Elements of Nature 12 x 24 Acrylic
Experimental Titled Tourist Map
Title Waves of Insomnia
SOLD 20×20 Abstract Acrylic
…also Sunday Before Breakfast
This is the second painting named Sunday Before Breakfast. I didn’t remember using the title earlier but Sunday is the only day where there is no mail so I love Sunday morning. Because I run a small business from my home every morning I ship packages, Sunday is the exception. Online business runs primarily on the Poshmark app and includes my available artwork. http://www.poshfashionmews.com, to shop my artwork click the category on the left of my main page titled “Home” .
The painting in this post is both oil and acrylic paint on gallery stretched canvas 24×48. Its beautiful from a distance but also exquisitely beautiful in its detail up close.
Sunday Before Breakfast
Titled Sunday Before Breakfast because I woke up early on Sunday and this is the result. Impasto painting inspired by a trip to the farmers market.
36×24 oil on stretched canvas.

Good Dog Painting as Branding
I just ordered branded poly mailers for my Poshmark closet and incorporated artwork from my recently sold painting titled “Good Dog”. Can’t wait for them to arrive! I told in an earlier post of ordering branded shipping tape which also incorporated one of my paintings. I love the finished product and use the branded shipping tape whenever I can! I hope the mailers are just as fabulous!
SOLD – Good Dog
The Fashion Mews
I needed artwork for some promotional material for my business. I decided to use one of my paintings which will become branded shipping tape. Can’t wait for it to arrive.
Sold – Chalk Cat II, Commission for C
Almost dry and ready to varnish, couldn’t resist trying it in a frame.
Sold – Dimensionality in Compilation
I have a box of canvases that are paintings that I started but never finished. Every so often I like to go back to this box and revisit the forgotten “bones” of a previous work to see where a fresh perspective might take it. Here are a couple that I completed this week and uploaded to Fine Art America so they could be converted into textiles or larger, framed reprints.
With the close of 2017, I have to admit that the year for me was a mixed bag. While I could dwell for hours on all that went awry, like my fragrance allergies and my skin cancer diagnosis, I will instead focus on what an amazing year 2017 was for me as an artist!
By the close of 2017 I estimate that I sold over 25 paintings during the year, one of which was sold to a private collector in Australia. My debut in the land down under. We will see what 2018 brings, whatever that is, I’ll just keep swimming.
SOLD In Progress “My Country Tis of Thee”
A November rain on a dead potted plant. Exquisite. Prints and textiles on Fine Art America.

Playing with Images
Since I returned home from Duluth I’ve spent a considerable amount of time editing the photos I brought back with me. I took pictures of somewhat odd object that I felt drawn to and I’m glad I did. I love them as tonal framed artwork but they also look amazing when converted to fabric on throw pillows. The physical objects are almost indistinguishable among the more pronounced shapes and lines. The very antique settings in the photographs are transformed to images that appear very modern.
Lighthouse Beacon Photos
While visiting Split Rock Lighthouse I took several photos of the lighthouse beacon which was rotating in the upper most area of the tower. The beacon was casting a transparent shade of phthalo green and I thought it was beautiful. I finished editing 2 of the photos and paired them together as artwork in a bedroom. I’m totally smitten..

Mid Century Marie
I received a call mid-march from Heidi Schneider owner of La Petite Boutique, a downtown St. Cloud shop located in the Regency Plaza building. She invited me to display during the March 24th St. Cloud Art Crawl and I gladly accepted!
The Regency Plaza building is located directly across the street from the Paramount Theater and La Petite’s storefront faces an art gallery across the corridor. The location was fantastic and allowed me to set up a larger display. The store owner was a thoughtful, fantastic host who even purchased one of my paintings! It was the first time I was able to actually display a grouping of paintings rather than a few here and there. During the event I sold 6 paintings and in the days that followed 2 more paintings sold to customers who picked up my business card.
It was fun to answer questions and discuss my work with art lovers but with any successful event it also meant that I parted with some paintings that I treasured. The benefit of making the sales in person rather than online was knowing that the new owners of my artwork, treasured my paintings as much as I did.
Below are photos from the March 24th Art Crawl and also a photo of the painting Chalk Cat displayed with its new owner.
Man in the Moon
I started this painting ages ago but was never happy with it. I picked it back up a couple days ago and finally finished it. My grandchildren would be thrilled with the amount of finger painting that went into the final edits. Its title is Man in the Moon because in creating the moon I accidentally ended up with a face…which I decided to keep.
This work was made possible by a grant from the Five Wings Art Council with funds from the McKnight Foundation.
*SOLD* Petite Pear Paintings
Last year I tried painting on these small 4×4 canvas, most didn’t turn out and I ended up scraping the paint off. While at home on my “staycation” yesterday during a closet cleaning stint I found a box with the scraped canvas’. When I finished reassembling the closet I sat down to try it again a full year later. Loved every minute.

SOLD- Royalton Grain Elevator
I love old abandoned buildings. This one is in Royalton, Minnesota, a city I lived in for 7 years. After I started painting I photographed it knowing one day I would use it as the subject but I was stumped as to its execution. I didn’t want to do a traditional landscape. I decided to play with the scale of the building contrasted by the scale of the canvas to make it feel modern.
