Chanel Perfume and Flowers

My love of interior design and fashion is always reflected in my work.  I have used my Chanel Noir perfume in previous paintings.  I enjoyed it in this still life with my pink hydrangeas from my garden, and my new Chanel Coffee table book. This painting is 16 x 16" square, acrylic on archival wrapped canvas.  Available to purchase through the daily paintworks gallery and my ETSY shop.

Dream Love Paint

I have been a fan of Dreama Tolle Perry's for quite some time and was excited that she offered an e course called Dream Love Paint, I have been enjoying her inspiring messages as well as her tutorials. There is so much to the course other than just painting instruction.  there's meditations, journaling, one to ones and much more.  Fortunately I have a year to access the content.  I hope she does another one someday, I know it was a tremendous undertaking for her.  Dreama is a genius at color and a true impressionist.  Here are a few of my paintings from the course.

Balance and New paintings

I have been struggling with finding time for painting and the rest of my life, or shall I say finding time for anything other than painting.  I am sure this is common for anyone with a passion.  My husband says I have been balancing just fine and I am over analyzing it.  To become good at painting you have to spend hours and hours and hours at the easel and learning, taking workshops. Then there is the business side of selling my work.  How much effort do I really want to spend marketing and putting myself out there?  I seem to have a nice little following on Etsy and daily paintworks and have little time or inventory to go out and do shows and join art organizations.  I think for now I am happy with the way things are going. I have finally been painting for my own house lately too. Here are a few of my recent paintings, they can be purchased through my ETSY shop or the Daily Paintworks gallery.
