Four newly finished abstract landscape paintings based on western Sonoma County, “Valley of the Moon.” I love these colors, the deep reds and purples against cool bright greens and blues, and they way they reference fog, vineyards, ocean, rivers, rocky coastlines, oaks and redwoods… And of course, the full moon hanging low over it all.
Starting today, I am showing six pieces through Silicon Valley Open Studios Online Art Show & Sale… https://svos.org/artist/norah-christmann/
A portion of the proceeds of all sales goes to DrawBridge, a local nonprofit providing arts programs for homeless kids.
Visit soon to see many talented local artists strut their stuff!
Every once in a while I look around and think “How lucky am I?!”… A beautiful relaxing productive day in my own fantastic little studio ❤️
Just a quick note to say that I’ve updated my Etsy shop with over 50 new listings, both original paintings and prints. Check it out here http://www.etsy.com/shop/norahblueart
Head over to my Portfolio page to view over 30 new paintings that I’ve completed in the last four months. It’s been a wonderfully creative and prolific time! Etsy shop updates will happen in the next few days. Enjoy!
A painting for the chakra series… “Manipura, I Do”, for the solar plexus chakra.
(much acknowledgement and appreciation for the influence of work by amazing artist Faith Evans-Sills in her book “Painting the Sacred Within”)
A bit more graphic, bright, and hopeful… reminding me of hills, fog, sunsets, bridges, secret stairways, twisty roads, downtown, and the bay.
I’m really enjoying the restraint of these colors and small marks combined with the feathery way of moving my brush (even using a brush instead of fingers can be unusual for me 😉).
Based on the online class, Abstract Bliss with Faith Evans-Sills and Mari Rose McDonough.
