Adventures in Artistic Creativity

A little about my studio

Here is my studio. I have Twitter on the computer
while I paint.

Tonight I’ve been preparing more panels for painting. Now that they are drying, I thought I’d share with you, my little studio. It’s small, however it has a large window with plenty of natural light. As you can tell I love color. Every room in my house is filled with bold colors. I was worried the colored walls could effect the outcome of my paintings. Luckily, this hasn’t been the case. Working in my blue studio is very relaxing, I find myself getting lost in my work and time.
I enjoy keeping my computer close by with iTunes pumping out a wide range of Jazz. It’s not often I listen to Jazz but when I paint I completely lose myself in the rhythm of the music with the movement of the brush. It’s all very therapeutic.
Most of my work over the past 15 years has been with watercolor and some acrylic on canvas. I will continue to work in both mediums.

Here are a few panels ready for Gesso.

Over the next several weeks I plan to expand my experience and learning by painting on panels. 24 6X8 inch panels to be exact. I decided to cut and build the panels myself.  Once the panels are built, I paint several layers of Gesso on the panels then sand them smooth. So far I’ve enjoyed this process and as I continue through the experience, I feel the panels will reveal many more lessons.
I’ll post new paintings as I finish them so please stop by often.
