New Paintings 2013...Phase 1...

Oil On Canvas -36x48
 Recently, my friend and designer extraordinaire, Brian Paquette, of Brian Paquette Interiors, asked if I would create work for an entire HOUSE that he was designing. He actually told me he was going to "design the spaces after he saw what I had created." I was flattered, to say the least...So far I have done around 7 new pieces for him, and am working on more for my new collection. Thank you to Brian, and to the people that have been oh so kind, and patient with me, after messaging me on one too many occasions with the question of when I will have more paintings for sale. Good news is I am on a role...
Oil On Canvas and Gold Leaf- 36x48

Encaustic,(beeswax)- 24x24

Encaustic, (beeswax) - 36x36

Also, the bad news is I am on a role...My house has laundry piled up EVERYWHERE, dishes in the sink, for dayyyys, and the occasional moment where the dog tears through the recycling bin, leaving chewed up paper messes all over the kitchen, and I actually walk in the room, sigh a big sigh, and LEAVE IT until "someone else" SEE'S IT, so that I can go back to work.... it is not pretty. When people come over I throw everything in a closet, or office, basically one of the many rooms that are piling up with junk, that I end up forgetting about, because I threw it in their when I was in a panic. This is why, I think, many artists avoid doing work, and also work well on deadlines, because when you are obsessive, like many artists are, there is no time for anything else. I can't multitask. It's all or nothing. When I am inspired, I don't have time for anything else. I don't like to even leave the perimeter of my workspace, I just want to WORK
And with that, I am off my friends. I am excited to show you more....
I hope you are all doing the best you can with whatever you are doing...XO

I'm loving the last two. If Brian decides not to use them (which I can't imagine), I'm interested! Really!

It's all GORGEOUS! I am going to rob the Sunset house blind for the "marbleized" encaustic. Genius, as always. And dirty clothes be damned -- you've got art to make!

Katie, Brian is using them for a show house, so they may still be available but not for a few months if you can wait! Thanks so much for your interest! And Leah, I LOVE you and your being ok with my never-ending laundry pile...XX
