Free Shipping Sale is happening now

Hello dork-wads. I am just here to tell you that if you wanted to you could get free shipping on any painting in the store. Like right now, until midnight tonight. Just enter "freeshipping2013" when you check out. No, you can't combine it with another coupon code.

Coco, 24x36. Letting loose and letting myself get very scribbly without controlling it too much is so much fun. Plus I love peach next to deep blue so much. Also dusty blue next to lavender, and army green next to magenta. You know what? Someone put this in a nursery please. Its exactly the kind of thing a newborn should be looking at (red and black are the first colors they see right?) Its much more unique than something pink for a girl, and blue for a boy. Put this bad boy on a mint green wall, or a lavender wall for either sex! For the love of Zenu!

I have some new pieces up that I personally like to look at. I have been painting much less lately, but what I do end up with is much more of "what I want to look at." It takes a long time to shift gears and I am still grinding that clutch all up and down Peachtree but soon my dears I will be a drag racing- painting metaphor.

Stumble, 36x60. I love this size for over furniture personally. Bright mixed with velvety dark is hot y'all. This painting has rich chalk pastel lines over matt dark paint layered over drips, and graphite scribbles and then over that is more paint. I love deepest darkest green. I would hang this over my bed because it is soothing as crap! If I were a designer I would put this puppy over a very dark purple velvet sofa with square lines.

Picina 36x48. Is there anything prettier than tomato red and pool water blue together? I always think of Swiss graphic design for no reason other than I guess I saw that one time and now its imprinted. This one would go great vertical, or horizontal. I have a confession: people who don't understand that the drips in a painting don't have to move downward make me crazy.

Talking Only Me and You, 48x48. This was one of those paintings that I shunned in my studio bathroom because it looked so bad to me. The original painting (which I nick named Clown Chlamydia). Then I painted over that bad boy and I like that you can see through the yellow paint. Its like yellow cellophane on a gift basket and your like "smoked sausage...ewwww." There is just something about gold and yellow that I love.

I talked about "shunning paintings" at the talk I gave over at Gregg's last month. Not my favorite thing to do, speak in front of a few people looking at me. Not at all. Never doing that again. Then I paid out of pocket to video that shiz. I probably will never show you that video. All I could think about was how much I hated it and how much I wanted to go home. I was like a little new girl in third grade who cries in Math class because she misses her mommy (true story dudes). This time I didn't cry though, I just had distracting fantasies about martinis and then bed. Lordy! Everything about being a grown up is better isn't it! Plus when you are an artist you can just say "I am a sensitive arteest and its totes normal for me to loose my prunes y'all."


  1. Love the new work. You always make me feel better. :) Today I am exhausted from cleaning the house for company. My blog break brought me here and I am so glad it did. Loving this art so much.

  2. I am really digging the deep blue piece. I just can't seem to go to the dark side in my own work but I am trying. "Coco" is amazing!

  3. Damn... I hate it when the blog gods send you back to a blank comment form! Here goes again.

    So I was saying I love the deep blue painting as well.

    ANd then... I'm having the first showing of my artwork in San Miguel de Allende MX tomorrow night (!)... with an opening. It's funny that you mention how you hate standing up and speaking in front of people.

    Cus today, my limbic system lizard-brain thought "Hey, maybe I'll give an artist talk tomorrow night to get more people to come to my opening!"

    Thankfully, my pre-frontal cortex immediately kicked in and said a big "Naaaaah!" Thank God.

    I hate speaking in front of people... if they would just look somewhere else or if I could stand behind a sheet, everything would be fine! ha

    Your work is looking great!

    just in case I can't post with a clickable name, here's my site if you want to have a look... www.carolnicola.com Send good thoughts for sales! Prices are much cheaper down here... but I need sales, so I'm goin' low.
