It has been a little while since I last posted here. I did my fist table on Weekends on Main Street. It was very hot (over 100 degrees at 5pm) but lots of fun. I had the pleasure of meeting Tejal and see her beautiful resin artwork and paintings. You should check her out on Insta @color_ur_imagination. It was also wonderful to spend some time with Karen, another local artist. You can check out her prints/designs @karenbarry_art
I enjoyed meeting people who were strolling on Main Street. Lots of families, dogs and bicyclists! It is a vibrant community we have here! I will be out again on July 23rd and August 6th selling cards, prints, coasters, stickers and original artwork.
I took the day off from work and boy did I need that! I did not end up doing all (or most) of the things on my to-do list. Guess I just needed to chill.
I love bees – my morning ritual is to watch them and attempt to take photos of them. Most end up blurry – so I ended up using an image from Pixabay. Pixabay is a fun place to get inspired – tons of beautiful images there. Image by Anrita1705 from Pixabay
As always, doing art is my restorative practice. I have been painting ice pops – they are cheerful, and colorful. A moment of escape. Things are so heavy right now.
This one is my Amador Pop – my daughter’s high school colors – purple and gold, happen to be my favorite color combo. If you would like me to paint your school colors or favorite flavors, drop me a message. I’d be happy to do a custom artwork piece! This one is 5×7 inches. They make great gifts.
For me, this is how it typically starts when doing a still life. I like to make sure that the background color feels right. This is a classic case of using the complimentary color (red and green). It is also the time when I step back and make sure that I like the positioning/composition of the objects. I will add more details as I go!
