New Blog

Since I recently retired from painting pet portraits, I wanted to invite you to my new blog which is still about art but is not so focused on pet paintings.  I wanted a new blog as a symbol of this new direction I'm taking with my art.

So, without further ado, let me present the J Gibson Art Studio blog:

I'll still be discussing the various aspects of art and posting photos of my paintings but if you'd like to see some of my art in person, you can visit the following galleries:

The Artestry Hideaway
129 Middle Lane
Beaufort, North Carolina 28516

The Raleigh Street Gallery
120 West Raleigh Street
Siler City, North Carolina 27344

Hi Jan,
I am glad you wandered over from Sue Clinker's blog.
The geese - what can I say - I love painting them, and I suppose it shows. I find them fascinating and funny at the same time. The painting on the header actually won a prize, and was a favorite at the Federation of Canadian Artists gallery. I am known as the "goose lady". The gallery requested more geese, and I am happy to oblige.
As for acrylic - ACK!!! Those paper mache figures have been sitting for days to be finished. I hate the thought of going back into the acrylic.
Anyway, I am rambling. Thank you for visiting my blog!!

Hi Jan,
You were wondering "why" paper mache. A friend commissioned me to fabricate 5 "awesome boxes". She wanted animal themes, so these are what I made.
PS - and it is just so much fun to play with :)

Jan, thank you so much for writing. I quite like The Muses, too, and I am a harsh critic :) As for rest - as they say ... no rest for the wicked!!!
