My Art Merch wish

When I was a teenager, I took a photo of my painting, took it to the mall's dog's ears, and had it printed on a tshirt to give to my boyfriend. I guess I have always wanted to see my artwork on merchandise. I love to paint big and bold and fewer and fewer homes can house my larger size work. With my Art Merch, my art can enter people's lives as a iphone case or skin or hang out on your couch as a pillow. I am so happy to see my society6 shop grow. See! And I am getting a few likes along with sales. When my likes go up, I get more motivated and want to add more work and product. THANKS for fueling my creativity * blush*

Alla Prima

On exploring the Alla Prima method, I have always aimed to produce work that conveys spontaneity. It's not easy making something look just right and not over worked. I have discovered that I am a fairly fast painter, I think I often try to paint fast to capture the movement and freedom of Alla Prima. There is always the question of loose and quick vs. unfinished.

John Singer Sargent is my all time favourite painter who captures this sense of Alla Prima. I don't know how he actually paints, fast and free or meticulous and detailed, but his work always feels open and airy with the right amount of energy.

New beginnings

Our retail clothing store  Global Atomic Designs is now open at our new home 1144 Mainland Street. It has been months of long long hours of work, but it is definitely worth it seeing it today. After 15 years at the old location, the move was filled with mixed feelings. Just in time for Spring, we are excited to move forward. Besides all the aspects of moving and building the new store. I was kept very busy with all the branding materials from signage to flyers to business cards to social media.  I still have a few branding work to do, especially for the cafe. Now our coffee is pretty amazing, you just have to come and try one.

Now that the store is settling in, I can spend more time on my art. I sure missed it but one can only do so much at a time. I am feeling fresh ideas trying to burst out of my head. I have already added a few new products on my Society6 site since the well responses is very encouraging.

I will be working hard adding new products. So check in often,  right now there is also a free shipping promo on until Feb 10, so take advantage of it. Pass it on, tell your friends.
