I'm so intrigued by mixed media art, I thought I would give it a go. This one includes acrylic, oils,
oil pastels, charcoal, and fine glitter accenting the flowers and the tower. I designed the dress myself. How do you like it? Now I just need to go to Michael's to buy some fun stencil for my next piece!
I finished this piece on day 4, Valentine's Day, appropriately! I listed it on Facebook and had it sold in
3 hours! It's always so exciting when that happens and I'm left wondering if I can do it again. Being consistent is not always easy. I recently had a discussion with a fellow artist about this subject. It is one of the most important aspect of success in this business, but being an artist, wanting to "express" my feelings, consistency can be challenging. This is when hard work and determination plays an important role. So…with all that being said, we'll see what I come up with next.
Will I be able to do it again? Stay tuned to see! Are you being consistent? Any tips?
Fresh off the easel! Well...actually it's still on it. This one was done with a palette knife and brushes in oil. I used a Ray Mar hard panel board on this one and it an 11x14 inch.
I've been planning this series for a while now and excited to get started! There will be 10 when it's complete but that might take me a while. I have three commissions in the works now and am still trying to complete the 30 in 30 Day Challenge by Leslie Saeta.
This new figure series was inspired by a blog I found via Facebook. I thought my daughter would like it...so I "liked" it. Turns out I'm the one that liked it. It's called Running in Wedges. Nicole Alyse is a New York City,personal style blogger and vintage buyer. She not just beautiful,also has great hair and an amazing photographer. One day a post popped up and I was inspired to paint her so I was thrilled she said yes, and have been anxious to start the series ever since. It will consist of a series of 10,small format,somewhat abstract figures of vintage fashions.
If you've been following for a while you may remember how excited I was to have my daughter be my muse, only to discover I'm too attached to the paintings to sell them. Now I'm happy to have found Nicole's blog,and my new muse!...Maybe someday...when I'm famous...I will be able to afford a live model, but until then, thank you Nicole!

This is my latest impressionist oil painting. For now it;s going to be titled something like Girl Sitting. Any suggestions are welcome! I'll have it listed on Etsy later this afternoon but was hoping to get a little feedback before I did. Your comments are always appreciated!

Revisiting my vintage dress paintings the other day inspired me to do a large one. The dress I used for reference was a vintage prom dress or maybe a wedding dress but I updated it a little with the floral appliqués that I love so much in today's bridal styles. I love to watch "Say Yes To The Dress" and am so inspired by the dresses on there. I know, I'm a dork...but I just love that show. I also love weddings and would get remarried every year if I could! I am really happy with how this painting turned out. I had been wanting to do something like this for a long time but I think I wasn't ready until now.
Joining the party at My Romantic Home Show and Tell Friday-
so many great links there!
She just reminds me of Spring so I'm calling her "Spring 1". The "1" because I might do more like this.
If you've been following my art for awhile then you know I'm not that creative when it comes to titles.
It's even a chore to title my blog posts sometimes!
I hope everyone is having a great week. Mine is going great. I managed to find the perfect pair of white linen capris for my trip (among other things) And the best thing was, when I got to the checkout counter
I found out they were 1/2 off! So I got another pair.
We should be announcing the winner by Friday so please check back.
