New Colorful Whimsical Acrylic Paintings

Whale, Raven, Sugar Skull Paintings

I’m in Mexico.

I can see I’m being affected by it’s beauty, color and magic.

I’ve always loved the sugar skulls in Mexico. I’ve done one other one a few years ago which you can purchase as a print. I felt the calling to create another.

I’m fascinated by the raven and I’ve made quite a few paintings with him in it. This time I’ve added him to a painting with a dream catcher.

A good explanation of the dream catcher can be found at http://legomenon.com. They say, “The shape of the dreamcatcher is a circle because it represents the circle of life and how forces like the sun and moon travel each day and night across the sky. The dream catcher web catches the bad dreams during the night and dispose of them when the day comes.” I like that.

I own a dream catcher that I have in my home in Washington. It has beautiful feathers hanging from it and is made from twigs and leather string.

In Todos Santos, we can see the whales spouting and jumping out in the ocean. I love watching for them. Greg said one time he heard the whales singing when he was swimming at Las Palmas beach. That is cool!

This is a post about some of my products on Zazzle.

First I want to share my new phone case which I love. It is so bright, with vivid color!

Here’s a detail of it.

The great thing about zazzle is you can customize things. So if you want to add words or move the image around you can do that.

I recently had someone request a product with one of my designs on it. They wanted to know if I could put my teardrop trailer raven image on an apron.

I said yes! I can do that. So if you have an idea for a product that you would like to see my art on, send me an email to Lindy@artbylindy.com.

I’m always happy to create new items for people to purchase. Spreading the joy of art is one of my goals. And putting art on products is a great way to do that.

I call these new whimsical, acrylic paintings my 2017 Baja Series as I created them while down in Todos Santos, Baja, Mexico this year.

They are acrylic on wood panel with 3/8″ to 1/2″ black painted sides and a 3/8″ to 1/2″ wood block glued on the back of the painting so they stick out from the wall. They are wired and ready to hang.

They all have vibrant colors and I love the way they came out!

The backs are painted black and I’ve signed, dated and titled each piece on the back with my lucky silver pen.
