the local thrift store, and after much love transformed (ha ha!) it into a lovely butterfly serving tray. This spawned other ideas for butterflies, so I also painted “Butterfly Dreams” and “Time for a Snack”. All 3 paintings are en route to the gallery this week, courtesy of the lovely Miki Harder. (if you’re interested in purchasing any, please contact the William & Joseph Gallery in Santa Fe).
