Surrounding myself with Art

I love having a house because having a house means I have walls!  And having walls means I can hang art!  Lots and lots of art!  My partner and I have some art hung up already, but not nearly enough.  We’ll have to have another art hanging spree this spring.

I think all the artwork that I have in my house really inspiring, so I thought it’d be fun to share them here piece by piece.

My BFF, Timm McKenny, gave me some paintings for my living room.  Here’s one of them:

Painting by Timm McKenny

It’s a decent sized painting  (2.5 x 4′ ish) and it was created with a loose painting style, which I love partly because it looks like it was painted with ease and partly because I rarely can paint this way.  The look of this piece feels casual and focused at the same time, sort of like Timm himself.  It’s nice having his work in my living room because he lives far away and I miss him.  If I can’t see Timm, at least I get to see his art!

Art makes me happy. And sleepy, apparently.

He gave me another painting that’s also in my living room. That one is a portrait and I ADORE it.  I’ll share that one later.

My Childhood Masterpiece

Apparently, I have loved rainbows my whole life.  I found this watercolor painting in a box of my grade school artwork.  I think I was maybe 7 years old when I created this piece of art.  I don’t really remember painting it, but I am not surprised.

Painting Studio Planking

With my new in-house photo setup next to my painting studio, there’s been an invasion of dressforms amongst my canvases.

Watercolor Wednesday pt. 2

The other week I posted about how I spent a whole day celebrating Watercolor Wednesday (which might be a thing I made up, but who cares).  I painted humans and animals, and I already posted the human paintings.  This week I’ll share the animals I painted.

They are quite anthropomorphic, but they are animals none-the-less.  A good friend of mine is really into foxes and friends, so he is collecting fox drawings from his friends to cover one of his apartment walls.  I painted these guys up and sent them his way.
