Original Painting of Vintage inspired French Woman


Here's the second in my new series of vintage inspired women. I used both a brush and palette knife for this modern impressionist painting. I called it Attente, as I imagine her anxiously waiting for her date arrive.   It's available on Etsy. Thanks for looking, I hope you like it! If you haven't already, I love for you to join me on Facebook. I like to post my lasted painting on there to get feedback before I list them. 

The model is Nicole, this very cool style blogger from New York. Her blog, Running in Wedges, features fashion photos of Nicole, taken by her amazing photographer You can find her blog here. http://www.nicolealyse.com. 



Tiny Homes Need Tiny Art

I'm a fan of these tiny homes not just because they're adorable but because they're economical and good for our environment. I am currently living in a 3 bedroom 2 bath house (renting) and know I'd have to get rid of a lot of clutter in order to feel comfortable in something this small. What can you do without? What do we REALLY need? I think it would be so freeing to know that I could literally pick up and move to a new place on a whim. I tend to get unsettled staying in one place for a long time. It's been about two years now since I moved back in Weaverville and am feeling that "need to move" feeling coming on. Maybe I was a gypsy in a past life! I don't know...but I love these little homes. It would be so much fun to decorate this space with art! Little small format art would be the perfect addition to this quaint and cozy, portable home.



30 Paintings in 30 Days!

they're all sold or in private collections now

I learned quite a bit from this challenge. As usual, I skipped around in subjects, sizes, medium, just about everything. I learned that I need to focus on one thing! I was using this challenge to explore acrylics and figured out how to
achieve the look of oils! I was also able to paint a few subjects that I had never painted before, like the waterlilies.
I'll still be using oils but am happy to have another
less expensive alternative. 

Thanks for following and supporting me through this challenge! 
I can't wait for next year's:)
