On March 25th, I will be demonstrating my pointillism painting style to the Phoenix Artists Guild as their guest artist. I’m thrilled to have this opportunity. They are such a talented group. I plan to include a few artist members to dab on canvas via various rhythmic musical styles.
Should be fun. http://www.phoenixartistsguild.com/meetings.htm

Just Add Vodka
Who knew painting glassware could be so complicated and backbreaking? I decided to try dabbing my dots on new barware to compliment my “Drink Series” of pointillism paintings. I had no idea just how time consuming it would become once I started painting all the individual colors and planning sets. However, now that I have finished the last step of baking them so that they will be dishwasher safe, I’m feeling much better about the whole operation.
Tequila Shots Anyone?
I will be selling these originals at the upcoming Artists of the Superstitions 6th Annual Studio Tour at the base of the Superstition Mountains in Apache Junction, AZ. on the weekend of Novemebr 3-4th.
You can print a map of the many artists’ studios at http://artistsofthesuperstions.com/Tour_map_2012.pdf
Along with the various designs of all kinds of barware, I will be selling original pointillism paintings, framed miniature prints, & T-shirts of my painting images. You will surely find a unique holiday gift from my collections or the wonderful artwork of the other artists at our studio location: KimmBerly Ioane’s Raku Sculptures & Vessels, Lori Berry’s Fused Glassworks & Jewelry, and Diane Haugen’s Gourd Art. Our Studio is #3 on the Apache Junction Map.
Perfect for Wine Coolers
It’s quite the drive to see all the studios but well worth as this year the tour has many more incredible artists than before. And, if you should come to Studio #3, we will serve you a yummy Mimosa or a hot cup of tea and snacks.
I hope to see many of you there.

Do you have a favorite cocktail or beverage? If so, let me know and it could be the next piece created in my “Drink Series”.
These huge modern pointillism paintings are unique to earlier works by utilizing larger brushes thus creating enlarged 2 inch dab sizes. Each painting is 48 x 48 inches and designed for those dramatic kitchens, dining rooms, & living room spaces, or hip restaurants and imbibing establishments.
The first of the series is called More Wine? Makes you want to get out the corkscrew, right?

This Mahala Monday, the restaurant/bar will give ten percent of all proceeds to this nonprofit arts organization. Why not grab a few friends and come to downtown Phoenix for drinks, dinner, or both! I would love to see you and you would be supporting a great cause.

Jake & Trike
When I started this portrait, it was a straightforward shot of this little boy. I knew I wanted to add some interest to the background. I asked the mom, “What’s his favorite toy?” And the Red Flyer Tricycle was her quick reply. “Great! It would be perfect! Send a picture!”
Remember your first tricycle? I wish I could! The tricycle is typically our first venture on wheels independently. So, it’s a very important step in the mind of a child.
The portrait’s style of painting is a modern pointillism of circular dabs mixed with some dark identifying lines surrounding the figures. The size is 22 x 30 x .75 inches.
I used musical rhythms to keep the dabbing process going without thought. I found that James Brown Music is the best for dabbing! So I rocked out in the studio for this one! I was making some moves I didn’t know I had and singing at the top of my lungs! My husband would stop by the studio door every now and then and say, “Are you listening to that again?”, shaking his head. I must have listened to that CD at least a hundred times!
I feel nice! Da da da da da da da! Like sugar & spice! Da da da da da da da! So nice! So Nice! I got you! James Brown
And today, it feel’s good to get the portrait shipped to it’s new home. Hope the kid likes it when he’s a teenager….. Da da da da da da da!
