Did you all know I am an artist? For years I painted traditional oils and then modern abstract art. Today I am sharing my favorite collection I painted!
It’s all about Project Runway. What? A few years ago I painted over forty large abstract paintings which were all inspired by dresses created on Project Runway. I can’t wait to share them with you!
Season 2 Volume 5
Thanks for joining me for Sunday morning coffee. Today I am sharing my weekly thoughts about entertaining, decor, crafts, and recipes and I thought it might be fun to share a side of me most of you aren’t familiar with … painting modern abstract art!
I love to paint and for years I painted abstract paintings. The painting above is one I painted and it is hanging in the dining room of our Waco home.
I love sharing things from my past and the other day my girlfriends and I started talking about one of my favorite shows, Project Runway. It reminded me of the collection I painted a few years ago that was inspired by the dresses created on Project Runway. I am hoping you like it!
So how did I create this collection of paintings?
I found forty dresses that I loved from the show and then I used them as the inspiration for the modern abstract art paintings I created. The dress above is covered in dots so I painted a painting in a similar color palette with circles! Most of the paintings were large. In fact, this painting was 36″ square!
Sometimes I had to get really creative and for this painting below, I added a collage. I printed paper and glued it to the canvas to incorporate the houndstooth pattern of the fabric!
My Project Runway Inspired Modern Abstract Art
Here are the forty-five paintings I created for the Project Runway Collection.
I would love to know what you think. Do you remember any of these dresses from the show? Which painting is your favorite?
Writing this post has definitely made me want to start painting abstracts again. Of course, I am so busy it might be hard to find the time!
I have been in Waco all week and had the most amazing time. I joined four other bloggers for a few days of brainstorming and all I can say is WOW! There are so many exciting things happening and I cannot wait to share them all with you.
We spent all week learning about some amazing new products for bloggers and influencers. I learned all about the Reconalist Content Strategy Portal. It started with an extensive audit of my blog. For those of you who are struggling with SEO and how to grow your organic traffic, this is the most incredible solution. The portal tells you exactly what to do because it is based on all of your data from your google analytics. It shares how to plan your editorial calendar, which older posts to post (and when), an email topic generator, and more.

Of course, my brain hurts! We spent a lot of time brainstorming and thinking outside of the box! These gals are all amazing.
I am so excited, motivated, and encouraged about my plans for the future.

We spent the entire week in our Waco Airbnb and I have to say I am even more in love with our kitchen!
The Waco kitchen is a wonderful place to cook and entertain. I loved making dinners for my girlfriends here.
The kitchen island is a vintage store counter I found at the Round Top antique show. Sometimes it looks gray and often times it looks blue. I love the color so much and it is what first caught my attention when I saw this vintage piece.

I get asked all of the time about the decor in our Waco AirBnB. Below are links to some of my favorite decor items in my Waco AirBnb.
Did you know you should eat three servings of fruit a day as part of your healthy diet? Some of the healthiest fruits include strawberries, pineapple, apples, blueberries, and mangos.
Eating fruit improves heart health, reduces inflammation, and boosts your immune system.
This week is going to be so much fun. I will be sharing Pink apples, Raspberry heart-shaped scones, Valentine’s Day Table for two, Valentine modern family room ideas, a heart-shaped appetizer, and a Valentine decor pillow.
