Tiny Little Birds on Wires.

"Don't Get Your Wires Crossed"  
8x24 acrylic on canvas
available here at Art Interiors

I will never get tired of painting these little birds on wires. There is just something so soothing to me about the image. I've been told by so many that it conjures up memories of summer, carefree childhoods and warm breezy days.

It's fun to paint them in different formats. I've done them as single squares, and in multiple views both horizontally and vertically. This particular version is available for purchase here at Art Interiors.

A Little Studio Update.

The Gathering  36x48  acrylic on canvas

Finished 'The Gathering' yesterday. The newest painting in the pigeon series. It's off to XC Art Restoration along with 4 others this weekend.

I've started using 'gallery wrap canvas' for my urban landscapes. The wide sides (1.25" or approx 4cms) take me a lot longer to paint and finish. 

I have 18 large canvases in different stages of completeness on the go at the moment. I'm aiming to get 12 of them completed and off to 2 separate galleries by the end of the month. Really enjoying the long work days.

This (hopefully brief) spell of cooler, cloudy weather is helping me stay focused on painting and all things that need to be done in the studio. While anticipating an up coming beach day.

Hotel Costes is my music of choice while I paint right now.

Serendipity - Following an interior designer on Instagram because you like her style and then getting a comment from her on one of your photos saying she just used your work in a project she's working on.

Exciting Times.

Urban Center  36x48  acrylic on canvas
available at Canvas Gallery

This painting 'Urban Center' is getting around and for that I'm thankful. I think it's one of my favorite urban landscapes that I've painted so far. Yes, artists do have favorite's. At least I do. It's been on HGTV's Income Property. In case you missed that post, you can read it here, and see it here.

Not too long ago it was rented once again and I was told that it was for the Bravo show Suits I'll definitely have to start watching now so I can spot my painting. How exciting!!! I wonder where it will be hanging. In someone's office? One of the character's trendy condos? If you watch the show and happen to catch a glimpse, please email me and let me know :-)

Thanks to Canvas Gallery for including me in their fabulous roster of artists and for getting my work out there. Urban Center is available for purchase at Canvas Gallery.
