18 x 18 inch – bits of found paper on bristol

It’s cold and quilts are nice for when it’s cold. Here’s a quilt square made of paper. My father makes very beautiful quilt squares out of clay. I’m ripping his idea off. Hi, Dad. Send me some photos of your clay work so I can hype you in exchange?

Got cards in the works for this new quilting series! Gimme a shout if ya want some.

Cheers, R.

Recent art show was very lovely! Managed to smash two of my frames right out the gate during set up, but so it goes right? Never the soft adventure of undoom? All the other artists near me were so incredibly warm and helpful!

I’ve been bad at posting. Been working on lots of new things and getting ready to be in a couple holiday markets! More details to follow. But more importantly: how are you? I hope your brain has been full of lovely ideas and joy lately, my currently-reading-this friend.

Cheers, R.

Shot from a local bar

I got a new camera! This bar is always full of confusing energy, so I took a picture of it. A friend and I were playing pool here, and were casually given suggestions of other – less competitive – bars to go play pool at. It didn’t hurt my feelings. Not at all. Not one bit. I felt great after hearing that.

Hope you are having the best day. Cheers, y’all. R

Message me if ya wanna buy some prints or cards of anything on my site ($8+)! Including a written love note, and hand mailed from yours truly.

18 x 24 inch – charcoal

Today, a personal favorite of small round birds: the wren. Ok, I might be biased as a quite small and increasingly round human, but these little friends rock.

Bubbly and energetic, just like their songs. Look for House Wrens hopping quickly through tangles and low branches and, in spring and summer, frequently pausing to deliver cheerful trilling songs.

I hope you’re having an excellent day. Sending hugs your way.

18 x 24 inch – charcoal and ink

Hello friends, I drew a thing again! It’s been too long! And it’s another small round bird: a warbler. He is very, very pleased to meetcha.

The male Chestnut-sided Warbler sings two song types; one is accented at the end, the other is not. The first is used before the arrival of the females and in the early nesting cycle. The second is used mostly in territory defense while the birds are raising young.
Males that only sing one song type appear to be less successful at attracting mates than males that sing both songs. The early-season song has a musical quality with an emphatic ending, sometimes interpreted as “very very pleased to meet cha!”

Hello friends! I’ve been terrible at posting lately! How are you? How has your week been? I hope you’re doing well. I’ve been busy trying to plan out what to show and how to show it at an upcoming show in Seattle. Here’s my space having been turned into a staging ground for how to arrange things.

Also I made a Facebook page because that seems like a thing people do when they want to sell things. It’s here if you wanna follow me: https://www.facebook.com/racheladmasart.

Can’t wait to catch up on everyone’s amazing art that I’ve been missing for the last week!

Cheers, R.

Hello friends! I made the wings out of wood and fabric and took the photo with my Rebel K2 (film).

His wings don’t work so great, but he does write very beautiful words that everyone should be lucky enough to read: https://sammart.one/. Thanks for being my model, Sam!

Skeletal structure of Gogo Dodo – pencil – 18 x 24 in

The first cartoon character I ever loved and related to was Gogo Dodo, from Tiny Toon Adventures. He’s generally wildly joyful and prone to utter surreal nonsense. He creates his own bizarre world full of art and puns and foolishness and it’s beautiful and scary and confusing. Thank you for introducing me to surrealism and being a formative influence on me, Gogo Dodo. Here’s a drawing of what I imagine your skeletal structure to be.

Gogo’s father, Yoyo Dodo, first appeared in the visually fascinating and pretty damn offensive Porky in Wackyland (really aged like milk on the race front) in 1939. Yoyo Dodo was officially the last existing dodo. And Gogo Dodo is his son. Being something that by definition cannot exist is a pretty solid commitment to nonsense if I’ve ever seen one.

If Yoyo and Gogo and my father and I serve as anecdotal evidence, it would seem that gleeful malarkey gets passed down.

Taken with my Rebel K2 (film)

More trespassing at the abandoned Alabama Insane Hospital. A genuinely historical and spooky place to walk through, fraught with problems and mistreatment of innocent, vulnerable people.

Disclaimer: I know invalid is probably not a cool way to describe a human, but that was the word at the time of the functioning Alabama Insane Hospital.

Happy exploring, all. Cheers, R.
