Easel Sale and Spanish Class

I'm trying to clear up my studio and get ready for the Fall, while saving up for a Sienna All-in-one easel to take out and do some landscape paintings. The painting on this post is on sale for $29 plus $4 shipping/handling within the continental US and $10 everywhere else. Half off shipping with more than one painting are ordered and shipped together. Please, e-mail me if you are interested, with the description of the painting and your mailing address.

Still Life with White Hydrangea in Pewter Bowl,  Oil on 5"x6" Linen Panel
SOLD
I wanted to share what I've been painting this past week. The students come back to school this Thursday and I am ALMOST ready. I teach 5th-6th Grade Spanish. I take any opportunity I can to infuse art into my class.
The painting of the little girl in the yellow is a copy I did of one of Gustavo Montoya's lithographs. The red painting with the hummingbirds is inspired by Mola textiles and the the blue one with the wings is a nicho/retable for Frida Kahlo.





The frame painted on the wall is to showcase student artwork, and along with the frogs I painted to go with a Success class I teach to the 5th graders.

Roses, Chickens, and Bees

My heart is filled with all your inspirational words. Thank you for the happy e-mails, the wonderful advice and sharing of resources, and your kindness and support all around.

I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art.

About three weeks (most of it during Spring break and then a couple of weekends following), half of a pinkie nail, and five hundred dollars later, my coop was finished and the chickens seemed to have made th…

Labor of Love

First, I must say that everything I paint is because I absolutely love. I don't like to paint things that I don't find to be attractive to me for one reason or another. Sometimes it's sentimental reasons and other times it's as simple as beautiful colors or the texture. Either way, it's something that I want to capture and stare at for long periods of time. I want to study it and how it affects the environment around it, as in the case of Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase does. In that respect, I feel ALL my paintings are a labor of love. 
More often than not, I have to create a painting, wipe it all down, and start all over again if something is just not working. Some never get completed and I just end up painting something totally different on that panel. Then there are some, that I just have to paint, no matter how much trouble they are giving and how long it takes them to be completed. This is the case for this set of paintings. I've painted and  wiped away eve…
