Day Ninety-Two!

Not exactly my best night, but I seem to be building a group of images to use in the book I’m creating out of all my non-favorites! I would really love for the book to be my 100th post but god that’s only 8 posts away and really intimidating. Anyway, I have heard people talking about open studios and I am getting pretty excited. The only thing that is somewhat of a downer is I am only doing the Sunday date for July and I am WAY down in the village, not exactly the first stop for most studio tour goers. Fingers crossed! I would love to pay back some of the money I spent on framing for the images I submitted for the Cohasset Art Center! Alright, Have a goodnight, see you tomorrow!

Day Ninety-One!

This was like a total paint fest on one surface. I wasn’t really feeling anything I was working on and this was actually the scrap piece I had been using.  Oddly enough even if it doesn’t end up like this in the end it might make its way into the book I am making with all the images I’m not crazy about. Anyway, Enjoy and I will see you tomorrow!

Day Ninety!

Today was such a wonderful Sunday, went for a morning bike ride, went to the beach, dinner with the family, and a walk on the sea wall to finish off the day. I was able to dedicate a nice chunk of time to this painting although it is rather small. I’m excited to have been producing these small paintings just before open studios next Sunday. This image is a combination of the shapes I’m working with, as you can probably see, clusters of mushrooms, fins rocks, webs, and petals. See I work on more than just rock images! Anyway, enjoy and I’ll see you tomorrow! BTW can we believe it is July already? Mental right!

Day Eighty-Eight!

Well that’s a fun number, although it is ridiculously even for me. Normally I am not an even kind of person. It’s like symmetry, it drives me insane. They say that people are drawn to very symmetrical people but I think that would bother me. I mean for example I am happy to say that my face is NOT symmetrical, the main difference that I can see is in my eyes, although it is slight it seems like one is a bit more open and the freckles don’t match… I mean the freckles in my eye not on my face. Anyway, as you can see my images are typically far from symmetrical. There is one thing I would like to conquer or at the very least attempt, to put these in a space or on a surface. They currently appear like objects or icons, strange but iconic. Actually on another note they would be amazing built-in 3D (NEXT PROJECT).  Anyway, enjoy and I’ll see you tomorrow!

Day Eighty-Seven!

Another late night Thursday posting. I wish I could get into the habit of working on pieces in the morning and posting at a reasonable hour but it just doesn’t seem to be my style. Anyway, back at the acrylics, loving the end results. I’ve had a few comments about the color and the richness which has been kind of nice to hear. On another note, OPEN STUDIOS is creeping up on me. July 8th which is a Sunday I will be showing artwork at my studio in Hull, MA. Please visit http://www.hullartists.com for more information. I always love doing open studios, not even because it gives me the opportunity to sell some of my work but really it gives me a deadline and me and deadlines work REALLY well together. Anyway, for any locals out there hope to see you there. Enjoy and I will see you tomorrow!

Day Eighty-Six!

Another day another post, its amazing to me when I learn that someone who I didn’t expect tells me they read my blog. It’s actually kind of awesome, so thank you! On another note today was bitter-sweet it was the last day at EES for me and although it will relieve some financial burdens it was a bit sad to say goodbye. I just keep saying that eventually when I get my whole life back together I can reapply or maybe even buy my own press, $3000 that’s all!  Also, I decided today that I want a shrink-wrap machine, they are awesome to have when trying to prep for a craft fair or open studios. Not that it is by any means a necessity but I would like one in my future studio! Anyway, about this painting. I loved looking back on all 85 images today when I was organizing them and this just kind of evolved from that a combination of current and older images really. I’m trying to get a grip on acrylic again, haven’t properly used them since like high school which honestly was like 8 years ago now. AHHH! Anyway gotta wrap things up here, watching “21 jump Street” and it is amazing. See you tomorrow!

Day Eighty-Five!

So a continuation from Day eighty-three, another acrylic growth. Started with a central mark and just allowed it to evolve around that. I added the green to give it another element but I wish I had worked it a bit more. I guess it is all a learning experience. For instance today at work, LEARNING EXPERIENCE, unlike when you work for a major company you are forced to become a jack of all trades with small business. You learn how to be the IT girl while also schooling people on what hair and makeup products will work best for them and cleaning up flash flooding incidents. A whole lot of chaos, but it is making me a much more well-rounded person. A learning experience everyday, in both the art and working world! Haha, lets see what tomorrow brings.

Day Eighty-Three!

Today was a crazy weather day, I feel like we had like 3 seasons all in a matter of hours. After work it was gorgeous so I set out with miss BooBoo (my dog) and the next thing I know the sky is opening up and it is raining like crazy. So me and Boo booked it back to the house just in time for the power to go out. I decided that it was a great time to start painting my image for the day since I wasn’t about to be doing much else. I really like the painting, I just kept watching it grow outwards. I can’t wait to try this again. Anyway Enjoy and I will see you tomorrow!

Day Forty-One

Similar project today as yesterday, acrylic and pen. I love parts of this color combination. As many times as I see the bright green with either a pink or red it never gets old for me. It’s the only color combination I have ever felt attached to. Anyway, I have still been basing my initial shapes off of images from the cape and then altering to a more abstract form. Tomorrow looks like it may be a great day. See you then!
