art prints now available
Excitement. That's the best word for me to start this post. It's almost surreal. I've always wanted to share my art but honestly have never made the time to do just that. So, here goes.
The first prints I'm producing are from the painting below. This piece started by simply sharing with my daughters the different perceptions of art and various art eras. I was discussing impressionism and expressionism. You know, the masters from this era like Van Gogh, Degas, Cassatt, Monet and the list goes on. I wanted my girls to see the brushstrokes and the various colors that could be used for a very familiar animal on our farm, a cow. Ensuring them that art doesn't always have to be realistic. Meaning it doesn't have to look exactly like the real animal. Blues, reds, pinks and blues could be used.
The medium I chose was acrylics on canvas. It's a very easy medium to use compared to oils, watercolors, pastels and etc. I work in all those mediums and more but for this purpose I chose acrylics. The result is below. Grab your print now! Enjoy!
I'm sorry it has taken me this long to update the blog. I've been working on getting my studio up and going. It's A LOT of work and I'm nowhere near being finished. Well, at least for guests. I've been able to work in the studio myself. It's nice having this art and design space (thank you hubby)!
With that being said, I hope to open the studio up this Fall for a few art classes. Please continue checking back.
I will be posting items in the Merch section of my site very soon. Be on the lookout for art prints and freebies.
In the meantime, please enjoy this great article 20 Reasons for Open Ended Art by Prekinders.com. I hope you will allow children of all ages to be creative with materials on hand. Creativity is amazing.
Thanks for stopping by!
