Examples of my craze for what i like to call “Painting with Paper”Limiting materials to just glue, paper and sharpie can create a whole lot of colorful paper explosioncrazy 🙂

Happy day! I have just added “Pink Zebra’s” to my amopainting online store. A client is interested in purchasing the original from the MGH exhibit and wanted to review print options. So happy i could easily add “Pink Zebra’s” to my store so that she can see what the painting looks like on a stretched canvas, I added a few more items because i think they look fun (especially the pillow)

focus on figures NRASo glad to be included in this exhibit juried by Johanna Harmon! Reception opening on April 24th @North river arts society.

My painting in the show is titled  “These are NOT yellow…”

'These-are-NOT-yellow-pants'

I have been challenged by my paint group to paint only “Long haired”dogs! I find it harder to paint dogs with long hair vs short hair. I think it is because with a short haired dog it is easier for me to see the dog’s form and gesture and easier to transfer that form onto canvas. I believe i am on my way to loose my fear of the “Long Hair”

A fun exercise is to  make two fast paintings of the same subject.My Clementine's #1

This painting is the smaller one and i made it first in black white and gray to get the values correct.

On the second larger painting i went straight for the color feeling confident about my value choices

The Illuminations show at MGH will be ending in May and i am happy to report that i have already reached my goal of eliciting “Smiles” I want to thank  all the infusion patients who have reached out to me with their support and kind comments and i want to wish them all continued good health 🙂mgh-show

I have added “Ready for take off” to my online store because it has sold and it seems to be the star of the show:)

“Ready for take off” is now available as a print, pillow, i-pad skins and phone case’s 🙂

Funny thing about painting for the love of painting (without pressure or dead line)

This is a canvas i had slated for a “Dog” portrait, but as the paint hit the canvas it became a giraffe painting?!

Sometimes as an artist you just go with the flow:)Giraffe at the window

So happy to receive a request to add “Take off” to my amopainting online store. The original is hanging at the illuminations show at MGH hospital, Boston, MA. The original is sold so i am now offering fun, laptop skins, pillows, prints etc.. of the same painting “Ready for Take Off”. ready-for-takeoff http://nuvango.com/amopainting/ready-for-take-off

Sometimes it can be really fun to play with color, even after a painting is finished. I painted Ester in 2013 in pastel pinks.  I was recently playing around with images for my yearly calendar, and  I had a lot of fun manipulating the colors in photo shop (see below)

I still like the original best, but this was a fun activity in color.
