I love this paint. Sparkles and silver and gold. Amazing. I wish the photos would show ALL of the sparkly glitteryness, but I tried scanning and photographing in all different lights, with every single setting on my camera, and this was the best that I could do.So…. I guess you’ll have to come to Vista Lights and see them for yourself ~ I’ll be at The Gallery at DuPre. I wish I was going to be there in this dress, (or maybe this onethis ring, this coat, and these shoes (or maybe these!) 
P.S. visit me on Facebook! I’m going to be running some great sales soon, and you can be the first to hear about them!

I love this color.
Dear Golden  has so many pretty colors in her shop right now, this gorgous blue-green being one of them. I couldn’t resist a little series. The top two are 8×10, the third one down is 11×14, and the bottom one is 16×20. Perfect for hanging together in a bedroom, office, or laundry room?

In an acrylic mood….

Filed under: acrylic painting, adelaide homesewn, charcoal and watercolor, dear golden — laurenmaurerartworks @ 4:24 pm
I’ve done these two dresses before, actually, probably more than once, but always in watercolor with either charcoal or ink. I did these two in acrylic on 24″x36″ canvas (that is pretty big for me!). I did not think that I’d like them as much in this medium, but I think that I might! What do you think? The green peony dress is from the shop of Adelaide Homesewn, and the Prussian Blue dress is from the shop of Dear Golden
And…. since I feel like I’ve gone all girly and neglected all my guy friends out there, a Pumpkinseed Fish, one of many South Carolina Freshwater Fish! 
All in acrylic, since I’ve been in that kind of mood lately! Now, off to get ready for California for a girl’s weekend!

 I am in love with Dear Golden’s gorgeous vintage, and I am so happy to have painted these for Lauren, from her personal favorites! If you haven’t already,  pop over and see what her shop has to offer! But if you want to buy everything you see, don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Vintage Dresses… Charcoal and Watercolor

Filed under: charcoal and watercolor, dear golden, dresses, etsy, watercolor painting — laurenmaurerartworks @ 11:04 pm

 I have a thing for vintage dresses. Lauren, of Dear Golden was nice enough to let me use the photographs of the gorgeous dresses that she’s got in her Etsy shop to paint! I painted them with charcoal and watercolor on 300lb Arches cold press, and I think I may do them again in acrylic, and pen and watercolor on 140lb is in the works… I love the simplicity of the photographs that she takes, and think that maybe a series of paintings of dresses would be nice for a bedroom, maybe?
