“Wha?!” 8X10″ Oil on canvas – NFS

The above piece is a quick study I did the other day. Created from a photo that captured my attention.

My fourth of July will consist of the traditional food, fireworks, family and friends. This year it will be on a smaller scale since it falls on a Thursday.

I haven’t taken the week off.  But I guess I am giving myself a lot of leeway. As of the last two days I focused on painting and napping. Not necessarily in that order.  My husband is on vacation from his job this week.  So it is hear-by decided I can blame him for my lack of initiative!

Two commissions are being painted at the moment. The plan is to wrap them up by the end of the month.

In about six months time I think we need to look at increasing prices. So just a heads up!

Oil on Canvas 9X12″

I have an obsession with chandeliers and things sparkly.  I took some time yesterday to take a few reference images for a future project at a local shop. The last one, the little black chandelier, I am thinking would look cute in my studio/office. 🙂

Getting the new year rolling along. Made new brochures, ordered more art supplies, touched up work for, and hung a small exhibit.

After touching up the edges of the oil pieces, they were left for a few days to dry before hanging. I had them all over my work area.

……more paintings with wet edges.

Hung a small show, in local gallery.

I sent a “heads up” email to everyone that mentioned on facebook they were interested in setting up commissions this year. If you are interested and we didn’t get an email sent to you, drop us a line!

Next week = Images of new paintings. 🙂
