Pear Tree Sketch – 2 of 20 Wild Plums Art Series

When I was a child, we lived on this beautiful hill in rural Iowa. There were two gorgeous pear trees next to the garden overlooking the countryside beyond.

Mom put up a hammock from Mexico. My brothers and I would play and read and take naps out there under the twin pear trees. Our dogs and cats would join us.

Here are a few pictures and a (new!) video of my “Pear Tree” painting still in progress.

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.

New Painting – Lupita and Her Captain 2.0

My newest painting is modeled after a photograph of me holding my son, Charlie. These are a few of the steps I went through to create the painting. I used an Apple Pencil and the software called Procreate. It’s very calming and relaxing for me to paint this way. I love playing with color and texture, with the different layers upon layers.

Blessings,

The paintings express my love of the Christmas season and my admiration for my namesake, the Patron Saint of Mexico, Our Lady of Guadalupe.

I loved experimenting with different patterns and colors, while maintaining the same form throughout the series. All four sisters look completely different, yet definitely belong together.

These four new paintings, along with my Guadalupe King & Queen paintings, are all on display together at the MSAA Gallery for the holiday season. A wonderful time to stop by is during the beautiful candlelight shopping event on the Marietta Square every Friday night until Christmas.

I’m also offering these designs as custom paintings. If you order a custom painting, you have the option to choose custom colors for hair color, eye color, and skin tone for any of the designs…as well as if you’d like her eyes open or closed. I’m having an Early Bird Sale in my online shop right now that includes 10% off all custom paintings until December 1st.

Sending wishes for a beautiful week ahead,

Turkish Art Pendants – Friends & Family First Pick by Thursday

The View from my Art Desk – Turkish Art Pendants – Friends & Family First Pick – Reserve by Thursday

The view of my art desk this week is filled with bright colors from my new collection of Turkish artwork pendants. They will be up in my online shop for just a few days…until Thursday evening, November 20th.

Turkish art pendants, Turkey, Istanbul, Iznik, artwork, jewelry, necklace

The designs inside the pendants are beautiful Turkish gilded artwork. I then encased the art under glass and made them into pendants.

I also have brand new square pendants! I think these are just lovely and unique.

And the very first pieces of my “Geometric” collection – made from my abstract watercolor artwork – are finished as well. These are super bright and happy.

I’m offering my readers first pick of these cool pendants. If you see one you love, please reserve in my online shop by Thursday evening, November 20th.

Once a pair is reserved, I will take it off the list and there will never be another one exactly like it. On Friday I’ll be sending them to the fabulous new Nite Gallery opening in my hometown of Albia, Iowa.

New Turkish Artwork Earrings – 2 Day Reserve Sale

The View from my Art Desk – New Turkish Artwork Earrings – 2 Day Reserve Sale

I just finished a new collection of handmade art earrings and I’ve fallen in love with them. I feel like this is my most beautiful collection yet.

The designs inside the earrings are amazing Turkish gilded artwork that I found while wondering around inside the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. I matched the different designs up in pairs, then encased the art under glass and fixed them into earrings.

I want to give my readers first pick of these beauties – if you see one you love, please reserve at this link in my online shop by Monday evening, November 3rd. Once a pair is reserved, I will take it off the list and there will never be another one exactly like it.

Turkish Earrings Choices

The reason for the quick, 2 day only reserve sale is that on Tuesday I’ll be taking the collection of earrings over to the fabulous store, The Local Exchangelocated on the Historic Marietta Square in Marietta, Georgia. The earrings (and my Christmas ornaments & Christmas cards) will will be available for the holiday season there starting with their Holiday Open House this Friday.

These will be a bit hard to let go of…I may have to give each one a hug goodbye.  (I had a moment where I thought maybe I’d tuck them all away in my own jewelry box.) But what I love the most about making art is being able to share it – and sharing these bright, beautiful Turkish artwork earrings with you is a little dream come true.

Happy New Year 2014!

Happy New Year from Emily Lupita Studio!

Sending out wishes for a happy and prosperous new year!

I love writing New Year resolutions & this year I decided to create a fun poster to display some of them here in my studio.

2014 6 SQUARE

Sharing here the steps to make one of your own…I’d love to see what you create!

New Year Resolutions Poster Project:

#1: Find a picture or photograph that you love. (I used one of my landscape paintings I made of San Cristobal.)

#2: Divide the picture into 9 squares. Fade out the middle square and four of the corner squares.

#3: Write the year in the middle and your resolutions in the corners. Play around with the fonts & colors.

#4: Put up your inspirational poster somewhere you’ll see it every morning and visualize your dreams coming true!

Happiness,

-Emily Lupita
