Orion nebula

New Studio, a Siren, and a Nebula Print!

I've been a little MIA lately and that's mostly due to the fact I packed things up and moved to a larger studio. I'm so excited to have more space, light, and the sweetest little balcony. It's still a little too chilly, but I'm really looking forward to bringing my oils outside and painting in the sunshine.

This space is only temporary since we will be moving this summer, but for the moment it's nice to enjoy all the new places we've been able to visit/live. 

Scanned version of one of my sirens. I have several in progress atm, and I can't wait to see how each piece will emerge into it's own being. One of my favorite things about painting is the process of layering. Each layer brings with it new depth, life, and mistakes, which results in this new creation that has so much energy to it. It's the reason I love painting so much.

Also wanted to mention I now have Orion Nebula prints in my shop. I love the crispness and color in these prints; they turned out incredibly lovely. Painting galaxies and nebulae has proven to be a very spiritual and calming experience. 

I'm painting and packing prints in the studio today. Hope you all have a fulfilling and wonderful week!
