My heart's return. IF - Clean

9 X 14, on wood

finally, back in the studio, a clean start, in our new city, new apt. and it feels good. my heart's return.

if you're interested, you can purchase this piece here.
...sold...

i was chased by a lunatic last nite up the steps to our apt building. i was frantically pushing the door shut while he was pushing it open. he didn't seem to care that i had a dog with me. i called the police. they couldn't find him. "welcome to oakland" is what everyone is saying. "oh my god" is what i'm saying.

I really like your illo. It's my first of three faves for the topic. I like the colors and layering. But my fav. part is the bird on her head.

Teresa said...

Great artwork! I am so sorry that you were chased--how very scary--well at least for me it would be. Way to be brave!

Just lovely.
Carrying a bird on your head is sure to dissuade any (other) lunatics.

This is such a beautiful piece! I love the subtle textures and color mixes that are going on...very, very nice! I just took a few minutes to read your last couple of posts. First of all - your apartment looks fabulous! Wow! It sounds like you've gone through some really big changes! It's always hard to move into such a different environment, especially when you go from a place that you loved to another place that's so "in your face." It's good that you're making a point of getting into the lifestyle in your new home...SF is such a awesome city. I'm guessing in just a few months, you'll be feeling even better about things.

Is your story for real? If so I'm so sorry you had to endure that. Hope you don't have to again. Really nice piece. :-)

Whatsername said...

I want to buy your art, Kelly!! I am so glad you started a website. I am so proud of you and impressed by your determination. I am worried about the crazy man...I hope this was just a fluke. I don't know how to help. But that should NOT happen.

Naru said...

I like your color palette. very sweet.

Carolyn said...

I adore your artwork... and I love your apartment!!! Good luck in your new city (hubby and I recently moved, though not quite as a drastic one as yours.)

I look forward to visiting you here and on flickr!
