Spending hours each day in the studio this week.
Finished this one just today . . . She makes me happy.
I've got a fire in the belly since spending time with the master's works housed at SFMOMA. I went with my friend, and FEARLESS™ Painting teacher, Connie. (Seriously, have you taken one of her online classes yet? You just gotta.)
Since I'm practically living there, I thought I'd share a few scenes from the studio . . .
And just because I never have, I'm showing some of my Mom's paintings too . . . we share our studio space.
These 3 little gems are a bit of her recent work.
Isn't it rich? She's been painting for a very long time. (I like to think her talent will rub off on me.)
Here she is putting a few finishing touches on a piece.
And her side of the studio -
I know, we're both kind of neat that way....even when flingin' paint.
Can you guess my favorite color (lately)? Swoon. I'm so in love with Golden's metallics....second best is a glitter flecked graphite (but I just can't remember the name.)
Today, I even took the time to sort all my paints - I was positive I was missing some needed colors. Uh...guess not. (Ka-ching!) Well, now I know I got some for the home studio, some for the big studio. (Okay...I got doubles. Damn. I do love me a trip to the art store - as if you couldn't tell.)
This little orange haired baby, has now morphed into this....but she's FAR from finished.
(Sigh...why do I show you works in progress? I think it's just because painting makes me so happy and I want you to be happy too. Doesn't making art make you happy? It's not just me, is it?)
Here's some art journaling supplies....
I must confess, the art journaling has really suffered because I've become so drawn to the canvas. Oh well, ya can't do it all. Although I do try.
Here's another confession . . . here's what sometimes comes after a long day at the studio. (Shhhhhh......Don't rat me out. I'm sure I paint off the calories.)
