Two By Two With You

Copyright 2014 Alisa Steady Art. Titled: Two By Two With You, on 24x24x3" deep edge canvas

So, I've been practicing 'letting go' *a lot* with my painting (which is also working on the perfectionist aspects of my personality...). And am painting like a kid again. Which is a lost art, really! I'm having a blast too! The whole process from start to finish is really rewarding. And, I spend more time with layering and technique, and less on the technicalities of drawing. Which means more color studies in the creative lab...
This piece is called 'Two By Two With You' and is on 24 x 24 canvas, with 3" sides. I painted big kid-like giraffes on the left and right sides because - well, I love giraffes!
This original is available. If you're interested in acquiring as a Holiday gift for a loved one (or for yourself!) email me: alisasteadyart@gmail.com.
This piece is $700.00 USD. I offer payment plans, but do request 1/3 down payment. 
It comes with free shipping and insurance, too.

Copyright 2014 Alisa Steady Art. 22 x 30 Acrylic watercolor paper. Titled: 'Tude

This painting is inspired by my amazing mum, Sylvia, who is a force to be reckoned with. She is kicking ass and taking names, and if you won't give her your name, she'll reach down your throat and take it. This 'tude my mum's been slingin' lately has to do with her focused drive to get their house market ready by Spring '15.
My folks are moving to Indianapolis, come hell or high water, right mum?
'Tude is all about mad love and crazy awe at a woman on fire who can single-handedly MOVE the world.

The original painting has sold, but will be available for prints. I will make the announcement on my FB Page when we've got the on-demand printer cued and ready to go!

Home Sweet Home

Copyright 2014 Alisa Steady Art, 'Home Sweet Home' 30 x 30 x 1 acrylic on canvas
This is one of the paintings from my paint like a four year old series, lol! Omg, is it wonderfully freeing. Painting is always fun for me, but these are like playing Patty Cakes with that big-eyed, chocolate puddin' smeared inner kid. 

This is 'Home Sweet Home' because I'm a homebody. And no where makes me happier than being right here, at home, with my furballs and paint.

This one is available through UGallery http://bit.ly/1xr3bTY.

The Extraordinary Rhino

Copyright Alisa Steady Art 2014. 36 x 36 Acrylic on canvas. Titled: 'The Extraordinary Rhino' 

When I was a kid, I saw a movie that depicted the Rhino as the 'bush fireman.' Every time a tribesman lit a fire, out of nowhere clamored this great, hulking mass that would stomp out the fire and then disappear just as quickly as it arrived.

Today, the Rhino is one of my beloved favorites and a totem animal. It's the Rhino's intimate connection with the earth that makes it an exciting, snorting, stomping symbol for confidence, steadiness, and sure-footedness.

As an artist, I have snorted and stomped my way through major growth this year. And I am assured that as long as I keep putting out the fires, I will continue to snort and stomp without fear.

Painting Like A 4-Year Old

Copyright 2014 Alisa Steady Art, 'Lions and Tigers and Bears oh Deer!', 36 x 36 acrylic mixed media

So, the winds of change are blowing, yet again.

I've just come off the exhilarating high of another fantastic artist workshop in North Carolina. Seems each time I venture to the Carolinas, magical things happen. Primarily, growth and expansion.

One of the take aways from growing pains as an emerging artist is - sometimes you have to go back to your child-like roots to find the sleeping giants in the imaginative glen.

And then poke the giants until they wake up, and chase you, wide-eyed and hollering into reality.

This piece brought me incredible joy as I painted it - forgetting all the rules and fundamentals of painting - and just exploring.

I expect to be doing more paintings like this. Cause it was fun!

This piece is available, direct from my studio.

The Arctic Guardian

The Northern Right Whale was almost hunted to extinction, until 1940 when a ban on hunting this whale was implemented. Since then, the population (unlike the Southern Right Whale) has barely recouped. The female whale doesn't reach maturity until she's ten years old, and gestation for a little one is 18 months.
Regardless of the odds, I am confident these beautiful arctic leviathans will come back. I know this because I have faith in the human race. Even though we may have been the cause of its near extinction, we are also the help this species relies upon.
To Life.

Once Upon A Humback

The oceans are louder than you think. Deep under the waves sounds resonate across the nautical miles. And the most magical, in my opinion, is the song of the humpback whale. Majestic beings who compose music and sing ancient stories about the world when it was a kinder, gentler place.
