They look great in this colorful shop full of outdoor art, flowers, plants and color. If you have been trying to find a rock but keep missing out, come by and by one and take it home.

Digital Doodles on the Rocks!




I have been playing with a way to do more with my Digital Doodles. I have so much fun doing them, but it has been challenging to find an innovative way to share them creatively. I have recently run across a way to transfer the digital images to new surfaces. This is done by hand, so maintains the handcrafted element of the art. I am transferring the images onto rocks. At this time, I am not selling these fun creations, but hiding them in local green spaces and posting hints on a Facebook Page: Nature Nerd Rocks (@naturenerdrocks). My goal is to use my art to get people to interact more with the outdoors. It has been fun. Check it out and join in on the fun.

These two collaborative pieces just came off the easel. They are another example of collaborative work between me and my sister Lyn Jackson (lynjacksonartist.com). These are mixed media pieces painted on re-purposed cabinet doors.

Watchman



Watchman
is a freshly finished 24" X 24" acrylic. Herons can be both beautiful and unnerving. I try to not glorify my subjects by only focusing on their perfect beauty, but also portray the darker underside.

Red String of Fate

Red String of Fate, 20"x 20" acrylic on canvas

The Red String of Fate originates from a Chinese myth. According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red cord around the ankles of those that are destined to meet one another in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. Ravens are very social birds and tightly bound to their mate. In this piece I painted a lone raven with a broken string. I will let you generate the story from here.
