Exuberant Spring
Acrylic on canvas
24" X 18"

A new acrylic painting, this is my celebratory and bold "Spring", I have a delicate "Spring" in the works.

I am working part time at a florist, it is fun to use design and color in a totally new way and medium. It feels like painting sometimes. I am also working on a new painting but it is not turning out delicate but bold and bright.

Spring Photos

Watching Spring unfold has been such a joy! I really hope to do some beautiful and delicate paintings from this inspiration.

New Illustration

"Lovable" This one turned out pretty. I am jumping around a bit in style but I just need to finish the project at this point. I am on the last batch!

Monochromatic and Not

I am dreaming of softer colors and monochromatic schemes like Monday's snow fall showed me. What I am painting are these crazy tattooed wine bottles. I also want to incorporate more drawing in my paintings. I am thinking about switching my media a bit. Hopefully when the illustration project is over I can find some new directions, only 11 more to draw, woo hoo!

Workshop Success

Our first workshop class was fun and productive. Two art teachers are taking the class which was unexpected and made me feel really good. Many exciting things are happening at MadArts from cooking classes to new whimsical wooden carvings.
