Yo, Chicago!

Neptunias II, III, V, & VI arriving soon @ Chicago Art Source!!!


I reworked these paper pieces from a year or two ago.  It seems that I cannot let a piece of mine come back into my studio and leave again without me messing with it...tweaking the color, redefining forms, etc.  Kind of how I do my kids before they go out the door again, straightening their clothes, picking on their hair, wiping their faces with a licked finger (which I SWORE I would never, ever do to my kids because it always made me gag when my mother would do that to me, which was ALL the time...ew, sorry, kids :) 

Anyway, that is so not the point.  The point is...the pictures.

Just Super, Y'all.

Well, it's another Super Day @ the studio.  This painting, commissioned for a Houston residence, was inspired by a previous painting from the Superflow exhibition @ Laura Rathe  titled Superflow: Bloom XXV.

In other news, I am eagerly awaiting an email from my graphic and web designer, Hollie (who is super awesome btw) @ Emblem Creative, that says, "Hey, Meredith...guess what?!  Your new site is up!!"  The test site looks FANtastic.  What?  Well, it does. Soooooo excited...stay tuned, y'all!

Wow, I am linking the heck out of things today.

Orchidas XX-XXII @ Laura Rathe Fine Art


I just finished these paper pieces yesterday, and they will soon be in the inventory of Laura Rathe Fine Art in Houston.

Ok, I really cannot get enough of this magenta / fuschia / red-violet color combo.  I love the way the pigment separates when it is diluted with water.  It is simply magnetic.  The thin, delicate borders which form around the transparent puddles of diluted paint are such a quiet, but stark delineation.  It is the combination of these two things that continues to remind me of the vivid fuchsia of my orchid plant.  It is a small plant, but the color of the petals is so intense that it carries quite a presence in the room.

Orchids are one of very few plants that can usually survive a few months with me. I am going to work on my green thumb this summer.  I am!  I am going to grow an herb garden--a very simple one--with rosemary, basil, sage, and mint.  I am doing to do my best not to murder the rosemary.  We kind of have issues.  Anyway, I will keep you posted on my progress (if there is progress to share! :)
