Since my last post about moving away from creating dragonflies and
recycled art, I wanted to share what I have been working on lately...
I've dabbled with paintings in the past but moving into our new
home a little over a year ago reignited my passion for painting and
I'm having so much fun! My husband and I decided we would
both love to have, for the most part, pieces that I have created in our home.
I've also been busy adding paintings to my Etsy shop.
This is the first one I made that hangs in our dining area.
For this one I actually built a wood canvas using 1 x 2's and thin plywood.
An air compressor and nailer make building things like this a snap.
Just like my heavily textured mermaids and angel wings...I love texture
and I seem to be incorporating lots of it in my paintings as well.
The tree has metallic accents in the circles that really catch the light.
I created this pair of dancing peacock feathers for the bedroom.
They are made on wood canvases as well.
More texture and metallic paints in this set.
Here is tree diptych painting that hangs in one part of the family room.
I also built the wood canvases that these are painted on.
Again...lots of texture!
"Yellow Trees" ...so original right? :)...is also in our family room
and also on a wood canvas.
Highlights of metallic gold.
I have noticed a nature theme in my paintings such as
birds, feathers, trees, vines, leaves and sea life.
If you know me, it makes sense ;)
Here is a large 24 x 48 egret painting I made for the master bath.
More yummy texture.
I painted him on a ready made canvas.
Thanks for taking a look!
These are all the paintings I've completed so far for our home.
Next time I'll share the paintings I've been selling in my shop.
Thanks so much for reading...until next time!
Take a peek in my Etsy shop for a preview of paintings
I'll be sharing in a later blog post or find me on
