The Future Is Bright
Now then, there are plans for after this huge project is finished. Among those plans are things big and small. Some are an inventory sale happening April 9 to 11th. Ha, yes, my artwork inventory has gotten pretty overflowed... So I realized the need for a sale! Please visit the event page to learn more by clicking the link below. - But make sure to finish reading this article first! -
But also, I've been thinking lately that I need to get more masterful and confident in my portraiture skills - abstract, surreal, and realistic. I'm really excited for the ideas that have come to me on how I'm going to go about this!
Below is just a taste of previous pieces, which are part of different collections over the years that I have done. I'm using these, along with some other inspirations, to imagine what this new collection might look like.
Over many years of creating fine art, I now have a body of work that I can pull and recycle inspiration from. The decision has been made to tie together my most recent abstract landscapes with encouraging portraits in the foreground. These will be using oil and acrylic to create a full painting series. I'm looking forward to this collection because one of the themes will be pushing women to genuinely acknowledge their beauty, even without makeup, even with wrinkles, even with age spots, even after children, and even with or without anything else. We are all, not just women, created as amazing pieces of artwork. It'll be so great to work on these pieces and see the outcome have a chance to encourage folks.
More details on the progress of paintings, events, gallery show, and more will be announced.
Here's some fellow artists and folks that I highly recommend and have loved working with!
