Loved this classic VW beetle! Fun shapes and reflections - and a great color to work with. I have been enjoying going to car shows and cruise nights - more car paintings will probably be in the future.
Just because it looks cute with the last one - thought it would make a good display to have a pair (and they are fun to paint too!) I will have this cupcake pair, along with cupcake notecards - and lots of other fu things - at the Haverhill Art Market this weekend, Saturday July 16, 12-5pm at 90 Washington Street in Haverhill. I will be working on a small sign painting during the Market and selling some of my paintings and prints. Hope you can stop by if you are local!
It always seems like it is time to do another Hilltop painting!
The Hilltop seems to be one of my most in-demand images. I suspect that is because it was such a well-loved place that was around for so long - and then fairly recently closed their doors for good. At every show I attend with one of my Hilltop pieces, I hear so many stories about the special family get-togethers that were held there....the special dinners, birthdays, anniversaries, family reunions, rehearsal dinners, etc. - everyone seems to have a Hilltop memory. Not too many restaurants have such a long history of making memories for so many people!
This is also why I love this series of local signs and buildings that I have been working on. Not only are they fun to paint, but I really enjoy hearing the stories that people share, their memories connected to these places, the connections that people have to these places.
I do these pieces by commission as well- so let me know if there is a special place you would like me to memorialize in a painting.
I am going to be leading a "Make Your Own Mini-Masterpiece" Workshop at the next Haverhill Art Market! It is geared mainly for kids to make mini painting for a Father's Day gift, but adults are welcome to come play, too.
The Haverhill Art Market is held monthly - and is a great place to meet local artists and buy their work. It is a fun and friendly environment and is definitely worth checking out.
The next Art Market is on June 18th, 12-5pm at 90 Washington Street in downtown Haverhill. More information about the monthly Art Market can be found on our Facebook page.
