A Way of Escape


© 2013 Debi Coleman

I like this piece.  I’m just not sure what it is.  🙂   Actually there’s a Bible verse that speaks of there always being a way of escape out of temptation and that’s what the little rope bridge reminds me of.  Again, this is on a gallery wrap canvas (20″ square) so the sides are painted as  part of the image and it doesn’t require a frame.   Thanks for looking.  See you tomorrow.

“Red” is a diptych (two canvases that combine to make one image).  It’s done on gallery wrap canvas which means the sides are painted as part of the image, so it doesn’t require a frame.  It’s very modern and the red is very strong.  I’m not sure if it shows as strong on the computer, the camera seemed to really struggle to capture the color.      It’s inspired by my love of macro photography and is definitely different from what I normally do.   Let me know what you think.

Under the Bed

What child isn’t worried about what’s under the bed?   This piece is intended to give them a fun answer.  Something’s going on just like they always thought, but there’s nothing scary there.   This piece is another in the  Escape from the Zoo series.   Like the other paintings and drawings in the series, the size differentials between the animals are purposely distorted, and the toys are classic ones.   Hope you like it.   No post on Sunday so I’ll see you again on Monday.


Most if not all artists can do many more types of work than what they are generally known for.  It’s the business end of art that forces artists to “specialize” and produce what is considered “a unified body of work”.  While it’s a great business model,  I think most of us find that particular mindset stifling.  So, for fun in this 25 day challenge you will see lots of different styles of artwork.  This piece is an acrylic landscape on standard canvas (which is the type that requires a frame).   Living in Oklahoma I find that I miss the pine forests of the North where I was raised.  I call this piece “Tranquility”.  Hope you like it.

A Challenge

Thanks for visiting.  I hope you like the new blog.

One of the latest things in the online artist community is a “challenge” where artists commit to produce/display a new piece everyday for a certain number of days.  I guess the theory is that a deadline is a good thing for us creative souls, and I think maybe they’re right.  Anyhow,  Tybi Studio is in the process of opening a new Etsy store (scheduled to debut late July or early August) and in anticipation of that new beginning we are taking on one of those challenges.  Everyday for the next 25 days you can check our blogs for new work.  Hope you enjoy.  Let us know what you think.

Here’s a picture of the studio where hopefully this challenge will be met.  🙂
