So during the Paintapalooza from the weekend before last, I created 2 new collections for my coffee and hearts series.
While working with an agent, I’ve learned that collections are a group of 2 or 4 pieces that are very similar in theme and style yet differ slightly. So in trying my hand at this understanding I created the following 4 coffee pieces:
I’ll still probably add paint to the coffee cups, but wanted to make sure I had the “collections” piece right! I think these will make a fun note card set and will be adding these to my shop (but each will also be available for prints/magnets/journals, etc.)
I was also encouraged to try some new fonts/techniques, so I created this fun coffee piece (the complimentary piece is partially done, so I’ll share it later).
This is not me at the coffee shop, but I’ve been behind plenty of people who order like this. Eh, to each their own I guess!
Here is my attempt at a heart collection:
Tomorrow I’ll show you some attempts at a new style of girl (don’t worry, not replacing my current style of girl, just may be utilized as another line for a more youthful/younger audience).
And perhaps I’ll show you my sketchbook; it’s been getting quite a bit of use! Signing up with an agent and being labeled a professional artist (even calling myself an artist took a long, long time) has really inspired me and I’m just going to town sketching out ideas. I even purchased over 200 canvases, that’s how much I plan on creating in the next couple of months.
We’re working out a lot of details right now, but once we get some of these things worked out, then I’ll be on an all-time painting spree and will probably have dozens of new pieces to share weekly, so stay tuned!
Thanks for taking a peek at what I’m up to!
