Inventory Reduction Sale

It’s been forever since I’ve posted on here. ouch.  Life is so very busy. And for the sake of my entire family, I’m losing my studio and gaining a patio. So, I have paintings that need to go.

Below are a few of the paintings that I need to sell. Sizes and prices on the captions (you might have to hover on a picture for the caption to come up).  If you might be interested in one, send me an email at emilymclemore@yahoo.com. If you are local, you can pick it up. If shipping is necessary, I will only charge actual shipping plus the cost of the box.

I’ve got more to sell, so maybe I’ll post again before next year!!

Another redo

Here is the original painting that I created as part of my course work with Leonid Afremov. I painted it as directed and required, but I didn’t love it.

In fact, I’ve looked at it a number of times over the last year or so and considered what I could do to fix it.

Well, I finally decided to just get rid of most of the red.

And here it is.

I have to say, I much prefer the piece now.  I like how the bold reds are just barely seen. They provide a depth to the blues and greens, but are not so over powering!

And now I can say that this piece is mine!

Finding my palette

Over the last couple of paintings, I feel like I have found my go to painting palette.  I really like the heavy use of greens, blues and yellows. Limiting the palette has actually opened up my paintings in a new and fresh way. My painting mentor Leonid Afremov uses EVERY color with lots of reds, and it totally works for him. But it didn’t work for me.  So get ready to see a lot of paintings without red!

An Acrylic Adventure

 

A few weeks ago I was asked to paint DURING a church service as part of a celebration of a woman who had served the church more than 30 years in our children’s preschool program. I was excited for the painting adventure, but since I really like working in oils, and oils don’t travel, I knew I would have to adapt to the environment and situation!

So, after a bit of trial and error and a few practices paintings. This is what I ended up with. I am happy with the painting. It is in acrylic, and acrylic is HARD to blend on a canvas as it dries so quickly when you are palette knife painting. The painting has lots and lots of layers in order to get a little depth to it. I worked with the painting some after the service as I wanted it to be a little more finished, but I didn’t do too much so that it would be true to the worship experience.

I really enjoyed the challenge, but I think if I do this again, I’ll find a way to transport the oils!Image

New paintings and new ventures

My newest painting from the weekend!  It was met with such fun comments and “likes” on facebook that I decided to force myself out of my comfort zone and offer reprints for sale.
