New Artwork for the New Year

Well, it's back to the grind.

Holidays are over and vacation has officially ended.
It's time to get going and grooving in this New Year!

I had a chance to spend some lovely alone time on Floor 24 [my studio] to paint...
paint... and oh yes, PAINT!

I was inspired a few weeks ago by the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid, to create some pieces I blogged about here. These pieces featured today were inspired by the brilliant sky. I have such an amazing view from Floor 24. It's impressive to see how brilliantly blue and randomly gentle the sky and clouds can become in a matter of minutes.

I loved the look of these pieces so much, that I decided to update a spot in my master bedroom with a new piece. So, I got to work right away.... deciding to utilize neutrals to help create a calming space.

We have ordered a new sofa for our room. My hope is, it will become my space to have a quiet time.... read.... plan the day... enjoy a cup of tea. To just relax and be alone. Currently, we have a chair with a coffee table. But, the chair isn't comfortable and the set up isn't optimized for such previously stated desires. It's really just wasted stuff and space at this moment. We ordered a studio-sized sofa in an oatmeal color. I am SO excited! I will share with y'all once everything has come together.

Here is the piece I painted to go on a wall perpendicular to where the sofa will be placed.

It's really beautiful to look at in the mornings.
I am pleased with how it turned out!

I shared this shot on my instagram page of it installed.

I then kept with the neutral palette and created these other two pieces.
La Isla Bonita has a gold shimmer throughout the piece. I love how it flows in and out with the white.
I can't really capture the sheen in a photo... but, trust me.... it's there!

So... back to the grind!
I'm excited that I am getting back.... Into the Groove.
Cuz, for me, it's not a grind. It's simply DIVINE!
