Strawberry Meet Up

Standard

 $60.00 USD (8x8in on stretched canvas)

My schedule got shifted around a little today and I ended up with some time to be in my own studio during nap time!  It’s been a couple weeks since I have painted small so it felt good to use such little paint – hah!

And my daughter walked out and saw the painting after her nap and said, “oh, nummy!”  So there’s that.

Taking a Break from the Mural

Standard

Here’s the latest update on this year’s mural progress; I’m taking a couple week break to work on another project for the city that is due the end of this month > check out the Find Yourself(ie) show at the Lincoln Center starting September 1st.

Another little helper was with me last week.  Thanks G!

What a Crab

Standard

 $55.00 USD (8x8in on canvas panel)

Um, this describes my attitude today.  Because my month is so busy with art again I get a schedule I ‘need’ to keep in my head, and if my daughter’s naps don’t line up with it I lose it.  I have some repenting to do when she wakes up today.

Nevertheless, I painted this guy while she slept this afternoon.  And I’ve been singing “shiny” from Moana in my head since I started painting.

More Mural Progress

Standard

I’m covering some major ground these days!  I was excited to get some of these clouds in because before it was a red pheonix on the orange background color – didn’t pop and the public must have been wondering what the heck I was doing.

Really pleased with the results after last night’s work.

I was also talked into participating in the upcoming show at the Lincoln Center – Find Your(selfie) – artists will paint 9foot by 9foot backdrops with scenery that will allow brilliant selfie taking.  I originally thought I wouldn’t be able to do it since I have so many big projects already this month, but alas, I guess I’m squeezing it in!  Wish me luck.  Come check that show out the month of September in the gallery at the Lincoln Center, or the opening reception First Friday September 1st 5-7pm.

Giant Space Chicken

Standard

(4ftx4ft on gallery stretched canvas)

I have to admit, I never thought this would be the title of one of my paintings.  Ha!  I’m glad I practiced this one before the large guy because this project just fell off my brush – I had to go ask my husband if it looked okay because it was so easy I thought surely I did something wrong.

If you’re a local you can check this guy out in person in the new restaurant taking the place of Enzio’s downtown at the end of the month.  Local artists Allie Ogg will also have some of her art there as well, what a treat!
