It's 11:50 am and I am still in my pajamas and have not done anything but read my emails and answer them. I am going to wash and stretch a 30" x 30" silk scarf and start to paint it. I am also going to take pictures so you can watch my progress. That is it folks, just tune in to see the progression. Love
Missy and Morning Glories is a painting done on silk. I am framing this silk scarf for our opening at our East Colony Fine Art Gallery. The profits of our sales will benefit the SPCA. The opening will be the beginning of November 2008. I am having a great time with these silk paintings. The scarf size is 22" x 22" and with the mat and frame should be about 29" x 29". Would like some comments on this latest painting of mine.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I went to college when I was 37 years old. I loved it so much, I was a sponge and absorbed anything and everything about art. I started out wanting to be a portrait artist but ended up using pencil and colored pencils. I made quite a name for myself with my drawings. I won many awards. When I needed a break from that I went into oil sticks and just loved them and again did very well with awards. I finally went back to my oils but always felt frustrated with them I wanted to be free from all constraints, I am now working in acrylics and loving them. So now the sky is the limit. I just want to go and do everything I feel and want to express.
