Who doesn't love the sight of a vintage bike with a basket full of flowers? I'm going to be riding around on this when I'm older with groceries in back baskets and flowers in the front. Info on this painting can be found here. Scroll below to see the inspiration image.
Along with finishing our stairs and preparing to build 3 large window frames this weekend for my triptych (pictures for both projects coming soon), I have been working on this girl... I have so many ideas I only wish my hands could work faster.
I must be really anxious for spring. More details can be found in the Etsy listing.
Excited to have finished this painting earlier in the week...
and also this one!
Recently completed, 36" x 48" acrylic on stretched canvas includes hand cut letters with inspiring sentiment.
It felt so good working on these recently. The finished pieces feel so positive, colorful and uplifting. I had previously painted canvas sheets red, medium pink, and light pink and cut out the shapes. Laying the shapes on a new canvas in different patterns (see below) proved tiring. Although the patterns were nice it didn't feel right. So, with the shapes put aside, I pulled them out to use as the wings in these paintings. Now it feels right.
I have come to love and admire the works of Sally Trace and Destiny Womack. I even went as far as emailing them separately to see if I could learn their technique. Their response to that email was a good lesson in itself. Artists have their own techniques, ways of mixing mediums, unique processes, etc., that it would have been impossible for them to explain how to recreate their "look". That wouldn't be fair to them either unless they were teaching a class. So, I was left on my own. I still have no idea how they create their paintings but I do know I have found my own way, and I might add it was by a happy accident.
I have recently been incorporating graphic design into mixed media pieces. The composition is drawn on the computer and then translated onto the piece of wood with paint, paper and inks. I really like the way these are coming out. This is "Beauty Beneath the Layers". I love anything aged, vintage and layered so these are a perfect way to reflect what could be my style.
I just finished this recently. This is my absolute favorite flower - the gerbera daisy - in all colors! red gerbera | original acrylic on stretched canvas | size 36" x 24"
This is another painting I recently worked on, "petite vase". I have to do my painting in the evenings and on weekends since I'm busy with 3 children and work part time during the week. I would love to be able to do it full time someday. When you love to do something so much you just find time to do it.
Have a great weekend!
