One of my favorite genres of art is Fantasy. Here are a couple examples of Fantasy art I've done.

The first -- I've always loved old Hollywood, the glitz and glamour, the gorgeous starlets and dashing men. One of my all-time favorite Hollywood on-screen couples is Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers -- watching them dance together in old movies is breathtaking. So I thought, the perfect fanstasy - Fred and Ginger, dancing on a moonlit lake. Here's the result -- I painted this back in 1986 and it still hangs in my studio today.

The other -- I've been mixing collage and painting to create a new altered fantasy art. This is the result -- not only mixing the media, but mixing the subject matter, mixing the mood, going for a certain feel. Do you feel anything when you see it? Would love to read your feedback!


  1. Love love love the dog in the water with the mermaid. Fantastic art work. Sea Witch

  2. LOVE the mermaid on the couch, with all the extras included in the painting! Awesome. Thanks for stopping by for Katie's shower. It was weird to have a party at my house and I wasn't here! Sorry I missed everyone.

    Take care, Sue

  3. Hi Lori! Always love your work.:) Hope you have a happy 4th...and that time DOES slow down. xo Lidy

  4. Hi Lori! Just wanted to drop by and let you know that I mentioned you in my blog. I'm selling an old crusty yellow mail box with the most beautiful roses on it, hand-painted by none other than your oh-so-talented self!

    I added a link to your blog. I didn't realized you had an etsy link as well. I'll try to go back and add that, too.


  5. Lori,
    I love this!!!! I can't wait to see more! You rock!
