I am so happy to be spending so much time in my studio preparing for my upcoming show. It feels fantastic to be making some personal work so many days of the week. Here is a piece I finished earlier in the week. It’s called Constellation, and it’s little at just 5×7 inches!

Have a great weekend, friends. “See you” Monday.

I’m Having a Solo Show (It’s Been Awhile)

02/05/14

d0d1cd088dc411e3b6a7126315c1ffe7_8

+++

Friends, I am so happy to announce that I will be having a solo show of my paintings and some other mixed media pieces at Marion & Rose’s Workshop right here in the town of Oakland, opening May 2, 2014. This is the first solo show of my work since November 2012, and I’m pretty excited to be working on it.

I’ve begun a new body of work (in progress, above, though most of these paintings will look much different when they are finished). I’m hoping to make between 15-25 pieces in all at various sizes and price points.

If you are local and would like to come to the opening, I hope you will mark your calendars! For those of you who are not local, the work will be available for purchase online.

I’ll be sharing the work as I make it, so stay tuned for more.

Happy Wednesday!

A Painting, In Phases

01/15/14

ab12

+++

For two days now while I’ve been staying at the ocean, I worked on the painting above. It is 3 feet by 3 feet, acrylic on canvas. This painting took me two days (with many breaks!) to complete. I photographed the painting in different phases as I was making it. Take a look at how it started, how it evolved and where it ended up in this slideshow. You will notice that towards the end of a painting, the changes are much more subtle.

Music by Sigur Ros. (This will keep looping through until the song is finished, so feel free to hit the pause button to end after you’ve watched it go through once or twice!)

Psst: My Etsy Shop has reopened, and I am offering two new small abstract paintings for sale. Take a look.

Happy Wednesday!

New Abstract

12/04/13

8e63f09c5ba411e3886312b8d6dd5f3b_8-1

I have been a bit obsessed with painting abstracts lately. You may remember early in 2013 (almost a year ago) I proclaimed I was going to dive head first into abstract painting, and once I started I haven’t been able to stop. I only wish I had more time to paint like this all the time (note to self: make more time). Above is my latest, 36×36 inches, acrylic on canvas.  I’m going to spend the month of January painting abstracts and making abstract mixed media works in my studio. Sort of like a stay-art-cation/home artist residency.

This one sold already, but I am taking commissions for abstracts, so please feel free to email me if you are interested. The pricing depends on size and I do require a 50% deposit to begin. Let me know if you are interested and we can go from there.

Have a great Wednesday!
