New Paintings for the Gallery

Next week our gallery, Local Colors of Utah is having a white show featuring art from all our artists.
I have created a couple of mixed media pieces. I collage paper onto canvas for a smoother surface and then paint on it using acrylic paint, pastels, watercolor pencils, colored pencils and watercolor crayon.
For the New Year I thought I would do a series of faces with positive thoughts and quotes on them. Though my paintings are not totally 'white', they have some off white in them. I just didn't feel like doing totally white paintings.

The first one I did is titled Peace Comes From Within, and is 10" x 8". The second one is titled "Life is About" and has the quote; Life isn't about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself. It's the same size as the first one.
Each face is a new original painting.

The opening for this show is Friday, January 18th, 6 to 9 PM at Local Colors of Utah, 1054 E. 2100 South, SLC, UT.

Back to my eday job

The past year and a half I have devoted my time to tending grandchildren and creating art for my gallery representation. I have spent years - since 2001 selling on ebay until, well, the last year and a half!

I am happily finding time to do art for ebay again, and since my original paintings are going to my brick and mortar places, I am using images from my paintings to collage into new works of mixed media art to sell on ebay. It is quite fun to create something totally new and original with some of my favorite pieces of art. 

Today I am featuring a collage that is currently on ebay titled "Moos and Sunflower". It is 8" x 10" on a canvas panel.
