New Artwork: “Beauty of Africa”

Last week, I was on SoundCloud listening to Ghanaian music.  Upbeat, infectious…it put a huge smile on my face.  That led me to create this piece called, “Beauty of Africa”.  Image

I love the deep richness of the tones and textures here.  I’m thinking that maybe I should create a series based on this.

What do you all think?


New Digital Art: Headwrap Goddess

Terrible.  Yes, I’ve been terrible.  I haven’t blogged in over two months!!!  *shaking head*

Well, I have an explanation.  I’ve been sooooo bogged down with my graphic design classes at school and my older son’s t-ball practice and games.  Yes, I’m now officially a t-ball mom.  🙂

Now…back to art.  I have been creating a few things.  I’ve done another digital abstract painting, a nude abstract, and this latest one called “Headwrap Goddess”.

I used Illustrator to create my goddess, adding gradients and texture.  The mud cloth print for her dress I created as well.  The background is all Photoshop using a few images with several blend modes.  I even added my signature on the bottom right-hand side, which looks way more personal and interesting than typing my name and copyright.

The concept behind the art is to have her surrounded by different elements with her striking beauty:  water, sun, wind, and earth.

I really love the outcome.  What do you think?
