Oil on canvas 16X20". SOLD

I have been very busy with work and family stuff during holidays. I have a few more months of craziness ahead of me and am so looking forward to a more simplified life (but not simple :)).

Happy New Year! I hope it is the most productive, happiest and busiest year ever!

Jobs and art

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.

Yes, I am almost there. Can't wait!

My art is back at home and I feel more peaceful that the paintings are back. I look at them and realize how much my technique has improved from the early paintings on. I like to have my older and newer paintings up to remind me how much i still have to learn and paint! I can't wait to be able to paint more...

I had a lot of great feedback on my zebra paintings. I am going to paint more paintings using just simple shapes and only two colors.

"Five Spring Birches" textured birch thick texture painting

I ordered my business cards today finally. I am such a slacker :) They should look pretty good. I made some quick on the printer last night but they kept printing outside the printing range, so i finally gave up. This week is turning out to be super busy - plus my little one was throwing up last night. He looks and feels good today. I have a feeling he ate way too much!!!!

16"X20" on Ampersand panel

Tomorrow I will be at the Cherry BLossom Gallery from 5 pm to 9 pm - Join us for an evening of fun and art! The Ice sculptures are already in making - ice sculptors are hard at work! Cherry Blossom Gallery is right across the street from 4-5 sculptures. Hope to see you there :)

"The Secret Path" textured aspen birch painting

16"X20" Acrylic on Ampersand panel

I am really into painting birches these days - I even painted another one while at the show on Saturday. I am thinking what i will be painting for demo on the next Saturday. There is an ice sculpture show in old town Loveland and I will keep my paintings up at Cherry Blossom Gallery over the week and be there again next week. Looking forward to mingling with other artists again. I feel so happy live in an area where there are many wonderful professional artists. I feel humbled and inspired to paint more.
Well, back to work - so much to do!!!

Due to allergy reasons mainly, and my fear of a dry tree catching on fire, I put up a pre lit artificial tree every year for the holidays. Of course, this choice is part of my recycle/freecycle/reduce/reuse policy that runs in our family's lifestyle.
We bought the tree once and can reuse it every year. It reduces the expenses, helps the environment and looks wonderful! I love the fact that it is prelit too! It saves me so much time, and it is particularly important to use my time wisely this year. I would so much rather spend time with my wonderful kids and husband than go shopping for stuff. 

This year we are making most of the presents ourselves and as every year we emphasize the importance of being with family and friends rather than contributing to overwhelming consumerism. If you go to the mall you have to wonder if and what crisis/recession is going on in our country - stores are full of people. And i noticed they are stressed and grumpy looking.

I choose not to spend my days before the holidays shopping and frantically trying to get that super duper deal. Sometimes we forget how much good we already have in our lives - our friends, family, roof over our heads, jobs, food, clothes, beautiful nature around us. I am grateful for all the wonderful people in my life and I am looking forward to a peaceful and hopefully snowy holidays :)

I called this painting "Good Luck" - crows are thought to bring good luck in many cultures.

"Birches IV"

I spent most of the day at the show on Saturday and painted. It was a different kind of experience - painting in front of other people, but I decided to push my own limits and see if I can do that! It was not bad at all :). You can tell it is a big deal for me because i am still thinking about it. I will have another demonstration on Saturday this weekend.

Painting at the show

there I am - painting in front of people! This was my first time painting in public  - a bit scary at first but I decided in advance to do a safe painting (birch trees) :)
