Alana is on a rampage making funky-fun, one-of-a-kind artwork that is as fun to touch as it is to look at. Alana loves to layer textures and colors, patterns and splatters, pulling imagery out of the worshak-like terrains. Alana says it takes her back to her childhood when art was fun, with no rules, like cloud watching. She allows serendipity to take the superior role guiding her in the creative process and always encouraging her to let go of control and flow with the fun and frivolity of happy accidents. It’s a kind of “hands-on/ hands-off” balancing act. The results are always surprising and extremely gratifying. “What is really fun,” she says, “is to incorporate some abstract, some non-objective and some small doses of realism in one piece of artwork. Your eyes travel through the painting stirring the imagination and logical processes. This allows the viewer to linger longer. The mind has more back and forth dialogue and stimulus than it would with an average straightforward painting that is mentally and emotionally processed instantaneously at a glance. These are the visual and mental creative adventures that travel outside the realm of photography and digital sterility. Nothing transports a grown-up back to their youth like getting in the paint with both hands! Paint-covered hands, twigs, feathers and any non-traditional tool can revert the most uptight adult artist back to their childhood where their love for art first began.”

One-of-a-kind paintings by Alana Solomon give any space added color and luminosity, expressing perk and personality to an otherwise bland habitat. Alana loves to use metallics that catch the light and flicker, “winking” at you as you pass through the room. You will enjoy interacting with your collection every time you and your visitors enter the room. The artwork also changes with the lighting throughout the day and evening. In natural light and artificial light, these paintings are constantly changing and taking on different moods.

The framed custom artwork in the lobby of Wilmington Rubber & Gasket have a wacky coastal theme of whimsical fish and sea creatures working in the shop cutting gaskets and hoses. The cool cats are the customers waiting for their wares.WilmRubber&GasketFish@Work

The second painting includes the same sea creatures playing in a jazz band after work for an audience of cool cats. The audience is definitely hungry for more!WilmRubber&GasketFishBand

WilmRubber&GasketVanitySideThe bathroom at Wilmington Rubber & Gasket also got a makeover from  standard fixtures to custom painted finishes that definitely jazz them up. Painting is so much more affordable than calling the plumber and tearing out cabinets and vanities, etc. Most anything can reap the benefits of a paintbrush in the right hands.

Dump the trash not the furniture!

KarenSadlerCabinetInteriorDo you have a piece of furniture that you think is ruined? Did you have a flood, or a bad dog, or a not so handy handyman? Before you head off to the city dump or pull your back out heading for the curb, call Alana, the furniture doctor and get a second opinion!KarenSadlerCabinetBaseW:banner

Call Alana at Just Faux Fun, Inc. in Wilmington, NC. You can even email Alana a photo of the “victim” and she can give you a “diagnosis” via email. Alana has fixed many, many wonderful things that had mishaps, termites, destructive pets,  children, hurricanes, etc.. Alana can patch, bondo, glue, faux finish to match missing veneers, missing carving, missing knobs, missing moldings and much, much more!

KarenSadlerCabinetBaseClosed

Perhaps your furniture or furnishings are family heirlooms and it breaks your heart to think of trashing them. Alana will bring her magic paintbrush and work wonders in restoring it to it’s former glory. She can match wood grains of all kinds, french provincial and french country style paint finishes, marquetry, mother of pearl, real and faux marble, fine painted designs, gold leaf and metallic patinas. You name it, she has even matched army camouflage, malachite, burl wood, leather, burlap, rattan, faux snakeskin, and mother of pearl!

It never hurts to see how little it may cost to save your wonderful piece from the graveyard of furniture wreckage. And what a great conversation piece to captivate your guests with the stories of battle scars, massacres and resurrection from an near-fated furniture fatale!KarenSadlerCabinetInteriorAfter

The proof is in the pudding. Judge for yourself and see if this fabulous cabinet was worth saving from the landfill. These clients were very satisfied and will enjoy the second life of their long-loved cabinet!KarenSadlerCabinetAfterW:banner

Perhaps the Painted Personality Pet Portrait?

SnoweySometimes a client would rather remember the “essence” of a pet’s personality SugarCuberather than the photo accuracy of the particular animal’s photo-realistic characteristics. We all know the lay of our particular pet’s fur, the twinkle in his eye, the crooked expression, the missing fang, the bent tail, etc. Paintings are a chance to do what the camera cannot do! Sometimes it would be nice to remember a beloved pet in a wacky-whimsical, colorful, less realistic way.

Shorty

Interpretations in paint by Alana’s Art will capture the idealistic quirkiness of your pet’s one-of-a-kind personality,  preserving that image in textural, colorful, sparkly, stylistic way. These kinds of portraits make your heart smile every time you pass by. Your friends and visitors will be drawn to the painting over and over and need no explanation of what a character you best beast friend must be!

Call Alana for a portrait of your pet’s personality! USA 910 232 5427.SoloFramedW:Logo
