A lattice of overlapping circles in red, on a pale sky blue. This is one of those patterns that can be repeated into infinity, and gets used a lot in my larger work. Speaking of, if you haven't checked out my dress painting blog out lately, take a look... www.dresspaintings.blogspot.com

Gals on green! A very soft grey print over a washy brilliant lime green background. Just a little bit of punch for your wall. That's it until Monday! And remember, by Monday morning all these little babies will be marked sold and put into the big box of inventory heading off to shows. Des Moines, and Denver, here I come!

A scribble. Scribbled, refined, traced, and transferred in mirror image to linoleum. Further refined, and carved. Inked, printed, and collaged. Just a scribble, in warm coppery brown on grey, with a hint of inky blue lines from the pattern tissue. Have a great day.

A new chatterbox is in the works, and this (elle)ement shows off a little fragment of what she will have going on. And just so you know, I have two big shows coming up quickly on the horizon. The Des Moines Art Festival, in Des Moines, Iowa, and the Cherry Creek Festival in Denver, CO. As of a week from today (June 24) all unsold (elle)ements on this blog will be marked sold and packed up into show inventory. All new additions to this blog after the 24th will be available as usual. So if you've had your eye on a piece, this would be a good time to move on it. $25 each? You can do that.

The repeating pattern this morning is printed in peach, on a ruby red background. Printed on a piece of pattern tissue for an apron. I don't come across apron patterns very often, so don't dawdle if you want this one, it would be tough to recreate, or even get close. Enjoy! I have a busy day, time to get on it!

It's a newer, bigger target. And if you see that word capitalized, like the store, try not to. I'm still cranky that the store has managed to take such an awesome graphic and claim it so entirely. The red is a vibrating coral, the target has a hint of blue. Just enough blue to get some tension from the complementary color aspect working. That's a lot of extra color theory talk for one morning.
And it looks every bit as good hanging sideways, or upside down. Strong pieces like this are what direct the eye in a composition, work it.

We'll just call this one two for now, it's not it's actual number, that will be 700 and change. Have you noticed how big the numbers are getting around here? By the end of the weekend I will be numbering (elle)ements up in the 800's. And they all started with the first one, #1. That's a lot of 4" square canvases rolling around in the world. Not like the number of Thomas Kinkaide reproductions, but still...
So, Two is printed in a creamy yellow on a Simplicity dress pattern, the background is sort of a soft pumpkin. And it, like all the others on the blog is $25. There are some great collections being built out there folks, feel free to join in at any time!

I haven't put up many patterns lately. Patterns play well together, or make a nice break if you have a lot of (elle)ements of "things". This one is also the perfect anchor to a group if you put it at the bottom left corner. I think we could call this asparagus green, on a neutral, almost yellow background. Back to the studio for me!
