WHATWHYWHENHOW: Artwork Analysis 13


“Survive” What: There is quite a bit going on in this piece, so much so that I did not know how to start this post off! I sat for a while just looking at the screen & at the random things in the room and, I kid you not, I said: “Aaaaaahhhhhh!” Writer’s block is…

WHATWHYWHENHOW: Artwork Analysis 11


Another in a series of analyses on my art. This one’s late! I’ve done separate posts before on  two of the pieces individually (just click or search the tags ‘oil paint’ or ‘paintings’ and you will see all those posts). Most of the posts have just been to do with my progress, but not on…

UPDATE: wrapped up and sent off with a tear…i miss my paintings


Weeeeeeeeeep!!!! I did it. It had to be done. *sniff* I mailed two paintings to a buyer (or that other fancy word people who sell their wares like to use: patron) on November 2nd.

Being somewhat of a perfectionist, I became somewhat perturbed and annoyed. Silently so. My roommate even noticed a change in my temperament from cheerful to meh. But then I…

HMMMM…WHAT WILL THIS BE?: new art


Here is a quick shot of a new piece I am working on. Right now it’s just a canvas board covered with cadmium yellow paint atop my French easel, appearing to be an ultra minimalist piece. But soon it will have more added to it. I will be sure to post the final work!

A MULTI-TASKING GALLERY: a day at City Art Gallery


When I lived in South Carolina (I moved to FL, this month!), I made an effort to visit this very chill and awesome gallery in Columbia, SC. I call this a multi-tasking gallery because it is 3 things rolled into one: exhibit/gallery space, a place to buy art and a place to buy art supplies. There…

WHATWHYWHENHOW: Artwork Analysis 5


Another in a series of analyses on my art. Feel free to comment with questions you may still have. 3 Paths WHAT: Looks like a cluster of well placed strokes done in a painting frenzy, huh? Or maybe some of you are thinking, “That is the COOLest letter “A” I have ever seen!” I’ll give…

My Favorite Art Media: the right tools make the right art!!


  I just wanted to put together a list of my favorite art media (supplies). I encourage you to post, in COMMENTS, your favorite(s) and why!
