You can read about it here and I hope to see your face at the reception! Geez I’m very excited. This is a pretty big opportunity for me, so yeah, I’m excited, nervous, making work like crazy, and all of that. Honestly it’s kind of overwhelming but in a good way, like in a way that makes me think, “this is going to be pretty cool.” :) 
Admission is free, and more works than just these will be on display - new works that haven’t been seen before will be up as well as these pieces, new surprise work. I hope to see you there! :D And it would mean so much if you would help me out with a reblog and share this with your followers. :)  artbygabbirose:

I’M HOSTING AN ART SHOW! 

Oh My, What Beautiful Shoes You Have is an exploration of some of the most fascinating fairy tales and stories from our childhoods. With selections from tales both famous and obscure, the show features an series of paintings which depict Hans Christian Anderson’s tale “The Red Shoes”, as well as standalone paintings from such worlds as Alice in Wonderland, Coraline, “Goblin Market”, and other tales. The artist’s fascination with the worlds and characters created in such stories has come together with her unique, grunge like painting style to create a show which delves into the fear, wonder, imagination, and dreamlike nature of fairy tales themselves.

The show reception will take place on November 6th from 5 to 7pm at the Cornerstone Center for the Arts in Muncie Indiana. 


You’re all invited! There’s no charge for tickets and snacks are going to be gluten free. I’m trying see if I can get fatassvegan to cater some of the food (or at least make some awesome cookies). 

I hope to see you there! And if you can’t come but would be kind enough to reblog this and invite your followers, that would be really wonderful. 

This and other works from YART are now available on Etsy. Nothing made for YART is more than $20. If you’ve ever wanted an original now is a time to treat yourself.

Rainbow Rain

India ink and calligraphy pen on paper

Process video coming soon. I was captivated by the energy captured in the reference photo for this shot… it’s between dance moves by a young woman who has modeled for me a couple of times, who I cannot seem to stop painting, because the energy in it captivates me. 

Reblog if it suits your fancy.

Before I go to bed… here is my personal favorite of the pieces I put up for YART. It’s Zooey Daschanel done with charcoal, india ink, and gauche. I’ve been exploring the notion lately of where in a face do you actually need color VS where in the face is color actually radiant, true, and well, actual color and not just flesh tone… as well as how that plays with emotion.

Tomorrow - uploads of all the things and all the works. And prints of this as well as others will soon be available on deviantart! 

Thank you so much to everyone who came. It was pretty amazing. I want to do it again. I’m so thankful to the people who came by and talked to me, and also to the folks who saw something catch their eye and made a purchase.  I’m very grateful for all of that good stuff.  

I’m also very sleepy. Tomorrow, the uploads, they shall come. For now, here’s this. Hope you like. If you do like, follow and reblog! It’s very much appreciated.

My instagram posts to my personal blog, so bleh on that. But here is something I’ve been working on - one of many portraits for my YART today. Thinking of adding simple splashes of color. 

 

Reblog if you like it, pretty please. It helps me get followers. :) And I really appreciate that. Thank you so much if you’re already following me!
