New Work

I am super excited to tell you about a new body of work I have been doing! This is a little sneak peak - the in progress shot of a piece I am doing for a show in Portland.
I am using acrylic paints and the glorious Golden fabric painting medium, and then embroidering over the paintings. I think its such a great direction for me to go in. It takes the best of my resin/gouache/acrylic paintings, the subjects on my prints, and my love of embroidery all into account. I have 4 or 5 pieces underway right now, and I haven't been this excited about a piece of artwork in a long time.
I finished and framed this piece earlier this week (with the super awesome emergency help of my friend Kim!), and sent it away to Portland. This will be the first time I am showing one of these pieces, and I am very anxious to find out what people will think of them!
I can't wait to show ya'll (yep, all 2 of you that read this) the others I am working on!
Have a happy weekend! It is supposed to be 70 degrees here in Seattle, on the first day of March! Thats crazy!
