Stage 2: Adding some paint to the shapes.

In my many, MANY attempts at a vineyard -inspired painting for “Lushes with Brushes,” I decided to start over. Here is what I call, “Stage 2.” At least, I call it that today. It could become stage 3 or 4. Working out my painting process when I don’t really know my painting process is not so easy. But the fun of painting on the Monaco Family Vineyard with six people this Fall will be worth it.

Collage of the Day 7.28.12

I rubbed a bunch of stamp inks on this one. Then, colored areas with caran d’ ache crayons.

It measures about 3×3 inches.

Today’s inspiration

I loved the colors on the cover of the paper source catalog this month!

Salt Lake Costume 6×6

This little painting is on clapboard panel and came from my walk through Sugarhouse with the kids and the dog last week. I saw the Salt Lake Costume Company sign and I loved the colors. ┬áThus, I was inspired to make this. No, it doesn’t look like the sign at all, but it will do.

 

4×4 blocks

I’ve been working on these little teeny ones this week, I love the small size!

Window – 20×20

 

This is one of my larger pieces that I took to 15th Street Gallery yesterday for a show next month. It should be a good one.

Landscape02: Mixed Media on Panel

My baby is waking up so I have to keep this short, i LOVED using a quilting iron on the wax in this piece, it gave me so much control. I’ll have to write more later… but here is a picture.
