I put this piece on Facebook and asked my community to help me name this. There were over 50 responses and ideas. It was hard to choose the best name. As I thought about the story behind starting this piece I chose the name “Watching You” appropiately named by Amy Caplin. Funny thing is my very first piece of art that I purchased was purchased from Amy. It was early 1999 or 2000. That painting still hangs in my living room almost 22 years later.
The cool thing about asking my community for help is in a series of many faces to be painted over the next few months I now have a full wheelhouse of name ideas.
The story about this piece. I have 8 kids. Five of mine and three of his. I love them all in their own unique way. They are all hardworking, living out their adult lives and letting me in. Social Media allows me to be watching their stories unfold. Thier shares are something I watch. I look forward to seeing. I have since learned that my 89 year old dad watches my storeis on IG. He recently told me it has been fun to see the silly things I share. “You are something Elizabeth” is what he said. “I enjoy watching you.” And having already chosen the name for this piece it became even more perfect.
“Watching You”. It’s a different style for me. I love color as you can see through out my website. However I am also learning digitized art to adapt a painting to a new color pallet for clients as needed. It expands art in ways that artists can only dream of. I know this has been available for years to alter art, but as I am taking my art business to newer and higher heights I am learning to utilize the tools availabe.
I never in my wildest dreams, those mid-eighties years at the Art Institue of Seattle, could imagine what technology would bring to the art world. Yet here we are and what a wonderful thing it all is. Following are some digitized pieces from original arcyclic painting on canvas. I love that I can produce color series that fit the vibe of any room, home or wall.
I think I may hav already mentioned that this is not my typical style. Yet it has received lots of attention on my social sites. You can find this on my selling page and order the stock sizes or message me for a custom size and quote. I also offer wholesale to qualified retailers. Woohoo. Guess who is “Wacthing You”?
