I may take a blog writing class this summer. Most of my posts are image heavy, which is the way I like it, but I know readers want to get to know the 'writer', or in this case, the 'artist' more. My only explanation is that writers use words and artists use images to tell stories. This is another painting I finished recently, "Abstract Garden". More info on this painting here.
I had so much fun doing this one and will be hard to part with because it is hung in my living room! The original and print is available here.
After a great, long weekend off from work and spent with family I can show you a new painting I recently completed. Maybe because it's Spring but it seems that I've wanted to do nothing but paint flowers. Or maybe it's because I feel like we've done nothing in our yard but weed and flowers are just waiting to be planted! Enjoy your Monday!
I cannot say enough about these paintings - they simply speak for themselves.
Every time I revisit them I am in awe. Are they photographs or paintings?
"Larry McMurtry's ground breaking novel The Last Picture Show accurately represents the cultural background of Teresa Elliott's birthplace in Weatherford, Texas. Her deepest connections start there and always seem to end in the same place. Whatever she is painting, the roots of it connect to the same tree."
Once again, I am leaving this post stunned. Thank you for your beautiful work Teresa.
I spent a lot of time with my husband and children the weekend of Mother's Day but my husband also gave me a lot of free time to paint. That was really the best gift of all (besides him also doing the grocery shopping and cooking!). I was able to finalize some previous paintings I had started and also start new pieces! I have been having so much fun with different kinds of inks and ink washes. My oldest daughter even worked on one of her own this weekend while I was working on one of mine. Come see the progress of some of my other work on my Facebook page.

connection to body, mind and spirit."
This is the first time working with inks and I just love it! It reminds me very much of watercolor. Enjoy!
"i am a girl who believes in the everyday simple. i love sharing
empowering stories through each girl i paint. stories that we
each tuck away in the layers of our days, sometimes just needing
a little reminder that it is okay to come out and play."
