Fur Rendezvous Alaska, Art work 2nd place

Fur Rendezvous is over for 2013, and what a week it was! There were activities all over town, and our Anchorage Senior Center was one of the most active. One of those activities was the Art Snow which lasted a week and I am thrilled to say that I took second place in the oil and acrylic division. My paintings were titled “Cooking Lessons” which took the ribbon, and “Going Home” one of my personal favorites. When the show was over, we had a Meet the Artist day when people could meet and talk with the artists. Great food and Dessert was served. We all had a great time!

Not only did they have the art contest at the center, they also had a seafood buffet, Pioneer Dinner Stories, clothing contests, stamp show, scale model exhibition, swap and shop, and much more. I think it must be the busiest week of the year and one of the most fun!

You can view the painting “Going Home” in progress on my website www.mymagicbrushes.com this week. Just click on the Sneak Peek page. It’s something fun I do so that people can follow my artwork step by step.

Have a blessed day! Yovette

Sneak Peek Painting #15 Multnomah Falls

This Painting was so much fun! It is simply titled “Multnomah Falls”. I was recently in Oregon, and was able to visit the Falls. What an outstanding place! It is located along the Columbia Gorge River just outside of Portland. It is so interesting to view all the paintings there, eat ice cream, or climb to the top of  Multnomah falls. No, I did not climb up there, but other people were doing so. 

There is lush green all around in the summer, and lots of ice in the winter. There is a wide variety of vegetation and flowers. Multnomah Falls is amazing, especially when you are standing down below and looking up. Or, you can stand in the middle on the bridge and view Multnomah Falls both up and down. It is a must see if you are ever in Oregon.

Blessings and Happy Holidays, Yovette

Sneak Peek Painting #14 Buffalo on the Point

Sneak Peek #14, Buffalo on the Point was a fun painting to do because it was not ordinary. It was not painted on a canvas, it was done on a rock. The finished painting is sitting in my greenhouse in Alaska, a perfect place for it! 

The idea come from being at our summer cabin, and watching the buffalo come down the hills to give birth to their young. They do this every spring and then head back up to the mountains in the fall. There are usually around 50 or more of them.

This painting is done in acrylic, and not for sale. It is just for your viewing pleasure.

Sneak Peek #13 “Mexican Courtyard”

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Sneak Peek #13 called Mexican Courtyard is now completed. It was a lot of fun to do this painting. To me, Mexico has always been such an interesting place. My sister and I had the opportunity to visit there many years ago, and we just loved it. There is a beauty there that is different from other places.

Mexican Courtyard was inspired by my good friend Angel. He likes pottery, so I wanted to see if I could incorporate that into something unusual. I found the adobe wall a most interesting subject to paint. Seems like adobe almost always has cracks and pieces falling out of it. I would like to do more of the Mexican courtyard type of paintings in the future. I have some new ideas that I am going to play with.

Sneak Peek #12 “Flamenco Dancer”

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Sneak Peek #12 has completed. The title is: “Flamenco Dancer”. This painting was a lot of fun for me because it was the first time I have ever painted a person.

 Now, I would like to try many more people. This painting was inspired by my sister, also an artist,  https://sites.google.com/site/emajique/home when I went to visit her last summer. Unlike a landscape painting, one has to be so precise with people. I enjoyed the Flamenco Dancer challenge. I am not sure what my next project is going to be, I am searching now. Sometimes it takes a long time to find just the right thing that inspires you. So I will be back when I have something new. Meantime…

Sneak Peek #11 “Aurora Borealis”

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I have just completed Sneak Peek #11 titled “Aurora Borealis”  This is always a fun painting to do because the scenery and colors are forever changing.

The Aurora Borealis is one of Alaska’s most beautiful night time experiences, and visitors come from all over the world just to view this spectacular site. The Aurora Borealis is best viewed in winter time close to Fairbanks, but can be seen in many different areas. We hope to go to Fairbanks this winter and watch these gorgeous dancing lights in person.

Sneak Peek #10 “I See You”

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My 10th Sneak Peek Painting called “I See You” is complete!

I had so much fun doing this painting. It was a combination of several photos that I used parts of, and also a lot of my own creativity. I was pleased that this Sneak Peek painting took 2nd place in the Kenny Lake Art Fair Contest this year for the Acrylic division.

When I finish a painting I usually send out over 100 notices to family and friends. Because this is so time consuming, I would ask that if you are interested in continuing to view and read about the painting that I am doing, that you either visit my website: http://www.mymagicbrushes.com

Or sign up for my blog at: https://mymagicbrushes.wordpress.com and you will get a notification when I do something new.

Please enjoy Sneak Peek #10, “I See You” For all of you that have already signed up for my blog, I thank you for your interest in following me.

Blessing and have a wonderful day.

Yovette
