New Work: “Sanctuary”

Sanctuary

To all following along, thank you for the encouragement and support of my new painting “Sanctuary”. I really have no idea where this path will take me artistically but that seems really exciting to me as an artist. I’ve felt for a while that my work needed to grow and agonized over how to deal with those feelings. I ultimately realized that I could contemplate this dilemma forever but couldn’t have an opinion about what I never allowed to exist. I decided to just go for it. I tried to paint less with my head and more with my heart. I tried to stop being predictable and “Sanctuary” is the result. I learn something with every painting and this one has shown me so much but also posed a lot of new questions. I have already begun a new canvas and am excited to get to work free of all the old rules and habits that held me back before.

Summer On My Mind

Limitless

Surface

As I write this, my outdoor thermometer hovers way below freezing. Despite this chilling fact, I really do like winter. It’s a beautiful season, just a little too gray and white for a painter who loves color. Luckily I planned ahead and am still able to enjoy the season that I think is the most fun to paint! Here are two of my newest works drying in the studio and waiting to be framed. “Limitless” (top) and “Surface”

Attitude

AttitudeThe painting “Attitude” came about kind of unexpectedly. As I held this beautifully reflective tube of luscious red lipstick, I started thinking about the power this color holds. The bad girl imagery goes perfectly with this bold, seductive, and jealousy invoking red. It is not the color to stain your lips if you’re feeling shy. It’s the color to choose if you want to feel irresistible and invincible. The perfect color for a girl with attitude.
