A Few More Quilt Paintings

Here are a few more starts I've done in the quilt-inspired series. The ladies are part of the good mother series. You can see more of them and they men they love here.
I added the little painting of York to my shop this morning... check it out! Celebrate winter solstice tomorrow and Merry Christmas to everyone!

Good Mother Series

Here's a new one I've been working on that's called 'The Good Mother' series... each one has a good dose of repetition. I'm liking just the one color I've added to the black outline... a very light aqua. It's making me think of Art Deco colors and things. (although this photo does not really do the color justice, sorry!) Not quite sure where this one is going yet but I've got a good feeling about it :)

I added 2 new paintings from the 'Quilt Series' in my shop... they're priced very well so check 'em out! I'm going to be adding a new, medium size painting tomorrow!

Quilt-ish Paintings

Here's a series I've started... I shared a few on my Musings blog but not these. I got the idea thinking about repetition and quilts of all things. I love fabric and quilt shops so it's always been an influence. I'm not sure about the colors yet but I don't want them to be too 'matchy-matchy' even though they're a series. Hopefully the subject matter will unify them. The 2nd one really turned out to be confectionery! Looks like pink chocolates to me :)

I'm hoping to finish up a few of these and put them in the etsy shop soon. All the Christmas stuff, house guests and wild card kid's needs has put me behind in completing much. (but it doesn't stop me from starting new pieces... may be a pattern there!)

Tutu Girl on Stage...

I could have a lot of fun with the title of this painting... this is just a working title. I've been looking at so many toy catalogues lately, and went to a concert the other night those are the 2 inspirations for this painting! Maybe I should do a series - hmmmm. I'm trying to finish some pieces for the etsy shop... this time of year, it's so hard to get anything finished!!!
