Bicycle and Raven painting

Bicycle and Raven painting

I just got my mt. bike tuned up and it’s been fun riding it! The gears weren’t shifting properly but now they are all good!

I love my bike and I love creating bicycle and raven paintings. I have quite a few of them now.

Here’s the latest one.

I titled it Yay! Joy Ride! because that is how I feel when I’m riding…I feel pretty joyful and happy! I think mt. biking was the first time I ever felt the word “glee”!

Two Ravens Sit and Reflect painting series

Two Ravens Sit and Reflect painting series

As February begins, I’m thinking about Valentine’s Day and this got me to thinking about couples…which got me to thinking about twos…which got me to thinking about my “Two Ravens Sit and Reflect” painting series.

I’ve been painting pairs of ravens for a long time. I like painting ravens in twos because “pairs” of animals can symbolize love, partnership, tenacity, fertility, renewal, and abundance. Pairs of an animal are very auspicious.

Below is my “Two Ravens Watched the Sunset” acrylic painting.

Here’s a cropped version of “Two Ravens Protecting the Moon.”

I like these two looking at each other with the prayer flags and heart behind them. I painted them on a piece of recycled sky blue wood.

Two Ravens Painting

I love plays on words and the title, “Two Ravens Sit and Reflect” does that. If ravens could talk, there is the literal sense of two ravens sitting together and talking and reflecting about life. I love the idea of birds talking.

And then there is the mirror image of the two ravens reflecting back on each other.

It’s been a popular series and one I enjoy painting!

I think I would like to paint some pairs of other animals too. Feng Shui has a list of auspicious animals which includes Tortoise, tiger, phoenix, lions, elephants, fu dogs, deer, frogs, rats, rabbits, cows and horses to name a few. You can find the symbolism of these animals here.

Which animal would you like to see reflecting on each other in a painting?

This raven painting cracks me up. When the title came to me, I just laughed. It seemed fitting. I love that my raven has a personality named Mr. Raven. He’s a bit mysterious, a bit devious, definitely the trickster!

New Acrylic Hummingbird and Garden Painting

I’ve finished some new paintings and I’ll be posting them here in the weeks to come.

It’s been fabulous painting again in my Baja studio! I love the light and looking at palm trees and the view of the ocean. I feel very grrateful for the opportunity to create art in this kind of setting.

I’ll first put my new work on the VIP page of my website for those who have access to view first and then a week later I’ll be posting them on my website and blog. If you have VIP access, you will have first dibs at purchasing any paintings that I put on the VIP page.

There are  tiny little hummingbirds here in Todos Santos that we’ve been watching in our garden and they are beautiful!

So I’ve been inspired by these little creatures. Hummingbirds are one of my favorite birds to paint.

What is one of your favorite birds?

NOTE: Normally, I would be posting images of our stay here but I forgot my camera’s download cord so I don’t have access to the photos until I get home.

I’ll be doing a series of posts about our trip but you will have to wait a few days.

We are getting ready tto travel back starting tonight by taking the Baja Ferry. We’ll be going back the same way we came. Going over to mainland Mexico from La Paz and driving to San Carlos, Nogales and Tucson and then on to Prescott.

Peace, Lindy

Online Art Sale of Mini Paintings

Are you looking for some affordable original art? A cute gift to give someone special?

I have colorful mini paintings for sale.

minipaintingsalehead

I’ve been inspired by the idea of “paint what you love” that Flora Bowley talked about in her painting e-course.

I had a square of material that had cowboy boots on it. I had purchased some soap that was wrapped up in it. I love this piece of cloth and had it in my studio.

Cowboy Boots on Cloth

Inspired, soon I was painting cowgirl boots on mini canvases.

Development of a painting – Protecting the Nest III

I was painting about a dozen canvases and pieces on wood while I was taking the Bloom True e-course by Flora Bowley. I’m still working on some of the pieces and they are developing and changing and don’t look anything like the way they started.

It’s always interesting to me to watch a painting develop. In the future I’ll be posting some of these pieces to show you.

What I love about the Bloom True e-course is you can take what you would like from it, what resonates with you, and leave the rest. Many of the things I was doing are things that I have learned in previous experimental drawing and painting classes but I had fallen away from them and this e-course got me back on track! Love that! One needs that as an artist to keep growing. And taking workshops is inspiring for that! And this one is amazingly inspiring! It is unique in that it combines more than just painting techniques. There is a whole mind, body, soul element to it. I highly recommend enrolling for the next e-course in June.

Letting images come spontaneously and intuitively, letting my own marks and color palette fill the canvas was a joy!

Below are some of the images of my painting, Protecting the Nest III, as it developed.

Some of the first layers and adding lights and darks.

protectingthenest-2

more layers, keeping the raven shape, adding in the feathers

protectingthenest-6

This is the awkward teenager stage where the painting looks yucky!

Protecting the Nest III, Acrylic on Wood, ©2012 L. Gruger

The final painting has some of my signature marks in it.

