#15 - any occasion

#15 "Any Occasion" - 15x11 Acrylic on paper
It's hard for me to keep up when I'm traveling. This is an iPhone photo. I'll have to re-shoot when I get back to the up north studio. Go ahead.... buy yourself some flowers because it's Friday. Or because it's sunny. Or because you made your bed. Or because your dog loves you. Or because you love your dog. Or.....because.

Bouquet #9

Bouquet #9 ~ 7x5 Acrylic on paper $54
Bouquet # 9 began it's life as a demo piece for the Acrylic 101 classes that I teach. She got shined up a bit and completed. I'm especially pleased with her table cloth. 

I was thrilled to learn that 2 of my paintings (below) got into the Oliver Art Center's all media show. I'll be anxious to go to the opening on Friday night! 
"Hook Line and Sinker" 12x12

texture! bouquet 7

Texture and movement bouquet 7 ~ 12x12 acrylic on canvas
I don't often use texture medium... It's not that I don't like it...  I'm just too impatient to wait for it to dry. It was a lot of fun to play with though. (Golden light molding paste) This one is another example that will be up at Crooked Tree Art Center in Petoskey, MI toward the end of the month. I'm teaching Acrylic 101 there next month. Hooray!

bouquet 6 not watercolor

Bouquet 6 ~ 11x14  ~Acrylic on watercolor paper
I'm teaching Acrylic 101 at Crooked Tree Art Center in Petoskey and in Traverse City this fall. The Petoskey location invited instructors to show paintings at the end of the month. Since the class explores acrylic, beginning with really watery applications to thick impasto; I decided to show examples of this versatility. This is the "watercolor-y" example. This certainly reminded me of how impatient I've become.... lots of layers of watery color on this one....cue hairdryer noise.

Collage Bouquet #5

Collage Bouquet #5 ~ 7x5 ~ Acrylic and Collage $54
I have a lot of bouquets going at the same time...but this one hit the finish line first today. I'm a bit partial to the two eyed bloom front and center.
I'm participating in Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days challenge... Not positive that I'll be able to post all 30 days, but it should be close. Care to join me?
