Mexican Loteria – Sublime Stitching Giveaway!

loteriaembroiderypatterns_sublimestitching

If you you don’t know what Mexican Loteria is, it is a Mexican game similar to Bingo.

Mexican Loteria - Sublime stitching

This fun iron- on embroidery pattern, by Sublime Stitching, was based off of the cards in the game, which are really fun and colorful.

Sublime Stitching very kindly sent these to me a while back, but very sadly, I never have any time to stitch them up.  So, I would love to offer them up to  of my lucky readers.

Please leave a comment by Sunday night and I will announce a winner on Monday.

2015 Wall Calendars are ready for Pre-Order

2015 Art Wall Calendar - Art by Regina Lord

I was so excited to finally get the proof for my wall calendar today. And may I just say how beautiful it turned out?  The images are sharp and vibrant, just as I had hoped.

2015 Wall calendarAvailable for pre-order —>>> HERE <<<—

As I mentioned before, it was really hard to pick which images to add. First, I’ve done a lot of painting this year and second, I do mostly portrait style.  So, I did some more painting, some cropping and a bit of digital manipulating to get what I hope to be a nice mix of my favorites and hopefully yours too.

Day of the Dead Girl - Art by Regina Lord

This last painting I started over a month ago for the All Souls Procession Poster Contest,  but the contest was cancelled at the last minute for lack of interest. What!?! I’ve had this idea in my head ALL YEAR waiting to use it for the poster contest. So, so, sad. Oh well. It is finished and ready to show tomorrow at the Arts in the Plaza show (St. Phillips Plaza).  If you are local, please stop by and say hi!

day of the dead painted face

day of the dead painted face - art by Regina Lord

I have an art fair this weekend and since it is mid October and Day of the Dead is a few weeks away, I thought I would take this opportunity to make (and hopefully sell) a few Day of the Dead pieces. I have a couple more that I hope to have finished by tomorrow.

viva la Frida

Fida Kahlo art by Regina Lord

I started this painting about 4 weeks ago, was struggling with it and put it away for a while.

I decided to take it out today and finish it. When my oldest saw it, he said, “Oh good. I was wondering when you were going to do another Frida.”  I guess it’s becoming a thing.

sweet dreams

sweet dreams, girl and moon art by Regina Lord
Sweet Dreams
Acrylic on 11×14 canvas

I took this idea right out of my art journal, but morphed it into something a little different.

I sorta want to paint my bedroom walls dark blue with purple trees, stars and flowers now, but I don’t think it’ll fly with the hubby.

Magic Wings

Girl with Magic Wings
Acrylic on 12×16 canvas

I wish I had wings right now. I just found out that all the yoga art I just did will not be hung at that local yoga studio. I am sorta crushed. They are thinking another month, maybe. My dilemma now is whether or not to trust that they will want to hang them in the future and whether or not I should save them or take them to my upcoming shows. Ugh!!!

the little dancer

little ballerina dancer art by Regina Lord

When I was little, I so desperately wanted to be a ballerina dancer. I was lucky to get a few years of ballet and tap dancing when I was little, but I had wanted more.

My grandmother had these sheer, pink, frilly curtains in one of her bedrooms and I would imagine taking them off the window so I could wrap them around my waist and twirl, twirl, twirl around in a flowy skirt. I think I was always twirling. In fact, I still like to twirl when I am in the kitchen by myself.

Acrylic on 11×14 canvas

I was hoping to have enough new art to make a 2015 calendar, but many of my painting were done in portrait orientation and I can’t crop them to make them work. I really want to have a proper wall calendar printed this year. A big one, so that you can write in things on the days.

This painting will go into the calendar. Six months are done, only 6 more to go…

Yoga Tree

Yoga Tree Art by Regina Lord
Centered
Acrylic on 20×24 inch canvas

Here is the last of my yoga series, well at least for now.

This tree took me a while to get right. I wanted lots of layers of color to give it depth and life. I had wanted to put a moon on one side of the tree and a sun on the other. In the end, I decided to add only the sun for strength and brightness. It makes the whole painting feel more centered to me.
