Plein 'O Joy an original Acrylic Painting by Joan Princing Art


Here is a painting I completed a little while ago and I totally forgot to post about it.

This is a painting I took my time with and I think that my patience paid off nicely.

There is a lot of wonderful texture on this painting because underneath are two other completely different paintings that I painted over.

I am calling this one Plein 'O Joy because it was painted outside.  Usually I tend to paint indoors, and now I can see why so many artists enjoy the outdoors.  Plein 'O Joy is a very nice size too, it measures 20"tall x 16" wide and 3/4" deep.

Until next time,

Joan

Quote of the Day ...


Having more fun using different apps again!  I really enjoy adding quotes to my art.  It's a lot of fun matching up the quote to my drawings.

I used the Paper 53 Drawing App to sketch this drawing.  Very simple lines on this one.

Happy Monday Everyone.

Using Apps to Design Business Cards



Let's Talk APPsolutely Wondeful Apps for Artists!


I think its very fair to say that I am becoming obsessed using APPS!  Absolutely love them.  

I used this app called:  Canva to create a variety of business cards.  



Plus, I used this app for to design the business card on my iPad:





Here are a few styles I designed for fun:




I really enjoy using my art at the background.



There are so many design choices, it really difficult to choose just one!



See what I mean?  Obsessed?  I think so!!  :o)




Until next time.  Happy Wednesday, Everyone.

Digitally Displaying Art on Walls


I am having tons of fun playing with different apps to showcase my Art on a wall!!  Thank you to my beautiful daughter, McKenna for letting me take this photo at her apartment as a model display.  This photo showcases my angel painting "Never Give Up".

Here are a few more examples:

This one showcases:  "Flora".


This one showcases:  "I'll Get You My Pretty".


And these are true to scale.  That is a 16 x 20 inch frame with my paintings that are 11 x 14.

I have been looking all over for an app to feature your art on walls, and just couldn't find any...so I put on my thinking cap and made my own.

Not bad for a beginner, right?

Until Next Time,

Joan

It's No April Fools!! SOLD another painting by Joan Princing Art



This is no April Fools!  I am so happy and excited because another one of my original Vase Face paintings SOLD.  I can't tell you how grateful I am.

This particular Vase Fase was paying homage to Andy Warhol by combining two of his paintings into this one.

Happy Weekend Everyone.

Until Next time,

Joan
