New artwork and poem: “Midnight Blue”

Now, normally I don’t post my poetry with my artwork, but this is the exception.

What most folks don’t know is that I write.  I love writing as much as art.  I have a bunch of stories and poems that I’ve written, however, I’ve been debating whether or not to feature it as well along with the artwork.

I wrote “midnight blue” about a month ago.  It’s an erotic, sensual prose.  I figured today was a great idea to create an art piece to coordinate with it.  Again, I used Illustrator and Photoshop to create this piece.  I absolutely love it.  I planned to put this on my FB artist’s page, but I didn’t want to chance someone reporting me and being banned from posting images.  I figured this is a more open-minded place to post this particular poem and artwork.

Here it is…

midnight blue

his strong, gorgeous body was bathed

in midnight blue mixed with

the illuminating glow of the full moon

his eyes shined brightly like a starry sky

his sensuality was such a surprise

to my eyes–

he captivated me with his masculinity

fantasies of my softness meeting his hardness

as the moon aglow high in the sky

gentle squeezes and sweet whispers

grinding hips and deep moans

songs of passionate bliss

filling the room

i sighed deeply

from my daydream

and allowed it

to burn my memory

as a fulfillment in my heart  ©bth2013

“Shine” series

I decided to create three more pieces of art to compliment Shine I.   What do you all think?  🙂

New Artwork: “Shine”


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.

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?


B & W Staredown- self-portrait

Hi everyone!  I’m back with another self-portrait.  Again…I wasn’t trying to look all pretty and perfect.  It was more or less, experimentation with Photoshop using black and white.


Digital Paintings: Electric Garden and Veiled Florals

A few days ago, I scratched the creative itch and decided to come up with a couple of digital paintings.  I kept experimenting with different textures, brushes, andbackgrounds in Photoshop.  These two were the outcome of my imagination.  I really love them and hope to create more soon.  A series possibly?  Hmmm…
