Paintings of the Day

The following paintings are "Paintings of the Day" for the last 4 days. Each time I do a painting of the day, I try to choose something that I want to learn and create a painting based on that.

I wanted to learn a little more about texture, using a pallette knife to paint - and what would happen if I held the brush toward the end, instead of holding so tightly to the tip near the brush. It gave me less control, and created looser more random strokes - perfect for this painting.




I wanted to learn a little more about different ways of blending and combining unexpected colors. I like the results.







This painting was a very short lesson in perspective and creating peaks of texture.



In this little ACEO I got a little practice with the line brush. I really challenged myself to work very quickly. I tend to over work everything and with this painting I only allowed myself 40 minutes to get it done, so there was no chance to do that. The other great thing about this painting is that the layers were put on in very obvious steps. I try to work this way - it makes it easier, but I usually end up skipping steps.

New Work Space!




I am so excited!!! I'm getting my own new studio space! Besides moving stuff out of my house, I'll finally be able to get away from home, hang up my art, and spread out a little. I'm still looking for a few good, creative people to share the space with. I've been looking all over hoping that I'll find the best combo of artists and crafters. Basically, I'd like this place to be filled with creative people who can help each other to network and find opportunities. The idea of it is to really help each other succeed, maybe have open studio nights and other events. We (as a group) would have to discuss the details of these events. All of it would really be up to the individual, if they don't want to or can't participate in certain things, that's fine. The space is a Colonial house, right on the water, right off Post Rd. I just feel that there are a lot of ways that artists can help each other out, and we should work together.

Bohemian and Gypsy Style


I cannot tell you how much I love the Bohemian and Gypsy styles. I did this blog post mostly as a self indulgence, if I were wealthy everything would have just a touch of Gypsy and hippie in it. Maybe not all of my decor, or all of my clothing, but there would be just a bit of Gypsy magic in everything.

I have quite a few projects going on right now, I like to keep myself busy and I like to change it up often. One of the projects is a custom order drawing. Drawing was my first medium (I guess it is for most people) and I miss it sometimes, so it is nice to get back to it occassionally. This drawing is in the very begining stages, just the outline is done really, and some hints of facial features. The scan for some reason came out dark on the top, not sure why.


I have been working diligently on the starfish, and Beanie wanted to be a part of it, so she drew her own. I guess this will give you a clue what it will look like when it is done :)

Giggle Goddess Jewelry and Art Parties

What is a Giggle Goddess Party? It is a chance to get together with friends and have a blast looking at pretty jewelry and wonderful original artwork. The parties are very relaxed, no pressure is put on anyone to buy. It is a lot of fun and there are a lot of great products to choose from.
If you live in the Rhode Island area I can come to your home, but even if you aren't, you could host a cyber party and still get the same amount of free stuff. I can send you more information on either kind of party, please don't hesitate to ask.

Free Stuff!!!
You get stuff whether your friends book a party or not. You get free stuff just for hosting a party, even if no one buys a single thing. However, the more people buy and the more people book parties the amount of free stuff you earn just goes up and up. If people attending your party book their own parties the amount of free goodies increases by $15.00 for each party booked. Guests get 10% off if they bring a friend!!!
