Everyone has those small little odd walls in their apartment or home where there is absolutely no room for a large painting. Plus, frankly, sometimes larger paintings are just not in the budget. Enter: small paintings in a vignette setting. It is a good entryway into the foray of art collecting. And besides, how cute does it look!
I have spent the last few months spending hours of researching abstract techniques: some old and some new. Many of the new techniques are generously provided by Jane Davies. The videos are usually short (10 minutes or less) and always leave you wanting more. I am looking forward to her online workshop "Keys To Dynamic Composition" in March. Meanwhile, here are some of the abstracts that I have been working on lately.
Welcome to my new blog. I've completely rebranded myself and wanted to start fresh and have my blog in the same location as my website, so Welcome! Both Shopify and Fine Art Studio Online (FASO) allow you to have your blog within your website. The reasons I am switching from FASO to Shopify are (a) I prefer their templates, and (b) I want to integrate my blog/website and be able to sell directly from within Facebook.
I have been wanting to migrate to abstract and semi-abstract paintings (figures, animals, architecture, and travel-related paintings) for some time now, so a new year, a new host and a new focus start here.
My latest painting is Retro Nude. I call her Retro Nude because my son said the colors reminded him of the 80s!