The marks I use with string, making spirals and swiggly marks with red and black paint. And the marks I use by scratching into paint on wax paper and pressing it into the painting. These marks are what Ariane Goodwin, Ed.D. from the smARTist Telesummit calls one’s fingerprint aka one’s artist voice with painting. The marks that make your painting yours. These are my marks and they are the one’s that a person can recognize an L. Gruger painting has. That and the black outline. I  love using the black outline and currently I’m experimenting with white outline too.

What are the things that make up your fingerprint?

Be Here Now

Sometimes, when I’m waiting for something, I have to remind myself to “be here now”. To be mindful that the present is where it’s at.

It’s easy to put myself into a stressful mindset, thinking about the future and where I want to be. And sometimes I can’t help myself to look back on the past to see how far I’ve been.

It’s this tug of war of past and future and that is where the stress comes in. If I can just relax and be where I am. In this moment, where everything is just fine, all will be well.

In this case, Greg and I are waiting to move to Prescott. We’re in this transitional period and sometimes we get a little antsy and wish we were further along then we are.

We are waiting on a house we put an offer on in Prescott, AZ. It’s a short sale house and you know how long those take! We want to hurry the process along but we just have to wait. Although we’ve put a deadline on ourselves that we will move on Oct. 31st even if the house doesn’t go through yet.

But when I start stressing about this whole situation,  I have to stop myself from living in the future or the past and remember to “be here now”.

I was looking at a print of my painting titled “See How Far We’ve Come” and I’m sure it represents Greg and I looking back at the path we’ve travelled.

"See How Far We've Come", Acrylic on Wood
"See How Far We've Come", Acrylic on Wood

We have done a lot in the last 4 years. We’re coming up on our 4 year anniversary of when we met each other.

It is fun to look back on past adventures and go through our photo albums of some of our trips. The memories bring joy and remind me that we are moving forward in pursuit of our dreams.

Yet, truly, it is the present, that we are living. The now. I keep reminding myself to live in this moment. Be happy with where I am and grateful for everything in my life.

I don’t want to be distracted by fretting about the future. I don’t want to miss out on what is in front of me right now.

It’s about trusting in the present and believing that everything is happening for us exactly when it is meant to happen. Yay! I like that idea. It’s so much less stressful to think that way too.

"Two Ravens Sit and Reflect" Painting Series

I wanted to share two raven paintings that I finished the other day.

I’ve been working on this raven series titled “Two Ravens Sit and Reflect” for awhile now and I finished two more paintings for it. I like the play on words that I use in the titles for these paintings.

The first one is titled “Two Ravens Sit and Reflect on the Waves.” Inspired from when we went to the beach the other day and watched the surfers watching the waves.TwoRavens-2The next one is titled “Two Ravens Reflect on the Sun.”  This one was heavily influenced by the sunny days here in Baja. It is wonderful to enjoy blue skies and sunshine here in Todos Santos.Talk of the weather is common because it is just so beautiful! I wanted to do something different with these black birds so I made their wings expanded with the idea that they mimic the rays of the sun which are expanding upwards as well.

TwoRavensBoth paintings are 6″ wide x 6.75″ tall, acrylic on paper.

Hope you are enjoying June.

What I Find Inspiring – Brave Girls Club

This happened back in December but I’m just mentioning it now. I was the Featured bird artist on the Brave Girls Club daily truths email called “a little bird told me”.

What is the Brave Girls Club you may be wondering? It’s a community of women founded by Melody Ross and her sister Kathy Wilkins in 2009.

Their website says the “Brave Girls Club is a worldwide community of women who want to live the best, happiest, most productive and fabulously brave life they can possibly live…and that means something different to every single one of us.

Brave Girls Club is an online community, a portal for amazing connections, a news source for everyday heroes, a resource for great ideas, amazing endeavors, everyday problem solving, realistic recipes and unforgettable get-togethers. Brave Girls Club is a place to feel free, to feel peace, and to feel brave. Brave Girls Club is not an exclusive club…every woman is invited. Brave Girls Club is life-changing fun, life-changing truths, and life-changing friendships.”

I love receiving the Daily Truth emails in my inbox! They really touch the heart of the matter and what I’m feeling so many times!! My bird art was featured on the Dec. 2nd, 2010 email. It read like this:

Dear Beautiful Girl,

Keep your thoughts in the places that you want to be, dear friend. It takes a tremendous amount of discipline, but it is so worth it to train your mind to shy away from fear, hopelessness, dread, negativity, anger and jealousy. It truly is possible to practice day by day turning your thoughts towards gratitude, happiness and goodness, true happiness for the accomplishments and blessings of others, hope for the future, and forgiveness….even in the most difficult of times.

Each day, just make a solid decision that you will do whatever it takes to feel peace for the rest of the day. When a difficult feeling or situation arises, remind yourself of the commitment that you made that morning. Focus your mind on the beauty of the world, on the love that others have for you, on the love that you have for others, and on the blessings that you find in the moment (even if those blessings are as small as the fact that you have a roof over your head) and focus on hope for better days.

