Tattered Heart

12X12, Mixed Media on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Purchase information

 

February is heart month. I painted this mixed media painting today in my studio. I used Golden fluid acrylics and played around with some modeling paste, stencils, stamps and even a sprinkle of magic glitter! Boy was that fun, yes I have to say that making art heals my heart. Best way to take care of your heart is to limit saturated fat. Do it! I had to have two stents put in to my coronary artery because of blockages from coronary artery disease and I don't want it to happen to you. If I can change my diet, anyone can.

Painting in oils is such a great thrill for me. This is part of of online class I'm taking and I must say that I am really enjoying it. Thank goodness what I have learned painting in acrylics all these years transfers over into using oils, its just different getting used to dipping in the medium and the names of the pigments.

I love the richness of reds and blue greens together in a painting. These poppies were such a joy to paint!

I counted the paintings I have on hand (my demos from the classes I teach) and I have over 150! So I decided to go in and rework a few of them... well a lot of them. This is my favorite thing to do, it's so much fun to add a bit more to a painting that's pretty much completed already. Be on the lookout for many more of these to come!

I had the urge to paint a face today. I've been getting into collage lately, blinging out my paintings with all kinds of stuff. This girl is actually luminous (the photo doesn't do her justice) from my Blue Interferenze paint by Golden Fluid Acrylics. She had jewels and flowers and an organza ribbon. Shine bright my friends and never never never give up!


You need more boots!

This past summer I came up with this idea... to create a mixed media boot using beautiful papers collaged onto a canvas panel and then bling it out with all kinds of fun embellishments! I think I'm onto something cuz it's addictive! 

Yes, we all need more boots! Let's get 'em!

So, I took the BIG LEAP and opened my teaching space/art studio in March this year at what used to be Loomis Photography Studio (1711 Green Bay Road in Kenosha). I've been dreaming of doing this for as long as I can remember. Okay, YES -it's scary and exciting... it's a leap of faith and a big committment, but I've been ready. So far, the studio has been doing well even though its a little slow during the summer months. Thankfully we've been getting a lot of private parties here at the studio AND at other restaurants and bars nearby.

 

Our mainstay is canvas and wine glass painting parties and fundraisers. We've got some new things in the works: large canvas paint classes, art journal class, live model drawing sessions, Mommy & Me parties, Open Paint (for anyone needing to finish a painting), Ongoing (8 week) Paint Classes, Wooden Sign Painting party. This fall, Christmas Ornament Painting and Glass Mugs, and more soul soothing stuff...music, dance, retreats/workshops. The possibilities are magical! And YES I do have a gallery wall of my work that is for sale. 

 

I just want to thank you for all of the love, support, encouragement and success of Paint Party Girl and Paint Party Art Studio! Can't wait to see you next time at the studio! XOXO!!!

February 27th my dream of a lifetime came true, with the opening of my own studio right here in Kenosha! I named it "Paint Party Art Studio" because I will have a lot of my art classes (aka paint and sip parties) there as well as a variety of other classes and workshops. It's been a whirlwind as you can imagine/ I can't believe it's taken me this long to blog about it. Anyway, the place need some work... February I spent the entire month getting the studio ready, painting and buying shelving units and whatnot. Here are some photos...





I love how it turned out! It is still a work in progress but everyone has been very complimentary and saying how comfortable the space is and that they love it too!

 

So just thought I'd tell you a little bit about what we have to offer for you at the studio.

 

Public Paint Parties

First off, I love to paint, draw, create and share what I know with others because it has been such a healing journey for me and I know art heals others when they allow themselves to let go and just play. So, I want to continue teaching and selling my work in this space by offering paint and sip sessions (both canvas painting AND glass painting) as well as some new classes that are in the works. We've just started offering mixed media, life drawing, gelli printing and kids camps! We offer nightly (check our schedule) public paint parties and you can bring your own snacks and beverages. Our classes are usually 6:30 pm to 9pm and require advance registration through paintpartyartstudio.com.

Private Parties

We also offer private paint parties for 8 to 40 people. Have your event catered or bring your own food and beverages. Price is typically $35 to $40 per person and you choose the painting, time and the music. Choose the class, canvas painting with acrylic, glass painting, mixed media, make a dream catcher, etc... there are many more.

 

Party Venue Rental

You can rent our studio for your next party. Price varies, call for quote.

 

Pop Up Artist Gallery Rental

Rent our studio for your own artist gallery showing for a night! We can pull our paintings down off of our shelves and you can quickly and easily put yours up! Call for quote.

 

Artist Workshop/Retreats Studio Space

Our studio is a great place to hold your multi-day seminar, workshop or retreat. Centrally located on Green Bay Road in Kenosha, Wisconsin, your guests have access to beautiful Lake Michigan in a matter of minutes. They can fly into Chicago - Ohare or Milwaukee - Mitchell airports and get to our studio in 45 minutes. Kenosha is the best of both worlds with our small town heart and big city amenities nearby!

 

Mobile Paint Parties

I am still offering mobile parties and fundraisers throughout Wisconsin and Illinois. If you need to contact me about an event, a work of mine you'd like commissioned or private tutoring, text me at 847-630-9213!
