Bree and the Dreamweaver Coat with Some Photos of my Wall at the Gallery

Bree and the Dreamweaver Coat
8 x 10 inch mixed acrylic, oil pastel and colored pencil on canvas panel

If I had a coat like this one, it would cause some definite dreamweaving because I love anything that looks as bohemian as this.  Plus, with all this winter we all could probably use such a coat.  Right now I am in love with my own Kansas landscape and this painting was inspired by it.

More Kansas in the photo below too.

 I'm thinking about nature a lot and how much I love being outside.  I walk every day...even in the cold.  I've been known to walk in 18 degree weather.  Call me crazy, but a good coat, a decent hat and some gloves is all I need and I stay plenty warm.

 I had my first Final Friday at Tessera Fine Art Gallery and the photos you see below are the first time I saw my own wall display.  They did a lovely job hanging the art.  It was very slow Friday, so no sales were made.  The nice thing is the art can stay up.  I plan to switch things around every two months.

  I have two oil paintings in progress.  They are for my show at City Arts this Spring.

I hope you had a great weekend!

  1. what a fabulous painting of Bree! It just captures the cold and winter and I would love to have a coat like that too!

  2. That coat -- and painting is fabulous. I'm a walker too -- we lived in Florida for about 12 years and it took me a while, but now I love my winter walks the best.
    Your gallery wall is so exciting. I don't think people spend money when it's cold -- lol - well they will when they see Bree and her dreamweaver coat. xx

  3. Your gallery paintings looks so beautiful! I love your work.

  4. Love the coat, but her hair even more. The houses are wonderful and gives such a feeling of distance.
    Neat you can see through the window at your wall as well. You made a great grouping.
    I am a daily walker - harder in the heat than the cold. Missing my dog on the walks I so enjoyed watching her pleasure every step of the way.

  5. Good Morning Lisa,
    You're one strong woman to brave the elements and I salute your spirit, Lisa.
    I enjoyed seeing your work in-place and agree that the gallery owner did a fine job hanging the show.
    I'm also sure sales will pick-up once more folks learn your work is there. Sometimes word of mouth works better than any other means of announcing a show. Keep the faith!
    Enjoy your walk!

  6. so wonderful, love your Kansas shots. and I think you need to weave a coat like this for both of's gorgeous! xo

  7. I just love that dream-weaver coat, I had several Afghan coats on my youth and gave them names I loved them so much, they were very long, maxi style made of thick sheepskin and covered in embroidery, oh how I loved them!! Thank you for the trip down memory lane, the gallery looks so beautiful, what a great place to show off your fabulous work!

  8. Your painting is very atmospheric. I can almost feel the cold. I think you come up with some great titles for your paintings .

  9. This morning I could use a beautiful coat like Bree's!

  10. The gallery wall looks great. I want a coat like Bree's too. I am making my shawl just for this reason. xox

  11. Me, too! I would LOVE to have a coat like that!! Your art looks amazing at the gallery!! Keeping my fingers crossed for sales. BTW, I love the painting you completed for your mother-in-law! It is beautiful.

  12. I love the painting and the coat. I tried to look at it on etsy and see it is gone already! Congratulations. and also on your gallery hanging, well done! Good luck with sales there too. I'm also a walker, my dogs don't let me take a day off but I don't want to anyway.

  13. The wall looks amazing.. and yes, Bree's coat is very bohemian it.
