Don’t make me Blush!

That’s the name of the latest painting I’ve finished!  Here it is!

"Don't Make me Blush!"

It was commissioned by a friend of mine, but I might try to paint a similar one for myself ! There is much work to be done around our house right now, as we just bought our first place!!! So I should be packing up boxes and such, but finding ways to procrastinate is much more fun.  Blogging and painting and drinking coffee are legitimate tasks though, amiright???

Art at Bumbershoot Theatre!!

It is official~my art is now up and on display!!!! HOOOOLY CRAAAAAAP!! It feels SO fantastic!! Bumbershoot Theatre, a marvelous  theatre company here in Kelowna, has given me this opportunity to show my art, and I am so, SOOO grateful.  It is such a creative little hub, and I am SO excited and honored to be part of the fun.  As of this week, I’m feeling closer than ever to achieving a long-standing dream of mine: being a mom, at home with my kidlets, making art. Nothing sounds more perfect than painting and coloring and playing together, and then sharing all that bright, colorful artwork for all to enjoy.   Here it is!!

Artwork!

Ta-Daaaa!! Me and my paintings!

It is SOOOO EXCITING!!!!!! Never before have my abstract and cartoon paintings been on display together, and I am so happy with it! With MUCH help from my family and friends, we hung the abstract art up higher on the wall for a gallery for grown-ups, and the cartoons low, like a gallery for kids! I’ve always wanted to create art that was accessible and easy to connect to, and that inspired children (and adults) to explore their own creative voices.  Paintings that are bright, colorful, fun, and not too serious-paintings that make people smile. We all can use a pick me up now and then, and I hope my art does that.  Here are close-ups of a couple of pieces:

Owl in a Tree

Toadstool Love

Hey Sugar!

So there’s a little taste!! Thanks so much for taking a look, let me know what you think! And come on down to Bumbershoot Theatre and check it out!! Hoooraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Elvis the Kitten

There’s a new member of the family, and he’s my new art room companion: Elvis the Kitten. So far he is really great company, even when he’s sticking his nose in paint and stepping on my paintings 🙂

It's nice to have company while I paint 🙂
