Memorial Day, Murals and Guitars

I hope everyone had a good Holiday weekend. I’m working through it so we can go camping this week. We always go camping the week AFTER Memorial day. We are the kind of campers that want to get away from everyone! Even in New Mexico, that is impossible to do Memorial Day weekend, so we wait until Tuesday when everyone else is back at work.

I’m writing this blog ON Memorial Day and remembering all the brave men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. I was in the military during Desert Storm and personally knew a few of those people. I will never forget them, their sacrifice or the families they left behind.

Over the weekend, I started my guitar painting for the Sierra Club show in August. I’ve had this Strat body sitting in my studio for literally YEARS! It has been patiently waiting for me to make it beautiful. It is still in progress and I’m hoping to make this one my first playable guitar painting. I’m counting on my husband to help me with building the guitar from the empty solid body it is now. I’m showing only recycled art at the Sierra Club, because what better place to promote recycling, right?

On Friday, I will be getting started on the mural project I’ve been writing about for the last couple months. I have created the design and have approval to get started! I’m really excited about painting LARGE! 10 x 10 feet large! I plan on making a time lapse video of the whole process so stay tuned. I may share bits and pieces of it during the process.

Getting my groove back!

True Love acrylic on 12" vinyl

“True Love”, acrylic paint markers on 12″ vinyl record, SOLD!

It’s been months since I’ve spent any significant amount of time painting. I’ve been busy, with traveling, singing, getting my prints into galleries and life in general. This weekend the urge was so strong to paint, that I brought some supplies home with me and painted while we watched football all day and evening on Sunday. The photos I’m sharing today are the result. These are all acrylic paint markers on vinyl. They are all available for sale. Contact me directly if you are interested in purchasing one or more of them. Thank you so much for your continued support of my creative life!

Today I took several of my recycled record paintings on vinyl over to Bright Rain Gallery. Before I left the house I checked on titles and realized I didn’t have them here on my website, at all! I have now remedied that situation and you can find them HERE or in the above Portfolio tab, under “Recycled Vinyl”. I am working on getting them back into my Etsy shop too. I have been super duper busy with getting my artwork out into galleries! Received word on Monday that my prints have been accepted into yet another gallery, Fuller Lodge Art Center, in Los Alamos, New Mexico. Now that I’m done with the records for Bright Rain gallery, time to get moving on printing and packaging prints for the new gallery! πŸ™‚
