Best Friends

Best Friends
Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas
12" x 12" x 1.5"

Been working on this piece for a while now actually, it only took me so long because I kept doing other smaller projects at the same time. lol  I seem to get bored very easily if I work on the same piece for too long so I have to work on many different things all at the same time in order to keep my sanity!

This painting is the first completed one of the collection that I am working on for a Gallery Exhibition in April titled Darling Divine ~ Art of the Avant Garde.  I am collaborating with 2 other fabulous female artists for this exhibition and we will also be sharing profits with the Cancer Society.  With April being Cancer Awareness month it all worked out perfectly!  I will share all of the paintings for this as I complete them here on the blog.

In the meantime this piece along with others are available as a fine art reproduction on Fine Art America and you can check them out here cute paintings!

Dreams of Being A Rock Star

Well, I guess we could call it preparation for February's Challenge, either way I have really been enjoying the art work that I have been working on lately!  I just finished and photographed the second mixed media painting that I've completed in the last 2 weeks and realized I haven't bothered to even share the first one on here yet.  

The first one that I did last week is titled Dreamer

and the second one that I just finished today is called Rock Star

I am also working on an acrylic on canvas painting of a cute big eyed girl with pink hair, which is just about finished as well.  I am hoping to get it done before February so that I have a clean slate to work with so I will be back to post it before the weekends over!  promise!

29 Faces in February

I am going to be participating in an Art Challenge for the month of February called 29 Faces.  It looks like it is going to be a lot of fun and any artist is invited to participate along with us. Basically since February has 29 days this year we will do a  portrait a day for the entire month and blog about each one, that is the challenge!  The portraits can be any size and any medium. If this sounds like something you might be interested in then go on over to Ayalas Blog to grab her button for this challenge, get the official details from her and link up your blog.
