Autumn Vase – New Art

Autumn in southern California isn’t like the majority of North America. We have less obvious changes. Despite popular belief, some plants and trees do hibernate, but not all at once and not all have such colorful transformations. Plus, as a semi-tropical climate, we often have our hottest days in October. So, having a hot pumpkin spice latte while hiking through the mountains is less appealing.

Spending last autumn in the Northeast of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Maryland reminded me of how autumn can be so strikingly beautiful and so cold, in different latitudes. I really enjoyed the large expanse of hills changing colors into oranges, reds and yellows. It was a feast for my eyes. While working in Wareham, Massachusetts, I created this autumn bouquet on the banks of a river by an old red barn. This art is part of my adventure of traveling for eight months in a row. You can read more about my travels and how I could afford to be gone that long on a starving artist salary here.

It is the print and postcard of the month that I mailed to patrons of my work on Patreon.com/Loviedo. If you are in the USA and would like to receive art in the mail each month, join me there! I also write poetry. As you can see one of my patrons has signed up to receive an art postcard and an illustrated poem in their mail each month. I offer many options and budgets for patrons to choose so I definitely recommend checking it out.

Summer Solstice Mandala – New Art

Summer is blooming with vibrant colors; vines travel up tree trunks, flowers burst with nectar and the sun shines brighter than usual. Let’s celebrate the summer with gifts from mother nature. What better way than to make a little magic with the plants that are overflowing in our backyards, forests, valleys and canyons.

Beach Love Art

I made his heart with seaweed on a beautiful sunny day at the beach. It’s one of my favorite pieces, even though I’m not usually a fan of heart designs. I love creating art outside because it is a calming experience, akin to meditation for me. It is also non-toxic, doesn’t create waste and the supplies are free so everyone can make art.

Outside Art – Petals, Leaves and Twigs

I made this last week on my walk home from work.

outside.art

Creating art outside in nature is so balancing. I love to take walks in the park and stop to create art out of leaves, flowers, pine cones, rocks, twigs or even litter. I become so absorbed in the process that I rarely notice when someone has stopped out of curiosity to watch me.

What do you think?

Have you ever made temporary art outside?

Outside Art –

“The Earth does not belong to us, we belong to the earth.”

Creating art outside in nature is so balancing. I love to take walks and pause to create art out of natural debris and litter. Here is some of my recent work.

After I make art out of trash I throw it away in a container. This makes the activity both fun and environmentally friendly.

New Art: Turning Litter Into Love

Sometimes I see litter on our beautiful planet and just walk on by feeling disgusted and disappointed, but most of the time Iook for a trash receptacle or bag to pick it up. I live my life as much as possible by the syaing, “The Earth does not belong to us, we belong to the earth.”

When I saw these candy wrappers I just couldn’t resist. I had to turn this litter into love.
