Every now and then an artist makes a boo boo! I forgot to fill in the white handle of my coffee cup! Before bed on occasion I like to sneak in a quick sketch! This was an image I took of myself when I realized I was all out of coffee! Has anyone else worked so intensely they reached for there coffee to realized they were sipping air?
As children, we all have images that resonate with memories of our youth. These images make us reminisce about simpler times and remember lost loved ones that have passed. I will forever think of my grandmothers when I see landscape paintings with bluegrass or a dusty sunrise that overlooks trees.
This week I began working on a portrait of my mother I always admired as a child. I'll always remember admiring old photos of my family members in my fathers' mother's scrapbooks. Everyone was glamorous and retro in the images of them in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. This image was a picture of my mother before she had children and before she married my dad. She might have been engaged to him at the time but she diffidently wasn't married to him yet. I love this image because this was a side of my mother I didn't know. Not knowing her as someone other than my mom created an allure of how she was then.
Two new commissions completed with custom frames! My clients wanted two images of children on the beach representing her kids. Email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with your Portrait, still life, or eclectic composition request! Each commission price will be tailors to each individual project and its complexities.
Happy Monday everyone!
Hopefully, you had a fun and safe Fourth of July weekend. On the fourth, I decided to hunt for the home that inspired my artwork Tuscany in Houston. Now and then I find inspiration even when I’m not looking for it. While I was driving to an art event I got stopped at a red light. While I sat at this light I turned to my left and noticed the most beautiful home through my window. This beautiful southern home looked as if it didn’t belong in Houston, but rather in Tuscany. Viewing this home provided a momentary escape to a place I have never been. This Fourth I wanted to revisit not only this home but the feelings I felt when I saw it. Although the Tuscan home looked the same the botanicals were different having no florals insight.
