Black Swan

Today I am dropping off my work for the art show I am participating in tomorrow.  I am really excited to see all the other artists' work; it should be a fun evening!  Again, if you're around Dallas, TX and would like to see some interesting art, come to Quixotic World around 8pm on May 10. 
Sorry for the poor quality of the photograph below, but I wanted to show you another one of the pieces I am submitting for the show!

Bows & Stripes

Today is a super quick sketch I did a few weeks back of a lovely dress I saw on pinterest.  I love stripes & bows, so this dress is perfect for me!  What are some things you love in a dress?

A Hot Pink Afro

Here is one of my pieces for my art show coming up next weekend.  I love how she turned out with her huge, hot pink afro!  I think she will fit in nicely with the other fashion portraits I've done, like here and here.  Let me know what you think of my latest piece in the comments below!

Custom Illustrations

I wanted to show you all a pretty illustration I made of a lovely client named Ali.  She requested a sketch of herself and this is the outcome.  For those of you who are curious, I do custom illustrations in peoples' likeness... eyecolor, hair color, a particular outfit, piece of jewelry, shoes, bags, etc!  It's a relatively quick turnaround - usually around a week.  You can email me at MelissaNadineCauthen@gmail.com if you have any questions or requests!

Yellow

As I told you all in this post, I am participating in an art show in Dallas, TX on May 10.  I am super excited and have been working hard on many pieces for the show.  I just finished this one last weekend and I love how she turned out.  If you live in Dallas, you should definitely try to  make it out!  There will be over 700 people at the show, so it should be a great evening!

Carrie Underwood, ACM's 2013

Happy Monday!  Today's illustration is of Carrie Underwood from the ACM's this year.  She always looks stunning and I just loved her interveiw on the red carpet where she talked about her dress.  She said that she picked her dress because it reminded her of spring and made her happy.  Hope you all enjoy it!

Abstract

In addition to the fashion illustrations and sketches I create, I also create custom canvases.  I love to do abstract paintings, but I also love to do larger, canvas versions of my fashion illustrations and portraits.  Today I am featuring one of my abstracts that I recently painted.  I love pink, and this abstract definitely shows it!  I've been working on many new pieces for the art show I am participating in on May 10, so I'll be sharing those here soon!  What do you think of abstract paintings?
