Stole a few hours yesterday afternoon to plop myself down at Van Vleck gardens and paint. The place is absolutely gorgeous and abundant with beautiful flowers and grasses. Here’s a peek at what I worked on.
So here is the final shoe. I worked on this all winter, going back and forth to Bloomies in between teaching and other projects. It was lots of fun and I think I still have pink paint under my nails! ;)
My art was recently selected for a really fun public sculpture project at Bloomingdales. Over the next few weeks I will be painting, constructing and papier mache-ing an enormous 6 foot shoe which will ultimately sit on the sales floor of the Short Hills Bloomingdales shoe department! I am attaching a photo of my design process-including the sketches I submitted for the project. Guess which one they chose?
Reception details to come. :)
I've been enjoying watercolors a lot lately. I rely less on line and more on shape and texture. Created these for use in licensing work in an attempt to develop a more traditional look. But the whimsy still shows through. (can't help myself)
Even though I left summer kicking and screaming (the pool, the beach-over...WEEP!) I have always loved fall. Been taking so many long walks since September and love looking at the constantly changing skies. Dramatic grays against the fiery reds and oranges of the trees. Came back to my studio and created this from my imagination.
