Moving Sale!

Posted on November 4th, 2020

You may have noticed there’s once again no Floating Gallery — sorry! It’s been… very 2020 in Chez Goth. The upshot is that I’m moving to upstate New York, where my cost of living will go WAY down and hopefully my peace and creativity will both go up accordingly. If you want more detail, feel free to support me on Patreon for $1 and go read about the drama.

So, I’m inviting you guys to rifle through my boxes of art and get 50% off! Prices are as follows:

Use this link to peruse the list! There are pages and pages of things tagged “for sale” and you can scroll through all of them. Some of the really old posts (like, pre-2014?) still have buy buttons or prices on them, please ignore those, I am the worst at fixing pages no one has seen in 5 years.

Everything is priced by size! The size should be listed on the post, if not, email me. Shipping is included for all art on paper; canvases may incur additional costs.

  • 5×5, 4×6 = $199 => $100
  • 5×7, 6×6, 4×8 = $249 => $125
  • 6×8, 8×8 = $299 => $150
  • 8×10, 6×12 = $349 => $175
  • 9×12, 6×18 = $399 => $200
  • 12×12 = $449 => $225
  • 12×18 = $499 => $250
  • 12×24 = $549 => $275
  • 18×24 = $599 => $300
  • 24×24 = $799 => $400

Email me if you have questions. No payment plans at this price, but if you want to claim something for payments at the full list price, I will set you up!

Don’t pay me until I’ve confirmed you were first. Y’all are fast when you wanna be, and I don’t want any broken hearts.

String Theory

Posted on September 17th, 2020

String Theory, 6″x6″ watercolor on paper

This weird little abstract sold to one of my Patreon supporters when it previewed, and got to skip the gallery experience entirely. It’s definitely a painting in which different people see different things, but the swirling layers of color and texture are certainly mesmerising.

It started as so many things of mine do as a background painted and left to sit on a shelf, while the back of my brain processed ideas for what to do with it. Eventually I went to pick texture out of the color and then add color back in to the texture with shades of purple and a hint of blue. There’s even a touch of shimmer along the right side, which will subtly shine in the right light.

Chickadee

Chickadee, 6″x6″ watercolor on paper

I’ve finally managed to mail my Mom her Mother’s Day gift this year, belated of course because time is meaningless in 2020, so now you can all see what she got!

She loves paintings of birds, and so I decided to do something fun for me with this orb-shaped, fluffed-up little winter chickadee. It’s got a lot of very pale, subtle shades, from the winter blue sky to the cream underbelly, but my old scanner did its best.

This little borb is a bit cranky about something, perhaps the cold — it’s certainly puffed up enough to keep warm!

September’s Floating Gallery is CLOSED!

Posted on September 9th, 2020

See you again soon!

The Floating Gallery has pulled up stakes and drifted off into the sunset!

I hope you enjoyed September’s temporary exhibits, and will be back another month for more. This month’s pieces have been sold or retired to make room for all new art. Join the email list to get an early pass into all the future Floating Galleries.

In the meantime, my Etsy shop is still open, and there will be comics and other, stranger posts here on the blog. You can also support me on Patreon if you want to make sketch requests, get downloads, get dibs on pieces as they’re finished, or just feel good about yourself as a patron of the arts!

Fascism is Bad

Posted on September 8th, 2020

Fascism is Bad, 6″x6″ ink and watercolor on paper

Some people have the energy to protest, some of us have to stick with protest art. If you told me at any point prior to 2016 that I’d be worried about literal nazis in 2020, I would have thought you were crazy. Just goes to show.

This piece uses several different brush pens and some bloodily patriotic watercolor to make its point.

 

Nazis ruin everything.

Above, you can see the spattered red and layered ink on the D in BAD. Below, the art’s in a frame that’s not quite right for it — it would be perfect in a larger frame, or one of the acrylic frameless displays.

Dreamlands 3

Posted on September 7th, 2020

Dreamlands 3, 7″x5″ watercolor on paper

Another piece that’s been in my Work in Progress pile for an embarrassingly long time, I took this city away from reality immediately and never brought it back.

From Mondrian to fungus, the buildings and their washed-out colors spring from a number of sources, including the usual Gherkin-inspired glass edifice.

I couldn’t tell you who or what lives here, perhaps somewhere close to Ulthar or well beyond the cursed plains of Leng. But you could probably tell your own stories about it, if you tried.

Above, you can see the play of dim color on the buildings and in the sky. Below, it’s been framed, like a peek through a looking glass into another world.

Old Haunts

Posted on September 5th, 2020

Old Haunts, 8″x4″ brush & ink and watercolor on paper

I’ve had the spooky, misty-dusk background of this piece sitting around my studio aka living room for ages, and finally one day I just pulled it out and put some trees on it. The light in the middle begged for its own something, and this loosely-constructed, half-overgrown haunted house grew out of that.

It’s possible your artist watches a few too many Halloween movies.

There’s a trio of trees, a handful of crows, and of course the spooky old house rising up out of the mist.

This piece has already sold, but there might still be something waiting just for you in September’s Floating Gallery!

Above, you can see some spooky trees and spooky birds and the misty gloaming sky behind them both. Below, it’s on my shiny new table easel, waiting to haunt its new home.
