David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust art

I was kind of a weird kid growing up.

Shocking, I know.


Because here’s the thing, when you’re raised in a household where the only music that you’re allowed to listen to is Gospel music and if you’re lucky Elvis singing Gospel music and then you’re grandma starts watching you after school and she lets you watch MTV to your little musically depraved heart’s content…well,stuff happens.

When I was a kid MTV still played music videos but those hours that I was at my grandma’s house they were playing older music videos. Because of this I developed a lifelong love affair with Pat Benatar and David Bowie. (Thank you Grandma Maria.

David Bowie was actually my first big crush. (I’ve said this a lot of times in a lot of places. There’s really no reason for me to keep saying it…it’s just that it annoys the heck out of my husband for some reason and that makes me giggle.)


I’ve made a Ziggy Stardust ACEO and it’s currently listed on ebay right now for the Nibblefest Auction contest. It’s a very cool thing where lots of talented phenomenal artists list their artwork in seven day listings starting at the price of  .99 ,whoever’s piece ends on the highest price wins the contest. They graciously let me play along.:)

This month’s theme was the third letter of your name and as mine is D my mind automatically went to David. (You should definitely check out all of the awesome listings!)

You can find David here and there’s a link on my listing that will take to to the other artwork that was created this month.

P.S- I have not been posting 30 paintings 30 days as I should be doing but this one counts towards that,okay?


Caterina,woman,cat morphed painting

I’ve been enjoying everyone’s work immensely as I go along. And getting inspired too! If you noticed my clown lady from an earlier post then you might have remembered the Smile art journal page that I made for day 12. That is because when I made that cartoon character based Nicci’s design I really wanted to play around with making a more realistic clown right after.

I spotted some fabulous animal morphed humans on Minerva Levinston’s blog and felt inspired to make an animal morphed human face too.

I painted this:

I like her and may do more in the future.This was a really,really fun one to do!
She is on 9 x 12 watercolor paper ,painted with acrylics and water colors.
I’m also thinking on what I’ll be creating for an art show,Women painting Women and for a Facebook art collective auction called Twisted Ruby Red Slippers Artist Collective where myself and loads of fantastic artists will have artwork up for auction towards the end of October. I’m really hoping I can create something good,wish me luck!
