Happy Monday, friends! This is one of my favorite little nooks of our home. My garden tote, carry-all, small purse, and garden hat (or just “its-too-friggin-hot-to-be-outside-hat”). I’ve dubbed this my "ready for anything" corner 😃 Just need to stick a canvas & brush in a bag and I’m good to go!! .

SOLD! “And another one gone. And another one gone!” Special Thanks going out to Tony and Keiawanna Pitts for their support! Congratulations on starting their MJ Art collection! It is truly a humbling and rewarding experience when someone connects with something you create. Even more so when they take action and actually purchase it. Thanks Pitts Family! ...and they’re already staking out their 2nd piece! Gotta love it. #grateful #marcusjacksonart #artdesign #artlife #barbedwire #austinart

I’ve really been enjoying playing with shadows and movement of botanicals. Detail of a work in progress. •

Not going to lie... this whole prepping for baby thing has me spinning around in circles like a chicken with no head! Not really physically, just mentally. Both Bryan and I feel such a sweet calm and chill about Lucy's arrival and becoming parents - something we can only attribute to the Lord! - but it's been the business side of things that made me a little 🤪 as I planned out my production schedule from now until November. You know what I decided? Grace. Grace and peace is so much better than busyness and stress. Sooo (not counting the #michelleboydxloft release next week), soon I'll be sharing how I'll be releasing new paintings from now until November, and it will be a lot more chill than I'd originally planned. And I'm THRILLED with that :) .

Real BTS look at a huge part of the commission planning process! This diptych floral painting will be going in my own momma's spare room in their beaauuutiful home. Creating something unique for anyone's space is such an honor, and the process that eventually gets us to the final product is half the fun for me. I bring my paint swatches into the space, we look at your existing color palette of the room, bedding, upholstery, furniture, etc. and decide on a color palette right then and there. For this palette in particular, the client (hi mom!) wanted a floral abstract, so we went ahead and assigned petal, stem, background, and accent colors while we were at it. She loves canvas more than wood panels, and will end up framing these pieces side by side - so canvases with unpainted sides it was. After sending her a few floral composition photographs to choose from (you can certainly supply your own if you have one), I finally got to start on this project today... and BOY is it fun!! See some behind the scenes goodness of this work in progress in my stories. And if you're interested in a commissioned piece, I am only taking a couple more for 2018 until bébé Boyd arrives in November! E-mail me for all the yummy details. .

Little throwback to “Summer No. 17” from last year. I’ve been so immersed in florals recently but I’m feeling the itch to do some abstracts, too! .

FOLLOW 💜👉🏼 @julieahmad_art. Playing dress up in the studio with @camilabfloresc, and putting some metallics into your life! By the way... I have a birthday coming up... it's so funny I keep telling everyone I'm turning 40, truth is that I'm turning 39. The reaction is so much better... I'm getting the OMG, NO WAY R U 40! You look amazing! Hell yeah! Works for me! Go ahead... try it, it's fun!

Nine sweet, gentle, and neutral abstract florals were added to the shop today, and they're now available to view and purchase! Subscribers snatched up a couple over lunch, and I am SO beyond grateful for every purchase! Thank you! Every time you purchase original art, somewhere there's an artist doing an awkward happy dance. That would be me today :) .

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT BEING AN ARTIST?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love the freedom to take my business in the creative direction I choose. I love being my own boss and captain of my own ship. There is nothing more difficult for me than working on a project I don’t believe in. I value authenticity so highly in all aspects that I simply must be a leading my own vessel, and being an artist/entrepreneur gives me that freedom.

Want to know a little tip on staying productive? Think about what kind of worker you already are. Do you LOVE lists? Post-it notes? Digital reminders vs a spiral calendar? One of the best things I've ever done for my business is recognizing that I work best with a weekly to-do list, written on Monday, categorized, and subsequently crossed off. If I don't "brain dump" on Monday and get all my to-do's on paper, they do.not.happen. So I'm fist-pumping that today I sat my butt down and got back into the groove of Monday brain dumps and to-dos! .
.
Also, these pretties will be added to the site this week. Let me know if you have your eye on something and I can send you the deets ahead of time!

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
WHAT WAS YOUR INSPIRATION WHEN CREATING ‘‘MOJO RISEN I & II’’? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My husband and I moved into a small 2-bedroom apartment with our daughter for 6 months while we remodeled our home. We work from home, so trying to cram both our living and workspace into a small apartment was less than ideal. He set up shop in the living room, and I set up shop in our bedroom (my supplies and easel was actually even on his side of the bed, yikes!). It took me a long time to settle into the space with a 2-½ year old and then quickly turn around and move out again back into our permanent home. Not much work was created in those 6 months; I think Mojo Risen I & II were the only two pieces created in that time frame. There was this sweet spot when I felt I was finally getting back into the groove — hence I was getting my mojo back — and that was when the two pieces were born.

Sometimes oils surprise me and dry a lot faster than anticipated! Therefore, a few very light and neutral floral originals will be added to the shop soon... I’m thinking next week! 🙌🏻🙌🏻

My work is an exploration of intuitive painting, I never have the final outcome in mind from the start. The canvas leads and tells its own story. I, the artist, am merely a vehicle for the application. #intuitivepainting .

40”x 60” Day Break pt.1 is one of the big guys that went to hang at @triangletulsa ❤️ This was one of my very favorite pieces to make. A part of me misses seeing them in the studio, but I’m very happy they found a home!! •

A dear friend commissioned this painting for her new daughter’s room, and I could not believe how many emotions I felt seeing it installed this morning! With deep olive tones, soft lilacs, and the sweetest teals, we wanted this painting to be a bright pop of light for this sweetheart to enjoy as she grows up. .

We're getting busy in the studio! Teaching Cori how to install hardware... so I don’t have to! The best thing about having an assistant is that it’s there job to do most of the things u don’t want to so u can focus on the things u love to do! Like making more art!!! Such a game changer! .

It's @coribakerphotography rocking the power bun and snapping pics of my new piece, "Butterfly Kisses". While using the metallic foils, small flecks kept falling onto my face like butterfly kisses, and viola! A name is born! How do you create names for your artwork?

Calling all badass, female artists! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are looking to fill 1-2 more spots in our all female group showing at the East Austin Studio Tour this fall. “Femme-EASTa” is currently composed of 3 female artists @julieahmad_art, @billieclairehandmade and @maridad.studio. We will be showing at the Austin School of Film and already have our space reserved.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a member of this group you would be responsible for attending group meetings, shared costs of marketing efforts, and having a collection of art that fits our theme (it doesn’t have to be new art made especially for the theme if your current art already works). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The theme of our show this year is breaking social constructs surrounding women like sexuality, body image, occupation, swearing, drinking, etc. Artists will have their own direction within this theme, focusing on one topic personally inspires them.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For an example of our marketing efforts and our last show, please refer to our West Austin Studio Tour group, “Women of West, Empowering Women in the Arts” on my blog. www.julieahmad.com/blog
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our group is definitely for you if you are craving #sisterhood, #communityovercompetition and want work in an uplifting environment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Please send your website or portfolio to art@julieahmad.com for consideration. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
