Put down some more layers today-love where this is going! This is a totally new palette for me but I still wanted some contrast😍It’s not complete yet (and this is just a tiny snapshot of it) but again, I’m counting this layer as Day 11 bc it’s a large painting. .
•Are you diggin’ this new color palette
Today I was in Frankfurt am Main at the fair "Heimtextil". It was wonderful and very inspiring. Unfortunately today was the last day and I could not see everything because time was too short. But the people I met got everything balanced. Thanks to the exhibitors!
Heute war ich in Frankfurt am Main auf der Messe "Heimtextil". Es war wunderbar und sehr inspirierend. Leider war heute der letzte Tag und ich habe nicht alles sehen können, da die Zeit zu knapp war. Aber die Menschen, die ich kennen lernen konnte, haben alles ausgeglichen. Danke an die Aussteller!

Say hello to my first painting of 2019! Inspired by one of the amazing views from my trip to Maui last year.
Got any title ideas for this gentle giant Because... I got nothing. 😂
The word "basking' keeps comes to my mind but I would love to hear your suggestions!
P.S. This painting is headed to Crossroads Art Center tomorrow and hopefully (fingers crossed) will be accepted into the Juried All-Media Show!

While I was painting this piece this morning, I checked my Facebook because I’m following the status of my dear friend who is in the hospital. I learned that she passed away this morning. 🐛
In some Native traditions, it is recognized that the breath carries the vibrations and energies of intention and prayer within the waters that are secreted when we breathe/speak/sing. 🦋
I created this entire piece by blowing my breath through a straw and moving, swirling color around. (Only a very tiny area was sculpted with a palette knife). I carried Mary in my heart and blew my prayers for her and her family into the paint. 💗
This was before I knew she had received her wings. 🌈
Day 11 of my #dailypainting practice and challenge. All dailies are painted with #goldenpaints on archival paper and are $35 (plus $5 US S+H). #30paintingsin30days #apaintingaday #dailybird #blownacrylic #pouredacrylic
My most often used color combo finally begged me to make a color chart. The subtle soft shades are 😍 My book of color charts has become an essential resource for me. I look at it regularly for color inspiration whether I’m looking for a color to reach out to me or I have a color in mind and need to know how to make it. And I find that making the charts is so satisfying, relaxing and therapeutic - the opposite of what painting feels like on a bad day. It’s a great warmup and/or procrastination technique as well 😉
