I’m on Instagram and blogging feels like homework.

Posted in Miscellaneous on June 8, 2016 by AmyFloyd'sArtwork

So I have noticed that I do not write much. I’m not sure why. It feels like homework to me I think. I work in a school as an art teacher as well as work in my studio as an artist. Maybe I just see blogging as one more thing to do! I am on Instagram and I use very little words on there and it makes me happy.  You can follow me there by clicking this Amy Floyd Studio  instagram

Secrets of the Siren

Posted in Paintings with tags , , , , , , , on September 24, 2015 by AmyFloyd'sArtwork

I’m boxing up this painting that I’m so excited to ship off to California. I’m so thrilled that things are moving in the right direction with selling my artwork. My artwork isn’t flying off of the shelves but that is okay with me because I still work a full time job. I don’t think I would be able to keep up with both. However, upon looking at the boxed up painting I’m a little sad to see it go. It was a family favorite. We grew accustomed to walking by it in the entry way. We will miss it. I hope the new home will enjoy it as much as we did. Goodbye “Secrets of the Siren”.

Moment’s Notice

Posted in Paintings with tags , , , , , , on October 26, 2014 by AmyFloyd'sArtwork

For some reason I love a fresh white canvas. The possibilities are endless and I love attacking it. However, the big however, when I get 95% done with a painting I tend to stall, I second guess things, and then I’m afraid to make a mark . The the end result is a painting that is dragging on with no completion in sight! I managed to force myself to finish this one. I do love the end result and I’m happy I didn’t give up. Hope you enjoy it too.

Oh Betty

I did a series of paintings of these very feminine dresses. They were mostly inspired by McCall’s patterns via Google. However, I noticed that the best silhouettes were actually poses done from the actresses of Madmen. You will have to guess which painting has “Betty” in it. You can see more of these on Facebook/AmyFloyd’sArtwork.

I Live in the Desert

Posted in Paintings with tags on January 13, 2014 by AmyFloyd'sArtwork

Apparently I love the rain.  Living in the desert will do that to you.  The only people who complain about the rain are the visitors trying to get away from the rain.  I have had a lot of fun using a lot of drippy paint and playing around with abstracting the landscapes.  I have more of these on my Facebook page at Amy Floyd’s Artwork. Enjoy~
