She created some colorful, full figured sculptures which I love! Here’s an example: I had created a few drawings in my sketchbooks over the years inspired by her work. Then recently I did this painting and I’m pretty sure it was inspired by Niki’s art and my other painting titled She Wanted the Rainbow So She Put Up with the Rain.…

Spirit Bear Painting http://artbylindy.com/2016/08/spirit-bear-painting/ http://artbylindy.com/2016/08/spirit-bear-painting/#comments Sat, 13 Aug 2016 03:00:17 +0000 http://artbylindy.com/?p=9416 I love it when the unexpected appears in my paintings. This spirit bear showed up as I was painting and I love that he did! There is much symbolism in this piece and it feels very special. The sacred spirit bear is the keeper of dreams and memory. I like that the symbols float above him as if the dreams and memories are floating through time and space. I really like the night sky with the stars and moon too!…

A good day to be working on my paintings. I love painting in the studio! It’s not that cold out but I am bundled up so I can have the door open and the fresh forest air come inside. This is what’s on my art table. Belle likes keeping me company. What a sweetie! I like using my old 2007 Jubelale six pack packaging to store some supplies. My studio gnome “Oleg” watches over the…

Now I’m excited to receive my very own copy of the “Still the Birds” Darryl Purpose CD. My painting was used on the cover! It’s so fun to finally see the real thing and hold it in my hand. Wow, I’m so honored! I love Darryl’s music! I’m going to listen to it right after I post this. The art direction, design and layout of…

Hiking around Bellingham WA http://artbylindy.com/2016/04/hiking-around-bellingham-wa/ http://artbylindy.com/2016/04/hiking-around-bellingham-wa/#comments Fri, 29 Apr 2016 15:42:46 +0000 http://artbylindy.com/?p=9296 One of my secrets to life is keeping a youthful attitude (dig those patterned leggings I’m wearing) and getting outdoors and enjoying the view!

If you love hiking around Bellingham WA, you’ve got to go check out this view! Those are the San…
