Well, It’s Something.

So I still haven’t written anything. Boo for writer’s block.

But my creativity has not abandoned me entirely. I’ve been feeling inspired to paint lately.

Here is the first complete one. I’m working on another already-pictures to follow. Sorry the lighting for this image isn’t amazing. I don’t have the best lighting with the gloomy weather.




These love birds were painted on canvas with acrylic.

Ode to the Artists

I am a big supporter of other writers and artists. I think it is really important as an indie writer to be part of the community. So in the spirit of that, I added a page to my website for artists to submit a JPEG image to me of something they created based on something I wrote- either from a book or from my blog.

Here is how to submit:

  • Send me a Jpeg of your work to author.al.sant@gmail.com
  • include your name
  • the title if the piece
  • the medium it was created in (digital art, clay, oil paints, etc…)
  • your web address for your own personal webpage, blog, or facebook. (optional)

I will not share your work anywhere besides my website. The artwork is still 100% yours. I just want to encourage networking. I will post the image on my art gallery page, and include a link to you.

Just so you know, I do reserve the right to refuse to post something, with or without reason or notice.  I posted some of my own digital artwork to make the page interesting until I get the word out about including other artists.

Night Trees

Night Trees

This is one of my drawing that I pulled into Photoshop to make a wallpaper. I get bored of staring at the same pictures all the time, so I make new ones. In this one I imagine two loves who anger a fairy and get turned into thorn trees. Pictures can inspire great storytelling sometimes.
