Pau Pop Up!

pau pop up feb

Hello there! This was maybe my 5th time setting up a “Pau Pop Up” … I never know what’s gonna happen or who I’m going to meet. There are days when nobody will say anything to me, and there are days I’ll sell a few things and get motivational comments.  But it’s cool that way. On Saturday I got a late start.. I only stayed a couple hours and didn’t get anyone to talk to me until after I closed up shop, of course. It was kind of a last minute thing, and wasn’t as prepared as I thought I’d be! I know now that next week I’ll set up super early, bring actual paintings, and get a good spot right off a corner. That way I’m not directly in traffic and I can set up bigger pieces with plenty of space 🙂
Thanks to my friends Shami and Taryn for helping me out to get this done!

Pet Portraits

pet portraits

I’ve been commissioned to paint furry best friends recently, which I’ve actually enjoyed a lot. It’s fun to challenge myself by trying out different textures for fur, sizing ears, picking out the best color for the background, etc..

I have a couple more pups I’ll be posting soon!

If you’d like your own pet portrait done, contact me at: paupauart@gmail.com

Sculptures of Maria Rubinke

Maria is one of my favorite artists currently based out of Copenhagen, Denmark. Her ideas are dark and twisted yet undeniably intriguing..I love checking out her work frequently because she always has something new that she executes perfectly.

I’m a proud owner of this piece. It’s definitely the most favorite thing I own. Check out her brilliance below.
