“Art with a Ghostly Twist”

First, let me start off by saying that I’m a huge fan of the punk rock band, The Ramones. One of my favorite songs by them is “Pet Sematary” (yep, just like Stephen King’s story). “I Wanna Be Sedated”, “Rock & Roll High School” and “Blitzkreig Bop” are some of their more well-known songs. The Ramones were a band from 1974 – 1996 consisting throughout their career with the following members: Joey Ramone, Dee Dee Ramone, Johnny Ramone, Tommy Ramone, Richie Ramone, C.J. Ramone, and Marky Ramone.

Aside from their numerous albums, The Ramones even had a film titled after one of their songs, “Rock & Roll High School”. The main character’s name is Riff Randell. With her playful pigtails and knee high socks, she and her friends defy an overbearing principal who is set out to ban all music from entering their school. This 1979 comedic film even has a treat for all Ramones fans. The band is featured throughout the film! Yes, I’ve seen it countless times… love it!!

Okay, I’m sure you’re probably wondering why am I bringing The Ramones up since I write about the paranormal? Well, unfortunately the lead singer, Joey Ramone died April 15, 2001 of lymphona. A battle, that after fighting it for seven years, finally took Joey’s life. Joey’s real name was Jeffrey Hyman. Not long after his death, I painted a picture of him using watercolors. Throughout my life I’ve painted lots of different artistic creations, but this particular painting was the only one I’ve ever experienced anything like what I’m about to tell you.

I sketched the picture, then carefully chose the colors that I wanted. After applying the last stroke, I stepped back and inspected the newly painted image before me. Everything was exactly like I had painted except for one very noticeable detail. Joey’s eye peering through the lens of his sunglasses! It’s very discernible and I promise that I didn’t paint his eye. There was never any intention of an eye being there. I painted a completely solid colored lens.

Now I know that when painting with watercolors, that using the medium can be pretty tricky sometimes, but an eye forming perfectly, looking through the lens was definitely trippy! And after all these years, it still makes me think….. hmmm….. coincidence? Who knows…. just thought it was interesting……

2019 is Almost Here!!!

OMGosh!! Can you believe it?! Where did all the time go? 2018 is almost over….. WOW!!!

Had such a wonderful Christmas with my loved ones, hope you all did, too! Our plans for New Year’s Eve? Just going to relax at home by having a traditional family celebration of doing the countdown to the new year while sipping on Welch’s Sparkling Grape Juice and having our fave snacks. Yep, keeping it low-key… it’s how we like it. 😉

Definitely feeling blessed because this year has been a fabulous one full of total awesomeness!! Got the exciting opportunity to be a VIP at the First Annual Mountain State Supernatural Convention that was presented by Society of the Supernatural! It took place on Saturday, June 16th at the Wheeling Island Hotel Casino in Wheeling, West Virginia. Also, my husband and I spent that entire weekend at the haunted and beautiful Bellaire House in Bellaire, Ohio, where we joined others as we all investigated the paranormal activity that has been so well-known to take place there. What a phenomenal time we had, my husband and I still continue talk about it! I was so pumped that I wrote an article titled, Spooks, Speakers & Spirits to share the exciting details with you!

“Risen”

She soars high above adversity, rising higher than she’s ever been before. The Phoenix is an exquisite representation of a courageous spirit who refuses to back down in the face of fear.

The Phoenix is strong, confident and ever so elegant. She embraces the will to survive and seeks to aid others on their journey to empowerment!

Recently I wrote an article titled, Dodging the Bullet about how I had to get further testing (another mammogram and an ultrasound) to make sure that I didn’t have anything ailing me. My results came back all clear, thank goodness! But after all was done, I was inspired to paint a soaring Phoenix with a Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon as the bird’s body. I searched online for ideas on how to design the Phoenix and finally came up with a soft, yet bold, representation of how I wanted the artwork to turn out.

Here is my painting. I am extremely happy on how beautiful she is!!! She will proudly be displayed on a wall in my office. So excited!!  🙂

“The Empyrean”

Viewing the highest level of Heaven as it beams down through the clouds, amid its grandeur and grace.

There’s such beauty when gazing into the above, wouldn’t you agree? While watching the clouds drift by, one can see endless images form right before their very eyes. Such a majestic world we live in, one can easily get lost daydreaming in its glory.

“The Empyrean” is a work of art that I passionately created inspired by the late afternoon’s sky. I was so moved by the vibrancy of the blues and the cotton candied hues that I couldn’t resist getting lost in the intensity of the moment.

“The Three Lilies”

An enchanting exhibit of Mother Nature’s blooms!

Is a photograph that I recently took of some beautiful orange lilies that bloomed right outside our living room window. I was so mesmerized by the flowers’ vibrant color that I couldn’t resist the opportunity to grab my camera to permanently capture their image. And yet, even though they were already beyond being exquisite in their own lovely way, I gave them a little more glamour by enhancing them with digital effects.

I was so pleased with how it all turned out that I wanted to make “The Three Lilies” a wonderful piece of art that everyone can enjoy as well. “The Three Lilies” is available in various, exciting ways from prints that can be beautifully displayed upon the wall, to your very own throw pillow, duvet cover, tote bag, phone case, coffee mug and so much more!
