I have been busy developing a new technique I've learned from Katie Kendrick. I love using charcoal and smearing it around to create new images in faces. I'm working on creating my art to flow more, and not be so rigid. My color palette still remains colorful and bright.

Here is my latest in my Etsy shop. It's a painting and combined journaling...I'm really enjoying Instagram these days, where I can just quickly post photos. My sign in name is tararossstudios, in case you are interested. I'm also thinking of turning this into a fabric printing where I can make a fabric journal out of the print.

I've been creating in an older style I did many years ago. I kind of like it and it is refreshing to me to do something different. I also like having a style all my own. I see so many people copy others work. In some way that is how we get better as artists. When I feel like it all looks the same, I change it up a bit.

I call this work, "Tribe". I like how some of the faces are filled in and some are not. This piece is about angels among us and it is in my shop over at Etsy. I'll be painting, and painting this week, and painting some more. Perhaps I will even buy some new art supplies! Cheers! Tara

I finished this great portrait wall hanging a couple of days ago. It was really fun to make each face. It measures 24 x 24 inches and is on heavy duc canvas. I'm hoping to make another one when this one sells and keep one for myself. Have a great week.
