As an artist, you try not to fall in love with every piece you make. Sometimes, it’s hard not to do just that.
For me, I fell in love with this piece, Cathedral. Some pieces that I work on I have to plan out, but this piece really grew organically. I love the motion and soft, subtle colors playing against each other.
I finished this piece earlier this year, but it’s one that I like to keep coming back to. It’s a restful spot in a whimsical forest – and who doesn’t need that at least every once in a while. What is your restful spot?
I recently created this piece for a local exhibit with the theme, Celebrate Art! I know that art is many different things for different people, but I think on some level, art nourishes all of us in some way. I know it has me. The sheer act of creativity, and working with my hands to create a piece of art, has been nourishing, freeing, celebratory, and simply brings me happiness each and every time I create. I’d love to hear from you and know how art has nourished you – email@example.com.
I’m in love with gray lately – and abstracts – so this seemed piece kind of happened organically. Recently finished this piece called Ancient Lands. Would love to know your thoughts. This one’s available for purchase. Just email me – firstname.lastname@example.org – if you’re interested.
I’m excited to be in Hinsdale for my first outdoor fair of the season! I hope you’ll stop by this lovely setting and enjoy some gorgeous art and nice weather. Fair runs Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. Below is Garden of Miracles, one of my newest pieces that I’ll be showing this weekend. Stop by!
Thought it might be interesting for you to write a little bit about my process in creating a new piece. I usually always work on vellum artist paper or artist panel. I generally start with a pencil or ink sketch and then start to lay in color. So, here are Steps 1 & 2 for my new garden scene.
