Summer Nights, 13″ x 18″, acrylic and glaze 2014
So I am not off to the Javits Center in NYC for the weekend but my collaborative painting I created for Ellen Dorsch of Creative Women is. http://www.creativewomen.net/
We discussed the possibility of working on something together. I created this piece based on some photographs she gave me. The idea was that since this is a summer show for housewares and gifts evoking warmth and summertime in February would be a good idea. Ellen has graciously offered me the opportunity to gain some feedback from responses to the piece in her booth.
It was an interesting process for me working from a photograph. I am used to creating work based on what springs out of my own imagination. There was a different discipline that I both really appreciated and need to understand better if I want to expand my opportunities for more commissioned work. Isn’t it grand to learn more about our own creative brains?
Here’s the link to information about the trade show.
Love this Lisa , did you name it makes me think of summer in the hills by a stream.
