New Painting

Posted in Art Work

Some shameless self promotion today : )  I posted a new 11 x 14 inch painting yesterday.  I used some reference photos of daisies taken back in July.

Daisies by SibStudio

I was cutting back the very last of the daisies a few weeks ago and thought i'd like to capture them in all their summer glory.

I decided on painting a faux denim background to bring a nice country summery feel to the painting.  I got so involved in painting the denim look that I forgot to take a few photos.  I started with a light blue background and then dragged a loose mixture of navy blue across the canvas.  I ended up with a bit of a plaid look which I liked. After it dried, I lightly sanded the whole surface with sandpaper to give it a distressed look.  I painted a spray of daisies and a bit of vines to finish the look.  Here it is:

Local News

For those who are local – I have new minis at the CCAA  Exton Mall Gallery.  I stopped in this morning and there is some wonderful art there! Beautiful watercolors,  pastels, acrylic, oils,  photography, and new pottery on displays.  They have a new jewelry artist whose work with stone and gems is just gorgeous.  It's definitely worth a trip to check out what is there.

Blueberries

Blueberries

Early July brings freshly picked blueberries around here. Whether they are the tiny  Maine blueberries, the giant sized Jersey berries, or the freshly picked local berries, they are all delicious and taste like summer.  If you have an artist in the family, you can count on finding them with their camera photographing the berries before anyone gets a chance to eat them.

Blueberries

I enjoy painting fruits and vegetables, and blueberries are one of my favorites. I love their color – blue – purple, sometimes a blush of pink or green.  My favorite is their star-like ends.

You will often find a painting of blueberries in my work.

This matted painting on watercolor paper can be found in my Etsy shop.

New Mini Paintings

I have two new mini paintings finished this week.  Both are on 3" x 3" square miniature canvases. I think the square shape highlights the flowers nicely.  Both can be found in my Etsy shop.  Enjoy the weekend!
