If you need me I won’t be here

Social Media is eating my soul. The heartbreaking news releases and selfish squabbling in the comments section is making me ill.

The best way to deal with this is to simply stay away from social media that gets me into trouble - I’m talking to you, Mr. Book and you, Bitchy Blue Birdie. 

If you’re looking for me in a social app, you will find me on Instagram where I show you behind the scenes shots of my studio as well as works in progress and finished paintings - THAT is where the online fun is right now.

 

Please stop by and say “hello”!

 

Hot Off the Easel Bold Abstract Painting

Here is a hot-off-the-easel painting.

It’s one of those things that I figured would never work out. But I kept at it and even tried to ruin it - and then after I tried to wreck it, it told me it was done. Oh, such fickle paintings!

Still seeking a title for this abstract piece!  

 

Peek in my studio

Here’s a peek at my easel. But I also paint on a table, the wall and the floor. I like to have a variety of surfaces at work at once. I’m currently working on six different paintings. This is a smaller painting is 12” x 12” and is on panel. The background is a smooth metallic silver. It will be coated with a shiny varnish when I’m done. Make sure you get on the list to see the finishes pieces first!

Happy Abstract Art in Pink and Yellow

I love the contrast of the pink and yellow against the bold black areas in this painting.

I’m still working out a name for it, but I’m feeling very attached to a name related to beach umbrellas. Add this to your collection. Buy it here.

Abstract Paintings Back In The Studio

It was a happy homecoming as I returned my paintings from Darker Joys back into the studio. I’m especially fond of a newer piece, “Head of Honey”. This is an 18” x 24” painting that packs a lot of power in it’s mid-sized canvas.

It took so long to finish this one. I had almost given up on it but worked the many layers until it came to life.

A Group Of Mini Small Abstracts For Your Gallery Wall

Everyone has been going absolutely bananas for gallery wall layouts. Some people like to put tiny pops of color on the wall. I have a swarm of itty bitty paintings that will give you one little pop or grouped together to make a fairly decent sized BANG.

A Painting About Candy & Kittens

Who doesn’t love candy and kittens?

Who doesn't love candy or kittens? This is painting about some of my favorite things - puppies will be up next, I'm sure.

Candy and Kittens is a playful abstract painting of "candyful" colors peeking through a maze of white. This abstract painting features a range of springtime colors such as light green, pink, gentle orange and sweet pinks. Playful kittenish elements add to the fun of this painting. The sides are painted black and I’ve already wired it so you pop this one right one the wall as soon as you get it home.

What are your favorite things?


Rent Big Paintings for Your Large Walls

Have you got a large space to fill right away? Did you know that you can rent art? Renting art is a fantastic option when you have large walls to fill or if you are just kind of fickle.

The Cambridge Art Association offers an art rental program to corporations. My artwork is in their library of available works for rent. Parades and Popsicles is going off to spend the next six months in a local business. It will be back at the end of the year. If you want to know when it will be back, sign up for my list so you can be the first to know when it is back in the studio.

Art Workshop & Exhibit Viewing with the Artists of Darker Joys

Join us Thursday, March 21, 7-8:30pm for our Darker Joys workshop to spend the afternoon decorating a large triple layer “cake” with acrylic paint and glitter using traditional cake decorating tools. Katie Lane will demonstrate her mad mixed media skills (she uses cake decorating equipment in her daily practice, along with glitter and fluorescent paints). Guests will participate in the decorating process and will be encouraged to release their inhibitions and let their inner children out. This event will be a fun and hedonistic escape from our daily stressful lives.⁣

The Inspiration Behind "Bugle Beads"

I had a remarkably creative mother. Our home was filled with tons of craft and art supplies to play with and dig through. My new painting, “Bugle Beads”, reminds me of going on a little journey through Mom’s bead collection. Daydreaming about what all these glittery and magical elements can become. Sifting through boxes of shimmering beads or watching the light dance along the surface of a dress she’d adorned with them.

I’ve captured that magic here on this painting. Enjoy!



I Owe Pink An Apology

The color - not the pop star.

I’d always despised the color pink - thinking it was wimpy and lacking life. Clearly I had been hanging around with all the wrong pinks. It might have been a sad misconception I picked up from my mom. She also hated pink.

Until she got to be about 80. One day she confessed drily, “I like pink. It is because I’m old, I guess. I don’t know. When you get to be an old lady you start liking pink.”

Then we laughed and laughed. But she wasn’t joking - she liked pink.

I started in painting with pink as an act of rebellion - surely REAL artists don’t use pink, do they?

I choose not just “pinky pink’ but what a friend refers to as “PANK” - bright, burn-your-retinas-pink. The pinkest pink of all pinks. Magenta. Fluorescent Pink. Hot Pink. I love them.

Sometimes the pink covers the background and sometimes it is a coloristic surprise as in my painting, Happy Catch.

Please forgive me pink. I was wrong. You add life and spice to my world.

Happy Catch
