Candy Chips

I’ve created a small piece of art that I’ve put into RedBubble.com titled “Candy Chips”. It’s available as a card and it will probably primarily be a promotion piece, as it’s typical “Art by Kinnally”. Therefore at this time I have no intention of making it available as a large giclée print; just cards, brochures and the like.

If you like the look and the colors of this art, then you will enjoy my award winning piece “Gooey Chocolate Caramel Nougat #1“, previously posted in this blog.

“The Coasters”, a Fine Art Giclee

This particular artwork was named in honor of the singing group, “The Coasters“. Some of you younger people might not know them but they had some great hits way back when… (way back, way back – click the link and select an album of theirs and you can listen to a few musical excerpts.)

But they also remind me of fabric circles, like my mom and grandmother used to make before they sewed them together to make those wonderful quilts!

The color scheme of this artwork with its rainbow of colors, both muted and bright, works very well and the whole piece comes together in a wonderful harmony. The 3D effect of  each ‘coaster’ and the layering of one on top of the other in a beautiful spiral pattern gives a dramatic look to the art and adds lots of visual interest.

Some comments at my Online Gallery are: Absolutely fabulous! All the Best. – This is my favorite! Very cheerful, lots of motion! – Wow your work is amazing. I love fractals and you have mastered the technique 🙂  – Fantastic work!  – lovely ! nice colours  – Very cool  – Captivating and mezmerizing image!  – Amazing.

Needless to say this sort of reaction to my work pleases me very much! I hope you enjoy the artwork as much as they did!

“Shellfish Dream”, a Fine Art Giclee

Those of you who haven’t visited my Online Galleries may not have seen some of my latest artwork, so I’ll include some of my latest in a few of these blog posts.

This recent artwork I titled “Shellfish Dream” and it took me a few weeks to complete. It was a bit difficult to get the segments exactly how I wanted them to look, and to get the reflections to look as if the surface had some depth to it, almost like porcelain. No such shell exists as it’s composed of four spirals, not one. I hope you enjoy it!

1st Place Winner “Dragon Skin”, a Fine Art Giclee

I entered an online art contest at ‘A Singular Creation’ in March. The theme was ‘Geometric Shapes and Fractals”. There were 165 entries and some terrific competition.

I’m extremely pleased to have won First Place with my artwork ‘Dragon Skin’! Someone left a comment on the piece “Great composition, great colours, great pattern, great everything. It’s a beauty.” View a larger image and other comments.

After winning ‘Best of Show’ last month with “Gooey Chocolate Caramel Nougat #1“, this made back-to-back top honors for my art! My next piece might have to be titled ‘Tickled Pink!”.

Best of Show – Gooey Chocolate Caramel Nougat

A lot has happened since my last post. In February I entered the 2008 Fine Art Show at the Heritage Museum. It is sponsored every year by the local art league. There were 120 entries plus a youth division. This was the first show I had entered and the art consisted of beautiful paintings, watercolor, mixed media, photography, stained glass, metal work and pottery.

At the awards ceremony, as they handed out ribbons and went through my category (there were prizes for each category of art) without mention of my work, I felt disappointed but thought “Well, it’s my first show and I’ve got some stiff competition”. After handing out all of the category awards and by the time they handed out the ‘People’s Choice’ award I had pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I wasn’t taking anything home except the experience. Then they announced the ‘Best of Show’ and I was shocked to hear my name called out! I was grinning from ear to ear and was thrilled to get top prize in the first show that I entered!

I had submitted three artworks and the winner was ‘Gooey Chocolate Caramel Nougat #1’, a small version of which is embedded. To see a larger version with more detail, follow the link to the piece in my online gallery. The other work I had submitted was ‘Sinuosity #1‘ and ‘Dimensional Peek #1‘.
