Hey guys, I recently started taking an abstract painting class at Lillstreet Art Center and I am absolutely in love with it! I really feel like this class has helped get my creative juices flowing again... 

Abstract painting inspired by jewelry

After a couple of classes I am starting to get out of my comfort zone and explore new territory. The painting helps me unwind after an exhausting work week as well as find new inspiration... who knows, maybe my next collection will be based on one of my paintings? I enjoy the fact that when I paint I work 2 dimensionally as opposed to 3 dimensionally like I do with my jewelry. I also really enjoy playing around with color, because with sterling and gold and gemstones you can only go so far...

If you are interested in taking a painting class, take a look here! It is a great way to relax after work, get lost in your thoughts and reconnect with your inner artist... And in case you end up taking a class at Lillstreet Art Center make sure to stop by my studio on the third floor, down the hall from the painting studios!
