Growing Wild Plums – Painting 3

Painting #3:

A scene from our living room out on the hill. Always a loyal good dog nearby. Art and color everywhere. My mother’s paintings 🖼 on the walls. She won many art prizes over the years. Her iris paintings even won best in show. I would sit and try to make art like she did, but my paintings looked different. I’ve always had my own style and I’m lucky to have an artist mom who encouraged me to paint in my own way. This painting is the closest thing to how I remember that room in my childhood home. This is how I see the world.

Third Painting In-Progress: “Painting at the Table”

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.

Lupita Christmas Tree Ornaments

This Week at Emily Lupita Studio – Lupita Christmas Tree Ornaments

I’m delighted to introduce to you my new art project…Lupita Christmas Ornaments!

Emily Lupita Studio Christmas Tree Ornaments Handmade Artwork Holiday Gift Decoration
Original Painting 3×3 Ornament

For the last several years, I have been experimenting with how to create Christmas tree ornaments from my Lupita artwork. With the help of my mother’s artistic vision and encouragement, I have tried out so many different ideas over the years…including adventures in printed fabric, embroidery, polymer clay, layered felt, and colored wool.

Emily Lupita Studio Christmas Tree Ornaments Handmade Artwork Holiday Gift Decoration

This year, I finally found what I’ve been searching for – a way to share my Lupita artwork in a size and style that will fit nicely on a Christmas tree.  I have both original paintings (photos above) and also art prints for ornaments featuring my more intricate paintings & designs (photos below).

Emily Lupita Studio Christmas Tree Ornaments Handmade Artwork Holiday Gift Decoration

The ornaments are made by coating & sealing my artwork onto small canvas panels, then attaching a ribbon and adding pretty craft paper to the back. The original paintings are on canvas blocks stretched over a wooden frame and the art prints are on flat canvas panels.

I tried to make them in a mix of more traditional Christmas colors of red & green, as well as my Lupita style of bright pink & rainbow colors. They come in two sizes – 3×3 and 2×2 inches square.

Emily Lupita Studio Christmas Tree Ornaments Handmade Artwork Holiday Gift Decoration

Each ornament is handcrafted individually and takes quite awhile to make (especially the ones made from original paintings), so there’s only a limited number of them available this first year. I have a collection of them up in my online art shop and also currently have a small collection at The Local Exchangelocated on the Historic Marietta Square in Marietta, Georgia.

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.

DSC_0694

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.

DSC_0704

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.

DSC_0688

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.

An Interview With The Youth Museum

This Week At Emily Lupita Studio – An Interview With The Youth Museum:

I had the wonderful experience of being invited to The Youth Museum here in Marietta. This non-profit museum is located near Marietta High School in a beautiful and serene forest park full of lovely trees. Ms. Anita Vannice, the 2014 Auction Co-Chair, was a wonderful host and showed me around the museum.

flying pink girl with wings by artist Emily Lupita

I donated one of my original Lupita watercolor paintings for the silent auction at the museum’s annual fundraising event this coming weekend. I chose the “Lupita with Pink Dragonfly Wings” painting because children love bright colors and this is a very bright & joyful Lupita.

flying pink girl with wings by artist Emily Lupita

 

The Youth Museum, Marietta, GA – Interview

Thank you to Ms. Anita Vannice for this great interview!

What is the mission of The Youth Museum? 

The Youth Museum is a non-profit educational resource center offering children the opportunity to learn about significant historical, social, and cultural events through instructional activities which integrate arts and education while emphasizing personal involvement and participation.

What age groups does it serve and how can tours be arranged?
Our current exhibit, “America’s Pathways to Independence” is based on the Georgia Performance Standards for 4th grade, and our tours are primarily made up of 4th grade classes.  However, some schools choose to send 3rd graders or even 5th graders if they are covering this time period in their social studies class that year.

To arrange a tour for your class, please call the Youth Museum at 770-427-2563.  We do 2 tours a day (weekdays only), 9:30am and 11:30am.

3e41eed5b1fcb13580b9b5a232a4efb2_duu6_5ust
What are some activities visitors experience when they come to the museum?

