So I did a thing. I set up an account with Fine Art America. Where you can buy my photographs as a print with or without a frame, mug, notebook, card, t-shirt and a few other thing's.

I've been having so much fun taking pictures at flower farms and farmers markets that I wanted offer this option.

I may offer my artwork on this website as well but no yet. Check it out and tell me what you think.

Got my paints out last night and painted another Van Gogh inspired painting. I wanted to paint myself into the boat but need to practice. So I painted my hat in the boat.

This painting has a few different personal meanings and was fun to paint. And can I just say, painting all those dashes takes a long time.

What do you think?

Where have I been?

Well after my paintings inspired by Van Gogh, I took a little break from painting to enjoy the sights and smells of summer.

Weekly, I’ve been going to a different farmers market and enjoying time outside (before it gets too hot) and enjoying all the things. I found a very cool photo setting combo on my phone so I’ve taking some AMAZING photos of flowers. Check them out in this set of photos.

I’m finding that happy places don’t always have to be painting. But happy places come in all forms, shapes and sizes. And the best happy place is me being happy in all the places.

Enjoy the pics. I have at least one more Van Gogh inspired painting that wants me to grab my brushes and paint so we shall see what the weekend brings.

Enjoy!

I think it needs a butterfly or bumble bee on the right but still thinking about it. So for now, I am off to a sunflower farm for some inspiration.

A friend of mine asked me if I heard about the new painting discovered by Van Gogh?

I googled it and found that…
‘The portrait was found while using an X-ray to perform an inspection of
Van Gogh's "Head of a Peasant Woman”

It was on the back of the painting covered in thick layers of cardboard and glue, according to the galleries. This was a practice Van Gogh was known for, as he chose to save money and paint on the other side of his canvases instead of painting over his other paintings.’

I think this is more common than we may realize.

I do not stretch my own canvas, so I don’t flip the canvas but I do paint over them sometimes.

Even the one I did last night with the sunflowers and starry night like sky, was once a silver background with a deer head in pink flowers.

Artist is as artist does!

The big reveal!!!

This is what I started last night. I love the handle on the jug and how that part turned out.

Going to start another one, same concept with the rectangle but different subject.

Wanted to paint for a little bit. Deciding exactly what to paint….i May have to do a couple of versions of this because I am IN LOVE.

Wish I started earlier but I need the background to really dry well so I can sketch over it a little….fun fact, I don’t pre draw on the canvas most of the time, it’s just hand drawn with the paint. Sometimes I use templates (like for the fairy)

I’m so happy with this already. Will finish it tomorrow.

Night friends.

I’m not sure I had ever noticed this painting before last weekend. Maybe it was the crows or how they animated them to fly out of the painting.

I love that seeing his art inspired, encouraged and stretched me as an artist. Honoring him with my spin of the oversized single sunflower and oversized crow(e) makes me want to do more.

I have many feelings and observations I have in his and my version. What do you see and feel?

I’m still working on this one but could not wait to post it.

This is my tribute to Van Gosh. It’s my version of the Wheat field with crows in the center of a sunflower 🌻 with a big crow.

I love how this came together. Do you think Vince would like it? I do.

I am so inspired and encouragement by the Van Gogh Experience today.

I can’t wait to pick up my paint brushes. I learned so much about him.

PS Please read the caption on each pic 🌻

I’m super excited! Tomorrow, I am going to the Van Gogh Experience with one of my dearest friends.

I see some impressionist influence in future paintings!

Already doing the happy dance!

Fun part about taking all my art work off the walls to take them to a vendor event, is putting them back up until the next one or until something sells.

Really fun day.
I’m pooped
Ended early because of the rain rolling in. Thankfully I got all my stuff in the car before the rain started.

That’s a wrap.
Until the next one.

The best part of my day is people watching. I ordered 150 stickers to give away….a way to get butts in the seats so to speak. It has been a joy to watch people look and look and look to find the perfect one for them.

All packed up and ready for tomorrow’s event. Yes I use laundry baskets to transport my artwork. Necessity is the mother of invention and I use what I have.

And now all I want to do is paint!

Please pray for good weather and lots of my artwork to sell

Ok friends, I am creating several albums of artwork for sale. You are welcome to shop anytime.

Post a comment SOLD on the item of your choice.

If you buy (comment sold and pay) anything before Sunday, I will keep your item at home and not take it to craft fair. We can work out getting it to you.

FYI, some items may be in more than one album.

06/22/2022

PRIDE Festival is SOLD OUT for this Sunday.

I am planning on posting the paintings that I have for sale here on my page. Many you have seen what I’ve painted but if you are local and wanted to buy a painting I don’t want to exclude you!

I will post an album with paintings and painted bottles for sale. You can Venmo or CashApp or PayPal me the money and I will keep your painting here at home until we can arrange to meet up.

If you are not local or not sure you want a 16 x 20 painting, remember you can always get it on a mug or cards or notebooks.

Have questions?
Please ask!

I’ve added my newest designs to my Cafe Press store. If you like any of my paintings, you can get them on a mug, water bottle, notebook and more!

I’ve partnered with Cafe Press to create an on demand option. I load my images and select the product options. You order. They print and ship it to you. It’s a cool way to own my artwork without owning the painting.

Wowzers what a busy but super fun painting weekend. I created 7 unique pieces of art for the craft fair which is in just 14 days. I hope to do a few more before the event so I can bring lots of options.

What I love most about art is each one is so different from the next. And while I wanted to recreate a few things, I just can’t seem to paint the same thing twice.

Which one(s) is your favorite??? I definitely have one….or two.
