Alabama Pitcher Plant ~ Paintings 2017

Alabama Pitcher Plant ~ Paintings 2017

I tasked myself to knock out a painting for the upcoming Baykeepers annual Art of the Bay show at The Mobile Arts Council in Mobile, AL. We were given a variety of things to choose from relating to the Mobile Bay Watershed. I chose the Alabama Pitcher Plant! What a phenomenal piece of nature. I really enjoyed painting these and studying them. The detailing was taxing at time but well worth the end result. I’m happy that I decided to film the painting of it as I think it’s fun to watch. I hope you also find it fun and interesting to watch! Thanks for looking!

Now on You Tube!

Now on You Tube!

So, I’ve started recording videos of my work. It was a bit of a hiccup at first but with a few tweaks I was able to get it working. My first video was fun and I learned a lot of lessons throughout.

The video is a montage of 3 different sittings of the same painting. Through the first 2 sittings, my camera wasn’t very good so I apologize for the quality. However, midway through my camera changes and the quality is so much better! The video is almost 7 hours of work compressed into 7 minutes. I’m not sure how many lengthy videos like this that I’ll be doing but I do plan on doing many more videos in the future and experimenting and letting the world a glimpse into my studio. I hope you enjoy and thanks for watching!  As they say, please “like”, subscribe and share my video!  <3 Lisa

Here’s the finished painting:

Stormy Night in Alabama

Stormy Night in Alabama

I recently created a You Tube channel to upload videos of various things I come across. This one evening, the sky was angry. It was a beautiful hot night and the sky was dancing!

Before I made that video above, I encountered some quiet sky action. Perhaps it was this other storm coming in or was heat lightning. This area is prone to a lot of lightning and especially on hot summer nights .. the sky just lights up. It was dark on the Delta while driving on the Causeway so the video is very black with splashes of the bight sky throughout. I set it to music, just to liven it up a bit 🙂  Was fun!
