Painting SOLD :), the one in the upper left corner, happy happy happy!
I painted it in a set of two during an interview for TV8 Vail, and titled Don’t Step On Me, as the reporter had a little accident with it.
The wall is from Sticky Fingers Cafe, a cozy little artsy cafe in Minturn, Vail Valley, where I’m showing right now. Go check them out, their food and drinks are amazing and they show a lot of great art that you can’t see anywhere else, such as pieces by Gel Clemmer Surf Art (painting to the left).
The second aspen tree painting I ever did. It is rough with a perspective where you can’t really tell where the trees are and where the space is around those trees. I only used white black and yellow to get this effect. I also experimented with some spray paint on this painting, which I used on a few of the dots. The big dot in the middle towards the top is one of my favorite parts of any painting - I accidentally spraid too hard, that formed this big dot, the dot started dripping down. All in a way that made it look like a spider, a dominant shape in the piece, and that’s how some of my most used techniques often come to see the light of day - through experimenting and mistakes:)

The first painting I ever sold was very well liked and received, and I was later asked to make a commission piece based off of it. I have painted a number of commission paintings since, which I love doing since recreating an old piece is a very enjoyable process.
The photo on top is the full piece, the three below are close-ups.

I posted about the making of of this painting earlier and this is the photo of the finished piece. I’ve asked instafriends for opinions when I was in the final stage of painting and got some good good feedback. Large as it is and fun to paint as it was, it’s one of my FAVORITE of everything I’ve ever made.
It was a commission piece that I just dropped of at the buyer’s house this Sunday. Due to it’s size and custom colors that were to match the interior, it is now the most expensive painting I ever sold - $450. Just a year ago my highest sale was half that, and I’m real real happy about this recent recognition:)
I love this painting because I painted it at a music festival at Red Rocks in Colorado. I had a dream for a year of being one of the artists at the festival so I hounted them for all that time asking if I could. I ended up getting VIP artist bands for me and my boyfriend then and we were treated like kings the whole festival! Plus, I got to paint on stage with some of my favorite musicians, and one of the bands started watching me paint after their set. I turned around and looked shocked as they said, “we love your work.” I had tears in my eyes and I over-excitedly shouted back, “I love YOU guys!!” It was one of my greatest moments in history :)

Another painting that now dwells at my parents’ house. I used a shiney copper paint in this one and used a somewhat unusual color sheme compared to what I normally do. I also made only three, large and more structured trees in this one with vey solid branches which give this painting a very unique look and feel.

Another one of my favorite paintings of all time:). This was the first painting where I used the bottle of paint to drip very solid, thick drops of paint at the very end. I also love the colors and the fact that I used a pale pink for the trees, but don’t really notice that because it blends so well with the other colors of the painting. In my eyes the colors turned out beautiful.
