I am doing the final touches to get ready for the ArtWalk festival in Livermore tomorrow! The weather will be sunny and warm. If you are in the area, please stop by my booth (near the Bankhead). It’s a fun festival – great art to see and buy, music and beer tasting! All of my favorite things.
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.
“Pin Cushion” is my latest painting. It’s part of my sewing themed collection.
One of my studio mates suggested that I make it 3D by hammering in pins. I’m kinda tempted to do this. What a great idea! I think it will look cool – plus I can avoid some more tiny bush work! I’m going to test out the technique on a different canvas. If it goes smoothly, I’ll do it on this one. Stay tuned!
I am very excited to announce that I will have my very first booth at the Art Walk in Livermore – Saturday, October 8th. Mark your calendars! If you are in the area, please stop by – I’d love to see you there!
Here’s a link for more information on the event. The tree sweater forest is a must see!
I’ve been busy in my studio working on these acrylic paintings and I’m just loving the sewing theme. These are all 12×12 canvases. Soon, they will be available for purchase. I enjoy working on this size and shape of canvas; it gives the item an up-close and intimate feel. It also helps me to limit my color choices, so that I can play around with the combinations that I just love.
I am planning on expanding my button theme to include various sewing notions. I’m going to explore the many wonders of thimbles, pin cushions, measuring tape and spools of thread in all sorts of colors. Yay, now I have another reason to get over to Britex for inspiration and possible source material.
This painting is 12×12 acrylic. Be on the lookout for my Etsy shop.
I entered this painting in the Alameda County Fair art competition. I really like having my art work out in the world! It will be a good excuse to actually attend the fair this year. Which deep fried delight will I consume?
The Downtown Art Studios in Livermore will have its work night – open studio. Thursday April 14 6pm – 8pm 62 South L street in downtown Livermore. I will be there working on my latest piece pictured here.
That Bari sax has so many intricacies- I hope to do it justice! This is part of my new series of work focused on instruments that are important in our lives. My daughter plays a mean Bari!
Here’s other work connected to this series:
Hope you can come out to the studio!
