new work

I am so happy to show you some photos of the new collection over the next few weeks. I didn't exactly know how to go about photographing the new canvases, but with a little guidance they came out great. Thanks so much. This one is called "music matters". It's 12x12 - and signed on the side. hope you enjoy.

Annina Vogel

I wear silver. But I have been wearing more gold. Although I am very selective, I would wear anything and everything from designer Annina Vogel. Each piece is one of a kind. See more of her beautiful work here.

whats up and bumble and bumble

Couple Thank-yous today to
for featuring me and my work! Also a huge thank you to all of you photographers who commented to a below post and responded otherwise. I got the new canvases photographed yesterday. It was very difficult in my given just-relocated, and relocating-again-in-July situation. However, I did it! I always get things done thanks to all of you!
I cannot wait to show you all of the photos this week!! For now...

as you can tell, I use a wooden surface and a plain backdrop. I took the paintings from a billion angles (buyers always request a several). I also found out in my chats that magazines do not like props in the shots- so, they were removed- a note to other artists reading. And I am having the website edited as I type! THANK YOU SO MUCH for you guidance.

Onto some more thoughts for the day. I'm growing out a haircut and there is no hair product I love more than bumble and bumble. I could be a spokesperson. Checkout their new photos of pretty, and messy waves. Yay spring!

I know I've said it before but I don't go a day without the surf spray...

Can you help me this weekend?

I need to figure out a way to photograph my new custom canvases. Below you will see photos of the making of one of the newest. Each is on a custom canvas that is very deep on the sides- 2 1/2 inches. They should be photographed in natural light b/c some, like this one have touches of oil paint mixed in with the acrylic. I have thought about this for months and have not come up with any ideas because as new ones are added, I need to be able to return to the same spot to photograph more. I need some input and ideas. please help!
This one took quite some time, hope you like it. It's large, 36x24 and on a custom made canvas. The violet is oil and the rest is acrylic. I have three shows scheduled to show them off which I'll be telling you about really shortly, but first- need to have some quick photos taken. Any ideas?

I heart dunlin

Yes I'm fussy about everything, but one thing specifically is black bags. I'm not sure way I always feel like I have to make sure they are just the right amount of worn in but still have amazing strusture, maybe some slouch, not too shiny... This is why I heart dunlin. Now I have to decide which I love most. Every time I think I have chosen which I like best, I change my mind!!!

Check out dunlin's website and more beautiful images here.

jen altman

A huge Thanks from the bottom of my heart today. Thanks for supporting my artwork over at dujour yesterday & today. I know not many people who visit may know what type of work they are seeing, but many of you support me in every way. I sometimes feel like I might give up without your constant support. Thank you.
As an artist I am always in search of inspiration. I visit Jen Altman's site all of the time. I have been toying with photography for a while but I haven't shared much of it yet- I learn alot from her! I hope you'll visit her blog, and her fabulous etsy shop.More fun stuff for your weekend :
Cute readers at urban
sweet stuff at preset and correct
Just sold out of smalls in the birdcage tee! woot woot!

OH- Do this. I knew I'd be a doozy:
I was 44% vintage modern
33% french eclectic, and
23% cottage chic.
