Custom Paintings Holiday Deadline

18 Nov

Custom Paintings Holiday Deadline

If you are interested in hiring me to create a custom holiday gift the deadline is approaching. If you live in Southern Vermont or Southwestern New Hampshire I will give you until December 8th to order. Everyone else get those orders in before Thanksgiving! You can visit my website (click the photo) to get an idea for pricing or email me at info@ornaglyphology.com.

A note on custom orders and the holidays

24 Oct

With the holiday season approaching this is the busiest time at Ornaglypholgy Studios. All custom painting orders that need to be completed for the holidays need to be ordered by November 21st. Please keep in mind that I am a one person crew so the earlier they get in the better as I have a limited number of paintings that I can complete each month. If you order and I am booked up I will let you know and we will figure it out from there.

To order a custom painting visit: mindyfisher.com to pick your size and pay. Then email a photo or a description (or both) of what you would like to happen in the painting. Paintings usually take a couple weeks to complete but I do not finish them off until I’m satisfied with the quality…so give me a month. If you have any questions or need suggestions send an email to info@ornaglyphology.com. I can’t wait to work on this years batch of paintings!

From gods to dogs….

This week I worked on a small series of dog paintings. I wanted to have a recent example of what my pet portraits can look like and to also have some available on hand for the upcoming holiday season. If you have a request for a specific breed consider ordering a custom painting or shoot me an email with any questions at info@ornaglyphology.com.

This summer a client asked me to create an Egyptian themed painting using my characters as the subject. I am not posting this particular painting because it’s going to be a wedding gift. However while working on her painting I became interested in researching Egyptian gods and goddesses. It became apparent that I wanted to paint a few of these deities in my style. I find it fitting since I’ve been told that my ornaglyphs look like either hieroglyph’s or ancient Mayan art. After doing these 5 paintings I think I’d like to try doing more deities from civilizations all over the world (when I have some free time). If you are interested in seeing or purchasing any of these paintings click here. 

Custom options are now available!

Totally New Awesome Radical Stuff!

I finally put 4 new paintings in the store. These are all small paintings that I created to carry around with me to festivals. There are more coming. I also knocked off $5 off my older paintings that are on paper.

One thing I have been experimenting with is putting my ornaglyphic writing on the backgrounds instead of in thought bubbles. I like this approach because it could still represent the characters thoughts or it could represent what’s going on around the character….or it could be awesome wallpaper…or……what do you think? This is now an option for custom portraits as well because it looks cool but not everyone wants a cartoon panel painting. Talk to me if you want to order a custom….info@ornaglyphology.com

Here is another painting that was ordered during the holidays! I wish I knew this cute pitbull’s name. Sometimes when there isn’t enough room for a speech bubble I’ll just create a wallpaper with the ornaglyphs. This piece is 6″ by 6″, gouache, on board. A new price sheet for custom orders is coming soon!

Ornaglyphs = Magic and Love

18 Dec

Recently I was commissioned to create this painting that a client ordered as a gift for her beau. She asked me to do whatever I wanted as long as it took place in the restaurant that she sent me photo of. Her boyfriend owns this restaurant in Europe. I’m being vague because he hasn’t received the painting yet (but she gave me permission to post it). I have never been asked to do a setting in one of my paintings so this was a challenge but I am very happy with how it came out.

When I sent my client a photo of the painting she sent me a couple emails that made me super happy. She told me how she met her boyfriend and that the painting eerily depicts it. This is an excerpt from one of the emails she sent me:

One more thing, and then I’ll stop gushing. The night I met M. — I was a customer(!) and he was working front of house (which he almost NEVER does, he’s always in the kitchen) — I stayed at the restaurant for hours. I even helped him close, and we sat alone in the restaurant talking until very, very late at night. The two lovebirds in the painting (the way they’re looking at each other!) — I’ve decided they’re M. and I. Well, those lovebirds are not only sitting at the same table that M. and I sat at, but they’re in the exact same PLACES. It makes me smile.

The reason this is so cool to me is because I work very spontaneously. Basically I sketched out the scene then added the characters in afterward before I painted it. There was no planning involved, no thumbnails and no consultations between my client and I.

Lola

Lola La-La-La-La Lola

20 Nov

This is the oldest cat from my family (she lives with my parents). Lola is a Bengal. She was the runt of her litter so she is tiny but quite ferocious. She loves attention and is very jealous. If you pick her up and say “kiss” she will bump her nose on your nose…she likes to do this three times in a row, but if you do it more she will bite your nose (then she’ll put her paw on your cheek and dig her claws in a little in case you decide to put her down). When I would get home from school we used to play this game where I would chase her into my parents room then go back to the living room and she would slowly come out and when she got close I would chase her again. Lola is best friends with my middle sister and I am using this painting to blackmail her into visiting me in Chicago (my family lives in New Hampshire).

One more thing: One time Lola jumped on my face in the middle of the night, when I was asleep. Having a cat jump on your face when you are dead asleep is one of the most disturbing things you could wake up too. I freaked out and her natural instinct was to claw my face. When I got up the next day I had streaks of dried blood running down my face.
