New from the easel next door

Jes is busy working on pieces for The Light of Nebraska series. The framed landscape is a warm up piece. When you switch gears from one style of painting to another you also change palettes (the colors you paint with) . So it’s nice to do a warm up piece to get your color theory organized for the style of painting and the subject. I like to take a creative break- Jes calls it yummy baked goods. 😉 Stay on the Awiya side of life my creatives!



Spring Spirit

Here’s where I am at with this painting. Currently framed & drying. the Awiya Project is donating this piece to a Massage studio in Florida that does amazing work.


On my easel


This current work in progress is for the From Palette to Canvas: The Light of Nebraska series. This developing landscape is from York county Nebraska. Will keep you updated as it progresses along.
