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

"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.

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 :).

This painting "Good Luck" is now in a collection of our dear friends in Boulder, CO.

"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) :)
