Week 15 – A Year of Flowers 2015 – “Lupita with Yellow Roses in Her Hair”

A Year of Flowers 2015 – Week 15 at Emily Lupita Studio

This is Week 15 of my A Year of Flowers art project. I made another sister for my Lupitas…and now there are three!

This newest painting is “Lupita with Yellow Roses in Her Hair” and I love how sweet and happy she looks. The beautiful red roses sparkle, but it is her eyes that really shine.

Week 14 – A Year of Flowers 2015 – “Lupita with Daisies in Her Hair”

A Year of Flowers 2015 – Week 14 at Emily Lupita Studio

This is Week 14 of my A Year of Flowers art project. This week I made a sister for my Week 13 Lupita.

I just keep looking at these two lovely ladies. Wow, they are something really new and exciting for me as an artist.

This newest painting is “Lupita with Daisies in Her Hair” and I love the expression on her face. Is she thinking of a long, faraway love? Is she about to laugh? Or cry? I don’t know…it’s a mystery and that’s what I like.

Happy Holidays! Book Signing & Big News

Happy Holidays! Book Signing & Big News- This Week at Emily Lupita Studio

One of my favorite things is attending book signing events where I get to meet with people and talk about art, writing, and creativity. These are some of my favorite photos from my recent book signing event at the MSAA Gallery on the Marietta Square.

It was such a lovely time! I especially enjoyed meeting the young visitors to the gallery and sharing my book, The Artist’s Alphabet, with them.

The MSAA Gallery has copies of my book on display for the holiday season. You can also find my book (as well as paintings, cards & jewelry) at The Nite Gallery in Albia, Iowa.  This year I’m offering signed books, custom alphabet paintings, and custom alphabet art prints & cards in my  online holiday shopas well.

Handmade Holiday Gifts – Order by December 15th for Christmas Delivery – This Week at Emily Lupita Studio

I love making handmade art, especially this time of year. The festive preparations for the holiday season give me so much inspiration. The Christmas tree is up and the beautiful handmade wreaths my mother made us are hanging on our doors. Every time I walk by them I smile and feel like my creative energy is being nurtured.

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.

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

This Week: Book Pre-Order & Thank You Cards & Alphabet Drawings

This Week @ Emily Lupita Studio:

I’m excited to share that the pre-order listing for The Artist’s Alphabet book is now up in my Etsy Shop. This is cool because if you’d like a copy, you can order it now online and as soon as the books arrive at my studio I’ll ship one out to you. I’ll sign each pre-order copy and will also be happy to dedicate the book to someone special, just let me know who in the “notes to seller” section at checkout.

This is the link:    www.etsy.com/listing/169174662/book-pre-order-the-artists-alphabet-26

The book will also be available on Amazon.com in December, but anything ordered directly from Amazon won’t be signed or dedicated since the books ship out directly from the warehouse and won’t pass through my hands.

I was so happy to receive the special “Thank You!” cards I designed this week. I’m really pleased with how they turned out and find myself picking them up over & over and smiling. Now that the cards are here, I’ve started writing my thank you notes to each of my 75 Kickstarter backers. I’ve enjoyed spending time with each note & thinking about each individual person as I write to thank them. I hope my backers love their cards!

I’ve also been continuing my work on the original alphabet paintings. I’ve finished drawing a few more of the canvases – Friendship and Gratitude.

Sending wishes for a beautiful week ahead,

-Emily Lupita
