I'm busy this week with taking pictures of all the new art, editing photos, and such so I won't be doing much in the way of painting this week as I need to focus all my energy on admin things.

Which means I have a bunch of new art for you! I believe I counted 17 new paintings!

Yea! 

And there's all sizes...so if you need a small painting to beautify that desk or shelf, or if you have big empty wall that needs a big dose of color.

I've got ya covered. :D

I'll be updating my online shop with all the new paintings later this week, but if you don't want to miss out,   sign up to be notified here: http://www.pauletteinsall.com/newsletter-sign-up

A labor of love

I took most of the last year off from painting while we were renovating/selling our house and then searching/buying/moving into a new one. I had forgotten how long my varnishing process takes. It is so much more than just putting on a layer of varnish....its a slow, meticulous process...

Since I use mixed media, i.e. pastels, graphite, etc., along with acrylics, I need to make sure that the other media doesn't smear and is fully protected. So first I apply a fixative. Then once that is dry, an isolation coat., which fully seals the surface before the final varnish is applied.

Only after this all completely dry, do I apply a UV satin removable archival varnish. I use a removable varnish because this enables the varnish to be removed if the painting ever needs to cleaned for conservation purposes.

All this insures that my paintings will be around for many years....to bring beauty and joy to the lives of future generations as well as yours. 😊

Much love + blessings,

Inspired by spring!

I'm so glad spring is finally here! It's been a long dreary rainy season here in Portland, much more than usual. Of course that made me look forward to spring's arrival even more! And it's showing in my newest paintings...some of which are very heavily on the side of Impressionism and others lean towards a more edgier contemporary modern flair with their heavily textured surfaces.
