It's been quite the busy week, time for some R&R. I just finished another class in my graduate program which always ends up being a big final push with late nights. I'm not good at relaxing and slowing down but it's definitely necessary to continue to move forward with my goals and projects. .

It's been a very long and very busy week! I Have made little to no progress on my painting.... school, work, consulting and teaching have been this week's priorities. .
But I did teach a new workshop @artistry_mn this week which is a win, and had a blast teaching this one too!!!! I have been planning a Career Planning course all spring and finally got to try it out last Wednesday. My only wish was that we had more time, two hours in a goal setting class flies by! .

The background stripes are painted in! Now working on the rest of the background of bullets and stars. I always keep some element in the background wood so I am going to paint the bullets and bullet shells, and keep the stars unpainted.

Happy Saturday! Spent this morning having art-chat and a delicious brunch with fellow artist @mackenzie.catton and then saw the new @springboardarts location with their open house. I am so excited to see Springboard move into this new space! Now spending my evening plunked in front of the TV watching @ghostadventures and painting. .

Hoping to finish this piece for the MN State Fair, but that exhibit may not want such a politically charged piece....but then again who knows, the acceptance for that show is always a surprise! And PS the 2018 State Fair Food Guide is published today!!!! What are you excited to try?

You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have. -Maya Angelou. .
I totally agree, being in the creative flow leads to more art making. I've been on a roll lately and it's been hard to peel away from painting to get other tasks done....writing papers, emails, laundry. Making art is just so much fun.

Filling in some last few details with the blue background, then moving on to the cream colored stripes. .
Gotta make a run to the art store today too before I work on the next part, but it's a gloomy rainy day here in MN so a perfect day to paint (and procrastinate grad school homework).

I had run to the studio after work yesterday to bring Pinnochio-Trump home and glad I did....seems like every major road to the studio is shut down today. Painting from home this weekend.

I'm always very deliberate of placing details in my work, that's usually why it takes me longer to plan out the painting then it does to paint. That tactic is helpful when I do a 3D resin layered piece.
.
By the time I get my acrylics out I know what I am making due to so much planning. I also tend to see the entire finished piece before it's done, that's how I know I am on the right track.

Got really far on my new painting last night. Although the detailed backgrounds I create seem like they take a long time, they go pretty quick. .
I also love to put on docu-series on and blow through a ton of episodes and crank out parts of a painting. Just started watching Staircase last night....any other recommendations? What are you loving on Netflix?

Got really far this evening on this new work...really excited about the background. Thought I was going with a dark blue but went for more of a slate for the background. The art always decides the color, not me!
.
My mentor told me in fall of 2012 that she could see me making political art. I couldn't see my work taking that route, but today I do! Mentors are such insightful creative guides who sometime see where you are heading even if you don't know.

Just uploaded my two big bodies of work on my story highlights. .
.
Beauties Behaving Badly is a 12 painting series that uses fairytale female characters to flip their stories around. The Little Mermaid for example is about the BP oil spill and the environment impact such a soil has on our environment.
.
My Seven Sins series of 7 three dimensional paintings that use the stories and behaviors that common cultural figures and storybook characters have and pairs them with one of the seven sins. The Queen of Hearts, from Alice in Wonderland is paired with wrath. The 3D look comes from layering the painting and resin in a very detailed matter. The painting is planned out like a 3D paint by number and is built up layer by layer.

Usually my color palette is pretty bright, but for this piece I think I am going to choose a bolder and darker color palette. Sticking with a red, white and blue theme since this painting has a political theme but with a primary childish fairytale color palette too.
