My series continues with the third painting now in-progress. It started as a sketch from my memory of using my mom’s art supplies to paint at our big table in the dining room.
Then I made several new sketches and came up with the final dimensions.
Here I’m adding in my Lupita character at the table and adding in color. These are all sketches I use as guides to then make the final painting.
About the series:
My new artwork series is a meditation on my childhood growing up off-the-grid in rural Iowa. My goal is to write a children’s book using this series of 20 paintings as the illustration for the book. Thank you to the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation – BeWildReWild – Community Artist Grant for your generous support of my project.
