Bothwell open studio

I will be at my studio at the Bothwell this Saturday, Feb 29 – 11am – 3pm

Several artists will be opening up their work spaces. Please feel free to drop by! There will be art demonstrations, family art projects, snacks and of course – ART!

I really want to clear up some space, so you will find special pricing on many of my items.

Converse Sneakers – Paintings

I am totally having fun making these small canvases! Chuck Taylor Converse sneakers are my go-to shoe! I think all of my pairs have some paint on them. I consider that a badge of honor! I will be bringing them over to the Livermore Art Association Gallery or they are available on my Etsy Site

These are colorful – I chose bright cheery colors to capture the happiness that these shoes brings! This will perk up any room!

Do you have a favorite color or memory connected to your Chuck Taylor sneakers??

Another Art Festival

Art Under the Oaks – July 20th

I will be one of the artists at Art Under the Oaks. This one is hosted by Alden Lane which is a beautiful nursery in Livermore. This is my favorite place to get gardening supplies. I will be there on Saturday only of this 2 day weekend event. check out the details here

I will have lots of original art on canvas, paper and wood as well as prints, coasters and necklaces. There will be food and wine too! Stop by and say hi!

Art in the Vineyard

It has been a while…

I have not been posting here on my blog much. I have been busy and have been active on instagram.   (Feel free to follow me there)  I am still trying to figure out which venue is best suited to me. Here’s a few paintings that I have worked on lately:

 

As I see these all together, the common thread is how much I enjoy the various subjects. From that quirky Centennial Bulb to my nail polish addiction, it brings me joy to work on these paintings.

I will be making some prints from these paintings. Do you have a favorite painting from these? Let me know which one in the comment here or on Facebook.

Work in progress

I am in the homestretch on this banner! Overall, I am happy with its progress. The light blue button was not working for me so I decided to work on that one today. I thought that I was adding an iridescent white to the party, but I actually added Interference Green. I am so pleased with this result. Yay, a happy mistake – my favorite! I have to finish up the neon orange and teal blue buttons and then decide if I need to add one more small one in the bottom left side (maybe a gray/silver colored one?).
