Hello 2017 let’s get caught up


As I said last time I posted,  I’ve been working away on a bunch of mixed media pieces some 3D and some more collage based and wanted to share with you how these have been progressing.

For the 3D pieces I’ve really been enjoying incorporating beads and rhinestones into the pieces to add more interest and reflective qualities. I’m working on a series in this style for an exhibit in June at City Hall. I can’t wait to see them all displayed together.

And here are a couple of the collage based mixed media pieces that I’ve completed. 

As you can see I haven’t given up my love of color in these new styles.

Hope you enjoy these completed and in progress pieces. I’ll be offering classes in both these style in March if anyone is in the Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta area and interested. 

Cheers for now,

Amanda 

Medium Madness


Hey look at that it hasn’t been months between posts…yet ๐Ÿ˜‰

I spent the evening last night painting and playing in the studio with a bunch of new goodies.
I recently went on a mini medium shopping spree to stock up the studio on some awesome Golden & Liquitex paints and mediums; partly for the Art classes I’m teaching and partly because it gave me a reason to bring in some super high quality goodies.

I picked up more Golden Brand Fluid and High Flow paints which I have enjoyed working with in the last year. I also grabbed some acrylic medium staples like crackle paste, fiber paste, glass beads, a variety of gels and TONS more.

Here are a few pieces I’m currently working on and some in progress shots

Well back to it, if you’d like to know some of the mediums used, feel free to comment.
Cheers,
Amanda

Be Still-12″x24″


Last night the creative muse was out in full force resulting in a very productive evening. I painted a few octopus pendants, made a lovely green jasper bracelet and painted a new piece.

Lots of things have been known to spark my inspiration as it goes for most artists, but for this piece I was thinking of the ocean, missing the Atlantic, I had just finished “Washed Away”   and had just sold “Industrial Wash” over the weekend.

So I started this piece knowing that I wanted to use a blue brown palette with the sea in mind and went from there.

I’ve called it “Be Still” as it reminds me of the story in the Gospels of Jesus calming the storm at sea.

So here it is complete with painted textured sides. It is painted on a 12″ x 24″ gallery style canvas. I’ll be listing it soon for sale so if anyone is interested in giving it a home message me ๐Ÿ™‚

2015 City Hall Exhibit


Here are a few pictures from my March 2015 City Hall Exhibit in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta Canada.

Farmer’s Market


Contacted the Chamber of Commerce Friday and have made arrangements to have a table at the local Fort Saskatchewan’s Farmer’s Market for the month of August!

I will be showcasing and selling some of my smaller art pieces and prints as well as my jewelry.

Should be fun and I’m hoping for a good reception.

In the mean time I will be making and prepping a good supply of merchandise to have on hand.

Waiting for a few new supplies to come in and then we are good to go!

Some of the cool things I’ll be carrying (assuming I get them all done in time) will be painted wooden bracelets, plethora of earrings, pocket watch pendants, hand painted pendants, bookmarks, block prints, mini abstracts, watercolors and a chunk more stuff.

Plus every week there is a gift basket draw that I will be contributing discount vouchers to, to go towards a commission piece.

So it should be a good time.

You can come out buy some jewelry, art and fresh veggies ๐Ÿ™‚ how can you go wrong!

Cheers,

Amanda
