December Happenings!

I think it's time for an update! There have been so many exciting things going on at Alisa Nelson Studio!

  • Due to increasing interest & a growing waitlist, I am opening a 4th class, beginning in January! The new class time will be Thursdays, 4:15-5:15. Click on the "Art Lessons" tab above for all the details! My other three classes are currently full & wait list only.
  • My Etsy shop is open & I recently added many new paintings -- go take a look! alisanelsonstudio.etsy.com screen-shot-2016-12-08-at-9-26-06-am
  • Andy & I hosted my first art show last week! I have learned that I work best with deadlines, so it was an exciting challenge to complete so many paintings for my show! I am enjoying working with bold color & experimenting with materials - my new favorites are aquabord, liquid gold leaf & wood panels. Combining realistic elements and abstract elements in the same paintings has become a favorite of mine - trees, lettering, movement of color with spraying & drips  - more of these things on the way! It's a joy to be finding my voice as an artist - I'm sure I will continue to discover & change & grow more and more as I take the time to paint each day. Being a creative is such a discipline - painting even when I don't feel like painting - this is a thing! Van Gogh once said, "If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced." I have found this to be SO true. Thank you for joining me on my creative journey!
