7 styles of—


I’ve taken a break from the “Curvy” series and started a new series focused on shoes.

More specifically, stilettos.

The series will be called “7 styles of  ————–”

Why the blank? Well that’s because I’m not telling just yet.

I want to see what you, the viewer might think it is.

What comes to mind when you think of high heel shoes?

The series will consist of 7 watercolor and ink paintings each 9″x12″ with a stiletto as the subject.

Here is #1.RED

And as per the norm, I was too impatient to wait for the ink to dry.

Let me know your thoughts.

Cheers,

Amanda


Just a peek


I’m working on a whole stack of things at the moment: (still)

bookmarks

cards

watercolor series

abstract painting

etc

etc

My hope is that I’ll be able to post some more bookmarks later today 🙂

They’re quite colorful.

In the meantime, I’ve been trying to work out how to frame the “Life Simplified” series and ran into some floating frames I had kicking around.

So what do you think?

I think the floating frame works nice but it could work just as well with a few mats around it too.

Anyway, I hope to post more work later today!

Happened, Going to Happen, Happening


Lots seems to be happening around here even though I sometimes fail to realize it.

Here’s a look at what’s happened, going to happen and happening.

Happened-My art showcase at Edmonton Jam Space finished Oct 4th so I picked up my paintings from Jonny on the weekend. Things have picked up for him too so he hasn’t had a chance to set up the next artist for display. Those walls are going to look some bare. He offered to have me back sometime so I may set something up for the future. I did however leave him with a “Commission Flier” to stick up in case anyone wants their old guitar made over into art.

Going to HappenNov 15th, 2008: Shop in the Fort Trade show (I’ve already mentioned this one)

*New*-I have a gallery showing booked at the Dow Centennial Center’s Gallery for the whole month of February 2010. Sure it’s a ways off but hey it gives me LOTS of time to create new pieces and have old ones framed. Either way exciting.

Happening-I currently have 2 abstract paintings, 2 new watercolor series, commissions, and some abstract recycled jewelry on the go. Fun Stuff:

One of the abstract paintings you’ve already had a glimpse at and the other one I’m keeping until it’s finished.

I will give you a peek at one of the new watercolor series I’m working on.

It’s a three piece series titled: “Three Fold Prayer” and will be done in the same style as all my other watercolor pieces such as “Life Simplified”.

Here are the outline drawings and I’ll be adding the watercolor today with the hopes of starting the text on at least one of the pieces. Each piece is 9” x 12” on 195gms weight cotton acid free watercolor paper.

Back to work.

Cheers,

A
