My Creative Process

In 7 weeks I am installing a collection of abstract paintings in a local shop. The owner has requested that the pieces be large. I've painted on a large scale before & enjoyed the process & final outcome. I think in the back of my mind I wonder if they don't sell where will I store them all? My studio space is in the basement of our home & not very big. This summer I have lots of painting to do to prepare the collection of work. Let's hope I can sneak in some me time while my daughters are out of school.

Last week, on the last day of school, I dropped off the girls & then headed to one of my favourite spots. The local skatepark always has tons of colour inspiration, & the graffiti changes up a lot. Those kids are busy with their spray cans! I snapped some photos & wanted to share a few that caught my eye.

 This reminds of a delicious beverage with slices of oranges & limes floating in it. A bit of summer mixed with amazing texture!

I started a new piece yesterday & it is currently on the easel in my dining area. I think it helps me visualize what direction I want to take when I see a painting over & over throughout the day. I'm so lucky that I can leave all of my supplies & paint sitting in our living area & my daughters know not to touch it. Can't wait to use up all of the blank canvases sitting in my studio.
