What is this, a blog post? Yes it is. We won't even talk about how long it's been, let's just move along.
I'm going to try and get my blogging mojo back over the next couple of weeks so bare with me. My studio building is open next thursday (august 25) as part of the Art Walk and I am thinking about opening my studio doors and having a big clearance sale of some of my paintings that are still kicking around the studio - the smaller ones and the paintings that don't fit into my current series or where my head is currently at art wise.
It is time to clear the cobwebs!
Not sure if I will do this or not so stay tuned!! but pssst - this one is a great deal!! and it has a frame

I FINALLY got to the beach and did some plain air painting. So nice to get out there and just paint!!
I did a bunch of 6x6" oil on panel. I'll post a new one each day with a link to purchase

I was fortunate to win a free spot in Lilla Rogers Make Art That Sells Bootcamp!!
So for the next 5 months I will be busy tapping into my Illustration roots.
I'm so excited about this because it really has been since college that I've flexed these muscles except for my sketchbooks.
It will be so fun to see what comes out of this class and how my style will emerge and evolve.
Our first assignment focuses on the hair styles of the 1920's - kinda my wheelhouse so I'm diving right in
My painting is still happening - don't worry - I am painting away in the studio getting some big art ready for the summer.
follow me on instagram where I'll be posting about both projects almost daily

People are my jam. I mean I paint them and draw them ALL the time. Can't get enough. When I'm talking to someone I am preoccupied with how to paint them, what colors in their skin. Painting people is my jam.
But lately in my studio I have been putting on music and painting like this. Abstract.
Getting lost in the colors, the materials and the vibe. Kinda loving it.
Abstract summer is my new jam.
Isn't she cute? It is square which I LOVE and the pages are thicker than the usual - 140 instead of 90 I think. That means it takes paint much better - no warping!!
and my latest drawing obsession: Dudes with Beards.

Soon I will be doing an instagram painting giveaway so don't miss out

Cleaning my studio and clearing my head to make room for some new art. Bigger art and a more free vibe.
My studio space is not huge and longer than wider - it is only 10 ft wide!
Space is at a premium, especially storage space for paintings.
So over the next week or two I will be posting some here for sale ON SALE in the hopes that they will find good homes and get up on some walls to be seen!
This is the first and honestly I love this painting. The pigtails, the color, it works. Link to purchase is below.

Killing many birds with one stone on this night : keeping my skills up, getting to paint with a room full of talented artists, keeping the kid busy, quality time with son and he made a few bucks! Win,win, win.
Here is my friend Kerry's painting of Harry

Well January flew by.
I'm at the beach a lot walking the dogs and heart rocks fill my pockets. Resisting their charms is impossible for me. Remember I wrote this post about collecting heart rocks? I'm still at it.
