Painting

These are some detail shots of some paintings I've been working on. I've been playing around with painting lately and it's been a refreshing departure from my usual workflow of mostly computer editing. I went to art school but have never been good at drawing or painting so the experience of painting brings me way out of my comfort zone. I've really enjoyed working with color and how unpredictable the process is. 

I've also been listening to the Creative Insurgents podcast and want to recommend it to all fellow artists. It's challenged me to think about where I want my work to lead me and also offers unconventional ideas on how to get business, get into shows, etc. If you're thinking about listening the "Straight Talk on the Business of Being an Artist with Shirley Williams" and "How to Create Art in a Series and Why You Should with Lisa Call." Thanks to my friend Lacey for that discovery!

Double Exposures

I've posted some new double exposures the past few weeks that I'm really excited about. I was in my hometown for several weeks in August and got to shoot about 8 or 9  rolls of things and places that are meaningful for me. Some of these images above are from those rolls and I'll be sharing more as Lacey works her magic and shoots over them. I've been thinking about the idea of home and having a hometown so I expect to write more about that later on. 

I also recently opened an Etsy shop! I was very thankful to have a lot of excitement and interested buyers when I first announced our double exposures. I got to sell several prints but wanted to offer the opportunity for people to buy them at their leisure through an online shop. Thank you to all those who supported this project so far!
