Nature is always the muse

A new series of paintings began happening a few weeks ago. It is titled "Naturae" which is Latin for nature. Of couse. Nature is always the muse. Every single piece of artwork I create is inspired by the natural world around me. 

I needed to create on a smaller scale for a while. I love creating big, but sometimes the size of larger works involves more time commitment than I can offer. I craved working on a scale that didn't require days or weeks to complete. A size which allowed me to start and finish in a day or two at most. Something I could work on after a long day at the J.O.B. These works are created on interior house paint sample swatches I had in my collection of interior design tools. No longer needed, I decided they would make the perfect canvas surface. Each measures approximately 11x14 and all works are mixed media to some degree. Acrylic paint, colored pencil, soft pastel, oil pastel, neocolor crayons, charcoal pencil, embroidery thread and paper collage. 

Please visit the shop to view the collection. The first 10 works are up with many more to follow in the coming weeks. Prints will be available of these paintings as well, sometime in the near future. 

Thank you for visiting here. Offering kind words and support of my creative life. 

Grateful every day. Live life wonderful.
