Big Easel postponed until May 2nd

April showers bring May flowers!  I had a feeling all week that the prospect of rain was going to force the Big Easel to be postponed.  It will now be held May 2nd and hopefully it won’t rain then!  I don’t mind…three more weeks of prep!  (Actually, I was kind of hoping to get the 50+ painting out of my living room this weekend.  Oh well!)  So see y’all then!

Custom Goat Painting for Nursery

This goat doesn’t have a name yet but he is going in one lucky kid’s (ha!) room!

Animal Nursery Art – Vintage Farm Chic Toddler Room on projectnursery.com

Projectnursery.com is the BEST source for nursery and kid room inspiration.  Two years ago I submitted Georgia’s newborn nursery to the monthly room contest and got 3rd place for August 2013.  Not too shabby.  When we moved I knew I wanted to submit her toddler room and six months later I finally got around to doing it.  Her room is part Georgia (animals, books) and part me (vintage furniture, cool art, “Glimmer” the BEST EVER Sherwin-Williams paint color).  So it’s on projectnursery.com.  Check it out if you have some time.  Hattie the cow is a new painting – soon to be for sale on Etsy.

Big Easel Art Show in River Ranch Lafayette, LA – April 11, 2015

A couple of months ago I decided on a whim that I wanted to participate in the Big Easel show in River Ranch.  I’ve wanted to do it in the past, but it just never worked out (pregnant one year, 7 month old baby the next).  So I decided this was the year.  What I didn’t know was that it was juried.  I thought you just signed up, paid some sort of entry fee, and sold art.  Oops.  I thought what the heck and got the application anyway.  It took me 3+ hours to write my CV, which makes me sound WAY cooler than I actually am not because I wrote it that way, but I just didn’t realize that in five years I had accomplished so much.  I don’t really think of myself as an “artist” really, I’m just that girl that paints the funny animals.  I also never thought that I’d EVER have to write a bibliography after college.   Anyway, so I sent in my stuff and got accepted to round two…and then I sent some more stuff…and I got in!  Yay!  So I’ll be a busy bee the next several weeks planning this thing to death…oh and painting.  :)

So come visit me on April 11th in River Ranch 8am-4pm!

 

Great Dane – Custom Pet Portraits

A couple of months ago I did a painting of a great dane named Fred.  It was an awesome painting, if I do say so myself, and one of my favorites that I’ve ever done.  Nancy, Fred’s mom, happened to post a photo of the painting on a great dane lovers website and Boom!  - emails out the wazoo.  I got a few commissions from that post so Thanks Nancy!  Now I think danes are my favorite dogs to paint.  They’re goofy, I’m goofy.  I like their droopy eyes.  And all the ones I’ve met have fitting names…Fred, Nelson, Norm.  It makes me laugh.

Here’s Fred in case you didn’t see him.
