My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.


Big 100 11-15

I stayed up until 4 am yesterday working on these paintings because everything is due on Friday because they are framing all the work for the show.  I don't think I have stayed up that late since I was last in Vegas like over a year ago.

This is the last of the still life- playing around with glass. and I wanted to play with the blues in the glass and the dark back ground..   Every time I do still life.. I start thinking about the Sound of Music- and that song.. "This are a few of my favorite things"... :)

8X8 oil on wood.
Information about the show:
The Big 100 is 100 artists doing 15 paintings each all for the set price of $50.  Cash and Carry Show.
December 2-4th 4pm-2 am at the Goodfoot.

That's a super late night, but the end result looks glorious!!

I can't imagine how tricky it is to give that look of glass, but you've captured it perfectly in your still life.

painting glass seems like it must be really hard ... your painting is terrific. i love the blues, too!

I love your still life work. Would love to see more!

-I recently stayed up 'til 2pm working on a quilt & was up again at 5 to go in to work. 3 hrs sleep. Mad me feel OOOOLD. Sometimes when you get really into something you just can't stop.

E - seriously these are so good, I was just thinking about your work for Big 100 last year and how much your painting has developed in a year. I'm so proud of how far you have come, I just wish I could be there this year :)
