Art Gone Wild @ Zoo Atlanta

The Art Gone Wild Fundraiser took place over the weekend kicking off with an art show on Friday night, and a two day sale over the weekend. It was such a joy to be a part of this event, and I can’t wait for next year as I hope to be selected as an artist for Zoo Atlanta again!

Art Gone Wild Paint Out Week

I had a fantastic week meeting artists and animals alike as I started my collection for the show next weekend! I hope you enjoy these paintings and sketches. I will be sharing the framed pieces soon!

Treklanta

I cannot believe that I forgot to share this with you guys! Last month I was a guest artist at Treklanta. I was stationed in the main ballroom and did live painting of the panels and the events. Special thanks to Mel’S. Creations for having me. See more pictures in my facebook abum here.

Sugar Skulls for Free Art Friday (last week)

Last week’s them for Free Art Friday was butterflies, but I wanted to do something besides simply butterflies. So I drew up a few sugar skull ladies and gave them little swarms of butterflies! I dropped these in Uptown Columbus during the St Patrick’s Day festivities. Hope they went to a good home!

TamaraPaints365 – Day 1

I am starting a personal challenge to do one painting a day for a year to improve my skills and challenge myself to be more spontaneous in my subject matter. Sometimes it may overlap the Columbus project, since I love it here so much.

Yesterday was Day 1! Wish me luck!

TamaraPaints Columbus – Dillingham Street Bridge

I am really excited because those cool notebook peeps I told you about last week (Notes Notebooks) created a custom painting book for me with watercolor paper to hold up to my adventures. Having the proper paper makes a huge difference!

This was painting on the curved steps off the Chattahoochee Riverwalk (behind the CSU theater). Pictured is the Dillingham Street Bridge and the railroad bridge beyond. I am really loving this new book! PAINT ALL THE THINGS!

New(ish) Project: Tamara Paints Columbus

I decided to start an art journal filled with art from my city. Here is what I have so far. My goal is one to two new illustrations a week.  These were done in a Notes Blank notebook. I am happy to support a small local business so if you wanna check them out click here.

First I had to decorate the cover. I am using #TamaraPaintsColumbus on social media. It’s on the bottom of the cover too, just not in the picture.

The first illustration was done at Iron Bank Coffee.

Back in December we had a candlelight flash mob, so that is where this illustration came from.

Next was the Uptown Fountain – it is located on Broadway between 10th and 11th Streets.

Finally I have the adorable kid in the rain statue at the corner of 9th and Broadway, I believe. Might need to double check that location.
