Right There in Black and White


And now for something completely different...

I don't know...just felt like working outside my signature color palette. I think it's really important to shake it up a little once in awhile and surprise even yourself. I don't do much work in a black and cream theme...none really...and I hardly ever work in a horizontal format when working with a vertical image...never really.


I challenge you to do something that is really, really different from anything you've ever done before. Get kinky with your art form. It's ok. You're married to it. You'll look at yourself differently too, when all is said and done. And your work will thank you.


Say thank you, Frida.

These will be put up on the Lipstick Ranch site for sale in a couple of days...They are 16x20-ish and will be $200 each. Let me know if you gotta have one before it goes up on LR.

wow - these are so lavish and rich looking. The black and white, with just a hint of sepia is so elegant. I love these ... and the tiara babe is fab!

Beautiful work! The Queen is my delicious. Do you ever have polls? If so I would be hard pressed to see which piece you make as my favorite. All of them are such quality work. Tks for your encouragement!
