Painted Pendants Update

I've added three new pendants to the collection, this time focusing on eyes. With the realism and the natural skin tones, these make really striking necklaces - almost like it's part of you. It's thrillingly weird. :-) Click here to see them on Etsy.

I've almost got the commissions done too. If you want a personal portrait on a pendant - now's the time to email me for a commission. They do take a little time so any new commissions have to be started before Dec 15 to ship in time for Christmas. lisagloria@gmail.com

The Food Show

The show opens today at 33 W New York St, Aurora IL. I'm so excited - the works look beautiful together. Brian Busch is a wonderful talent and I think we covered all the "Food" bases, including paintings of food, about food, about taste, eating, and even a couple figure paintings of goddesses related to food production: Ceres (grain, childbirth) and Diana (the hunt).

The show runs until January, so please do stop by if you have a chance!

Here's a link to a Facebook photo gallery: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.241349152595631.62675.168388046558409&type=3&l=191378ed95

Painting on Silver - Rooster, Tilapia

I don't know if I can capture how luminous and striking a painting on silver is, but I hope you can imagine. Not to mention, of course, the cheeky attitude.

White Shell

You know how sometimes you get a mental image, and then endeavor to accomplish whatever that is, and then about half way through you look around and go, "whoa, I'm not sure I can do this." This is that painting.

I won't go into it - if you're a painter then I know you know what this painting entailed, but I wasn't sure non-painters were going to get just why I spent months on something so... simple.  But then I posted it on Facebook, and oh wow, everybody got it. So thanks! I hope you all get it.

Alla Prima Fisher Price Fire Truck

David Lewis of the Aurora Regional Fire Museum asked me to do a painting of a toy, in conjunction with sixtybones.com 's Molded Heroes show, opening April 9.  They even loaned me a toy - and it's so cute.  My brother had one just like it when we were kids.  The lil dude in front bouces up and down when you roll it, and turns his head.  And the bell rings.  Adorable.

Here's the pic:

It's up for auction right now, with proceeds to benefit the Aurora Regional Fire Museum.  Click here to bid: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180638497781&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT.

And here it is being made. Enjoy...

Poster Design - Alley (Art) Fest WIP

I was asked to create a poster for our fairly kickass Alley Art fest.  Last year was the first year and I enjoyed it a lot - a good variety of experiences, music, and art.  Not your mama's craft fair for sure.

This is the final image:



They asked me if I could use a sketch I'd done last fall for a poster, and I said sure...  I've wanted to design a poster for a while.  This is the work in progress, below:
