Well in case you haven't noticed I changed up my blog.....still need to work out some of the kinks, so bare with me a bit.  I'm an artist, not a tech person and this stuff makes my brain hurt.

So the "new direction" came from me thinking about the Rock Series and what I wish to make of this.  It's been a really good learning experience for me...but now I need more.  So I'm heading in a more artistically freeing space by not painting myself into a corner...literally!  

From now on I will paint the legends as the mood hits me. Instead of grouping things and matching backgrounds.....uuggg!   Too much pressure, not enough fun.  I want more freedom and flow in my work.  
For instance, I have a terrific picture in my brain of a different kind of painting than what I'm used to doing with Michael Jackson as the legend.   I just need to explore that area of creativity without thinking, how does it fit into the series?  I just need more...that's all I can say.

So after receiving an offer for my Jimi Hendrix piece and realizing I had to break the pattern.  I had to let go of the elusive "show" I am planning and think outside the box. I had to let go of one of my babies.....that's a really hard thing to do.   Especially when it is one of your best.  But all of the sudden I just got calm and instantly I became completely untethered to an old idea.
So drum roll please....the new title of my series is 
       "ROCK, BIKES & TATTS"  

I think that pretty much sums it up.

So here is the bigger news....I sold my Jimi Hendrix painting to a young couple, Willow and Cary, on the upper East side in NYC, thx to their designer Nellie...they are hanging him on a large exposed brick wall....YAY!  

And because of this revelation hitting me like a ton of bricks....pun intended...I decided to change all the prices on my original pieces of Rock Art by 35%.   So I'm putting it out there that if anyone is interested please feel free to scoop one up as is...or by all means, make me an's time to make some space for the new I go!  
And remember....ROCK ON! xoxo juner
