Affordable Art!

"The Council Tree", abstract art by Rachel DicksonWhether you're an avid art lover or not, if you have ever looked at original artwork you already know that price plays a role in whether you actually buy it or not.

Sure price is not the only factor, but we all know that it IS a factor.

Art sticker shock isn't any more cool that any other form of retail sticker shock. I've looked at a plethara of orginal art myself with the intent to purchase new pieces for my collection and have experienced the "Oh MY" response when hoping for a more affordable price than the one I'm presented with. Just as I've experienced the opposite "heck YEAH" response when I find a piece that I love and upon learning the price I wanna high-five the artist!

With that in mind, I've chosen to price my artwork affordably. Original art is meant to be enjoyed!
Sure, there's a balance when it comes to the potential of selling oneself short. Work that is worthy of the price paid for it...well, you know they say, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and I think there's a fine line between overpricing and underpricing. I'd love to hear your feedback, but in the mean time...

Onward and upward for the arts!

Logo art and NPR radio.

Fooling around with logos from Rachel Dickson, www.racheldickson.comI'm BIG fan of NPR radio! I thought it would be fun to paint the NPR logo just so I could have something cool and artsy to represent my fav radio.

This isn't for sale...but once in a while us artists have a need to paint something fun for our very own. I just thought I'd share this with you. It's ok to goof off and try something just for the fun of it.

Thank you NPR for making me smile!

Refrigerator art!

Refrigerator art by Rachel Dickson, www.racheldickson.comIn the spirit of creating some new pieces of art...I thought it might be fun to create some "art for the frig".

Turns out...it has been fun to paint these pieces.

What are they exactly? Acrylic abstracts on a small 2 inch by 2 inch ceramic tile that has a magnet fixed to the back for easy display.

I'm exploring various color pallettes so stay tuned for many more of these little pieces of original art to come!

Please note that these little pieces are currently available at Silverlining Gallery in Waterville, OH.

Abstracting Mountains

The Mountains are Calling, by Artist Rachel DicksonI couldn't help myself. Yes, I think most artists reach for some part of themselves when it comes to what content we choose to paint.

And for me? Well, the mountains are always calling. Regardless if you live in the midst of them or not

This abstract landscape was inspired by the mountains of Tennessee.

Acrylic on wood, this piece is painted with a silver background and hues of purple, blue and green.

"The Mountains are Calling" measures 4.00 inches tall by 7.00 inches wide and is acrylic painted on wood. Love abstracts? Me too! VERY affordably priced at $25.00, this piece would make a fabulous artistic addition to your collection!

Figuratively Speaking

Abstract paintings are by far my favorite genre of art, but not only do I collect abstracts myself but also enjoy painting new abstracts too. Yet another of personal favorites is figurative work. Essence II, by artist Rachel Dickson, www.racheldickson.comHowever, since the subject of figurative art is worthy of it's own blog post I'll skip it for now and get right to the point.

Introducing my latest abstract figurative painting. Titled "Essence II" it measures 9.25" by 14.25" and is painted with acrylic on wood in hues of gray, hot pepper orange and aqua blue. (hot HOT trending colors in the current home decor market!)

Affordably priced at only $45.00 this piece is waiting to be added to your personal art collection.

Abstracting Thoughts

I've always felt that Rethinking What's Real, by Artist Rachel Dicksonwhen starting a new abstract painting and looking into a blank canvas with paintbrush in hand...that abstracted thought is about to imerge. I generally have a color palette selected before I create a new piece, but not normally do I have the actual design in mind. I find that it emerges on its own once I start putting color on the canvas.
But this painting was a little different. I was working with the idea that much of what I thought was real (what truly has value in this life, spiritual matters, political matters, career, things that we may choose to define ourselves by, etc was somewhat an illusion of what is ACTUALLY real). That's what this painting is about. Rethinking. All of it.
The little bird decoupaged onto this painting represents the calm, reasurrance that nature provides as we struggle through mentally processing the static and noise of sorting out thoughts on such things (nature just lets that chaos happen around them and just don't seem to care...all-the-while seeming better for it).
While DEFINITELY a different sort of painting for me to create in the midst of painting a wild bird series, I think it's true and representational that life's details don't arrive on the scene already organized and clean or black and white or simple.

Rethinking What's Real measures 9.75 inches by 9.25 inches and is painted on recycled wood panel for a rustic flair.
