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,

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.

Week 11 – A Year of Flowers 2015 – “Modern Trees”

A Year of Flowers 2015 – Week 11 at Emily Lupita Studio

I feel like this is a good time to take a look at where I’ve traveled so far this year with my A Year of Flowers art project. These are the first 10 paintings I’ve made during the first 10 weeks of 2015.

Weeks 1-6 A Year of Flowers

My Week 11 painting features flowering trees in a cool, crisp modern style. Something different!

I used Sakura ink & antique Irodori Japanese watercolors to paint the flowering trees, then added a background of handmade Japanese paper to create this art print.

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.

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

Final Days of my Kickstarter Project

This Week at Emily Lupita Studio

The final few days of my Kickstarter project are here! (The project ends on October 31st.)  I’m truly grateful to the 55 amazing people who’ve backed my project so far. I now have 93% of the total pledges needed to fund The Artist’s Alphabet book. Almost there…

P is for Perseverence

This has been one of the busiest weeks here at my studio and also one of the very best. I’ve been enjoying the time I spend each day working on finishing up all the details of the book design. These are two screen shots from my latest layout to give you an idea of how the book will look when finished. (I also shared a few different screen shots on my Emily Lupita Studio Facebook page earlier this week if you’d like to see more.)

Friendship

I added a colorful first letter to the title word on each definition page as well as a fancy text divider underneath to better balance out the spacing . I still have a few more definitions to write because it takes me awhile to think of how I want to phrase each definition & I go through so many drafts for each word.

Kindness

The book cover is coming along nicely. I still need to format it to the printer’s specifications, but this is the latest design I’m working with as of today:

COVER FINAL

It’s hard to believe my Kickstarter project  will end on October 31st, only four days from now. It’s been an incredible journey so far and I’m excited to see where the next four days will take me.

Sending you all many heartfelt thanks for your support & encouragement,

-Emily Lupita
