This painting was inspired by a dream I had about a "fairy village".  The fairies lived in a tiny village in a forest under mushrooms, which served as their homes.  I don't particularly believe in fairies, nor do I consider myself a fan of fairy stories, but my dream was what I would consider charming and endearing, so I wanted to paint a painting to acknowledge the experience.  The painting represents an abstract view of the fairies under a mushroom.  The fairies are represented by the blue.  The original acrylic painting is on a 16" x 20" canvas.



I really like this pattern a lot.  This would make a great robe.  Other applications could be a tablecloth with matching napkins, shower curtain, bed linens, wall paper, designer pillows, computer bag, scarf, necktie, and so much more.

I painted several paintings that were inspired by balls of fire.  I'm not sure exactly what the inspiration came from, but part of the influence was cosmic happenings-- think meteor showers.  This original painting is on a wood panel that is approximately 25" x 47".  I think this painting is a little bit silly, but I really, really like the pattern that is created by this piece of artwork.



If this pattern were to be reproduced exactly as it is above, I think it would make a fantastic shower curtain.  Or how about a  picnic blanket with matching napkins?  Some other possibilities are a table runner, placemats, napkins, bed linens, window curtains, upholstery for chair cushions, decorator pillows, and maybe even wallpaper. So many possibilities.

'The Coppersmith'

This was meant to represent a coppersmith's glove.  The original painting was painted with copper paint which mostly appears as red in the translation to digital form.  But it still looks nice, in my opinion.


The Coppersmith2.

I realize that this pattern has a spider-like appearance, as I have been told many times, but I think it would make very bold bed linens, especially if it was done with a silk/cotton blend.  This pattern would also make an absolutely fabulous shower curtain.  Other applications could be upholstery, wallpaper, scarves, tablet computer cover, and much more.

'Drowning Man in a Calm Sea'

This painting came about because of the economic downturn our society has experienced since 2008.  Many people in America have gone through a life change, not by choice, but by necessity. While this painting portrays a "man", this is really about mankind --both male and female, as many have struggled to make ends meet, or just survive. I hope that life gets better soon. Many people are dispirited and disenchanted.


This pattern has a slight elegance to it.  This would make nice bed linens, or a shower curtain.  Like most of my EmpirePatterns, the uses for this patterns are almost limitless.
