View Full Version : Americana Series...

08-05-2013, 08:28 AM
Most of you have seen my Music Series, but I am also working on a smaller series of 5in x 7in Americana themed pieces.... Hopefully will do one a day as they are not very time demanding. Thanks to Jim for his project a few months back :).

OK, it's the 5th so I need to make two today :).

The first is Shopping, followed by TV, and then Coffee. All are 5x7 and done with various mediums. Shopping is all ink save for the gray. TV and Coffee are ink with copic markers.

This is a fun project and my goal is to have 30 of them and to display all on a large wall. Should be engaging. I've been including the framed examples to give you all an idea of how I picture the end result.

Cory..These are so good, and so is your enthusiasm! Really like the shopping bags! I read it wrong at first and thought you was off shopping and then going to watch the tv, followed by coffee :lol: (just having my coffee now and waking up!)

Looking good Cory, there is charm and something enchanting about these little pieces. And what art lover can resist cool art at affordable prices! These will be a worthwhile expansion of your art inventory.

Thanks Katie, Dave, and Jim :)

Katie-- I'm not a big shopper, haha :)

Dave-- Yes, I hope these will sell as they are at a very affordable price point, but still original art. Then again, I wonder how it would look all together on a wall? That sure would be pretty darn cool.

Jim-- Yes, pushing myself to do a month of paintings. Currently two behind :(.

Great idea!

You might consider 'arranging' them on the computer prior to putting them on the wall, as I suspect these might form an interesting pattern from afar.

always fun to see your work

Thanks so much for commenting, Greggo. Yeah, I have been pinning them to my wall right now. Kinda cool :)

I've been busy...

As Dave said, these have a nice whimsy feel. Been keeping them simple in design and using a mixture of acrylics, ink, and markers.
