Wall-able and Wearable Art!

I start­ed paint­ing back in the 1960s, but real­ly start­ed tak­ing it seri­ous­ly in Art Class­es at good old Elmhurst College.

That was the first time some­one (my paint­ing prof) asked me, “Can’t you see the colours in the shadows?”

Over the course of sev­er­al years, I began to see it. My art­work ever since has been an in-depth study of the inter­play of light and shadow. 

I’ve writ­ten exten­sive­ly about Fig­u­ra­tive Art and Con­tem­po­rary Art. It’s sim­ply the way I “see” the world. and tak­ing the time to actu­al­ly put brush to can­vas has kept me sane (OK, as sane as I can be…) 

For the last sev­er­al years, we’ve trav­elled (all that stopped, of course, with Covid.) We spent 6 months in Cos­ta Rica, and 3 months in Spain. I men­tion this because I have paint­ing stuff in Cos­ta Rica, but not in Spain.

My cre­ative needs weren.t being met in in Spain, but luck­i­ly I’d cre­at­ed a paint­ing of three tra­di­tion­al Cos­ta Rican dancers, (called, of course, “3 Dancers”) and almost imme­di­ate­ly received a note request­ing a print of the painting.

That was some­thing I had­n’t con­sid­ered. But off I went, and soon, I’d cre­at­ed this store. I start­ed with prints, but then dis­cov­ered the joys of POD (Print on Demand) print­ing on clothes.

I real­ly got into it. Soon, I had a col­lec­tion of wear­able art (and I coined the term “wall-able” art for the prints.) 

I discovered that I really like designing clothes.

Who knew?

Here, you’ll find Wall Art, arti­cles of cloth­ing and acces­sories, and even a few house­hold items. Each item fea­tures one of my paint­ings or pho­tographs. I’ve worked to be sure that the image is bold and atten­tion grab­bing wall-able or wear­able art.

The links below lead to my favourite cat­e­gories, but there’s a lot more to see. Use the broad menus above for more exam­ples of my wear­able art.

And if you want to know what’s new, give this a click!

Have a look around. I’m sure you’ll find some­thing you love.

Amazing look, feel, fit

I have sev­er­al pair of Wayne’s store’s leg­gings, and I love them. Just received these a week ago.
The fit is per­fect, the colours are bold, and the oth­er pairs I have haven’t fad­ed in the months I’ve had them.
And then, there’s the fab­ric! It’s soft, com­fort­able, and breath­able.
I could­n’t be happier!”

Cool! Glad you like them!

Los Flores” is a lovely statement of a bathing suit

Rat­ed 5 out of 5

So, this is kind of a mul­ti-part review, as I own three of the bathing suits, and I decid­ed to review them all! The design on the “Los Flo­res” bathing suit is tak­en from a Cos­ta Rican flower. The black and white motif is ele­gant, and the flow­ers draw the eye!
But here’s what you real­ly need to know. I took the bathing suits with me to Cos­ta Rica for SIX MONTHS. Each suit was in the (chlo­ri­nat­ed) pool at least once a day. After 6 months, I can see no stretch­ing, and absolute­ly no fad­ing!
This bathing suit is sim­ple and under­stat­ed, and I love the fit and feel.”

A real attention getter–“Dia de Los Muertos” bathing suit

So, this is kind of a mul­ti-part review, as I own three of the bathing suits, and I decid­ed to review them all! The “Dia de Los Muer­tos” bathing suit real­ly gets atten­tion. I’ve had noth­ing but com­pli­ments! The colour and detail of the main “doll” is amaz­ing. (I looked on Wayne’s paint­ing site… the paint­ing is amaz­ing too!)
But here’s what you real­ly need to know. I took the bathing suits with me to Cos­ta Rica for SIX MONTHS. Each suit was in the (chlo­ri­nat­ed) pool at least once a day. After 6 months, I can see no stretch­ing, and absolute­ly no fad­ing! This is a suit that gets atten­tion. And ques­tions. So be pre­pared to be wear­ing a con­ver­sa­tion starter. Oh! Let me just say that the suit fits per­fect­ly! I’m glad I went with the sizes on the info page. And the fab­ric is soft to the touch, even after repeat­ed dunk­ings and washings.”

So glad you like them! Keep an eye out for new designs.

Love the colour, fit, and fabric — “Swims With The Fishes.”

So, this is kind of a mul­ti-part review, as I own three of the bathing suits, and I decid­ed to review them all!
My favourite is “Swims With The Fish­es.” I can’t believe the colour and detail of the lion fish.
But here’s what you real­ly need to know. I took the bathing suits with me to Cos­ta Rica for SIX MONTHS. Each suit was in the (chlo­ri­nat­ed) pool at least once a day.
After 6 months, I can see no stretch­ing, and absolute­ly no fad­ing! And don’t get me start­ed on the feel and fit. The fab­ric was and is soft, yet fits like a glove.
If you like a suit that’s dra­mat­ic and eye catch­ing, and that fea­tures the nat­ur­al beau­ty of the lion fish, this suit is for you.”

DBM

Response from Fig­u­ra­tive Artist Wayne C. Allen

So glad you like it! The fab­ric is amaz­ing­ly durable. And the suits are fun to design.

Wow! It looks as good in real life as it does on the web­site. Fab­ric is absolute­ly gor­geous. Prob­a­bly the nicest feel­ing bathing suit fab­ric I have ever owned! And the art work is stun­ning. This will cer­tain­ly be a suit that gets me some looks!”
