I hope everyone had an amazing holiday weekend - looking forward to the new year with commissions and hopefully new licensing deals. I'm not much of a blogger/poster but know I appreciate all the lovely comments. The internet can make for a small world and makes it much easier for this lady to reach out to an audience I'd never have the chance otherwise to share with. Below is a 4 set series of shells - I've never decorated with a nautical/beach theme, maybe if we lived on the water or had a cute little cottage I would. I wanted to paint something with more of a modern edge for those of us who aren't lucky to live so close to the beach - lots of texture, drips and splatters with plenty of color variation. I hope you enjoy - have a great long weekend ahead! Tara
I just completed this set of 4 animal paintings - safari animal with a Havana feel was the request. I hope you like it.
I can't believe how long it has been since I posted some new work -
This is one of two for a commission piece - I love how it turned out. If you have any ideas or suggestions let me know, I read all of your comments :)
Have a great week - Tara
A new season and new beginnings I am super excited about, details to come - in the meanwhile, I wasn't blessed with a green thumb but lucky for me succulents really don't require one. Many of you know, I often paint what I'd love to decorate with or try to incorporate something a bit quirky into my paintings - plants are not uncommon (and seem to be everywhere!) but how you present them is. From the container or vessel, to the way you display them, such as vertical on a wall, in an unusual container, or hanging upside down from the ceiling (which is my favorite at the moment). So try it, hang a couple from the corner ceiling (give your walls a break!) and pair with a chair and cute side table - you just might have created the most sought after spot in the house. Have a great weekend! Tara
Long and lean - like me, haha, ok maybe not, I love changing things up a bit with canvas sizes. It's a bit of a challenge painting a long, vertical piece. This painting measures 18x36 and is already on the wall in one of my girl's bedroom, with unpainted edges - always in a hurry. This was painted for the Art Licensing Show website which I am a member of. The text is in Photoshop and isn't on the actual painting. It started out like the majority of my pieces, no plan just lots of mark making and fun with the process and sort of evolved from there. Have a great week. Tara
New wall art I just finished - this piece is 16x20 but I can size down, thanks for all the web orders! Have a great week. Tara
Hello ~ I've been busy cranking out some new collections lately. With summer right around the corner I thought I'd go with the season. I usually start with painting a new wall art piece, since that is my first painting go-to, then I build a collection around it - this is for the Art Licensing Show at the end of February. Thanks for looking, have a great weekend! T
