Q & A: Where Do You Paint?

DSC_0054

Where do you paint?

My favorite place to paint is next to the window in my studio room in the mornings.  I play uplifting music, open the windows, make a nice tea, and spend some quality time with my colors to start my day. My dogs love it, too, and sit at my feet or up on the arm of the sofa to watch me paint.

Sometimes I enjoy going outside to sit on my rose garden bench to paint. I like to watch the world going by and it is always a good way to meet new neighbors. My mom and I are planning to go to the Botanical Garden to paint the next time she comes for a visit. Can’t wait!

Where do you like to paint? Do you ever go to coffee shops or parks or mountain tops to be inspired?

Happiness,

New Gallery & Artwork Shop

OnlineShop6

I have a new online gallery…hurray!

Creating it has been a true labor of love for some time now, so I’m delighted to see it this morning fully up and running. There are still several paintings and a few collections I need to add to it, but I’m excited with how it has turned out so far. I especially love how I can group the paintings into different collections, as well as have one collection showing all paintings together.

This gallery also serves as my new artwork shop. I’ve partnered with Fine Art America, the premiere artist support company online, to do all the printing. Because they have such a wide network, orders can be placed & shipped world-wide and products include professional artist prints in a range of paper (like watercolor, rag & velvet), prints on canvas, metal & acrylic, greeting cards and even artwork prints on iphone cases. (I’m especially excited about getting a new iphone case with my artwork on it!)IMG_2212

They also offer a wide range of framing & matting options in a variety of sizes, so you can customize the painting to fit where it will hang. The best thing is they have full customer service for buyers and a money back guarantee on all products. I’m so very grateful for their partnership with all of this amazing support and look forward to the places this new path will take me.

I’d love for you to visit the new gallery & post a comment below.

Great Painting Music: “Glorious” by MaMuse

LupitaPlaystheGuitar

My wonderful husband has set up a stereo system in my studio so I can listen to music in style while I paint. It has been a real blessing and  I love turning up the tunes now that the sound is so good. He also linked the system to Pandora, the online radio, so I’ve been enjoying getting to hear new songs mixed in with my favorites on my Pandora stations.

One of my favorite new discoveries is the song, “Glorious” by MaMuse. So wonderful! I purchased their whole album, “All the Way” on iTunes because I love their sound so much & wanted to support their music. You can take a listen & learn more about MaMuse here:

What music do you enjoy listening to while creating? I’d love suggestions for great music.

Happiness,
