Collaborations

My friend and fellow Indianapolis artist Kat Silver asked me if I would be interested in doing some collaborations for a local exhibit.  I absolutely LOVE her work, so I jumped at the chance.  She is a very skilled artist with a wonderful sense of whimsy, so we decided I would do the background landscapes, which are what I do best, and she would finish it with people, animals, etc., depending on what the piece looks like it needs.  I can’t wait to see what we come up with.  I think my part is finished, and now Kat will add her lighthearted magic!

Here’s the start of part 2:

Art of the Ages

Wow  What a great event and what a lovely setting.  We had a great turnout for WOIA presents Art of the Ages.  If you are ever in Indianapolis, be sure to check out The Athenaeum.  The building is stunning and the arts space is just ethereal.  I am so honored and thrilled to have some of my paintings there for the month of April.

Sunset in Cypress Grove

I’m getting close to finishing this big boy: 30″ x 40″- another one inspired by New Orleans news anchor and photographer John Snell.  I hope to have it ready for exhibit at Art of The Ages at The Athenaeum in downtown Indianapolis.  The opening reception is tomorrow evening from 6:00-9:00.  Come by and say hello!

Midwest Winter Sunrise

I just finished and signed this 12 x 24″ acrylic on canvas.  It’s from a photograph by Ohio artist and photographer Shannon Godby, who has generously given me his permission to use the photo for inspiration.  It was fun experimenting with glaze.

This is the most recent update.  I’m fairly pleased with it so far!

New Year = New techniques & new knowledge

In keeping with my resolution to really focus on my art this year, I’ve tried a new approach to a painting, and I’m experimenting with glazing.  I’m probably not doing it right, but I think it’s something that requires practice.  I also signed up for a teaching course on the business side of being a professional artist.  I’m hoping the investment is worthwhile and can get me more exposure, and of course, more sales.  I’m hoping to have at least one of these three paintings in the Stutz exhibit for February, and I’ll have some of my art at Sacred Roots Midwifery and Birth Center for the next few months.  Wish me luck.

 

I’ll keep you posted!

 

 

Mini paintings are great gifts for anytime!

Mini paintings make fantastic gifts. A little touch of original art that is reasonably priced and very transportable makes a unique statement that will add to the personal touches of someone’s home or office. Send me a favorite photograph of a flower, tree or landscape and I will create something just for you. At this point, I could not guarantee it would be ready before Christmas, but think about birthdays, Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day, or the best of all:  a gift for no apparent reason.
