Stopped by Carolina Artists’ Colony in Sanford this week to drop off some new pieces and to spruce up my art space. Abstracts, dragonflies, Angels, rabbits, bird nests and cupcakes are just a few of the paintings in my little space. 

Of course I couldn’t leave Sanford without lunch at Kathy’s Java Express, I always enjoy a bowl of her yummy Big Bird soup.

Sorry to say goodbye to Sandy, manager of Carolina Artists’ Colony, she always took care of me! Wishing Sandy and everyone a wonderful New Year, and thank you for following my posts.

My neighbor Tonya requested a painting for her son’s bathroom. Tonya loves texture, which is right up my alley so I used layers of colors, plastic wrap texture and smears of subtle  watery hues. Let me tell you about the best part of creating this large painting. Braxton, her two year old precious son helped paint the shellcracker fish, oh the memories we made!  He enjoyed painting on the fish but he wasn’t much on putting the fish down on the canvas to make a print (I saw him one time take a sample taste test). Love my lil neighbor Braxton. 

The technique of printing comes from the  Japanese age old art called gyotaku.  

I think I will title this painting ” Braxton’s First Painting”

Introducing something new, “Linear Song”, 20×24 acrylic and oil on gallery wrapped canvas. My one and only 2015 New Year’s resolution is to pursue the world of abstraction. This is my very first one and I am excited to show it to you.
Inspiration came from studying the work of artist Krista Harris. A few years ago I was with a dear friend at Duke Hospital in Durham, North Carolina, I saw a beautiful huge abstract painting by Krista hanging on the hospital wall. It inspired me to do a bit of research, she was born in Charlotte, NC but now lives in Colorado.
“Linear Song” was inspired by a tree in my front yard, I began with a really loose sketch, then started adding layers of acrylic washes, finishing up with oil and gold leaf application. I will continue to paint familiar subjects in my usual style but I look forward to exploring abstraction, please let me know what you think.
