Finished and Drying on the Easel

The new painting is finished and drying on the easel. I'm going to need to move it in order to light it better for a proper photograph. Maybe in a day or two. That will give me time to think of a title. Sometimes titles come easily to me and sometimes not.

My husband, Craig, and I posing in front of Calm Embrace. Craig is so extremely helpful to me. He made it possible for me to transport this large painting from the studio to the gallery. Muscles!

Come this Saturday: 4 X 4 Group Show Opening


I'm so excited about this exhibition. It's the first invitational show that I've been asked to be in. That's a big deal. Having my paintings displayed along with the extraordinary work of the other three artists is an honor. I had a private sneak peek of the show yesterday and can just say, "Wow"! It looks amazing. I so hope you can come see it.

Twenty-two of my paintings will be exhibited in this show, which features four Metro-Detroit based artists: Candy Law, Toby Millman, Rachel Gervais, and me. The exhibit will highlight four mediums -– ceramics, printmaking, encaustic and painting. Each work in this exhibit will demonstrate the formal and technical skills of each medium as well as distinct styles and imagery of each artist.

Studio Claustrophobia

I'm feeling cramped for space in the studio. It will look totally the opposite after I deliver my artwork to Paint Creek Center for the Arts ten days from now. I'm looking forward to seeing my work displayed with that of the other three artists in the "4 x 4" group exhibition.

Grateful, oil on stretched canvas, 48 x 24 x 1.5 inches

Patrice Erickson, Grateful, oil on stretched canvas, 48 x 24 x 1.5 inches

Fresh off the easel! So many things come to mind when I ask myself, "What am I grateful for?". My first response is that I had a good healthy day without any major aches and pains to prevent me from working on this today. How about you? What are you grateful for?

Patrice Erickson, Calm Embrace, oil on stretched canvas, 60 x 60 x 1.5 inches

Here's a new large painting that I finished today. It's almost as tall as I am. I'm enjoying sitting in front of it while doing deep yoga breaths. Feeling totally calm, thus the title.
