2018 Art Updates (& Studio Reno News!)

My exciting news update is that…I’m officially an artist and proud member of Swell Artist Collective here in Boise!  Swell puts on a lot of local art events here in Boise you may have already gone to in the past couple of years.  As for my newness to the group, I feel like I’ve already been able to participate in all sorts of goodness.  Earlier this year I was part of the Howdy Show at Swell, the Art Deck-O 6 Show at the Visual Artist Collective and next month, I’ll be doing this summer’s Art Crawl (June 23rd).  Want to stay up to date on Swell events?  Check her out here.

Also! For those that follow along on IG and have been watching my stories, you already know this but for any new peeps, I’m also stoked to share that we’re in the middle of our studio renovation! Our studio is a sun room attached to our house, right off the kitchen.  It’s the perfect size for my art needs.  But there is one downside to our studio space…it’s not insulated or temperature controlled.  Er go, it’s definitely going to be worth it to get it insulated and up to code.  So we are in the process of making that happen!  We’re getting new walls, windows, door, floor and all that jazz.  It should be done within a couple months! More on that soon. (Follow along on IG for more day to day updates).

Before the studio was torn down for the reno, I was a busy bee. I worked on some abstract pieces and a new mixed media piece as well. Contact me to purchase any of the below. 🙂

My most recent completed works:

Black and White Photo Challenge

I was challenged by a friend on Instagram to take 7 photographs over the course of 7 days, all in black and white.  The only rules were the photos couldn’t have any people or pets and also no explanation for your photos.  Challenge accepted!  Each photo was taken on my handy dandy cell phone. 

 

Cheers!

Custom Cow Painting

I am so excited to share this new custom cow painting I made for @jeff41005!  It just arrived to his home in Kentucky and the kind words he said about the piece warmed my heart!  That is why I do what I do. Making people happy, adding some joy to their home and spreading love through art, you really can’t beat that.

When he emailed me about his custom painting, he wrote that he wanted something similar to my giraffe painting with blues/greens and to make it extra fun and funky.  As a lot of you know, I’m a big fan of incorporating collage and mixed media into my paintings.  I used portions of paper and also portions of a 1947 Life Magazine to create the mountains.  Below are a couple in progress shots specifically with the cow.

I had a BLAST making this for him and love knowing this will be hanging on his walls. 😃  Thank you Jeff for your appreciation in my art and I hope your cow enjoys its new home!

The finished piece!  So happy with how she turned out!  

 

Cheers!

Weekend in the Studio

I had quite a productive weekend in the studio!  Here’s a small sample of current projects I started over the past few days.  Ink drawings on paper using lines, shapes and spaces.  Stippling has also been making its way back into my work lately.

Sometimes the best form of meditation for me is putting black ink on white paper and just watching the lines form.

Stay tuned for more future projects.  In the mean time, I hope you’re enjoying your week, getting your make on or just doing whatever makes you happy.

Cheers,

EH
