The inspiration for this piece came from @colorcrushcreative – their luscious Picnic at Midnight palette was delightful to work with. I called this one Wind Through the Mountains in memory of my mom who recently passed. She grew up in the beautiful West Virginia mountains, and I can see a hint of mountain ridge in the lovely deep blue.
Joy, joy, joy – that is simply what I feel every time I look at this sweet little piece of new art. And yes, it’s called Flying Through the Air. And I can feel spring riding in on its coattails. #vlorimerart
Gotta love some creative time with these fluid inks. It is fascinating to watch the move and transform and to see what the end result will be. #vlorimerart
Hope you can join me this Sunday from 2-4PM for my Imagination Exhibit opening at the DuPage Art League (218 W. Front St., Wheaton). I’m so excited to present this collection of work. If you can’t make the opening, the exhibit will be up through March. #vlorimerart
“Divine Creative Spark” is on exhibit at Naperville Art League through next week. That creative spark can be an elusive thing from time to time, but I think that moment of magic is captured with this explosion of color. #vlorimerar
I love experimenting with new media! Playing with alcohol inks has been great fun and a wonderful learning experience. I’m mesmerized by the way the colors blend together and the textures that are formed. This new piece is called Emerging Oceans. #vlorimerart
Happy new year! I usually enjoy a more laid back January but this year I’m gearing up for two solo exhibits in the first few months of the year. Here’s my first new piece of 2018: Under Cover of Snow. It’s on exhibit at the DuPage Art League this month and received a Special Merit Award. Stop by and see it if you’re in the area. #vlorimerart
