Rainbow Fiddle!

I recently painted a 1913 fiddle for an upcoming online auction and exhibit at the Sweet on Fiddlin’ show at the Ironwood Stage and Grill. It’s a great change of pace from flat canvas!

Sanding away the shiny, perfect surface of the fiddle.. yikes!

The trees never ask for attention.

If you read yesterday’s post, then you know there were lots of tears, and lots of feeling. After writing that post, I painted this painting, also with many tears.

Art Battle!

I had a blast at art battle last night, at HiFi Club in Calgary. It was as much fun as the last few times I tried – great music, lots of people, super-intense energy! I will definitely do this again! One day I want to compete in the national competition! :)

Round One… I won!

Studio Tuesday :: 20-Minute Paintings

"I Love It", 16" x 20" SOLD

“I Love It”, 16″ x 20″ SOLD

It’s Art Battle training time again! Art Battle is a friendly competition for artists: we are given the paint, the canvas, and 20 minutes to create what we want/can. The audience votes for their favourite paintings, and the top 4 finalists compete in the last round. This year, I have my eye on the nationals!

Both of the paintings here were created in 20-minutes. Working this quickly allows me to let go of any critical voices, because they just don’t have a chance to take hold – my hands are moving too quickly! It’s like a really fast dance, with paint.

Art Battle is this Thursday at HiFi. For more information on Art Battle, and to purchase tickets, click here.
