Ready to Hang
This charming painting will bring a touch of whimsy and dreaminess to any room it hangs it. I like to imagine these two are taking the day off from their circus performances to wander and relax in the forest.
I've spent some time in Sweden and was very inspired by the birch forests and countryside there. That inspiration is what brought about the forest and bear in this painting.
This painting is acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas. The sides of the canvas are painted and it's ready to hang. The painting is finished with a water-based varnish. This deepens the colors and provides UV protection, keeping the colors vibrant and rich for many years to come.
I am a painter, drawer, bunny mother and adorer of glitter and spice and everything nice. My vices include wandering caravans, campfires and guitars, old stuff, and all things fantastical. I adore vintage patterns and illustration art, Art Nouveau and the style of the Fauvists. All of this inspires what I create.My art is my way down the rabbit hole and I would like to bring the viewer with me along for a visit. My painting technique is intuitive and spontaneous. This is why I prefer using acrylic. The quicker drying time allows me more room to experiment. I love an unexpected color in an unexpected place. Most of my paintings are finished with an oil-based varnish which deepens the colors and protects the vibrancy. I am a self-taught artist born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Like most born with that drive to create I have been making art my whole life. I started taking painting seriously about 15 years ago and haven’t stopped since. I hope you enjoy my work!
