New work this year

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.

My latest

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.

Some of my new work

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.

My previous work

I am having reflection on creating and revisiting my older work. My new work is about adding more depth to my style. It is fun to change it up a bit! I have some new work in my etsy store, please visit and say Hi.

Angels among us

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

Wall Hanging

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.

I love mermaids and it is a beautiful day to paint today. She is finished and measures 8 x 10. She's in my shop now.

What I've been up to

I've been busy painting again. I love creating sweet girls with bunny slippers and pigtails. You can find most of my latest work in my etsy shop. Now that I'm done traveling, well for the most part anyway, I hope to be creating a lot more. My next project is creating faces on muslin squares and sewing them together for a large wall hanging. Stay tuned. I look forward to your comments. Cheers!
