Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I've been working hard to get my new site up. Check it out at www.LPayneward.com


Distorted Disney Art Show

A belated thank you to my dearest friends and family who came by to support my first art show. It was a little nerve wrecking, but after it was all said and done, I felt super accomplished. I got a ton of positive feedback, along with smiles an stories of how they remembered collecting Garbage Pail Kids when they were young. I love being a child of the 80's! (Look close, my pieces are small and in the center and surrounded by tons of talent!)

The entire gang of such amazing artists! I was one lucky girl! Such a fun time, I may just do another one of these shows again.

Distorted Disney Show Art Submissions

The theme of the Distorted Disney Art show was such a great idea, it was hard for me to pick just one. But after some thought, a fun idea popped in my head. What if I did a take on the popular 80's Garbage Pail Kids collectable cards. I mean, I LOVED those suckers! I was going to paint them by hand, as my blank canvas' just stare at me. But, I decided on trying a whole new medium for me. Painting with Photoshop paint brushes, blur and spread tools. I had a blast!

One of my good friends actually took these two home with her. They hang proudly (and most disgustingly) on her kitchen wall. I was honored:)
