Monthly Miniature, The Children of Artists

I was worried about how I was going to balance motherhood with being an artist, but I’ve been amazed at how well the two are coming together. The Children of Artists is a mantra of courage and a celebration of creative power that I began just before my son’s first birthday.  The first painting in the series is of my own son and each of the other paintings will feature a different artist’s child. I meditate on balancing two great passions and I thank each artist I know who continues to work, particularly those who manage to raise children at the same time. I have also asked each artist to write about their parenting and artmaking experience. It is difficult to express how powerful it is to read the stories of people I admire and recognize in them my own joys and struggles. Read their stories and learn more about each painting and the artwork their parents make on my blog.

Monthly Miniature, Into the Country

My early memories are few but vivid, with joy and sorrow in equal measure. When I was small, I discovered the aftermath of a weasel attack in the hen house. Yet I also remember the sole survivor, a newly hatched chick who followed me everywhere. As my father succumbed to Multiple Sclerosis, the rest of us took more responsibility for the animals, and I reveled in it.

Now I paint animals, revisiting fond memories of my dad and the wonder of growing up on a small family farm. My work also draws influences from the language of portraiture from the Northern Renaissance and the Dutch Golden age of painting, and the animals that grace my life today. I seek not only the likeness of my subject, but also the beauty particular to them.

The second Monthly Miniature series, Into the Country, features animals from my mother-in-law’s herds and flocks (and more). Portraits from the series are painted in a style inspired by the classical Dutch portrait, and continue a mood from the first miniature in the “Paintings of Rabbits” series. The series began as my ongoing Monthly Miniature project, but evolved to also include larger paintings.

Monthly Miniature, Paintings of Rabbits

The first Monthly Miniature series chronicles two large personalities in my studio, rabbits Charlemagne and Eleanor. Paintings of Rabbits takes miniature portraiture to strange, new places. Finding new ways to portray the same two rabbits was a great challenge that became more generative and exciting as the series progressed, with every other painting inspiring ideas for new future work.

For me, painting animals is much like painting people. Seeking the subject’s personality, a narrative, a mood remain steady areas of focus. With each painting, I learn more about these personable yet highly individual creatures, and my own connection to them, at once foreign and familiar.

Each Monthly Miniature in this series is fitted to a unique, hand-restored antique frame.

Take a look at my Coins gallery to see more miniatures, all under 2″ in diameter and visit my blog to learn more about the rabbit painting.
