The Yoga Series Continues...

I have been motivated and productive lately, making yet more progress on my yoga series and then some :) I have completed two more yoga poses and started working on some new content on a new surface last night.  I have a little more work to do on the beach scene which is on Pastelmat.  This was a fun toothy surface to work on.  Luckily, completely the yoga backgrounds on my other paintings prepared me for bulking on enough pastel to be able to blend on this surface.  Here is the beach painting:
My most recent yoga painting "Fierce" is featured below.  Entitled "Fierce" because of the warrior pose she is in, I wanted her to pop and appear to take charge of the page while also complimenting her surroundings.  I loved the pop of orange/red encircling her while the background is meant to capture the colors of the beach, sand, and surf.  Any comments appreciated!

The third yoga painting in my series, isn't the best picture.  I took it with my camera and will change it as soon as I get some natural light for a photo :)  This is "Rooted" and attributes her balance and harmony as she is in tree pose.  I incorporated very earthy colors to simulate her sturdiness as a tree would be.  Enjoy!

The bottom two paintings are on 9x12 Colourfix paper while the top beach scene as I said is pastelmat. All are created with NuPastels.  Have a great day.

Featured in an Art Blog!

An exciting new adventure for me has recently occurred and I am so pleased to let everyone know that I was featured in an art blog today! A young woman who features new artists every Monday has interviewed me and posted that as well as pictures of my art, and links to my shop and blog.  You never know who you're going to meet or how networking will turn out in the end.  It didn't cross my mind that I would meet someone who would feature me as an artist on her blog on Etsy!  Please check out her blog and check back for new artist interviews! Just click here!

I am also happy that I got more prints of my art and posted some new pictures of them on my Etsy Shop.  The pictures aren't as zoomed in as the others so that you can get a better idea of what the prints look like.  I am working on getting  an 8.5x11 frame to post a picture of them framed as well. :)
