My son started preschool last week and he had a really rough start. I think he's got the hang of it now and it's such a relief! You'd think with my new found freedom, albeit brief and only twice a week, that I'd be painting like a mad woman here in the studio. NO. I'm working on the house, purging and organizing, hoping that with those things off my brain, I can focus on my art. So, I have no new art to share but for those of you new to my blog, here a few pieces from last fall. These paintings were a distinct shift in my art and set me on my current path. Oh, and some of them are still available as originals or prints. Some of the originals will be in a gallery in Livingston, Tx (as soon as I can get off my booty and package them up to ship!) I've sold a few here and there but I'm not getting back into my ETSY shop until I have more time. Until then, I'll sell when someone shows interest and paint when I can get time. It's so fun to look these pieces now...makes me smile. Hope you'll like looking at them, too.
It's not very often that you might see such a creature so close to your master bedroom...this lady decided to make her web just outside one of my master windows. It's given us a perfect opportunity to observe her closely without fear of being bitten. My kids have loved looking at her. Isn't she gorgeous? Thought I'd share since so many times we, as artists (as humans really!!) can be inspired by nature. Look at her incredible coloring!! Maybe I'll paint something thinking of her....hope she can inspire you, too!!
