I am so pleased with how these came out! All the artwork was completed in Procreate and printed on wrapped canvas. I will have these up for sale on Etsy and in person at my next Weekends on Main Street event (July 23rd)
Cherry painting on paper
fun on all sides!
Did a quick painting for day 17 of the #30paintingsin30days challenge. “Ligature” is a 8×8 acrylic painting on wood panel. The ligature is an important part of the clarinet – it holds the reed in place on the mouthpiece.
I remember declaring to my painting teacher that I will not paint a reflective surface because I just did not want to deal with the thousands of subtle colors. My teacher was wise and encouraged me to do just that. Face the things that are a challenge – purposely embrace it – stick with it. Great life lessons.
Day 15 (which happens to be my anniversary) of the #30paintingsin30days challenge. Another examination of the clarinet. I worked off a photo found here – I loved the yellow background and the orientation to the left. From looking at my own instrument, I see some areas that I might switch around.

The Sweet Spot
Day 8 in the #30paintingsin30days challenge. This is an acrylic painting on wood panel (12×12). I play clarinet and just adore all aspects of it (with the exception of the sound of an A note). It’s elegant looking (black and silver), perfectly sized and has a versatile sound (Jazz to orchestra). While I admit, it is not a “cool” instrument – doubt we’ll get a charismatic politician to play it on a late night show nor will we get a Clarence Clemons like figure to play clarinet in the rock world. I could still dream! I also kinda like it not being cool.
I titled this the “Sweet Spot” because it is focused on the lower joint. This is where you’ll find the keys for the lower register, the sweet spot of the clarinet’s sound.
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!
