Colorful Outdoor Art UV Protected - " Flowertime"


You may have done your summer plantings already, like I have. Here in Louisville, we've had a lot of rain, so my flowers have had to rally to produce some buds. The day lily plants and echinacea that come up every year are looking great. Bumble bees like them, too.

Lately, I have brought my palette out onto the screened-in porch to paint some outdoor art canvas pieces. The birds chirping and wind whistling through the trees -- being in the outdoors -- yet protected from the elements is the right atmosphere to create outdoor art.

My outdoor art is designed to be hung on a deck, brick wall or siding or anywhere you like. I hang mine on a fence. It is protected with a special artist quality sealant which holds up under rain and humidity.

Here is this year's quality pieces, each handmade and available for order. Or, if you have an idea, send me a note, and we can collaborate.

You complete me

Now, how cliche is that title. It's a common post on my web site to say, this or that project or artwork is "complete." Here it is! Look at it! Then, I say to myself really fast after that, "Now what?!?!!?"

It's sad in a way to complete a project, because that means, it's time to move on. Get another idea, go to the art store, look at some color palettes, go to a museum. GET SOME NEW IDEAS?!? New ideas, please come to me! SOS

New Mexico Horses. Here it is. Gladly, I'll say, thanks to my husband Brian who chose a plain wood frame which beautifully compliments the painting. The frame came with glass, too. The colors of purples and plums serve as a second interior frame of the artwork. Look for New Mexico Horses in previous blog posts!

PS. It is really difficult to photograph a framed painting under glass.

That will come. In the meantime, I have a canvas, I'm throwing some paint on. I bought a huge heavy roll of medium weight paper (to sketch full life sizes on?) and I'll move things around the studio (not very exciting -- but it helps if one is blocked.)
