I’ve burned the midnight oil ever since I returned from Artfest to get ready for my two upcoming shows. The first one, at Oasis Art Gallery in Wallingford, starts Saturday. I’ve been up late every night painting, varnishing and making prints. I’m totally exhausted and battling a cold. Guess that’s what I get for trying to have a second full-time job in my off-hours. To make things more challenging, both my kids are on vacation this week. Mommy really needing to write her blog post is not an acceptable excuse for not playing corner store by my son’s account, so during the day things happen in short bursts. Well, without further ado, here’s what I’ve been up to!
I’ve been playing around a bit with abstract painting. These will be up at the Oasis show. Ugh, I just realized that I forgot to photograph one of my pieces, which I’ve already sent to the gallery. Doh!
Roots – this painting has some metallic and translucent paint. Had a bit of trouble photographing it.
The Battle of Sun and Rain/No Color Left Behind
I’ve been playing around with the paintings that I started in Mindy Lacefield’s awesome class at Artfest, and created some more using her colorful techniques.
The Owl and The Pussycat – tweaked a bit since you last saw it…
Side view – The Owl and The Pussycat
Swinging – ah, summertime.
Two Heads are Better… This started out as a two-headed bird, but the body just wasn’t working for me, I think this works better!
Unicorn Rainbow – I miss the 80s…
Cat Power – inspired by my daughter’s love of cats. The pencil drawing is by my daughter, Olivia.
My second show this year starts May 1st. I’ll tell you more about it soon. Thanks for stopping by!
