Here's a recent commission I finished up for a sweet friend and client. It's huuuuuuge! I love it when I get to work big. This one is 48" x 48" and is going on a gorgeous huge tall wall! Large abstract paintings are really great ways to make a room come together and add that pop of yum to a space!!
The May/ June commission list is filling up. Shoot me an email to talk ideas and get on the list!
How is it March already??? 2018 is flying by! I wanted to give y'all a fun happy - a little sneak peek from my new Spring collection while we're waiting on Spring to get its butt here! This is Jungle Juice, a tangy orange beauty that will soon be released later this month! Until then, enjoy this lil' digital download for your phone wallpaper!
This collection is all about bold, color and huge statement making artwork. I wanted to go big or go home with this collection and I think I nailed it! All of these pieces are oil on paper and are ready to be framed! I'm excited to share the Fall 2017 Large Scale Collection with you! Collection available for purchase through my website.
The new paper series is almost here! The collection releases THIS WEEK on Thursday July 27 !!
I get a lot of questions about how to frame works on paper and I've put together an idea board for you for you to see how I envision these pieces framed! Framing is a really big deal. It can increase the value of a piece by how well the framing sets a piece off and shows off its beauty!
So... on to the beautiful inspiration images! I mocked up how several pieces from the new collection would look like in some favorite frames and spaces to give you some inspiration on how to frame them up!
This is one killer example of how I see these new big pieces framed! I'm just dying over the lucite box that I envision framing out this beauty, "Build a Ladder to the Stars" 48" x48" oil on paper. Image Inspiration source:
I love, love, love this huge white frame/ mat combo to set off this paper piece. "Magic in Me" 22" x 22" oil on paper is set off by a gigantic mat and I just can't get enough of this! Inspiration source
Another really great example of a thin frame with a huge ole mat to set off the artwork! Inspiration source

I've released a new series of blues for spring!! It's a new color palette and a new concept for me to make myself stay with one dominant color for a whole series instead of painting the rainbow. Don't worry, I'm already working on other palettes for other series. I haven't mono-chromed this studio just yet :). Cedar approves of all of these pieces
