This piece, a commission I completed and shipped a few weeks ago. I thoroughly enjoyed creating this unique piece. A friend’s daughter had visited the gallery that represents my work a few months back and saw a piece she liked, thinking about it for a family member. She contacted me a month later, giving me some insight about the young women who would receive the painting. I suggested doing a bit larger canvas and we both are happy with the result. I was able to include almost all of what this young women enjoys, as she is quite talented in the performing arts. She played the lead role in Alice in Wonderland and is presently in the production of the musical Gloria. I Dreamed A Dream is her favorite song and I can only imagine she performs it beautifully! As an artist it truly feels good to create a painting that is one of a kind for another talented artist with passion in her soul for the performing arts.
I started a canoe painting a few weeks ago. This piece has many layers. This afternoon I had time to add three more layers of papers and paint. The canoe painting is an art piece I’ve wanted to create for so long. Being able to finally see it starting to appear on the canvas is so rewarding to me. At the same time I’m a bit intimidated by the challenge of completing the piece. Each layer brings that old fear into my mind, can I do it? One step at a time, one layer at a time, be mindful and pull away when I am not focused. To be continued…
This piece I have titled Six Hearts. This canvas I had done about two years ago and it truly needed a facelift! I covered it with black acrylic paint and started over. I was not truly in love with it but it is growing on me. If you click on the photo you can enlarge the image to read the words.
I am still working on the dress collection and have finished two more paintings. I needed a break from painting the dresses so created the six hearts.
Thanks for visiting my blog everyone! Hope your heart is filled with joy today!
This trio of trees are made from sheet music. Plan to place them in the gallery hoping to sell them during this holiday season. I made several of these wonderful trees last year for a sale I was involved in with a friend. I only sold one, a sweet women purchased one for her daughter’s piano teacher.
Where your pleasure is, there is your treasure; where your treasure, there is your heart; where your heart, there your happiness.
