Quick Update!

Many of you know, many of you do not, but I am in grad school and it pretty much takes up all of my time.  As a result, the Etsy shop is closed until December and the end of semester.  I am still taking on commission work but as a disclaimer, completion time has drastically increased!  If there's something you MUST HAVE, send me an email and I'll be more than happy to work with you, just know it may take longer than you're used to!  Thank you all for understanding and I'll see ya in December!

Amanda Bee Twists on Classics!

After spending a very long school year working my bee-hind off, there aren't enough words to express how happy I am to be painting again this summer break!  A huge thank you to all my fans for being so supportive during the year, your patience was award winning.  There are plenty of new and old clients keeping me busy as a bee these days and a pretty big announcement coming out soon (if all goes to plan!).  I've always had a huge appreciation for art history and classic artists so I thought it might turn out great if I put my special artistic twist on some of mine and your favorite pieces!  So if you there's one you really like, don't hesitate to shout it out!  I'll be updating the facebook page and the ol' instagram accounts first and then posting and pinning later!  So be sure to like the facebook page or instagram to see them first!!

So many apologies for lack of posts but school is back in session and is keeping me BUSY BUSY BUSY BUSY!  Many thanks to everyone who made the sale a huge a success!  As always, feel free to send me an email should you have any questions or comments.  Looking forward to spring break to get some work done and then maybe a show in the summer!

Sale Sale Sale Sale Sale Sale Sale Sale

I hope everyone had a terrific 2012!  One of my New Year's resolutions was to get my art drawers ORGANIZED.  With that thought in mind, I've decided to part with some of my sketch paintings and overstock/sample archival ink prints.

As a disclaimer, most of these pieces are not absolutely perfect.  They are what I spent time on preparing for a larger scale painting (which is also found in this sale!).

Another disclaimer is that this is my first time doing this, there are bound to be some hiccups! So please bear with me if any unfortunate casualties arise!  I have also never used Goodsie before, so fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly.  There is a $5 shipping charge per piece, unless that piece is 5x5" or less (when you check out you must select $5 shipping)!  An item may appear to be available but when you add it to your cart, if it has been sold, it will say sold out!  If there's any questions please don't hesitate to contact me via email (I'll be posted by it for most of the day).

Side note, I didn't have a lot of time to properly photograph every piece but trust me that the colors are truly wonderful in person.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a delightful day!

Amazing Artist: Michelle Armas

Michelle is one of my all time favorite artists.  Her blog is a must-see.   Her use of color and her ability to compose a work that is so controlled yet chaotic has no parallel!  I was so thrilled for her when I saw some of her work featured on Anthropologie's webshop!   My particular favorite is called "Blarney" (hello, Mr. Turquoise!).  One of my favorite activities from undergrad was assignments that were required to be "in the style of."  So, I went all retro yesterday and got to work!  Thanks to Michelle for everything she does, she's such an inspiration.

(side note, this work is not for sale or reproduction)

Amazing Artist: Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol is a personal favorite so when the time came to create a flyer for my school's annual can castle competition, I knew exactly what I was going to do! Side note, I know it's been a while since my last post but graduate school is keeping me plenty busy! I still take on commission work however, completion time has increased. I hope Sandy didn't treat everyone too poorly! We got lucky here in Annapolis, nothing like the Jersey shore. My heart goes out to the heavily effected!
