New abstract digital painting: “Alone”

alone


New artwork: Abstract Painting- Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and Abstract Icon- Bob Marley

Hello all!  I wanted to share two new pieces of art that I’ve created recently.  It’s ironic that both pieces are inspired by music, which I love.

Abstract painting inspired by Hypnotic Brass Ensemble

Abstract painting inspired by Hypnotic Brass Ensemble

This abstract painting was inspired by a group that I heard a few years ago and fell in love with their music.  Hypnotic Brass Ensemble is comprised of a group of brothers from Chicago who play horn.  Their father is jazz artist Phil Cohran.  Their music is infectious, lively, and soulful to the ears.  Even my soon to be 3 year-old was dancing to their music.   When I listened to their music before I began painting, I closed my eyes and envisioned flashes of color with every note.  That’s how I came up with the artwork.  Make sure to peep and listen to the video I’ve embedded so you all will get an idea why I love this group so much.

Abstract Icon- Bob Marley

Abstract Icon- Bob Marley

I wanted to do an abstract of Bob Marley for sometime now.  I looked at a few images of him as a reference before I began creating this in Illustrator.  I put a great deal of detail into this to show the passion of him singing.  I wished I debuted this on what would have been is 68th birthday the 6th of this month, however, life got in the way.   Overall, I love the outcome and colors.

 

What do you think of the artwork?  Which one do you like out of the two?  Comment below!  


New artwork: Hauntingly Beautiful, Immersed, Hot Vinyl, and SoulFlower

I have been busy creating new works of art in the last few weeks.  Again, this incredible surge of creativity washed over me and I couldn’t help but to put it into great use.  Here they are!

hauntinglybeautiful“Hauntingly Beautiful” is one of those images that I created thinking I wanted to put a flower in the mix, however, it turned out really stunning on its own with the combination of the woods, gradients, and textures.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Immersed” came to me from looking at water.  I found the colors really beautiful here.  It almost looks like fabric. Immersed

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

hot_vinyl“Hot Vinyl” was really fun to create.  I loved making the records and how they have their own “personality” with the labels.  This is a tribute to old school soul and hip hop music.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

soulflowerAnd lastly, “SoulFlower” rounds out the group of new artwork.  I was inspired by a person who bloomed from their tribulations in life, only to shine like the sun when they smiled.  The colors represent their happiness and positivity they have with life.

New Digital Art: Carry On

Woo hoo!  My 30th post!  🙂

I debuted new artwork on my Soulfully Yours Art Design page on FB.  “Carry On” came to me as I finished it.  I used different paint brushes, blend modes, and textures to create this abstract  Despite what you may have gone through in life, hold your head high and carry on.

Digital Painting: Aura of Betel Leaves

My newest piece for the digital painting series.  I really wanted something blue and a bit surreal.  The leaves created a perfect center with the dashes of light, swirls, and a brush that resembled grass for added texture.  What do you think?

 

 


Digital Painting: Sunburst

Sorry…I’ve been super busy lately.  However, I wanted to share my newest creation…Sunburst.  The inspiration behind it were the words “bright” and “beautiful”.  Image
