Update on Art Studio Remodel

sweeping walls of art studio

We’re back in Sedro Woolley and Greg and I have been working on my art studio remodel. I’m excited to say it’s almost done.

I loved my old studio and this one is similar and about the same size. Both are sheds turned into an art studio.

More Work to Do

We still need to paint the outside of it and put some molding around the floor but then I can start moving stuff in!

I can’t wait to start decorating it!

The photos below don’t show the laminate floor we put in but it came out really nice. I’m very pleased with the whole thing!

Working on the Studio

Here are some photos of Greg and I working.

New Colorful Whimsical Acrylic Paintings

Whale, Raven, Sugar Skull Paintings

I’m in Mexico.

I can see I’m being affected by it’s beauty, color and magic.

I’ve always loved the sugar skulls in Mexico. I’ve done one other one a few years ago which you can purchase as a print. I felt the calling to create another.

I’m fascinated by the raven and I’ve made quite a few paintings with him in it. This time I’ve added him to a painting with a dream catcher.

A good explanation of the dream catcher can be found at http://legomenon.com. They say, “The shape of the dreamcatcher is a circle because it represents the circle of life and how forces like the sun and moon travel each day and night across the sky. The dream catcher web catches the bad dreams during the night and dispose of them when the day comes.” I like that.

I own a dream catcher that I have in my home in Washington. It has beautiful feathers hanging from it and is made from twigs and leather string.

In Todos Santos, we can see the whales spouting and jumping out in the ocean. I love watching for them. Greg said one time he heard the whales singing when he was swimming at Las Palmas beach. That is cool!

Painting on a sunlit morning.

The forest shines beyond my window.

Soaking up the light through the window, paint is selected.

Cadmium yellow, Phalo blue, a vivid red, Mars black, white.

A clear mind. Tapping into intention.

I become a conduit of energy, conjuring images, my brush moves across the canvas.

Pattern. Shapes. Texture. String dabbled in paint.

Pattern scraped and printed, brushed and stamped.

More color here…

more color there.

The art is magic.

Harnessing the sacred moment of creativity, the enchanted feeling of pure joy, the painting is unleashed with vivid color and a heartbeat of wonder.

Emotions released.

To heal, to learn, living the bliss of the creative moment.

I am blessed.

Art embraced and welcomed with all my heart.

Grateful and honored to make art, to live the creative life.

To spread the joy of color and emotion, of images and pattern, of feeling and beams of light.
