I'm a returned Peace Corps Volunteer, atelier-trained painter, and art instructor. I primarily focus on figurative and still life paintings but dabble in plein air from time to time.
When I'm not painting, I backpack, hike, and practice duo aerial silks with my partner.
Periodically I write little articles about my setup and I just finished one on "the how and why" of my painting palette. If you're curious, check it out at https://trevortaylor.net/ultimate-diy-ergonomic-vertical-palette/
are you painting? sometimes it is helpful to think of light as a bouncing ball that comes in and out of the view. it hits things and goes off in angles. there's a rhythm to it! #mastoart
Let no one tell you the arts are frivolous or unnecessary. They are the highest and most profound expression of our humanity. A life well lived has creativity and beauty at its heart.
The image is "Self-portrait in a Straw Hat" by Elisabeth-Louise Vigée-Lebrun (after 1782).
Here's a little peek behind the curtain of my art making process. I'm starting a new triptych (28 sq ft of paintings!) and step one is gluing backer boards to my panels. I'd have never guessed, starting out, that power tools would be a part of my process...or that I'd need so many clamps! #artprocess #art
Hey so sales are kinda bad this month, at this rate I won't be able to pay my bills (like rent, or food for the creature I accidentally summoned)
If you like my art and want to help you can either:
- check out my shop https://anaisfae.art/shop
- toss me a coin https://ko-fi.com/anaisfae
- just boost this
Thanks a lot!
