How cute is this? I got a new desk and redid my studio area. I love it so much! It is the happiest place!
A friend commissioned this portrait for a friend of theirs that had to say goodbye to their dog recently.
I got an iPad and pencil for Christmas and downloaded Procreate to give it a spin. It’s definiely different than a brush on canvas. Here are two cute birds I digitally painted. I am looking forward to exploring this new art form!
I was so fortunate to get to experience Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors exhibit at the High Museum on a preview night. There were fewer people in the gallery last night and I felt I got to truly immerse myself into her Kusama’s colorful world! Here are a few shots from the exhibit. I highly recommend you go to this – photos do NOT do it justice!
If you know me, you know how much I love seeing public art and murals in other cities. I was on a tight schedule in Portland because it was a business trip, but I did get to see some great art not only as I made my way around town, but also at the UVAMC reception at the end of the first day of the conference. Portland is a fun and eclectic city and I hope to go back and spend some more time there soon!
I had a goal to paint five portraits, but in the end (with my busy work schedule), I only had time for four canvases. For a fun personal challenge, I went with an all bird theme, and I must say that my first time painting birds has me absolutley in love with the creatures. I had so much fun getting to know them and their unique behaviors and personalities! I’m excited to share my pieces for my second year as an Art Gone Wild artist for Zoo Atlanta!
