A Mommy's Love

It all started with a vision that came to me early early in the morning. Thats when I did a rough sketch but once I had the vision down I cleaned up the sketch to make the vision clear and exact.

I then had to make a decision as to what medium I wanted to paint this piece on. I knew my last piece was done on wood and I realized then how much I enjoyed working on wood. So I decided that I wanted to do this piece on wood as well. Then the dilemma of the size was the next issue I couldn't determine whether to go with the same as I had done before or larger. 
I had been recently dreaming about creating detailed pieces that are inspired by Gustav Klimt and other great masters from the past. I dreamed so much about it that I even went got a few hard back colorful vivid books showcasing art in Neo Classical, Art Nouveau, Renaissance, Surrealism styles and genres.
I myself tend to gravitate towards a hodge podge of surrealism, art nouveau with a lowbrow twist if you will lol. Any way if you follow you have seen progress pics on this piece. So without further ado....

A new home

Hi guys this week has been a really weird week. I have had the worse case of attention deficit disorder. I know its this computer its wrecking my brain. I constantly feel like if I shake my head it will erase things and clear it up. However it doesn't work lol.

Anyway I have decided to move TheRichAnt.com has moved to her own eCommerce place. A place where everything is housed under one roof and one very inexpensive monthly expense. I put my Etsy shop on vacation mode until I decided exactly how I want to handle that. But between Etsy,Big Cartel, Blogger, Facebook Fan page, paypal, ebay and Go daddy. It all gets so crazy! Not to mention all the fees. I have already shut down my artfire shop.

For now I will continue to keep my blogger.I am still on the fence on whether to just link my blogger page or start a new blog from scratch. But I love my blogger page. 

Anyway here it is! I hope you like! I made it all by myself.....YAY!

A little of whats inside my head

*Scroll down to the bottom to mute playlist but in this case the music is a nice touch*

A work in progress of a piece titled 'Some ME Time'. With a voice over talking a bit about my art. This is just showing the start of what is generally called an under painting.

A Short film share

 I was more then impressed... actually some what blown away by the delightful and charming details to the characters that will haunt viewers. My heart was sadden as I could relate to her demented fears. The films bitter sweet disturbing story has magnificent talent. This was the most amazing example of stop motion I have ever seen. The realistic motions of each character was perfect and flawless, especially Madame Tutli Putli. Her wonderful movements were actually in so much sync with the real world, I thought I was watching an actual real time movie. The small fidgets a person makes to the eyes which held all emotions of how she felt. Fear, happiness, sadness, and wonder. Excellent example of an animation character.
