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

Acrylic on 11×14 wood panel board

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.

I am hoping to get the whole calendar thing figured out by the weekend so I can send off for proofs.  I hope it works, because I am super excited to see it all put together.

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.

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
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.

Freya’s Birthday


Today Freya turned one. We can’t believe how quickly time has passed since we got her last December.

Here she is at 11 weeks. Look at her cute little spotted belly!

And here she is now.  She is such a beauty.

Here are just a few things we love about Freya:

* She loves running free at the fenced park and in the dry river bed, but she never goes too far away from us, and the minute she sees someone else, she runs right back to our side.

* When we go for leashed walks, she walks in a zig-zag pattern in front of us with her nose down the whole time (using her hunting instincts).

* She is extremely docile and ready to please.

* She is a dainty eater. She chews every tiny little morsel of food…crunch, crunch, crunch.

* She loves carrots. When I am juicing, I’ll give her a small piece. She likes to take it outside and play with for a while, tossing it into the air and attacking it, then finally eating it. We have to be sneaky when watching her do this, because if she knows we are watching, she will stop and and act coy.

* When we get home from shopping, school, etc,  She is so excited to see us, she runs circles around us doing little yelping, crying sounds.

* She never barks. She only does little *gruffs* when a stranger is at the door.

We just love our precious Freya so much. We couldn’t have found a better pup for us.

pink and green

art by Regina Lord
Acrylic on 5×7 canvas board

I had absolutely no time to work on my last yoga piece today, so I am sharing these little paintings that I did a couple of weeks ago.

I didn’t realize it until now, but they both have pink and green in them. I must have been in a pink and green kind of mood.

Buddha – yoga painting no. 4

Buddha Art by Regina Lord
Mixed media on 16 x 20 canvas.

This painting was inspired by a journal cover I had made for my Art of Giving e-course. I had pulled it out to measure it for a new member and thought it would make a fun and colorful canvas.  I actually did a little more work to this painting after taking the photo. I thought that the flower looked too flat, so I worked on that a bit more. I hope to re-photograph it tomorrow and list it in my shop as a print.

work in progress

This is another painting I started today. I think it will be the last of this yoga series, since I am running out of time and have other events quickly approaching that I need to get ready for.  I am really excited at where this one is going, but there is still a long way to go…
