New Blog Feature: Art I wish I Made.

I’m starting a new blog feature called Art I Wish I Made where Im going to post other people’s work that inspires me.

First up: I love this painting over Anna Spiro’s fireplace.

I dont know who made it, it could be her two year old’s for all I know, but I really just love it. I hunted all over her blog to try and find a source, but no luck.  And I kind of love and hate that parrot at the same time.

Also, Im going to be posting some videos of my art process sometime soon. Now that its summer and I am going to have the space to work outdoors, I can really get into my fun art making. Between the belly and the lack of outdoor space, I kind of felt stunted all winter long. I think you guys will enjoy seeing how I make my paintings. Or I hope you will!

I also have an amazing post coming(its taking so long to write…) about how to stretch your own canvas. Susan Brinson used to work in a frame shop and she came over and taught me and Erica how to stretch canvas like a pro. Erica actually bought a gigantic painting from me so we stretched that one for her. Here it is in its final form:

You can see its over 5 feet tall. Now I have to make sure she sends me pictures of it hanging in her apartment- ECHEM ERICA!

I love making big paintings and I’m always thrilled when someone really loves my work enough to put it in their home. Thanks Erica….and everyone who has a piece of me hanging in their space!

  3. Hey now lady! It’s wonderful to admire someone elses work….but let’s not forget that your work is fabulous too….and I saw on twitter you and Ms Design Blahg {Erica} learned how to stretch canvas. Wish I could find classes here for that kind of thing.

  4. I love these choices. The first one is my favourite, I admire abstract art as well as surrealist, baroque… I just love so much of it, great blog BTW! :)
