Too Hot for Blue…

It’s the last day of September, and the forecast for our area is 100 degrees tomorrow.  On the occasional cool day, I’ve been working on an acrylic painting in small spurts.  In between those sessions, I did a little playing with color:

You can read more about these pieces in my  latest blog post.
 
It’s getting down to those last few weeks before the baby comes, so the goal is to finish up the paintings I have in progress before that happens…a few of which have been sitting around for a while.
 

New gallery added to this website!

In addition to filling out the galleries I have posted on this site, I added a new one:
 Pitchers and Pots!  I spent a lot of time in the last couple years working from photos of Ancient Egyptian pitchers and pots from a museum exhibit, enchanted by their simple, elegant forms.  I also like to collect them in my kitchen, but they don’t last long (thanks to my rambunctious cats) so I tend to keep a few out to admire and hide the rest for future paintings.
 

One final note: not ready to pin just yet…

Redbubble, where I upload my artwork for prints, just added the Pinterest option.  After reading a bunch of arguments for both sides of the Pinterest debate, I’ve decided not to join Pinterest and not to make my work available for “Pinning” on Redbubble (Etsy, unfortunately, doesn’t seem optional). While I appreciate the compliment when someone wants to pin my work, it seems too easy for it to disappear into a sea of copyright violations once it hits that re-pin stage.  Would be curious to hear from other artists who have an opinion on this issue…
