Jerome is one of the cutest cities I have been to. Nestled and stacked on the side of a mountain in Northern Arizona, it makes me feel that timeless real life magic that I like to pretend surrounds us everyday (if you block out fast food, walmart, and cash for gold stores..sick sprawl).

Anyway, Here's a little sketch I did of the city.

Happy Monday Everyone. 

Welcome...

If you are reading this, you have found my new website. I put on my travel boots and braved through Zone Files and DNS (what?!) Sections of the land of the unknown. I have no idea what any of it is, but alas - here we are together. 

I hope you like it, that it's easier to navigate, cleaner and more organized. If you have any crits or problems that I am not seeing, please let me know - as I don't dare pretend to be a web developer. I paint. And drink lots of coffee, that's what I do.

Thanksgiving is for family.

And this Thanksgiving, check out the new illustration in the fall issue of CraftSanity Magazine.

The illustration involves a small girl who takes a peek on a little Turkey family.

It also comes with an embroidery pattern, and this issue, yours truly created the embroidery. Jennifer, creator of the magazine, taught me how to emboider before I left Michigan, and I tried my skill at it and had a blast. You can see all three creations when the mag comes out soon. 

Coming up next: mural planning, new paintings , and a brand new...*gasp* website! Stay tuned...

Thursday Story Time

Here is the painting I finished this past week, finally got it scanned!

And a couple of details...

 

This week I also finished the illustration for the fall issue of CraftSanity, along with the embroidery pattern. Ill share that with you soon. 

Today I am reading a book on the artwork of Beatrix Potter, which is completely adorable. It makes me wish I lived in more romantic times - but people have always been saying that I'm sure. I choose to make my own romance. 

 

Happy Day of the Sun from the Valley of the Sun. 

Painting Finished Today!

Here's a sneak peek - going to get it scanned when it dries tonight!

This week - Illustration for fall issue of CraftSanity, another family commission, new studio mate, and vegan lasagna night by the fake fire on Friday. I really am thankful. 

 

I hope your Wednesday has a little piece of magic in it that continues to grow into a timeless fire.

Yesterday I was happy to find that Illustration Friday featured my work on the Illustration Friday Blog! If you're not familiar with the site, check it out. They do weekly prompts for illustrators and feature great and inspiring work everyday. 

Yay! The topic this week is 'Book' so I am going to try my hand at it. 

 

Also this week, I am working on a commission for the sweetest family. I plan on having it finished the beginning of this week, and after I have a finished scan (and after they see it) I will show it to you!

 

Happy Weekend!

I finished my GIRLS painting for the Light Grey Art Lab show coming up in November. The piece doesn't actually have to be done til this Friday - I can't believe I got something done this early. I was just so geeked to do it. This is a little detail of it but I'll show you the finished version soon!

And on to this week's commission. 

Happy Monday!

FRIDAY.

Posted on by Rebecca Green

Hello and Good morning.

Today I am finishing my piece for the upcoming GIRLS show at Light Grey Art Lab in Minneapolis. The show runs from November to Jan. Prints will be available for purchase through the gallery once the show opens..

I also JUST got boards delivered so I am starting three commissions today and next week. People and homes and animals and percolators. My favorite subjects!

 

 

It's official.

I'm addicted to coffee. 

But ALSO! I am an official Phoenix artist! Woop woop! The New Times is doing a '100 Creatives' countdown to the 'Best of Phoenix' and I was asked to be one of those 100. Pretty cool huh. 

Check it out here!

And thank you to Terry Johnston - who is a mad photograph maker who took my picture.

Prints on a Tuesday.

Today is maybe the best day. Yes. It is the best day. 

I finished this print yesterday and started a new one last night. There will be three in the series and will available for purchase soon!

 

Tonight I am going to see Fiona Apple in concert at the Mesa Center for the Arts. I have loved this woman since highschool, and her new album is so good. *sigh*

And I got a fake fireplace insert for my fireplace, so I am sitting working, drinking coffee, cuddled by a fire. Outside my window is a drought resistant plant and a palm tree, and it'll be around 100 today.

Good life. Fast Life.

AHHHHH I can't keep these a secret!

These will be 12x16" archival prints. Price is yet to be determined but I will have more information for you soon! I have to get working on the second print, as it's just about finished. There will be three in the series. Special thanks to my cat Junie for being such a hot model.

PRINTS on a thursday.

So. I have had some inquiries about prints since...I started making art full time, and maybe before. It's been a long time coming. I usually sell orginals but the thought of selling a nice reproduction has always sounded incredible. So this week, with all of my commercial projects finished for the time being, I decided to start that print series that I have been thinking about. 

I have the first one just about done and am sending it in for proofs soon. Keep an eye out for the finished series soon! I will have them for sale via Etsy, and through my website. I'll also be doing an email blast - is that what people call it? - Anyway, let me know if you want to be on my email list and you will be notified when these babies are off the press. 

And I will say HOT OFF THE PRESS. So look out. 

Alright. Here is a little detail that I came across when I was zoomed in that I thought was nice. the actual size is like, an inch, but you can see the paint strokes really well.

I am in a good mood today, so who knows...maybe I will share with you the whole thing in a bit!

(I am pretty much always in a good mood so you can bet I will share it with you)
