It's been awhile everyone! How are we holding up? After a brief health hiatus, I am excited to be back to painting, selling original artwork and prints, and planning a new visitor studio space/gallery! I am also excited to share that Shoutout Arizona recently interviewed me in this feature article. Please check it out! Stay safe!
So many new things to talk about! Let’s get started!
First, check out my two new paintings! Tangled is available as a print in any material. I sold the original at the Masterpiece Art Exhibition. Yay! Nana is available as a print and original. It’s my new favorite because of the colors and iridescence of the painting. Go to www.galaxypaintings.com to view and shop.
A good friend of mine volunteers every year to help put together the Arizona Humane Society charity event, called “Compassion with Fashion.” It takes place every year in March. This year they were asking for art donations. Here is the story of Evander…
The Savor Art Showcase was a very well attended show-there were hundreds of people! It was amazing to see the community embrace new, local artists! It was so much fun meeting so many people and discussing my artwork with them. I loved meeting all of the new artists and appreciated the variety and creativity they brought to the show. Below are a few pictures of my artwork and of the showcase.
While visiting Charlotte for a friend’s wedding, I explored a gallery with my husband and mother-in-law. It was right down the road from our hotel and we wanted to kill some time and check out downtown. The Sonia and Isaac Luski Gallery was in the Luski-Gorelick Center for Philanthropy, Foundation for the Carolinas and it featured a variety of works from many artists. I was particularly drawn to the glass pieces created by contemporary artist, Jon Kuhn.
As I work on this latest piece, I am just loving all of the colors, layers, and textures. I thought I would share what I like to use when I paint. I have painted in many types of mediums-watercolor, oil, and acrylic. I always found myself going back to acrylic. For some artists, they don’t like how fast it dries, but it’s something that I prefer. And while oils provide some brilliant, true colors- I have found that I still can get vibrant colors from acrylics if the paint is right. All close up views are from my latest work...
I decided that for my first art showcase, I will be revealing my first painting from the start of my new series. They still revolve around the idea of nebulas, galaxies, and life; but with a new subject. This first one is quite large, heavily textured, and incorporates iridescent paints. It will be 36”x48” painted with acrylics.
As a child, I loved watching Bob Ross on PBS before cartoons were on in the morning. I didn’t realize until much later that by observing his painting and color mixing techniques, I developed my own painting skills by practicing his techniques. Now that Bob Ross is streaming on Netflix, I have watched some episodes to relive the nostalgia, but I also picked up on a few things that helped me growing up (even if I didn’t realize it at the time) and that even help me now…maybe they will help you too?
When I lived in New York, I loved exploring the North Forest in Central Park. It completely takes you away from the city as you wind your way down the tree covered paths. During my first outing into the North Forest, I took many pictures. And it was from this collection that inspired my first painting titled: Space Trees.
