Working Small

Vera

1.75 x 2.75″

       If your computer screen is a similar size to mine ( not very large), then this image is almost true to size.  In the past I have enjoyed painting very large images.  Now, I am exploring tiny sized paintings.  This stems from an interest in creating art an “average” person could afford to buy.  My large paintings involve many materials and hours to create. Small paintings take me less time because there is less surface area to cover with detail.

 Of course people can always buy a print, however a print simply does not equal the feeling and energy of an original art work.  In my opinion art can completely change the feeling of a house or room.  Art can make a place feel special.

My little guy is such an adventurer!  Recently we hiked a snowy mountain and Joss growled in delight the whole way ( in between naps).  Lucky for me I did not have to carry him, because he now weighs 20lbs and that feels heavy when walking uphill on snow.

Life…

I just love making bike tube earrings.  The shapes are cut out with scissors and I use a leather hole punch for the polka dots.

Some are available at my ETSY store

Paint for Peaks Snowboard

Once again I have painted a snowboard for the Paint for Peaks Art Auction, which raises money for breast cancer awareness. The auction will take place this Saturday in the Taos Ski Valley.

This is my first real painting since having a baby.  The most difficult part was getting started because I had to change my way of working.  Once I began the painting flowed and I really enjoyed myself most of the time.  During the creation of each art work I experience ebbs and flows of effort and results.

I had the image  in my mind of what I wanted the board to look like.  It never turns out like I imagine, but I am pleased with the results. It has a calm, peaceful stillness which I experience while being in nature when it is snowing.

Unfortunately I am not a very good photographer.  The original work does not have any color in the ski except grey snowflakes.
