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/

Win an original feather painting!

I recently had a good friend ask if i have ever considered painting on a feather.  Hmm never had tried that particular surface but I am always up for a challenge and trying to increase my skills. I decided to start with a turkey feather since they offer a larger painting surface. The process is similar to painting on a canvas but obviously much smaller. I decided to do a contest via Facebook to giveaway an original feather painting. One lucky winner gets to choose from 3 different feather paintings. Head over to my Facebook page to enter! https://m.facebook.com/AmyMarieArtFanpage/

” State of the Art Life Under Ice”

As a native Minnesotan I know the winters can be brutal but they also allow for some pretty great outdoor activities, one of the favorites of many… ice fishing! Two recent ice fishing paintings have been selling very well and it makes sense… it brings people memories of happy times doing what they love to do. I love painting these feel good paintings and am excited to start a new one.

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!

Little bit of everything.

Many people ask me one question when I tell them that I am an Artist; What do you paint? … ” A little bit of everything” seems to be the most fitting answer. With a large portion of my business being commissioned paintings, it allows me to get experience and challenges me to step out of my comfort zone… which is a must as an artist. I am very thankful to have clients that support me and have confidence in me to create a piece of art for them.
