Me me me…
I’m Linda P. Cleary, artist, designer, monster maker, crafter, puppeteer, musician, improvisor, writer, mama (doggie and human) and sandwich lover.
This is where I sell my original art pieces from my current works to my Day of the Artist pieces.
The Day of the Artist is a project I started on January 1, 2014. Initially I was going to do an original painting every day for a year. Then I decided to make it a little more specific. What if I paid tribute to a new artist everyday by doing a painting in the style of their work? I knew it was going to be educating, challenging and fun. I never expected it to be such an intense psychological experience.
I only had one day to research and finish each painting. Some turned out wonderful and some I wasn’t so happy with. Some pieces took 5 minutes and were a breeze to complete and some had me grinding my teeth for most of the day. This project taught me on a daily basis about new techniques and materials. It also taught me about embracing failure and moving on. This journey made such an impact on my life and I am so happy to share it with you!
You can buy a painting from my project here in the shop section and feel free to explore my blog to learn more about each painting and artist. I also post my current works and processes as well.
I now use this site to showcase my current art which has evolved immensely after that project. You can purchase new pieces and also the pieces from my Day of the Artist project in the shop tab above and in the menu.
I’m hoping to do more art based challenges in the future when I’m not chasing a crazy toddler around!
I also have a business where I make furry monsters! Ghoulie Girls
