Latest Project: Mural at a Local Church

I spent the first half of this week standing in a baptism tub and painting the walls around it. Not a bad way to pass the time...I definitely enjoy being able to work in a variety of settings. Being a working artist is awesome!

Free Art Around Town

Lately I've been dropping off little pieces of art around the town square, taking a photo, then posting to my FB page to let people know they can scoop up free art. It's been fun and so far, mostly everything has been claimed and some people have even posted photos to my FB page to let me know they appreciate the hunt. This is super fun. It's almost like graffiti (which I love) without damage to any private structures.

I've been calling the little yellow envelopes "love notes". They're made from small pieces of wood and they have two strong magnets on the back. I've enjoyed sticking them on random things around town. 

I usually drop off art on Fridays, hence the name, but this weekend I've dropped on Saturday and Sunday. Rules are meant to be broken! Even your own.

Brushes, Brushes, Brushes!

Today I stocked up on my most favorite brushes. Soon I'll be opening up my studio to the public for little paint-along sessions. I'm excited for this new adventure, but I think the hardest part is trying to publicize it all without getting frustrated. How do I let the town know what I'm doing without going spending a lot of money? This is definitely a challenge, and I hope to figure out a solid plan soon!

Wish me luck!

On My Desk Wednesday

Last week was full of watercolors! 

Several commissioned pieces were finally finished.

And I knocked out a piece or two for myself.

First Painting Class in the Studio


This past Friday I hosted an arty party for my kiddo and her friends. She requested we paint her favorite animal, a red panda. All of the girls had a ton of fun! It was definitely a new experience for me, especially since I haven't taught all that much. I think I did well, mostly because the girls reassured me and said they had lots of fun. 

Silly Face Time!

It's super cool how all of the paintings turned out to be so different. None of the girls were self-conscious in their creativity and they all painted how they wanted. So cool! I'm going to have to do this more often!
