Painting in progress, Artsy Quote, and Tshirts

oil painting on canvas work in progress

It’s been another one of those busy months. Enjoying summer and the outdoors as much as possible while also getting my work done. Unfortunately, the blog posts have been one of the casualties of summer!

Time to get back on track! The air is getting cooler, we’ve been getting LOTS of rain this summer! Living in the desert, that doesn’t always happen. In fact, we’ve been in a drought for about a decade. This year, the mountains, where we hike, have been open most of the summer. Except for the week surrounding the 4th of July, of course! Needless to say, we have spent a lot of mornings this month hiking!

A couple of weeks ago, I finally got back into my painting studio. I have a gallery show coming up in December, so I’ve also been busy getting work ready for that. The painting above is the current work in progress, still has a ways to go before it’s done.

My band, Sunlight, has also been busy lately! After taking July off, we have 4 shows in August, with two coming up this weekend in Colorado. We play on Friday night at Mean Jean’s coffee house in Lake City, CO and Saturday night at The Swing Station in Laporte, CO. One of the things we accomplished this month was getting silk screens made for our Sunlight T-shirts. Tomorrow we will spend the afternoon printing them. I will let you all know as soon as they are available! 🙂

Last but not least, it’s been a while since I’ve posted an Artsy Quote, so here you go!

Gaining Momentum

I have been so busy since my last post! Since then, I have been accepted and dropped off paintings for another show at yet another gallery! The same day that I dropped my art off at that gallery, I visited another gallery in another town and have been asked to submit to them as well. I guess you could say life has been good lately! 🙂 I have spent a bit more time in my studio recently, now that I have to get busy painting! I finally got the studio completely set up, with art on the walls and everything! I don’t have any new work to share just yet, though I have completed a couple of record paintings. I want to wait for now and reveal them all at once. Until then, I will share photos of my completed studio and some of the progress photos of pieces I’m currently working on.

Just of few of the projects I’m currently working on, just getting started.

Vinyl paintings in progress

Vinyl record paintings in progress, thanks to Ken at the Fuller Lodge Art Gallery in Los Alamos, NM, I’m trying out painting with paint markers. They work GREAT!

coloring tshirt

My first coloring tshirt! This is one I colored in to be used as an example on the website where they are being sold.

I’m really excited to announce that my coloring book designs are now available on t shirts! Using fabric paint or markers they can be colored in to make your own design! Endless possibilities! There are 4 different designs available and they are only $20! Check out this LINK to see them for yourselves. 🙂

The opening for the show I most recently got into is this coming Saturday in Madrid, NM at Metallo Gallery. It’s a miniature show and 3 of my “All About Love” paintings were accepted. The opening is from 4-8pm on May 4th. If you are in the area, hope you can make it! 🙂
