Oh and check out this little guy. He makes me smile every time.
Circles. Not sure how I am going to continue this one.
Shades of relaxing.
I've got the name, and now I just need to let it dry to see how it goes from here.
Containers that I painted. Heavy cardboard that had gross designs that I redid. I love them now!
Detail of the front, top, and back of the large container (view from the back).

I finished 1 piece last week and hung it at The Hideaway, because one of my friends, Amanda purchased one of my pieces!!! So I figured I needed to move some of my other paintings around and add a new one. The new piece has an actually figure on it, a bird. I will take photos soon and post them. As for my new pieces that are yet to be completed, I have a yellow, brown, and red piece and then a 2 canvas piece. I'm not calling it a diptych just yet....because I may add one more canvas to it. My mom calls it "pickles with blood" but that name may not stick. (photos also to come soon)
I have begun to love craigslist and am now working on some new plans for a mural I am able to paint for Renee's Ceramic Cafe in Iowa City. I am very excited to work on it, a 9 foot by 9 foot area along with a 19 foot wall. And she said I can pretty much do anything I would like, but it has to be bright and fun like all my other paintings.
Let's see, I am also working on some information for the dailypalette. It is a website that features local Iowa artists. I feel like somethings are finally start to fall together, I just need to keep working on getting my art and my name out there!
I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of their day!

The gallery before anything was hung
These 2 pieces are on paper and some of my first abstract paintings
First piece from this semester
This piece was first a painting by my sister years ago. I painted over it and left some parts of her piece to show through.
Large piece that I painted first off the bars and then stretched later. First time I included a lot of detail with Sharpies.
I'm not sure about this one, I purchased a new orange and it was very bold.... this one maybe painted over soon
More of the closing
There are more photos of the rest of my pieces that were hung in the show, they are in other earlier posts.
