Almost done!

Creating a second piece to go with "Boldly Go."

Feel close to being done and also a bit stuck. I may have to put this one aside until after the holidays!

"Boldly Go" and "Final Frontier"

It's so difficult to get the color right in these photos! Next clear day I'll have to try to photograph them outside in the natural light. 
I still have a few things to do to "Final Frontier"

Acrylic on Canvas
Two - 18" X 24"

Happy Holidays to all!

Work in Progress - 16" X 16" to add to Birds on a Wire Series by Dana Marie

I'm working my way up to larger canvas sizes since I took a long hiatus from painting everyday.

So, even though this is only a 16" X 16" this is the largest piece of the series, Birds on a Wire.

For those of you that have missed it here is the series thus far:

I wanted some variety, yet still look beautiful together. 

I have linked the photos above to my FB page: Dana Marie Art 

You may also find me on Instagram:  danamariearts 

Enjoy your weekend!  I sure will! 


Still working on it.

November Works in Progress by Dana Marie (danamarieart)

This is a 24" X 24" piece that is close to being finished.  There is just a few things I'd like to change before calling it "done."  

This is a 10" X 10" and it too is really closed to being done.  I wish I would had created this piece on a 24" X 24" or larger....perhaps next time.  

Well, that's a few of the pieces I am working on.

Have a wonderful day!

Blue and Black Checker Tree ~ Wearable Art by Dana Marie

                                                     Blue and Black Checker Tree

Wearable Art by Dana Marie

We recently moved and I have yet to locate my gunmetal chain necklaces that I usually use with the antiqued silver I used the black ribbon necklace instead. I like it with the black ribbon, but I will be searching through boxes later today to locate the gunmetal one.

I found the irregular lines and coloration more interesting than if I had created clean lines.  It was difficult to leave as I am forever cleaning up lines, but I really like this one on.  I feel like if I sat under that tree I might see the white rabbit.  

I have a few paintings I'm finishing up that I will be posting soon!
