Here's my painting for the upcoming Kingdom Animalia art show. It is called "Blue Mirror", 16" x 16" oil on linen (© Amy Crehore 2012). This just a quick digital shot (above), but you can see this painting with its frame HERE (in a photo that shows more texture, detail and vibrancy of color using real film).
Check out this amazing list of artists (below)! If you are near Anaheim Hills, CA on the night of June 29th, 2012 please don't miss this wonderful show to benefit Big Life Foundation. I will be there along with many others!
The show will take place at Land Rover Anaheim Hills, 5425 E. La Palma Ave. Anaheim Hills, CA 7-10 pm.

Here's a sneak peek at the shimmering green end graft of Tickler Ukulele # 3 (concert uke built by Lou Reimuller). This is just one of the special details on the new uke that I designed. It is almost ready for me to paint a design on the front.
I know it has been a long time since Tickler #2, but it will be worth the wait.

I think the sky itself is a perfect work of art. I have been looking at and trying to paint it lately and, I have to say, that I have never had more fun. Here is a quick ipod photo of just a detail of a new painting that I recently finished for a show in CA at the end of June. I will be blogging more about the show very soon and posting my completed work of art. I am glad to be finished with it as I spent quite a few weeks of intense painting. That is why I have been so quiet lately! This group show is going to be amazing and I can't wait to tell you more about it.

I wrote a little essay about the movie Ghost World for Boing Boing's Mind Blowing Movies series.
Here's the scene where Enid discovers Skip James' "Devil Got My Woman" for the first time, a record she got at Seymour's yard sale.

This is a small detail of a larger painting that I am working very hard on for an upcoming show. That is why I haven't been blogging much this past week. I still have a ways to go. (Above: grainy ipod photo of detail of unfinished work.)
