Hey Y’all! I’m so happy to say that I have a new website! I appreciate you stopping by here to see me, but now you can find all of my information and art stuff on www.DanitaLyn.com. Come on over and see my new digs!
Hey kids! I’m so happy to announce that I will be opening my new art gallery on Etsy soon! I’ve been working hard to get it ready! This Gypsy girl has got a lot of stuff to share with you all! Here’s a peek at some of the high quality giclee prints that will be available(watermarks will not show on prints)….and there will be a Grand Giveaway for the Grand Opening! More to come….Eeeeeep!
I was able to show some of my work at the St. Pete Art Mash last night. It was great to meet some other artists, and share ideas.
This is one of my newest pieces. It is called Hidden Truths. I painted it when I was going through a difficult time in my life. She can’t open the book of Truth because she’s can’t move and she can’t get out of the cage, she’s stuck. So, she has closed her eyes to the reality of it all.
It was great fun to do the show with my son Milo Rossi. He’s a fantastic artist too! Those are his pieces on the right, next to a few of mine, on the left.
This owl is another one of Milo’s. I’m a proud Mom, what can I say!
This is a new piece I finally finished, after working on it off-n-on for almost a year. I don’t know what took me so long…it was just a progressive piece, that had a lot of emotion in it.
It is called “Lost” because that is how I was feeling. I was going through a rough patch in my life, due to my mother’s illness. I felt like I had lost my compass, and didn’t know which way to go. The birds, symbolizing my guardians, were trying to show me that I had to get across the bridge…just cross the bridge.
The piece is now complete, and hanging in Enchanted Notions, in St. Petersburg, FL.
It’s been a while since my last post on this blog. Life got a bit overwhelming. My mother was very ill over the summer, and I went to take care of her and I’m happy to report she’s much better now. My daughter got married in October, and as you an imagine, that took all my attention for a while. It seems that things are now creeping back to a state of normal, and for that I am grateful.
Being able to spend a little more time in the studio lately has made me happy and allowed me to create this beautiful Tribal Gypsy. I love her, she seems earthy and grounded. I have recently been asked to show my work in another gallery, Enchanted Notions, in St. Petersburg, and I took her there yesterday along with a few other new pieces. Christy, the owner of Enchanted Notions, is incredibly wonderful, and so supportive. I can’t express how grateful I am that we have met, and become friends. I adore her. I am SUPER excited to break into the St. Pete art scene, and it just feels right (if ya know what I mean). So if you are in the St. Pete area, go check out her shop, where she has many treasures and trinkets for you to enjoy.
My Flickr account has been compromised, not sure how that happened, but I will have to get to work on reloading all my pics (which is going to take a minute).
Prints will be available of all of my work soon on Etsy. I’ll give a shout out when that happens.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a WONDERful day!
Sometimes don’t ya feel just a little off? I know I do. There are days when I just have to sort of ‘get through it’, and hope that it will all come back around….and it always does. 🙂
I have been working on some pretty intense paintings for a while now, requiring a lot of my attention. But, for the last two days, I decided to take a break from all that and play in the paint for a bit.
I love to do mixed media work, playing with materials, and seeing what develops. The painting just seems to grow on its own. I had a lot of fun with the ideas, and all the bright colors….and created some new fun pieces.
