Sad news, folks. I was emailing Michelle Armas (my all-time favorite artist) about commissioning a painting...had it all worked out to pay in small installments, etc....then summer tuition took a huge dent out of my savings and I had to face facts that I'm way too broke to buy one of her beautiful pieces. However, if someday I do commission a painting....these are the pics I would send her as inspiration.
First up, my favorites of her paintings:
"Rosalia." My all-time favorite. I love the movement and the array of colors and the drips and the use of white.
Jenny from MFAMB commissioned this lovely. I love the mellow colors, the way it looks almost floral with a watercolor-esque spot of green, and the drips.
"Capri." I like the there's lots of movement and energy even though the color palate isn't very in-your-face
And now on to the interiors....
Lots of bright white space but also darker tones and lavender for interest.
Interesting color combo--I like that there are patterns and colors that I wouldn't think to put together, but it doesn't look over-the-top
