Excited to share that I painted live on Facebook last night while working on one of my large scale abstract pieces and shared a bit of my creative process.

I'm so excited to share that four of my abstract paintings were selected to be part of the permanent corporate art collection of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan, New York! Pictured below are two of four of the pieces installed in their office building on 2nd Avenue in downtown Manhattan. Thanks so much to Octavia Art Gallery in New Orleans for coordinating the sale of these pieces and the installation. They did such a wonderful job!

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!
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 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. 😊
