"Molly," 5" x 7", cat portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, $249. Inquiries may come to me.
Don't you just love the color in her? I do. There are untold layers of paint - this piece glows when you hold it in your hands. Paintings like Molly's are why I stand in front of the easel each day - a solid combination of color and loose brushwork.
I may have another new love as well. Have you heard of creative journalling? It's a cross between writing, sketching, scrapbooking and collage, and a great way to feed one's energy. I've always kept diaries/journals/blogs, and I am in the studio creating nearly every day, so it seemed a natural choice.
Below is today's page. (I don't do a page each day, but one every couple weeks - and sometimes I work on a page or spread for several weeks before moving on.) This is a silhouette of the original studio muse Miah who crossed the bridge almost a year ago. Wow. It's been almost a year.
This page is done in acrylics, colored pencil, stamps, and ink. I know I will get more adventurous with materials as my journalling progresses. I am actually placing an order tonight for some linoleum cutting materials - so stay tuned!
Thanks, as always, for sharing my artwork with your friends and family.
Happy St. Patty's Day!
