More Commissioned Art

The only thing I love more than color is a client who loves color. This particular client wanted an abstract piece that would add some joie de vivre to her earth tone living space. I would say we more than accomplished that goal. This painting was so much fun to do!

Sometimes it’s like saying good bye to an old friend so we had our picture taken!

Have I said lately how much I love my job?

Always grateful.

Color Quiz

I have found a compelling combination of my fascination with color and my psychology degree in this fun little color quiz.

Both times that I have taken it, the results were eerily accurate. Have fun finding out what your color choices say about you. We won’t judge! Color quiz here

More Color

Recently, a friend asked me what my favorite color is.  We were trying to figure out if I am water, fire, earth or wind but that’s a subject for another post.

My answer was, “all of them!”.  I love color.  I just do. The more the merrier!  It makes me giddy when I see a little color party going on.

These images are from my foray away from the paint store and into the fabric store where a lot of little color parties were going on.

I don’t know what this stuff is called but isn’t it pretty?

I have a couple of possessions that I love dearly – first of all because they were both given to me by my precious 19 year old baby girl but also because they are full of color.  She knows me well.

The first is a book mark she made for me when she was about 15.

I love the pattern and especially the combination of colors.

The other is a winter scarf that she brought back from a trip she took.

Don’t get me wrong.  I love black and white.  And I do think it is possible to come up with the wrong combination of colors even though I can’t think of one right now!  Or maybe ever!

There you have it.  I’m hard pressed to come up with one color to declare my very favorite.  So from now on I’m going to ask people, “What is your favorite color combination?”

All the colors!

All the colors!

So? What is your favorite color combination?

Party room!

There is no doubt that the message this room conveys is “fun”!  It is a different spin on girly.


The chevron pattern of the pillows is reflected in the color band on the walls.


A little black chandelier gives some sparkle to the bold lines and complementary patterns.

A desk for studying and a patterned reading chair add to the interest and functionality of this visually stunning room.

Patterns like this are some of my favorite things to paint.  The possibilities are endless.

Which room in your house could use a little fun?
