Gem Show

So excited to post some images from a recent show I had at The Social Club in Norman, Oklahoma. I was their featured artist for November and I decided to display all the little gem paintings I've been working on from the past year. I've always loved working on a small scale and this was a perfect way to show off my "rock collection". 

I loved the idea of displaying them in an almost scientific format with the thick cradled wood acting as a boxed illusion of the specimen. Added with the fact that they are tiny, it just seemed to go hand in hand. I'm also incredibly fond of rainbows and it just seemed the most natural way to display these little paintings I love so much.

You can shop originals and prints here

Here are some photos of the show as well as a few favorites of mine!

One of my favorites, and also took soooo long to paint. I think I'll keep him.

Insta-Love: Life lately, according to Instagram

Some snapshots from my iPhone from the past few weeks.  Lately I've been obsessed with painting constellations and sleeping animals, although this is an ongoing obsession.  

The sun has also been out and it feels lovely, especially through my studio windows.  I could do without the insane Galveston humidity… you walk outside and it's like being in a sauna. Ugh.

My plants have been blooming (and dying).  I'll need to make another trip to Tom's Thumb. I'm in the mood for succulents this time around. 

If you haven't been watching the news, there was a tornado that hit my hometown, Oklahoma City on May 20.  It was really hard to watch the news without getting emotional.  Luckily all my friends and family were safe, but others were not so lucky.  Donate to redcross.org if you can!  Wishing everyone there a speedy recovery.
