no place like...

It is true. There really is no place like home. I love being home more than anyplace else. It holds my family and my art studio and all that is dear to me. Don't get me wrong, I long to travel and I like to be out and about and do different 'out and about stuff'. But ultimately, home always feels so good. I like to paint houses and my houses, like my hair, always seem to come out colorful and happy. I painted a few of these rainbow row houses a while back and decided to revisit this little series. I made a postcard size one with the letters H O M E, well, because I thought it would be cute. And, by gosh, I was right! hope you think so too!

going abstract

I have been playing with watercolor. Again. Trying my hand at some abstracts. I, of course, love color and pattern and so I thought I would play simply with those two things without fretting over if an image looks the way "it should". I have been having a lot of fun and am hoping to turn these paintings into a line of fabric. Even if they don't end up on fabric, I still plan on framing them into a little series and selling them as a complete set...we will see. It takes time for things to get from the drawing board to the next stages, whatever the next stage(s) may be. Anyway I wanted to post them here and see what you all think!

hope your day is filled with color!

Kae Pea

Kae Pea. Say it phonetically, it is K.P. (short for, you guessed it, Kristen Powers!)
That is my new name. Or at least my new 'art name'. I have decided to go by this for various reasons, mostly because I want to streamline all of my online stuff and i like the way it looks visually. So from now on you will see my work signed like this:
I am excited by this new change and look forward to the next few months creating a new online presence. I hope you will check in with me to see the new work and projects I will be offering this year and into 2012!
In the meantime, I am also working and teaching at Wood Icing Gallery & Studio in the Chesterfield Mall. I work every Monday and one weekend per month. I will be teaching a whole lotta workshops both project and technique based. ALSO offering a FREE art demo every Monday afternoon! So PLEASE stop in and say hi and art around for a while!
hope to see you soon! xokp
