This is my newest completed painting. In it, I responded to many ponderings on the way we recognize one another as human animals. How we coalesce because of another’s connection to our lives. I will leave it at that, as there are so many ways to travel from those conversational/meditative starting points. Our Faces Come Because You Look For Us, 2017, watercolor, ink and pastel, 27 1/8″ x 19″, archival paper, unframed. You can view more at my shop. Enjoy.

Tonight, The Women Who Paint will again be having a group show at the Artery/Studio 6 based around the Art Detour 29 theme The Selfie. The artists included are Charmagne Coe, Carla Keaton, Cindy Schnackel, Lucretia Torva, Marisa Hall Valdez and Randy Zucker. I had to contemplate this theme for a bit… as I am not wont to think of myself as a solo self, but rather, I am me because of all of us. Universality. When I chose the works for the show, I saw my image in the works as me as having been affected by others. And, they are of you too if you see yourself there.

The Selfie Show 
The Artery/Studio 6, 623 Indian School Road

Opening Reception:
First Friday, March 3rd, 6 – 10 pm

Art Detour Hours:
Third Friday, March 17th, 6 – 10 pm
Saturday, March 18th, 11 am – 5 pm
Sunday, March 19th, 11 am – 5 pm

A little more about Art Detour 29:

“Art Detour is expanding from two to four days in 2017, and will feature a diverse slate of activities created by local artists and art venues to celebrate the growing, vibrant Phoenix arts scene. The event is produced by Artlink Inc., in partnership with the City of Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture, Downtown Phoenix, AZ and Artlink Articipants.”

This is the recent drawing, Write the Words’ on Chapters’ Mouths. 

Last month’s Small Works Love Show at The Artery was an intimate exhibition of works by my artist group, Ladies Who Paint. This gallery is located in the heart of Phoenix. It is home to the art collective at Studio 6; there art studios are upstairs… and when you visit, do take the time to see them! This was the first of many shows to come at this location throughout 2017. Below’s picture is courtesy of MJ Deen.



Here is my most recent painting. I so enjoyed the creation of this biophilic and expressive work. I continue to explore the automatistic, spontaneous pulse of the narrative that unfolds when I paint or draw each element. And as well, I seek to combine the spontaneous gestures with my personal reflections on nature and life at large. You can also see this work at my website.

The Verse Of Flora’s Gate, watercolor, ink and pastel, 14 5/8″ x 11 1/4″.

I’ve joined a group of Arizona artists who meet monthly. We enjoy discussing technique and latest community arts news, planning painting/drawing meetups and collaborate on exhibits.  12 of us will now be presenting our work in The Artery, a gallery run by a local artist collective, through a variety of group and solo shows. For February, we’ve chosen a love-themed group exhibition. Join us this first Friday!

I have received an invitation to a surrealism group show, Figure So Surreal, in May. This will be a large gathering of surrealists — some whose work I’ve followed for many years. “A journey into the minds of over 3 dozen talented artists as they dance with images of a surrealist world. From Arizona and beyond!”, writes Travis Fields, curator. I’m very excited to be a part. You can visit Facebook to RSVP or learn more. I’ll have more details as the date gets closer.

Last night’s group show held a lot of excited people on a crisp Arizona winter night. {9} The Gallery presented the opening reception of Tiny Works | Tiny Dances II, featuring over 100 artists whose work is sized 12″ x 12″ or under. The show will continue till December 16th. If you missed it, come back in two weeks for Third Friday, December 16th. 1229 Grand Ave, Phoenix, Arizona 85007. I will be attending then too. My following four works are included.

When I arrived at 6 sharp, the first piece of four, Inspirit, had already sold, and so was the case with many of my fellow artists’ works. The space filled up quickly with a happy, enthusiastic crowd of art lovers and it was a good time to be with old friends and new. It’s an honor to exhibit alongside talented Arizona artists such as Sky Black, Dan Pederson, Cindy Schnackel and Onna Voellmer.  Emotionally expressive modern dances were performed by Nicole L. Olson, Elisa Cavallero and Travis Richardson at the gallery’s center. Thank you to all who came out to visit! Here are some snaps I took along the way.

This is my most recently completed painting. To me, it feels like a joyful celebration that rises up amidst a very challenging year. Swell The Life, 2016, 16 7/16″ x 13 1/8″, watercolor, ink and pastel.

I have another painting, The Gift, that will continue showing in Herberger Gallery at Arizona Center’s Home For The Holidays exhibition through January 16th. Stop by at 455 N. 3rd Street, Suite 1200 to see this and many other Arizona artists’ works. Connie and A O Tucker have done a lovely job of curating and hanging this show for the winter season.

Limited edition giclée prints are available. Each is based on an original painting I created in watercolor, ink and pastel. I like to create small volumes to preserve the value of each one. They are professionally printed on 255 gsm acid free, 100% cotton rag Somerset Velvet paper (similar look and feel to watercolor paper) using Epson’s archival UltraChrome pigment inks. Each print is signed and numbered on the front. You can view them here!

Original paintings, such as the above When the Lines Disappear, I Am Not Afraid With You are seen at my website as well.

Earlier this year, I was honored as Art and Art Deadline’s February Featured Artist. I thoroughly enjoyed participating in the interview conducted by its talented creator, Rachel Gibson. At this site you can read about artists who are pushing the boundaries of contemporary art. It is also an invaluable resource for artists looking for reputable opportunities for publication and exhibition. If you enjoy my work and feel so inclined after reading my interview, please leave a comment. Artists who receive the most comments by December 31st will be awarded AAD’s Featured Artist of 2014. Thank you!

