Blue Flowers Everywhere! Abstract Paintings

Here are a couple flower inspired ACEO abstract paintings I made a little while back. The first is a gouache painting, and the second is oil pastel.



As always, you can find my artwork for sale on my Ebay store.


Abstract Paintings Inspired by Toys

The following two abstract gouache paintings were inspired by toys of all things. This first one was inspired by a random grouping of McDonald’s Shopkins toys (sort of like a toy still life painting):


And this second painting was inspired by a Gingerbread-themed rubber ducky I won from a claw machine at the arcade:


Both of these paintings and other artworks are currently available at my Ebay store!

Whales in My Artwork


I’ve done several abstract whale-themed artworks over the years because I simply love whales! Especially killer whales! I like the way this gouache ACEO painting turned out. At first I wasn’t thrilled with the almost translucent quality of the blue over the red, but over time I’ve grown to actually like the effect. This piece already sold and has found a good home, but I still wanted to share it 🙂 Hope you all have a whale of a day!

Mystery Abstract Painting Guessing Game

I painted this gouache painting a little while back and several people have taken guesses at what the subject of the painting is, but none of them have been right. Can you guess what inspired it? Feel free to leave a comment below and take a shot at it! I’ll reveal the correct answer in the comments when someone guesses right!


Turtle in a Half Shell Gouache Abstract Painting


I affectionately call this abstract ACEO painting “Turtle in a Half Shell”. Now how many of you have the TMNT theme song stuck in your head? You’re welcome 🙂

New Art Trading Card Paintings

This first new gouache painting I think looks kind of like souls trying to escape or something:


This next painting was inspired by the “pizza painting” technique from the book “Drawing Calm” by Susan Evenson:


Another painting inspired by “Drawing Calm”, an abstract version of their “Little Houses” prompt:

Art by Maranda Russell

And lastly, this painting was inspired by the sea and a collage I saw of paper strips representing the ocean:


All of these mini paintings are currently up for auction at my Ebay store!
