Like the inverse of a sun in eclipse, this dark corona shines out of a golden disk, creating an image almost like a crown of thorns or a winter wreath.
The rich golden hues are hard to reproduce, but they make a striking contrast to the dark, opaque black.
This piece looks amazing in a dark, wide frame, contemporary and dramatic, a perfect painting for a spot that needs a statement.
Above, you can see the rich golden-yellow background, and the darkness of the black brushstrokes creating the strange halo. It’s been put in a beautiful frame below, striking and elegant.

This lovely, subtle Pathways painting is a reminder that even while the world burns, there’s still beauty in it.
The fiery colors are a mix of natural and artificial pigments, a limited palette with some soft sparkle and a lot of warmth that’s still muted enough to be sophisticated contemporary art.
This abstract painting would look stunning in your home or office.
The muted warmth of this piece is hard to capture, but the detail above shows it pretty well, along with the texture of watercolor and paper and even the tiny hints of sparkle hiding in the paint. Below, you can see it in a temporary frame, floated on a white background to show off the hand-torn, hand-painted edges.

Tiny, intricate pen-and-ink details combined with a cheerful, loose-painted yellow halo of petals make this small art the perfect thing to brighten up your space.
The middle is painted in a rusty ochre over the black ink, with the petals bursting forth like light from the solidity of the center section.
One patron described it as a Golden Snitch, with its combination of warm yellows, complex inner motifs, and airy-light outer wings.
Above, you can see a close-up of the middle section, tiny circles nestled together and washed over with rusty ochre. Below, you can see this piece in a frame, a burst of light out of the warm center.

The King in Yellow showed up recently in pop culture True Detective, though we never did get a properly otherwordly connection to Hastur and his pallid mask. Names have power, and saying someone’s name three times has long been a traditional way to summon that which you perhaps didn’t really want in your living room. But Hasur is there for you this holiday, whether you like it or not.
Say My Name, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper. Visit my Etsy shop and get a card with a relatively harmless Hastur of your very own.

Go out of the week with a bang! This image is like a brilliant sun with vibrant, rich colours and shimmering Duochrome Autumn Mystery forming licks of fire and spattering explosions. Like a bullet through an apple, there’s and entry and a bigger, messier exit.
This explosive piece of art could brighten up a corner of your home with its mix of rich matte Japanese paints and the shimmering red-orange-gold of the duochrome paint, but only until Sunday when the Floating Gallery closes up shop once again.
Exit Strategy, 5″x5″ Japanese and duochrome watercolor on watercolor paper.
Above you can see the shiny paint catching the light and turning from red to gold. Below, you can see it in a frame, small enough to tuck into a little corner or fit on a desk, adding a bit of vibrant interest.
