Spring is here, time to get out and interact! 

For some reason during the winter months I tend to paint a lot but not get out as much to showcase my work. With a lot of projects , comission paintings, moving,  and two precious children, I was happily busy at home for the winter.  Now it’s spring and I have two events approaching quickly!

 On April 1st I will be donating a painting that will be painted live at the gala event. I greatly enjoy doing live painting and letting others watch my process and see my passion for art. 

On Saturday, May 13th, I will be showcasing at Stanley’s Beer and Bacon Festival. I will have many prints for sale there and a few originals. Please come, say Hi, and enjoy the great atmosphere! http://www.stanleysbarroom.com/stanleysbeerandbaconfest/tickets/

Tis the season for giving and loving.

I am very happy to say I have been extra busy with comissioned paintings that clients have ordered for Christmas gifts. I would like to take a minute just to express my gratitude and appretiation to all of you who have allowed me to be a part of your special gift!  I have completed a few portraits and have many orders  coming in of customized cabin/lake home paintings that are turning out great!

I promise I will share them in time but do not want to ruin the surprise for anyone. Your continued support and confidence have allowed me to continue my dream and passion while being able to provide for my family. As I sit here and reflect I cannot help but to give God the biggest shout out. For without him I would have nothing. He has given me a talent and is allowing me to share it. I am so very grateful for him, family, and for all of you fans and supporters. Thank you!!! I am continuing to take custom orders for Christmas and am open to all ideas.. please message me or email (amarie700@gmail.com) me for a estimated price.

Painting from photos.

While I am continuing my state of the art and close up series; I have been working on  many commissioned projects which require me to be flexible with style and techniques as well. This is one of the most challenging yet rewarding things about commissioned work. A great deal of my commissioned works come from photos so my job is to find out what my client wants as far as style and composition.  I have included a few photos of some recent commissioned pieces and photos which inspired the pieces.

Glimpse of a new series… Wildlife up close!

While I plan on continuing my State of the Art Series, I am going to start working on a new series of paintings…Wildlife up close. I have always had a fascination for exotic animals , especially  large cats so I plan on staring there. My first one of the series is one of the most beautiful animals… The white tiger. Stay tuned for more large scale close ups!

Portrait Paintings

“Kapri”. 10″ X 10″. Painting project collaboration with artist Kapri & Amy Kulseth.

A challenge for me as an artist has always been painting portraits of loved ones. I am unsure if it is because I see them in a different way or the fact that I see so many different faces from these people. I decided to turn a recent portrait painting of my daughter into a project for her because she so loves to help mom! I painted her portrait, covered it, and let her use fluorescent paint markers to decorate the background. Love how it turned out!