I started a painting last weekend. It seems to be actually creating itself very quickly. Perhaps I shall finish it by this coming weekend. Peek:

I’ve been listening a lot to Damien Rice’s new album, My Favorite Faded Fantasy. Damien’s voice and words slice, like velvet and talons, to the bone of it all. I dare you to listen without tears. If you’ve loved and hoped, you know. Here is “I Don’t Want to Change You”.

Good Saturday to you all and Happy Small Business Saturday! I am offering 30% off for one more day on my entire catalog of paintings and limited edition giclée prints! If you have been waiting to collect my art, this is a wonderful time to do it. Visit my website and peruse: charmagnecoe.com

My paintings are created in watercolor, ink and pastel. Each is an original expression, fantastical, otherworldly and inner-worldly. I began experimenting with the three media in 2008 and never looked back. I choose framing that is archival and to the highest standards of conservation.

I am introducing two new volumes of limited edition giclée prints: Diving, Mining to Meet You and When the Lines Disappear, I Am Not Afraid With You. These are unframed, archival giclee prints professionally created on 255 gsm acid free, 100% cotton rag Somerset Velvet paper (similar look and feel to watercolor paper) using Epson’s archival UltraChrome pigment inks. Each print is signed and numbered on the front. I am happy to assist you in selecting additional framing as well with Hidden Light’s The Framing Department.

I recently moved my studio to another location within my home – where I create best – and uncovered several earlier, unframed works which are more primitive and quiet. I added a new page to my website to make these available for purchase. They are very dear. These are included in my sale.

My Society 6 store offers open edition prints of my selected drawings. Also available are other lovely objets d’art created with these images. Drawing is a great passion of mine and an integral part of my creative process. I love the unbidden nature of moving a pen across a paper and always feeling surprised by what arrives! It’s so fun to see these drawings in new formats and able to be viewed during daily life as functional art!

If you have any questions or would just like to say hello, please feel free to write me here, at my Facebook page or at my website’s contact page.

As you can see, my mind’s been humming with new ideas… but now, it’s really time to get back to my (new) studio and continue drawing and painting. 🙂 Take care and thanks again for coming by to see what I’ve been up to!

I have finished a new work. This is “Crave Aurora”. 12″ x 13″, watercolor, ink and pastel. You can also view it at my website, charmagnecoe.com.

Just a reminder, I have created limited edition prints of the fantastical painting, Hinder Be Go. The volume is only 50 large. You can contact me here or go to my Etsy shop for more information.

Here is Steel and Fragile Hopes, my submission for Illustration Friday’s theme, “Egg”.

Even when a painting doesn’t come together successfully, I will snip out a fragment I can’t part with. I like her. 🙂

I have been working on thumbnails for a science fiction theme. I chose the novel, The Child Garden, by Geoff Ryman. The protagonists, Milena and Rolfa, are ideal characters for creative inspiration. The two live in a genetically-controlled world in which viruses are used to educate the masses. Milena, who is immune to the hive mind’s viruses, falls in love with a genetically modified polar she-bear, Rolfa. Together, they are a subversive force against the social conformity.

The Child Garden, by Geoff Ryman

Below are some simple preliminary sketches.

This is another unrelated drawing I did a while back, but I would love to dovetail some of its elements because it seems so harmonious with the chosen theme.

Here is a drawing I submitted this week for Illustration Friday‘s topic, “Swim”. It’s titled Past the Breakers.

Past the Breakers, drawing by Charmagne Coe

I’ve been on a beach vacation which completely spoiled me rotten. Just love the change of geography. Instead of high desert forest, there was lush, green flora and ocean. Awww. It does the head good to be in a different place. Here are some drawings from my travels and this morning.

Every year, our town puts on a wonderful dining event called Taste of Flagstaff.  All proceeds benefit the Victim/Witness Services. This year, I am honored to donate a framed print of Ephemeral and turning, #4/50. For more information, visit here.

Here is my weekly Illustration Friday submission. Their topic is “Remedy” and my illustration is titled Antidote.

During a hike in Torrey Pines, San Diego, I took some pics of these seaside plants. The wheels are turning in my head… it would be nice to incorporate their delicate and geometric patterns into my drawings and paintings.

So now it’s back to my studio. I’ve had some paintings in-progress I need to wrap up. Soon.

Today I was smitten by the new Illustration Friday topic:  Swept. I had many ideas the moment I read it and started right away to create thumbnails and word associations.  Yesterday I bought several paper pads of varying sizes, so that added a lot of variety in terms of texture, color saturation, etc. This first picture is my final choice and it is titled, “Water swept”.

These are some of the other sketches and micro paintings which resulted from this morning.

I am currently having the #4/50 limited edition print of “Ephemeral and turning” framed. It will be auctioned at Taste of Flagstaff, a fine dining event to raise awareness and funding for Flagstaff’s local Victim Witness Services. I will post more about that in a couple of weeks. If you are interested in more information, please contact me.


My head was spinning after Los Angeles (in a good way). I really enjoyed meeting new people there and experiencing what makes the LA art scene unrivaled. Now  I am back to the quiet of painting and drawing and unleashing imaginations that have felt cooped up.  This is a new work just finished:  “Foragers”, 10″ x 9″, watercolor, ink and pastel.

I’ve also released a very small run of 50 limited edition prints: “Ephemeral and turning”. They are available at Etsy.

Today, this little face appeared. Winsome, sad … maybe his heart was broken for the first time and he doesn’t know what to do. Or something like that.

Here is a little painting in response to Illustration Friday’s topic:  Safari. I had initially imagined a jungle scene, but somehow things grew darker and the character became more unfamiliar. I wasn’t sure whether he should be the one who was scaring or scared.  And so.

I was helping out at a book sale and spotted Grendel, by John Gardener. Hadn’t read it. Have you? Now it’s on the pile for summer.

Okay everyone. I gotta get some soup on. Bye.
