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!

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.

Southern Plantation Mural

Earlier this month I did this mural at a senior living center for their residents activities room. A simple one to make the room a little more fun and inviting. Here is a fun panoramic shot:

Happy New Year!

NYE us masks 2

I have a busy month ahead between the studio and some commissioned projects! I am looking forward to a great year full of art and fun and adventure (and hopefully a trip to Italy–if I can find a way to pull that off). I kicked off 2015 at a masquerade party and made masks for my husband and I. that was a really fun project. I love stretching my creative muscles beyond the canvas!

Starry Night Over Gotham City

One of my favorite Christmas projects this year was this painting for my best friend. She’s obsessed with batman, and also is a sometimes artist herself when she’s not busy being a grown up sales/business person. I really enjoyed making this for her, and almost nothing tops her reaction to it!
