Hi everyone…You may have noticed that I now do Home Portraits, one of the ways I am using my art to honor and celebrate family traditions and stories. I will have a few samples at my Open Studio this weekend for you to see. The great thing about paint is I can make your flowers look bright, paint your house the color you really want it to be…or keep your house just the way it is. It’s up to you…it’s YOUR story! How about ordering one for your mother? Or purchase a gift certificate so she can commission a home or recipe painting for herself.
Today, I’d like to introduce you to my friend Jane Ferguson who will be one of the 14 artists showing with me this weekend at site 256 during Silicon Valley Open Studios. Jane also knows a bit about making flowers bright. Her joyful personality comes alive in every work she does! In Jane’s own words:
“In creating my paintings I like to use bold colours and a variety of mediums. My goal is to achieve interesting designs in my work and move away from photo realism. My paintings are more about the use of paint and colour than actually depicting the subject matter. I enjoy experimenting with new mediums and techniques and painting on different surfaces. I want to encourage viewers of my art to find their own imagery with in the pieces. The constant experimental and learning process in Art is what I find so addictive and keeps me loving what I do.”
