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!
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.
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?).
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!
I had a fun day celebrating Father’s Day with my hubby and darling daughter. We also ran into a friend unexpectedly. This was not the first time that we’ve run into this friend in random parts of California!
We spent the day in Gold County on an excessively hot day. Either most of the cute antique shops did not have a/c or the a/c they had could not keep up with the 100 degree temps. With that, we still had a lovely day with hubby proclaiming that this was the “best” father’s day.
I want to do some more sewing themed art and was looking for some inspiration. This dress form was calling me…..
Today the Alameda County Fair begins! 3 weeks of glorious deep fried goodies, bands from yesteryear, people hawking their wares, and some amazing art on display. Come check out my piece on display this year!
