Getting in the holiday spirit

It was the perfect rainy morning to do some art. I wanted to do something that got me in a holiday state of mind. This is a small (8×10) acrylic painting.

We are going to have an open studio on December 3rd to coincide with the Downtown Livermore festivities. I’ll be selling my paintings, prints and cards. If you are in town, please check it out. My talented studio mates will also be there with their beautiful art too!

Safety pin

I did a quick sketch this morning. Using a safety pin was on my “to do list” as part of my sewing theme. But this is different. This is necessary for me to communicate – I am a person who is in solidarity with those who have less privilege in our society. I am also someone who understands my own sense of privilege. Please know that I am a safe person who will stand up to injustice to the best of my ability.

ArtWalk 2016 – tomorrow!

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

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.

Work in progress 

“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!
