I’m 10 weeks into my yearly project and am celebrating with this giant bouquet of flowers! The opera & turquoise really shine with their happy, bright contrast.

I’ve missed painting my Guadalupes! With a whole year of flowers ahead of me, I needed to find a way to incorporate Lupita into the design.

I’m thinking this is my first artistic “breakthrough” of this massive painting project – the guidelines of the project helped push me toward something new. “Necessity is the mother of invention.”

I’m having so much fun painting flowers in vases. This is my second one and I’m really enjoying the color combinations – how the colors play between the flowers and the vase.

I used Sakura ink & antique Irodori Japanese watercolors to paint the the flowers (above), then added a background of handmade Japanese paper (below) to create this art print. I like how the background gives another level to the color combos and creates the illusion of the vase sitting on a table.

2015 – The Year of Flowers

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

Happy New Year!

I love New Year’s Day. This is a wonderful time to reflect on our journey and look forward to the coming year. My New Year’s resolution for my artwork this year is to keep my heart open to the awesome possibilities and opportunities that await my creative spirit, however (and whenever/wherever ) they may manifest.

DSC_0686

Within that overall resolution, I do have one specific goal. I’d like to start (and finish) a “Yearly Project” – a self-imposed ritual where an artist makes the same thing (one thing) every week for an entire year and shares it with the world. No skipping. The purpose of this type of project, as I see it, is to instill a sense of routine, to be responsible for sharing once a week, to develop my technique, and just generally not to allow myself to give up on painting.

DSC_0685

So, I’ve decided that 2015 will be A Year of Flowers. I’ll be making one flower every week for the whole year and sharing it here. Those are the only guidelines…it could be a simple ink drawing of a single flower or a complete watercolor garden painting. Or maybe Lupita with a flower in her hair.

DSC_0681

And so my A Year of Flowers project begins with my first flower. I painted a garden of peonies (above) and then added a bright yellow background (below) to create a joyful, happy art print.

[ The art print is now available here. ]

[I’ve just created a special page for photos from this project on my website here.]

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