Students who come to the Youth Museum will see and participate in historical events that led to the eventual winning of our independence.  This is done through skits that are integrated into the story being told by the costumed docent.  Students will see and participate in historical events such as protest meetings, the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere’s ride, the writing of the Declaration of Independence, the Battle of Yorktown, and the writing of the Constitution, just to name a few.

When I took the tour, you described how you integrate performance art into the history lessons. I thought this was so wonderful! Can you talk more about this and how performance art can add value to learning?

The performance comes in when students get to put on costumes and portray actual people from this time period in our history in the format of a small skit that is acting out an actual historical event.  When we train the students for their skit, we also get an opportunity to talk about their particular person and also fill in some details regarding the event.  This one-on-one interaction along with the performance and watching of the skits gives texture to the material students learn in the classroom.  It gives the history more context and shape so that it is no longer just facts read from a book.

a11b9074deee8bc4a81b5e34d5dcd793_cd5e
The Youth Museum also puts on a puppet show about historical events.

 

The annual fundraiser for the museum is coming up soon. How can people get involved with the fundraiser to support the museum?

Please come out and enjoy our 12th annual Barbecue in the Woods and Silent Auction on September 6, 5-8pm at the museum. (Located at 649 Cheatham Hill Drive, Marietta, GA.)  Eat some great barbecue provided by BBQ-1, listen to music by the Old Mill Road Band, and even bid on our silent auction items.  Tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for kids (6-12). We have great silent auction items such as tickets to various events around Marietta, an overnight at the Lodge & Spa at Callaway Gardens, a hot air balloon ride, some great wine (individual bottles and baskets) and, of course, some great art by local artists… including Emily Lupita!
You can call the museum to reserve your tickets at 770-427-2563 or you may pay at the door.  Please park at the Marietta High School parking lot (1171 Whitlock Ave.) or in the Kennesaw Mountain NBP Cheatham Hill Drive lot.  Shuttle transportation will be provided.  This is a rain or shine event.

This Week At Emily Lupita Studio – New Art Jewelry Collection:

I’ve been a busy bee these last few weeks working to finish my new art jewelry collection.

Artist Emily Lupita of Emily Lupita Studio creating handcrafted artwork jewelry wearable art It’s been fun to see the individual pieces emerge from the rather intensive hands-on process of creating each pendant and set of earrings. These pictures show the jewelry in several different stages such as a waxed print, a print transfixed to the glass, and the final glass design being set into the metal bases.

“Lupita World” Art Series

This Week At Emily Lupita Studio – The View From my Art Desk:

I have a new set of watercolor paintings rolling out…I’m calling it the “Lupita World” Art Series.

Emily Lupita Studio artist Emily Lupita watercolor painting
Lupita Hugs the World

The series is made up of 15 paintings – all featuring my Lupita world & made with extra bright Irodori antique palette watercolors.

 

Emily Lupita Studio artist Emily Lupita watercolor painting
Lupita Gives the Gift of Peace

My idea with this series was to create a group of paintings that all have a similar feeling and energy about them, focusing in on one design aspect (the globe), while still maintaining a sense of individual uniqueness.

Emily Lupita Studio artist Emily Lupita watercolor painting
Lupita Hugs the World

As I progressed, somewhere around my 7th or 8th painting, the process became more like meditation for me.

Emily Lupita Studio artist Emily Lupita watercolor painting stars
Lupita Hugs the World – Stars

 

By repeating the design, I gained confidence that I knew how to draw it – really knew it (especially around my 11th & 12th painting) and that freed me to think more creatively about the designs inside the kimonos.

Emily Lupita Studio artist Emily Lupita watercolor painting moon
Lupita Hugs the World – Moon

 

And I started experimenting more with color, resulting in my very first “golden” Lupita. The combination of gold, browns, and a pale antique blue…I had never tried it before & I ended up just falling in love with it.

Emily Lupita Studio artist Emily Lupita watercolor painting

The original paintings in this series will be showing at the MSAA Gallery until the end of August. Stop by to see them displayed in matching white gallery frames – they look so wonderful all together on the wall.

You can shop for an original custom made painting from this collection, plus many more art prints and cards in my online Art Shop.
