The last two years I have been blesssed with great support in starting this business, and sort of flying by the seat of my pants with figuring out how to balance an outside career, 2 daughters, a husband, and painting. TinkerDot Designs all started and is still primarily based on custom orders, which I LOVE, however, I have also realized that it leaves little time for me to spread my wings and create the art I really want to create and to really play with different techniques, textures, etc. ...sort of explore myself as an artist.
So, be prepared for a few changes in 2010!!! :) (I'm also telling myself this...) Nothing changing with the things I offer as of this moment...but soon.
One thing I am going to try this year is a few gallery shows. In preparation for these shows, I am creating some NEW pieces. I am showing you a sneak preview of one of my newest.
While these pics aren't the best (my photog sister isn't in town until next weekend...eek!), the mixed media, busy type of art you see here is EXACTLY the kind of art that makes me want to paint everyday.
While this canvas only touches the surface of what I plan to explore, I hope you love it.
I am hoping and praying that my fans will support me as I continue to venture toward a more mixed-media collage type art. My art will be directed toward all ages as well as lots of 'kid-oriented' art still. I will strive to create art that has a positive, inspirational and fun message. I want to create art that you really want to stare at...that you want to touch...that leaves you inspired and smiling.
Thank you, again, for your support. I hope you love this new style. I CANNOT wait to show you what else I have up my sleeve!!!!!! :)
*ps..this canvas will be at the Leon & Lulu show on Feb. 28th and March 2nd.* I will let you know if I will be creating more :)
