2014 Mojo

Hello! Is anybody out there?

I've sadly neglected my blog in such a major way that it has been almost a full YEAR since I've posted! Time to get my bloggin' boots on and just dive right back in.

After a rough, seemingly endless Winter in New England, Spring has actually made an appearance just recently and I've been able to get back into my backyard studio. That means painting season is officially back on for me and I couldn't be happier about it!

Here is my first painting of 2014.

 Radiance - Acrylic on 22" x 28" canvas, 2014

Also available as a print in multiple sizes:

Week In Review 4/29-5/3

This was probably my most productive week ever!  Thanks to nearly perfect weather all week, I was able to really dedicate myself to painting every day.

Monday I completed this painting...

This was a fun piece that incorporated wet/drip techniques, sgraffitto, and palette knife painting.  

On Wednesday I completed this painting...

And today (Friday) I worked on a larger canvas that is still a work in progress.  I like the movement and larger, gestural swatches of color.  I still want to keep working on this one, but hopefully I won't overwork it and lose some of that initial energy. Working on this piece makes me realize how much I want to work exclusively on larger scale canvases right now.

I'll be spending the weekend with my family so everything has been put on pause until Monday.  I hope you enjoy your weekend and Happy Spring!
