The Windows of New York Part II - and Paint Party Friday......





Hi Everyone.....I am thrilled to share my latest piece in this super fun series all based on the Shop windows I saw on my trip to New York last week.....this window was so glam for me and I love the mosaic mirror pieces and that antique mirror hanging behind the red lipped lady with attitude.....This project is so much fun....take something you love and get inspired to create something new with a nod to the inspiration piece...Try this out next time you are out.....take a photo of something that caught your eye.....and then work with the colours and the art in the photo to come up with something new....it is so much fun!!!

To check out the first in my series you can head here.......Windows of New York Part I



I  also created this special painting for a new Mother.....She just got it as an early treat from me and she loves it...I always love to surprise people with art.....feeds the soul....

I am sharing this with all of my friends at Paint Party Friday this week....so if you need some inspiration....pop by and check out everyone's work.....

Happy Friday and Happy Creating!!!!

It's such a beautiful artwork inspired by the New York window, the reference photo is amazing too. I had a look at the first in the series too, it's beautiful, this is going to be a great collection and I can't wait to see more.

The portrait is wonderful, the new mum is such a lucky lady, you are very talented ad extremely generous.

See you at the parties & Happy Holidays!

I grew up in Chicago and always loved going downtown to see the windows at Christmastime when I was a kid. That shop window from your NY trip is amazing. I can see how it would be inspiring!

Love your inspired painting and that fun gift!

Très féminine cette dernière publication... J'aime tant tes créations. J'aime la manière comme le miroir, le rouge à lèvre et le visage sont reliés... Cela apporte un mouvement, une vie... J'imagine les longs gants qui attrapent le bâton à lèvre avant de le placer devant le visage... Alors miraculeusement elle entrouvrira les yeux...
Tu vois mon esprit s'en va...
gros bisous ma chérie et bon weekend.

craftattack said...

OH, I wish I could make these words change to the color green because I am green with envy that you saw Bergdorff's windows in person. Your interpretation of it is such fun - full of glam too!

I was in London yesterday - loved looking in the windows of Selfridges.

Anne said...

Wow - what a fabulous painting! Love it.
