In talking recently with a friend we mentioned how many artists there are in Birmingham that we don’t know. At that point I set out to find new artists in our area. Through the beauty of the hashtag I searched & found #birminghamart….lots of it! I really never jumped on board w/ the whole hashtag thing & realized how important it is in connecting people. I found the 30x30x30 project on Instagram through searching Birmingham art. I contacted them & asked if I could be a part of their show/ mission. They graciously said “yes!” & so the process began. They provided me with 30 wood panels to create whatever I wanted. It was very freeing to have the material, size & quantity already decided for me…all I had to do was paint! The purpose of the 30x30x30 project was exactly what I was looking for…a way to connect with new people, get out of my comfort zone a bit & raise scholarship money for a Woodlawn High School senior pursuing a degree in a creative field. The show will be Nov 7 & 8 at 2threefive Motion Picture Studio in Woodlawn. Below is a picture of my first layer of paint & the next is the finished product.
Hi Friends! Minted & Domino Magazine partnered for an art design challenge. You can click on the images below to see my entries. I entered four paintings into the contest & you can VOTE for any or all of my paintings & I would be so grateful!! Please share with your art loving friends as well! The winners will be featured on both sites (which would be AMAZING!). Thanks for supporting me!
I am having fun exploring new colors, sizes & mediums this summer. The colors outside are really inspiring my color palette- I can’t help but use all the beautiful colors I see! I am also preparing for a new show in Atlanta in August, Piedmont Park Art Festival.
Here are a few pictures of what has kept me busy this fall.
This is a commission series for a customer in my hometown, Meridian, Mississippi. She wanted a series of 3 or 4 paintings to go above her bed. I painted several sets for her to choose from (they are laying on her duvet).
This series was an interior designer job. I did a series with this color palette this past summer…their client liked that series so I painted a similar set for them.
This is another interior design job. The colors are a citron greenish gold, suede, champagne taupe & I added some metallic pearl. The fabrics for this job are gorgeous. I hope to see the room when it’s complete.
