Took me a while to compose this still life and originally it was going to include an avocado but I replaced that element with the cup and saucer. Avocado another day.

I referenced a photo by @my_secret_dream2 for this work.

Who knows how long I've loved you
You know I love you still
Will I wait a lonely lifetime
If you want me to, I will

This has been my teaching/demo canvas for a person who has been learning to paint with me via private sessions. I finished it today and will be donating it to Santa Ana's Deli Center, a non-profit community-based organization that seeks to advance self-sufficiency through sustainable programs in health, education, financial stability and community engagement. If you want a chance to win this work, you'll need to attend their upcoming Fundraiser event on November 17th. Tickets can be purchased here.

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

Today, I worked with a live model (beautiful Lily) who came to sit and hold a gaze for three hours (with breaks in between) for portraiture work in the studio. What a treat.

I referenced a Modigiliani painting for this work. Like all my free motion stitched works on fabric, I never pre-draw before I stitch. It's a free process where I look at the reference while sewing.

Comes in an 8-inch diameter wooden embroidery hoop, ready to hang.

Ukulele Party :: November 5th


Uke

Have you wanted to learn the basics of how to play the ukulele? Well, I'm still a beginner myself but what I know I'm happy to teach. So grab your ukulele (smallest soprano size ... not the concert or tenor or baritone sizes) and join me on November 5th at 2PM. I'll show you how to tune the ukulele, how to play a handful of basic chords and with those basic chords, how to play and sing a song or two. I'll also show you how I painted my ukulele and provide paint and brushes and everything else for you to use to also paint your uke if you want to.

To participate, please:

  • RSVP via email at jenny@crescendoh.com
  • Bring with you a screenshot receipt of a $50+ donation to a helping organization providing aid to victims of recent disasters
  • Bring with you a canned food item (to be collected and donated to a local food bank)

PS: If you don't have a ukulele but want to participate, email me and I'll send you a link to one you could order via Amazon.

I decided to paint on a different substrate today: a linen board. I really enjoyed it. Not as slick as a gessobord, not as grippy as paper. And what is it about how everything becomes cuter when it's mini?
