Prune Puffs, 36" x 24" mixed media on canvas by Kellie Day ©2014 bike painting

Prune Puffs bike painting

Who names a painting “Prune Puffs”? That is so un-sexy. Somehow a vintage Prune Puff recipe ended up in this bike painting. I bought a bag of scrap paper at the Two Hands Paperie in Boulder while on a road trip, and these papers just circulate until they get slapped onto a painting. […]

What do you WISH for today?

Summer Nicole, mixed media on canvas by Kellie Day, 9" x 9"

Summer Nicole

Summer is here, the air is warm, and the long brown cold spell has turned to rich greens and brilliant blues that feed our eyes here in Colorado, after a long winter starved of a wider color palette. Girls in dresses on bikes ride by. Here is a little birthday […]
