(WIPs) Work in Progress

Porcelain Watercolor Palettes

Porcelain Watercolor Palettes

     A few posts ago, I blogged about the current palettes in my studio and how I love big mixing spaces. Well, today I stopped by a local art store (Davinci Artist Supply) and stumbled upon this giant beautiful porcelain palette that resembled the Tom Lynch Porcelain Palette without all the brush holders. I had extreme difficulty resisting the urge to just pull out my money and walk out the door with it given that porcelain palettes are usually $50+ for any size over 12"

Why do you paint/draw so many apples?

If you've seen my artwork then chances are - you've probably seen an apple or two..or three. I love painting apples! There's a very good reason for that too. Apples are my favorite type of fruit and they are (in my opinion) the most colorful type of fruit as well. They are also extremely easy to draw - it's a circle! However, there's also a sentimental value associated with apples for me.

Painting with Qor Watercolors

I recently posted about the Qor Watercolors samples compared to other brands like M. Graham paints or WInsor Newton but I ended up buying the Introductory 12 set to play with. I had a 40% off coupon for Blick and couldn't resist.

More Terrariums and a New WIP!

More Terrariums and a New WIP!

My second hobby is too messy...

I bought some plants about a week or so ago from JuciyKits.com to build a few more terrariums. They have a great selection and wonderful terrarium kits for anyone who doesn't want to drive around town picking up all the necessary supplies.

They also have great tutorials and tips on terrarium creation and care. Their 'Moonshine' series inspired me to make these cute little BlueMason Jar Terrariums!

Spring flowers & Inspiration

Spring flowers & Inspiration

Spring is finally here in NYC! Warm weather, flowers, sunshine all around...including allergies. Not so fun.

It's been awhile since my last post but I've finished my last piece and began working on a new flower painting (hopefully in time for Mother's day!)
