Painting of the week: Damask and Orange Flowers

Damask and Orange Flowers
16x16 Acrylic
on gallery wrapped canvas (2in.)

This was a fun painting to paint. I wanted to paint something a little more serious, but not realism by any means. This is kind of a half-way-in-between-ish painting. Check my website for more details.

I am finding it difficult to even come up with 1 thing about myself!!!

1. I love American Idol. Even in it's 7th season. I had a moment of let down this year when I turned 29, and realized that I am too old now to audition. It was a sad moment because just the moment before that moment, I remembered that I couldn't sing.
2. I am a computer freak. Can't live without it. We have 5 computers in our house. I don't know how we got this technology dependant. Aaron and I each have a lap top, we have a kids computer, a family computer, and a media center to replace the dvd, vcr, dvr, tivo thing (funny that we have this cause I watch about 1 hour of tv a week.)
3. I graduated number 1 in my class in college! Doesn't that sound amazing? Well, let it be known that I was the ONLY one in my class. (I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Art. Most people didn't even know that was possible. My degree category was the only one in the commencement program that only had one person in it).
4. I have been to 15 countries (including the US).
5. My website was featured as #1 on sk*rt for 2 days! That was fun. I got lots of comments from people all over the country.
6. I love to do house projects. This year we conquered laying our own bamboo floor and tiling a backsplash in our kitchen.
7. I have a subscription to 6 house design magazines. (All you have to do is call yourself as an interior designer, and new ones will turn up in the mail all the time!) My favorite is Dwell!

Here's a little painting of a dancer inspired by my little 4 year old dancer
(Although it looks nothing like her).
Does every little girl love to put on dress ups and dance around the house as much as mine?
Lots of other fun little items there too!

Happy New Year!

Hello fellow art lovers. I have taken a 5 day break from painting, and am getting back up on the horse tonight. I have 2 commission paintings for the month of January that need to be finished right away. I have decided that I am going to limit my commission paintings to 15 for the year. I did about 15 for Christmas this year and MAXED myself right out. I am going to concentrate on my gallery work and on my prints. So, if you are ready to put your name on my waiting list for this year, please email me soon! Watch for magnets, note pads and fun prints to come soon!
