Happy Thursday!
I've added some small paintings on wood up in my Etsy Shop. Some are new and a couple are older but they are original and quite affordable.

As of late I've been experimenting a lot with style and color and though it's really fun I always worry about "style" and why it's not always acceptable for artists to change styles. And how do you know when you're "changing styles" and when you're just growing and expanding on what you already do? I think I've touched on this before and I think many artists struggle with these questions so I'm just putting it out there again. Sometimes I have trouble quieting the ideas in my head and feel the only thing I can do is just make shit.

Hope everyone is enjoying their winter weather in their various homes!

Happy 200!

My 200th post!! I never properly acknowledged my 100th post on here so I made myself promise to be more alert when it came time for the 200th.

ok I'm over it.

But I wanted to share some images from The Canvas Project show that I took part in, courtesy of the Art House Coop: (second row from the bottom)

I definitely plan on participating in more projects with them in the future and I highly recommend it. It's nice to have a little challenge/motivation, etc. to keep things interesting.

oh Shirt!

I'm really pleased to announce that two new shirt designs are finally available to order online from Blood is the New Black! So if you need that last minute gift I think there's still time to order!

The site was acting weird this morning so if the links don't work just find "Andrea Shear" under artists and you can purchase the shirts from there. Available for men and women.
