I came across a Crayola marker set at CVS that I used to create the below artworks. I really like the way these markers give a painting-like feel to the pictures and how the markers show a variety of shades when used. The kit only came with 5 markers (brown, orange, white, green, and pink), but I was able to make the pictures look almost life-like with them.

I just sold this oil pastel painting the other day, but thought I would share because it is one of my favorite recent artworks I have made. I like the earthy, a little bit dark atmosphere, and the figures in line. If I remember right, this was inspired by an old, vintage photo of men waiting in a line to go to their factory job.

These 3 abstract acrylic paintings were actually made many years ago. I came across them not too long ago and decided to put them up for sale with my other art on my Ebay store. I was pleasantly surprised when they sold rather quickly. I do think I’ve come a long way as an artist in some ways, but it is nice to know even my earliest attempts at serious art appeal to others 🙂
Here are a few recent oil pastel abstract paintings! I hope you like them! Let me know in the comments which is your favorite!

Last night I went to a candle magic painting class. It was a lot of fun, but harder than it looks! The “magic” part of it is that we used some runes/esoteric symbols for inspiration. Here is how my rune/symbolic candle turned out:
I took some liberty with the symbols and even created a couple of my own. I wanted my candle to have a bit of an Egyptian feel, which I think the black scythe and the black and gold detail does give a bit of that impression.
We also painted a tealight candle, and while mine started out as a symbol for Hades, the candle was NOT easy to paint on and it kind of turned into an abstract expressionistic painting, but I still like it:
It looks a little like a tormented soul in Hades to me, so that works I suppose ♥
Sometimes when making art, I feel the primary color rainbow shouting my name and have to indulge in a burst of brightness! Here are a couple recent colorful creations…

Oil pastel is one of my favorite mediums to work with. It is so simple, ready to go without any prep, creates rich colors, and brings back that childhood magic of crayons. The only bad things about it? It can smear easily and leaves lots of little shavings behind.
