H E L L O 2 0 1 5

love my new calendar for 2015
last month was super busy for muddypotts, therefore, i gave myself permission to not feel bad in the least about neglecting my blog. although, i did miss telling you all about every little sale i had near and far, the amazing show that we saw at crimson hilt in denver, and about my new arctic cat that my love got me for christmas! 

a new year can mean so much to so many. for me, its always meant a fresh start to being healthy, physically and spiritually, swearing off new debt, trying to lose those ten pounds that just won't disappear no matter what i do, making more meaningful art and becoming a more serious artist...well those things are always in the back of my mind, but i have so much to look forward to this year. i have no regrets of last year either. last year was one of the best years i've ever had. and this year will be no different...big changes are happening in 2015! and all i can say right now is....we're SOOO excited!!! 

hello 2015!!! so happy you're finally here!!!

Fire and Ruin 
in February

These next couple months are going to go by super fast. I'll be showing work in the 12x12 show the first week of December in Denver as well as in Art Takes Miami with See.Me. Then in February, I'll be joining nine other amazing artists at the Helikon Gallery in the Rhino Art district in Denver. I'm super excited and look forward to showing off some new, never seen before works!

moths + winter

I've been itching to paint for days now and finally had time to sit down. It's been awhile since I've posted anything new. Time is slipping away, but its all good...This has been one amazing and busy year! Seasons have changed and the snow is blowing once again.

Winter has always been one of my favorites. I love warm socks and slippers, sipping on a cup of hot green tea, listening to my favorite Pandora station...painting, drawing, glazing... Life couldn't be better.

The other night I was checking out some other artists on Instagram, and found a New York artist that is just phenomenal! Anyways, she inspired me to look into moths and those native to Colorado. I found the Hera buck moth to be quite beautiful. I started out by painting the background in watercolor, drew the moth and then painted in the wings with white titanium acrylic. I then made a couple photo transfers of the same moth and strategically placed them around the first moth. And then added more texture and color. The second image is digitally altered, both are available on RedBubble

Stay warm everyone! Winter is here!!! ~samos

Dandylions + Lemons

Last week I made this print using my dandelion bowls. You can find it on RedBubble. And if you really like it, you can get it made as a pillow, tote, or cell phone case! 


You can also find the original bowls in my shop, HERE...
