Story People

Story People

Most people think of my wide eyed wistful girls when they think of my art, but my story people are close to my heart as well. They are probably my most expressionistic, soul spurting, muse directly to canvas paintings that I do. I haven’t figured out a nice way to show them with my girls yet or I would show them more often at shows. The Earth Bistro walls hung with them for about 4 months last year. Even to myself they seem such a departure from my low brow girls, more abstractions, ideas, even the color scheme is different. My girls live in worlds of berry reds and cerulean blues, pinks, black, whites. My Story people prefer the bold oranges of Mars and the greens of Venus, bright sun yellows, Deep midnight skies.

Student sells artwork

It is always so rewarding as a teacher when a student sells a work of art. I think I may get as excited as the artist or the buyer together. I taught several private classes out of state this summer, and a student sold a beautiful piece created from his first wash he did in our color wash workshop. It was sold through Etsy and was shipped off this morning to another country.

Reception- Monday Afternoon 9/23- Earth Bistro

This afternoon Earth Bistro and BigFoot Graphics will be hosting an art show for my impressionistic modern paintings at Earth Bistro. This show features my lesser seen modern works in the entry area.

Earth Bistro is a wonderful place to grab a healthy dinner with fresh local ingredients. They are very food sensitive aware and have no nuts on the premises and also have a very large selection of gluten free or vegan meals.

Monday late afternoon 4-6. Earth Bistro on Winchester in Temecula.

Catalina Abstracts

casino1

I often will work on color wash abstracts when I am not particularly inspired to paint something specific. It gets me painting, and it is so relaxing and often enough they turn out so lovely that they become back grounds for other paintings. Sometimes I love them so much they become the finished work. This week I have been working backwards. I am doing the washes on top of the under paintings instead of using the washes as my underpainting. The result is some stormy, expressionistic Catalina Island abstract Landscapes.
