Paintings on the “Cradle”

I’ve recently mounted paintings onto deep cradled wood panels, sometimes painted on the sides, sometimes not. Here they are individually and as a group.  Click on any photo to enlarge and browse.

The paintings are at the Marketplace at Placita Santa Fe (5034 Doniphan Dr, El Paso) or at First Impressions Salon (6633 N Mesa St # 502 – ask for Leslie)  

Because they are mounted on wood and are not behind glass, they can be shipped.  Contact me if you’d like details.  

On the Easel

Hello everyone!  It’s been a productive week so far including doing several value sketches, finishing Cactus Queen and hopefully finishing this piece to submit both to a show this weekend!  We shall see…

I wanted to share the progress on this piece including my set up.  I paint exclusively now standing up at my easel for the most part with the painting almost vertical.  If I need to I can quickly level the painting to not have the paint puddle. So on the left I have several reference photos, not working completely and specifically from any of them, but largely using the value sketch to guide me.

My prints, cards, and magnets are available at the Marketplace @ Placita Santa Fe, 5034 Doniphan inside the Magic Bistro!

Marketplace @ Placita Santa Fe

I’m pleased to announce that I again have a physical place in town to show my work on a daily basis!  I’ve joined a booth of other artists at the Marketplace @ the Placita Santa Fe, which is a large gift shop with an eclectic mix of special things for gifts or for yourself!  We’re located inside the Magic Bistro restaurant at 5034 Doniphan Dr  and open every day but Monday.  I have prints, magnets and cards in the shop, and I will be there this Wednesday afternoon, October 25th, so stop by for yummy food and say hello!

Magnetic Display

ATC frames by Seven Gypsies work perfectly for this purpose

I have had these frames for artists trading cards since the time ATCs were all the rage, and I am glad I held on to them. They are perfect to display my watercolor magnets. Wish I had at least another one. I have to see if they are still for sale. 

Today I am going in to set up some prints, cards, and magnets at the Marketplace @Placita Santa Fe.  Excited about this opportunity. More on that later! We will have an open house at the end of October.  Hope to see you there!
