I am pleased with my new painting, its larger than I am used to but I love the impact of larger paintings even though they are much more difficult and time consuming.  I study with Nancy Medina.  I have attended her workshops and own her DVDs and I have improved so much with her techniques.  This painting is a very "Nancy" Style painting, but hopefully with my own style that seems to be in a constant state of evolution.  I like taking different classes and workshops and studying different techniques, experimenting, practicing  and bringing a little bit of them into my work, but want my own signature "look".

I am also still struggling with photography, cant get the settings right on my Nikon, I take most of my photos with my Iphone and they are decent but not great resolution.

Back In The Studio

I have been traveling and its nice to be back in the studio.  I have been inspired by 
My journey through Rome, Tuscany, and Paris, and look forward to creating paintings from my travels.  In the meantime I had to get back to my still life painting and was inspired as always by my favorite blog, The Enchanted Home.  I was pleased to hear that Tina liked my painting and it cheered her up after the loss of her mother in law last week.  I am so new to all of this social media stuff, but I know I have to do it and it's been fun finding my way, I am especially fond of Instagram, I am meeting new friends and exploring so many beautiful inspiring people, places and things in the world!