We must choose for yourself how you will feel, how you will react, how you will move forward in each moment. No one can do this for us. It is SO worth the work it takes to train ourselves to continuously focus on what is RIGHT rather than what is wrong.

You are phenomenal, strong and capable.
You can do this.
xoxo

And it looked like this in my inbox.

Courage to all!

Two New Acrylic Paintings on Wood Box Frames

I have 2 new whimsical bird paintings that I’ve painted on wood box frames. They are 11″ x 8″ with 4″ deep sides.  These have been a popular format and I love painting on wood. They’re very versatile too. You can hang them on the wall, put them on a book shelf or end table or even on a window sill.

I like the way the image wraps around all 4 sides too. To create the nest I used  white marks over layered colors of blue, purple, red and green. Then I tinted the white with a pinkish color. I really like the look of it.

The colors remind me of Spring! I must have warmer weather on my mind.

New Mini Paintings – Original Acrylic Paintings for Sale

I’ve been really busy getting some mini paintings created. I’ve been having a lot of fun making them!

Each one feels like a little colorful jewel. They look sweet all together especially when they’re hung on the wall in multiples. Some of them will be in a Small Works show opening on Dec. 3rd at the Tumalo Art Co. and some will be for sale on my website beginning Dec. 8th.

Dec.2010MiniPaintings

I especially like these bicycle paintings. They are a little larger than my mini size which is 5 x 5 inch. I made them 8 x 8 inch which I like. It’s a little bit bigger size but still small. They’re painted on canvas with gallery wrapped sides so the image wraps around the edge. They’re wired and ready to hang.

I made these little paintings with bicycles because I heard about the Cross Culture: Bike + Art Love event which coincides with the Cyclocross Nationals here in Bend, Oregon. There are lots of events happening around town Dec. 9-12 that are bike and art related.

The bikearoundbend.com website says the event “pairs bike-centric artists with Bend businesses, inviting opportunities to meet the artist while enjoying a festive atmosphere.” What a cool idea.

So that got me thinking about bikes! If you know me, you know I love my mountain bike. So I thought it would be fun to make some little paintings with a bike in them. And it was fun! I like how they turned out.

I also liked this mini raven painting. The colors just glow in it.

Another one of my favorites is this one with the bird’s nest and little bitty blue eggs. I imagine it to be a ravens nest. Although raven eggs have spots on them and aren’t this blue…but still…it’s all from my imagination so it can be whatever I want it to be. Oh, the beauty of painting from one’s imagination. Love it!

I liked using the white paint to create the nest pattern. I might try some more of this. What do you think of this technique? I’d love to know your opinion.

New Whimsical Bird Art – Original Acrylic Paintings

I have some new whimsical bird art that I would like to share with you. They’re acrylics on paper. Mostly small.

She Watched One Thread Blossom

I’ve been painting these little bird creatures for a number of years now. They started showing up in my paintings when we moved to Bend, Oregon in 2003.

A Small Dream in the Making

We have tons of birds in our backyard. Lots of hummingbirds and quail in the summer. Robins, jays, ravens and chickadees the rest of the time.

What’s interesting is to see how my whimsical birds have changed over the years. Below is an early bird I made. My color palatte was a bit darker.

A Small Space of Rest
A Small Space of Rest

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. It’s just different. Change, I believe, is good for an artist. It shows one is growing in their art. I believe I have grown as an artist. Here’s another early one.

An Enchantment was Cast
An Enchantment was Cast

I like this quote from “The Mission of Art” by Alex Grey.

“Art is communion of one soul to another, offered through the symbolic language of form and content. An artist creates a sensible form, through harmonious use of the medium (paint, clay, music, and so on), which expresses content, by subject and feeling. We absorb metaphysical sustenance from the balance of formal means and expressive ends. Art expands the appreciator’s consciousness by providing a glimpse into the hearts and minds of strange beautiful humanity. Art is nutrition for the soul. The soul cannot thrive on junk food.

Many artists develop technical skills – they can draw, paint, or play an instrument – but seem to have little that is fresh, original, or worthwhile to say. Other artists really have something important to express but lack the skills or courage to express it. Rare is the artist with skill who offers a significant statement.

The only way to formal inventiveness and technical ability is to work and work, studying and perfecting the craft. Artists discover unique features of their medium that contribute to actualizing their personal vision. A well-crafted work of art requires discipline. Devotional labor lavished on a work of art radiates love and care to the viewer.”

I like to observe the changes in my art and celebrate that I’m still at it, still celebrating life with images that fulfill me, that bring joy and calm to my spirit. Work and work and more work at painting, perfecting my craft, as Alex Gray says. I try to be true to myself when I paint, even in the midst of grief, sorrow or disappointment. So here’s to staying calm and clear and bright and continuing to paint! flower
