About a week ago I learned that my painting, The Joy of Design LIII, acrylic on canvas, 6 X 6 in., will be included in a book to be published by Jen Tough Gallery later this year. This book, titled 'Fun Size', will include a variety of art by a variety of artists, all artwork up to 6 by 6 inches in size. I look very forward to seeing all the art in this book and feel lucky to be included!
Also, recently the exhibit by Nordic 5 Arts titled 'Water' at the Vesterheim Museum in Decorah, Iowa, was extended until June 13, 2021. I am participating in this exhibition with my painting titled 'Waves and Swirls'. You can learn more at https://vesterheim.org/exhibit/water-contemporary-art/ which gives the details in regard to the theme and participating artists and also has images of all the artwork in this exhibit. You can also access this museum site from my 'About' page under 'Recent Exhibits'. I recommend you take a look!
I have added some surface pattern designs on my Fine Art America/Pixels website. These are titled Forming New Patterns 1 and 2 and 3 and 4, altogether four color variations on an abstract nature forms inspired theme.
I recently signed up on Twitter and Instagram. I am a total novice to these, but realize that they play a role that I should not overlook. If you would like me to follow you on either or both, give me your address(es), please. Mine are @HelenaTiainen3 on Twitter and @HelenaTiainenArt on Instagram. I am yet to post anything on the latter, since these posts need to be handled by phone and not computer, which is what I mainly use. I must admit that I am not a big time smart phone user at this point but make up for it in emails.
Later today I am planning on painting with acrylics and will post the works when I feel they are done or otherwise feel like posting them in progress, likely in coming blogs, if I choose to do this. I am currently working on several paintings in a variety of sizes.
Tell me, would you be interested in seeing photos of my works in progress or would you rather see them when they are completed? What is your personal preference?
