Cotton candy sunset 🌴☀️🌺
the ocean on new year’s day.
my mom came to visit back in mid december. we had a great time as per usual. i took her kayaking for the first time and she absolutely LOVED it. we did a lot of thrift store shopping, beach reading and hanging with the manatees. it was an ideal trip, and i’m ready for her to come back!
yosemite is one of my favorite places. (see
) these are some photos from a trip to the valley taken last fall with my little brother. if you have a little brother i suggest taking a road trip with him. or take him to dinner (or lunch). anything really. just don’t take them for granted, for they are little gifts from the universe.
Leaving for Petaluma tomorrow to paint for a week with Camille Przwodek… I am beyond excited! A few past trips…
My first Plein Air Easel… it didn’t work too well, learned quick what NOt to use!
Sol used to always come with me!
Estes Park Plein Air…
8 x 24" Oil on Canvas
I have been working quite obsessively on landscapes lately. I feel like if I don’t “get them out” I might forget how it felt to be there. Mostly from memory and sketches, these pieces are painted in oil over thick layers of Acrylic. Thick paint combined with thin washes and visible pencil marks are really exciting me right now, I am working on how to incorporate these ideas into my portraits. Fun stuff. These pieces are both available, please email me for purchase information. Nicole@abunnyaday.com
On my breaks from working, I am either on the phone, checking e mail, peeking in my partner’s sudio or chillin with my furry kids. I will be happy when these “summer clean up” projects are over so I can get back to my regular schedule! It’s so nice though, my art studio hasn’t been this organized in years!!!!
A few weeks ago I posted a link to
little write up in
… well a apparently I’m slow because I didn’t realize I had won a “Best of the East Bay” Award, in “Nursery Decor.” I am giving myself a tiny pat on the back, it’s nice to be recognized for something I’ve worked so hard on!
