Bats! Halloween GIF NFT

Bats! GIF NFT


I made cut paper bats one year to decorate for Halloween and later scanned them into my computer. Now they're an animated GIF to make you smile! Available on Voice now.

The Pendulum Swung Clear Off the Clock (Animated GIF NFT)

The Pendulum Swung Clear Off the Clock (Animated GIF NFT)


This was my reaction to the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The name is "The Pendulum Swung Clear Off the Clock and For A Period of Time Nothing Else Seemed to Matter." It was like going out of time so when I turned my painting into an animated GIF I made the clockface spin backwards. And that made the hands of the clock, eventually, start to look like they were moving chaotically. An optical illusion actually, but people not trusting what reality is anymore is part of our lives now, isn't it? This NFT is now available exclusively on Voice.

The Chicken Jokes (Animated NFT)

The Chicken Jokes Animation


Here's something just for fun—a little hand-drawn animated short based on chickens crossing roads and punk rockers. It asks the question: did the chicken know the punch line of the joke? Available as an NFT on Voice.

Spring Emerging As An NFT

Spring Emerging

Magnolia flowers just beginning to blossom caught my eye one day. This piece was composed digitally using my own multiple image layered photography techniques. But it was completed in oil pastel and oil pencil. And now it's available digitally again as an NFT! Although with purchase of the NFT I do grant the right to print it for your personal not-commercial use.

Not into NFTs yet? Prints on paper or canvas as well as ready to hang prints on stretched canvas are available in my Etsy shop. Here's one listing. Check out the description for links to other options.

Buddha Pop with Cyan and Magenta Borders is Now an NFT

Buddha Pop with Cyan and Magenta Borders


I decided to make a couple of stills from the Buddha Pop animated GIF available as NFTs as well. I had two versions of Buddha Pop that I used primarily with lesser color shift versions in between. This version with Cyan and Magenta borders is available on Voice now. Purchase includes the right to print it for your own personal use. 

Prefer to buy a print on paper or stretched canvas instead of an NFT? This piece is available in my Etsy shop.

Buddha Pop Animated GIF NFT

Buddha Pop Animated GIF NFT

Here's something fun. I'm a fan of the Buddha! And I usually use gazing at his image to encourage a feeling of peace before meditation. But in this piece I wanted a feeling of celebration. It started as a photo I took of a tarnished copper Buddha sitting in a garden. Then I did an acrylic painting of it, scanned it into my computer, and added borders and multiple digital effects. It feels like a neon sign a person might see in Japan. Now an NFT on Voice.

Rebirth (Green Sagebrush, Red Sand) NFT

Rebirth (Green Sagebrush, Red Sand) NFT


Sagebrush is a symbol of rebirth in the high desert of Arizona. Ranchers drag a chain across the ground there, ripping up the trees and vegetation to make it easier to herd cattle. The first plants to return are the Sagebrush. This painting shows Sagebrush being whipped around by the wind. But that's appropriate because rebirth can be a chaotic process. The original painting is pastel and acrylic. With purchase of the NFT—available exclusively on Voice—I grant the right to print it for your personal noncommercial use. 

Not into NFTs yet? Conventional prints and ready-to-hang prints on stretched canvas of this piece are available in my Etsy shop.

Fall Into Winter NFT

Fall Into Winter NFT


One of my favorite pieces because it depicts the change of seasons with the maple leaves I love so much in Autumn and icy branches I love in Winter. This piece was composed digitally using my own multiple image layered photography, then finished with oil pastel and acrylic. And now it's been redigitized as an NFT, available exclusively on Voice.

Wild Ride on the Looff Carousel is now an NFT

Wild Ride on the Looff Carousel


"Wild Ride on the Looff Carousel" was composed digitally using several photographs I took, finished by hand in acrylic and pastel, then digitized again to start a new life as an NFT! I was on a photo shoot at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and happened to notice a couple of older women waiting in line with a small child. They were very serious-looking and tired and probably had not ridden the carousel in years. But a few minutes later they were screaming in delight and laughing nonstop! The NFT is available now, exclusively on Voice.

UPDATE: And one day later, this was sold!
