I finished all of the background layers of this painting over the weekend. It is complex and a bit chaotic, which is like me. I have made a few other paintings in this style and have one more still in progress that I hope to finish by this summer. I am drawn to create paintings that are full of personal symbols, colors, and words. Even if most of these elements are covered up in the final painting they are still embedded into the painting. Part of my soul will travel with it wherever it goes. I hope that you enjoy this peak into my process.
I have already started the final focal layers which I will share with you soon. I aim for this painting to be whimsical and happy, but not overly bright. Check back soon to keep up with my progress.

I have a loving husband who thinks I'm a bit crazy to be so obsessed with art. I am a mother of five children from ages 21 to 5. I spend most of my time mothering and keeping house. In my free time I like to play with textiles, art journaling and painting. I have a degree in textile and apparel studies with a design focus. Right now I am more interested in fiber arts than apparel design, but I don't know where my journey will take me.
