I am painting one of the banners that will be auctioned off at the Livermore ArtWalk. Each color of the rainbow will be represented plus the addition of a neon orange color. I am on an orange kick, so I will see how that looks. This is the largest canvas that I’ve ever worked on. It’s fun so far!
Hope everyone is having a joyful Sunday!
If you are in the area, please stop by and support local artists!!
I took the day off from work today and spent the morning at the studio. I am happy that the heater is working (somewhat); the last few times I went in, it was pretty cold and hard to do art. I love having a space so close to Casse-Croute Bakery. The warm croissant and coffee was the perfect answer to the cold temp.
Lately, I have been experimenting with the poured paint medium. I am not quite sure if I am liking this process or not. There’s a good deal of giving up control and the mess is a bit more then I am comfortable with (and I like to be messy).
For this experiment, I placed the pouring medium directly on the wood block that I first painted and then added my paint into the medium. I tried to not move the board – I just wanted to see what gravity did to the paint colors. I am not sure what it will look like when it dries (another downside to this process, IMHO). I like more instant gratification!
Please join me and my talented studio mates for our Open Studio Holiday art sale! I have my original paintings, prints, cards, magnets and pins for sale. Lots of unique and affordable gifts.

In addition, we will have a donation collection to aid the victims of the recent Ghost Ship fire in Oakland. We are devastated to know about the tragic fire and want to do our part to support the artist community.
We are going to have an open studio on December 3rd to coincide with the Downtown Livermore festivities. I’ll be selling my paintings, prints and cards. If you are in town, please check it out. My talented studio mates will also be there with their beautiful art too!
ArtWalk 2016 is now a thing of the past. It was fun and I could see myself doing more art fairs in the future. Yes, I did sell some of my art and got lots of nice, encouraging feedback. I enjoyed hearing people reminisce about loved ones who sewed. I also discovered that there are many fellow button lovers out there! It was also great to have some of my dear friends visit my booth.
Now, I am going to focus on getting my Etsy shop up to speed. Today, I spent some time photographing some of my artwork on a wall in my home. As you can see, I had a lot of help with my kitty assistants. This is why I have to work in a studio!

3 Heart Pins – 12 x 12 acrylic painting
Well, here’s the next painting in my sewing series. I just love these heart pins. What a sweet way to add your love to a sewing project!
I chose red, blue and yellow as a tribute to the primary colors. They are the root to all other hues.
