Tweet L. D., Dark Guardian Of The Cretinous Flat Earthers


8x8" | acrylic, collage, graphite on canvas | $175 available here

Most of my paintings include a bird somewhere on the canvas--some are more obvious than others. Many are hidden in the scratchy background marks. 


There are several symbols that appear repeatedly in my work: tic-tac-toe games, ladders, chairs, moons, etc. But the bird? Well, he can represent so many things; a versatile little symbol, this guy. And, once upon a time, the only living thing allowed to tweet. 
The good ol’ days.

Morty, Patron Saint And Fiery Director Of Unthinkable Thoughts


8x8" | acrylic, collage, graphite on canvas | $175 available here


My new series is called “Saints & Sinners. The Dirty Little Secrets.” If you have followed along on my blog, you know that I spent many (tortured) years in Catholic school as a kid. ⁣

And one of the most fascinating parts of my Catholic education was learning about all the saints and angels. Especially the saints and angels that took a wrong turn and became sinners (my favorites). ⁣

So I thought it might be a fun and informative project to propose a few of my own Saints. And a bunch of those crafty Sinners!⁣

A little love note from me!


a few of my Instagram Posts


I just want to take a moment to thank all my faithful subscribers that have been with me all these years—12 years to be exact! Whew—that ’s a lot of paintings and posts!

As you may have noticed, I’m posting more frequently of late, to keep everyone updated on my  “Saints And Sinners” series. I’m painting about four new paintings every week and plan to publish a book and a calendar in November with all 50 paintings. (Yep, 50 paintings! Yikes!)

So, if that’s just a bit too many emails in your inbox I want to give you the option to follow along on my Instagram account (https://www.instagram.com/brendayorkart/). There you’ll find all the new paintings plus some behind the scenes stuff and of course, the occasional photo of Pearl, my studio dog (not too many, promise!).

It won’t hurt my feelings if you opt out of receiving the blog post emails and start following me on Instagram. However, I do release the new paintings on the blog before they reach Instagram. So if you want first dibs on a new painting, you’ll want to stay subscribed.

In any case, I just absolutely appreciate all of you that have found my art intriguing and entertaining enough to stay on the ride with me. Thanks a bunch!

And here’s to another 12 years! - Brenda

I'm Teaching A Workshop!




In this workshop we’ll go through very specific steps to identify points of inspiration from your favorite artists and then weave them all together to develop your own visual identity.

Here’s what past students have said:

“…game changer; great for direction and encouragement!”

“…entertaining, challenging and informative! Makes you open up.”

“Inspiring! It moved me to another level!”

The workshop is coming right up on October 5 and 6 at Jen Tough Gallery in Benecia, CA. Guaranteed to be fun. And to shake up your art practice…just a little bit.⁣

Questions? Send me an email at brendayork.art@gmail.com

Hope to see you in class!
