Another Beginning...PROCESS! and an opportunity!

As I like to do from time to time I want to show process.  This is to be a companion piece to my Acorn Trio from a few weeks ago. Another oak branch with acorns.  I found that I absolutely LOVED painting acorns. It is said that carrying an acorn prevents illness, increases immortality and preserves it!

I've increased the contrast in this photo so you can see the use of the oak leaf stamps that I made.  I like using these stamps in this piece as they will add a bit of depth when I paint the subject matter in oil.

My next step will be choosing and applying papers for added color and interest.  The challenge when I do this is to make sure my papers do not interfere with the subject, but add just a little excitement as a secondary focus.

My next piece will be another for that grandbaby that I already love like crazy!  A baby chimp.  All in all there will be 9 baby animal portraits.  I'm having a ball!...I think we also have a baby impala, cheetah, and even an ostrich in the mix!  YEA!

My involvement in the Artists of Colorado website which is associated with Contemporary Fine Art International is growing.  Not only do these sites increase exposure, they afford opportunities for advertising in magazines such as Southwest Art and American Art Collector at HUGE discounts...AND, with different levels you can come in at there will be offered workshops to improve your work.  How great is that!  I will be teaching workshops on subjects like "Improving your work through Value", "Drawing", Learning how to improve your work through composition...and more for AOC!...So, if anyone in Colorado is interested in learning more about these wonderful opportunities just leave a comment with your contact info or e-mail me at  ONWARDS AND UPWARDS!!

Je suis heureuse que mon atelier la "dollhouse" se trouve tout à côté d'un sublime chêne. Lorsque je peins il est fréquent d'entendre les petits écureuils. Ils sautent de branche en branche et aussi sur le toit de l'atelier et ils font également tomber les glands... c'est une véritable symphonie ! Un véritable bonheur...
Je trouve adorable cette dernière création et il est toujours intéressant de pouvoir visualiser votre processus.
Un gros bisou à vous ma chère.
