Close Up

Ooooooooo these designs turned out BEEEA-U-TI-FUL

I though everyone would like a close up of some of my newer prints!  They are printed on thick, textured Art Paper and shipped direct to your home. They have white space around them in case you want to get them framed, or you can adhere them to foam core and use command strips to hang them on your wall! Easy-peasy.

I post home decor ideas on my Twitter and Facebook if you need ideas, or just want to stay up to date with what I am creating.

Canadian Explorer Wild Roots Art

Redbubble just impresses me more and more.

I upload all my digital illustrations and designs onto Redbubble where you can get them printed on art paper, artboard, acrylic blocks or stickers.

This is one of my newer prints, Canadian Explorer.

Arrival of the Art Print
Woopwoop! Unrolled, the print is 400mmX300mm (16×12) Lookin’ good!
A close up
Lightly textured 100% cotton paper – nice and thick. Plus lots of white space for you to go get it framed up.

 

Once you get your Art Print, you can get it professionally framed, get a frame yourself, or even glue it to foam core and prop it up (see below)

Holy smokes, I have been up to a lot lately.

I have been having a blast making cool designs out of vintage images and turning them into t-shirts or home decor.  In the few hours that my Baby naps, I work on these designs, or some of my writing (more below on that).

 

Redbubble has all the designs and illustrations.

Threadless has all my clothing

And I still have all my Landscape and Lifestyle Photography over at Society6.  This store has so much fabulous home decor items, like pillows, totes, blanket’s, rugs and clocks.


My writing is slowly, slowly improving, and I have been making a writing/art project.  It is a newspaper based in a fantastical, magical world that is hidden from normal, non-magical humans.  The paper is called The Cunning Crow, and it reports from the city of Umbra, a hidden place in the hills South West of Kamloops, British Columbia.

Issue 1 reports on The Death March Migration, Mountain Giants and how to keep Running Roses from terrorizing the neighbors yards.

Issue 2 reports on the Shadow People attacks, and interviews Hades and Calliope on their new business venture.

All the ads are created by me, and I include explanations that really help people understand the world.

I have also been writing a thriller/murder mystery. Its still developing, but I have been really enjoying fleshing this story out.

It’s about an 18 yr old who is trying to start her life again after her parents death, but finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery in the new city she moved too. I’m wanting to make the city Kamloops, but a made up Kamloops that is a massive city instead. We’ll see.

I joined the Camp NanoWriMo, which is a great source if you need encouragement, reminders and a fun way of tracking your writing numbers.  Make sure to donate to them because they do a lot of work for kids, schools etc, and NanoWriMo in November is amazing, and you can meet so many wonderful authors this way.

Anyway! Hope your days have been wonderful and productive this summer too!! thank you for stopping by and/or reading my work!!

Cheers~ Trish

Creation

Posted on

I don’t just take pictures, I do a lot of digital art, too.  Its typically nature themed, but they are rather different, odd, vintage and colourful.  Most of them have little backstories, or are inspired by a piece of music or podcast, show or just life. (I wrote a post on some of what I listen to here)

IMG_20170406_073239_008I made the above artwork while listening to The Message/LifeAfter. It was rainy, gloomy and cold outside, and I did the old check-over-the-shoulder-at-unknown-noise thing a couple of times LOL! Anyway, back to the art. I had watched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade a couple days ago, so I got to thinking that I should do something with a cup. NOT The Grail, but still a cup of power, a cup of offerings, libation. Then, the snake, culturally a symbol of birth, rebirth, and creation tales.  I got to really thinking that this was creativity, being born again and again from our own psyche, our own powers, pieces of us.  Some deep shit right there. LOL. I love symbolism.

But, really, most things are created this way, from things we see, hear, and, well, from within, or a Muse. Muse, another recent obsession of mine. Anyway, I hope you enjoy these pieces. And I hope your creativity finds no end, like the never-ending snake, re-making itself again and again.

The Muses

Posted on

IMG_20170331_060650_719Lately, I have been trying to find information on the The Muses, the Greek Gods of the Arts. There is surprisingly very little out there, even though it has been the artists crutch/inspiration for hundreds of years. I research a lot behind the scenes for my books and art pieces, and this one quickly becoming a time consuming conquest. The reason I set off down this road was because I have never created so much art as I have with Roland. Starting in the last half of my pregnancy I have started or finished 40 different artworks (short stories, book projects, photos, digital art) and I thought hmmm Ro is my Muse! Then I thought I should write or make an art piece on the Muse….and here I am, reading a dissertation from 1993, which may be the best info I have found yet lol!! Anyway, if anyone out there knows a good book on muses, even a fiction/fantasy let me know!
