Thank you for all your kind support of my art! It is so much appreciated! I’m off to take a much needed break and will return sometime in February/March, so in the meantime, have a very Happy New Year and stay warm too if you live in a cold climate such as mine! Here’s to all the wonderful possibilities of the coming new year! Cheers!!
Two panels of fun this one was! 72 x 96. Fun to look at it from several angels. Fun to learn new things too, best part of my job! This one can be vertical or horizontal and since it’s two panels it can be placed together in numerous ways. Decided to start with it in this configuration. Cheers!
Actually that happens a LOT! I don’t force my brain to paint something, as thats not how my brain works. My creativity and my brain work better when given free reign. Eventually a birch may arise but in the meantime, what a fun adventure!
Tonight it was James Brown, “Get Up Offa That Thing”! All my neighbors went home so I cranked it up. Makes me soooooo happy! Nice way to shake out some tension and relax! Cheers!
Have I mentioned how much I like color? Perhaps you have noticed? lol Getting ready for a client meeting so pulled out some paintings in the colors they are looking for. It’s fun to make people smile, I love my “job”!
My dear friends from Colorado stopped in and it was fun to see their 14 year old son take in my paintings! He would look and look. I wonder what wheels were turning in his mind. Love when my art has the ability to challenge and captivate, that’s what it’s all about for me! Cheers!
It started with a color chart that I painted for a reference tool…Apparently this is what happens when two Finlanders, both ironically named Heidi, get together on a computer! We are going to print out the color chart as a regular giclee print on paper, then print the color chips on canvas as a canvas wrapped giclee. They are going to be BIG ones!! Should be fun!! From a distance they will have a pattern, up close they will look like pixelated color swaths. Maybe I’ll then paint the corresponging colors over the printed color chips using them as a guide. Maybe it will make a fun textile too. Hum…so many possibilities! Here’s to enjoying the blessings of creativity! Cheers!
What fun bedding for this bunk room! I did an in depth color study before I began painting, to pick out the best palette match. Sure do love my handy dandy paint chart that I made! Saved me hours of ‘pre-work’!
It was a lovely four days! Thank you to those that made it to my show! Not only do I enjoy meeting you and talking about art, I always come away with new learned lessons! I could not do this without you! Life is not lived in a vacuum or on an island alone nor is my art created in stillness and isolation. Your kind words of inspiration are music to my artistic soul. It was such fun to share in the giddiness of when a collector finds a new painting to bring home. Many of my paintings were fortunate enough to find new owners and I’m so humbled to be able to provide you with smiles and something to brighten up your walls. I’m one lucky girl!! Thank you! (and I secretly love when people sit on my chairs and stay for awhile, I sneak photos of them, it always makes me smile!)
