Blog Of The Week {Julie Beck ~ Paintings in Progress}


Julie Beck
I came across this very talented young woman, Julie Beck, on Twitter. Her blog title "Paintings in Progress" is very apt.






Fantastic, isn't it? I love this clock picture!

Julie's "Awake" painting was chosen for one of the months for the Aquent 2010 Calendar!



And here she is at work:



Julie also has an Etsy shop where she sells some of her pieces. These are just two of the pieces she is selling.



I think you will enjoy looking through, not only Julie's blog, but her Etsy shop as well.

OMG, that clock is a PAINTING?! It looks like a photograph!! And the keys too. WOW!!!

Thanks for letting us know about Julie -- I'll definitely be checking out her blog and her Etsy store.

And on a related topic... I think your dad's artwork on cushions would be awesome!! Isn't the concept behind Fabric on Demand great?? And Rysa (she's the owner) is a real sweetheart :-)

In case you missed it, I asked Rysa about the minimum yardage required for an order -- it's one (1) yard.

I was very taken by her work, Christine. Her blog posts show the detail she puts into her art. As a non-artistic person, I find it fascinating!

Yes, right! One of her posts has a harmonica with cherries - the real thing and the painting next to it. Fantastic! Thank you for finding that out Kelly. I did do some surfing around their site and wound up seeing they would do 1 yard. Now I have to try to get a picture of his pictures without him knowing!

Amazing work - hard to tell the difference between the two - is it live or is it memorex???

I love the one entitled "Awake" - it would look lovely in a breakfast nook somewhere.

I love art, she is good. As for my post, it is a room in a kip bay showhouse, so it has been everywhere. I just had to shake my head though... thanks for playing.

What's amazing Donna is that I remember that tag line for Memorex! She has quite a few things I like in her shop too.

Ah yes, the Kips Bay rooms have been in so many magazines; I knew I saw it before.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love finding and sharing such talented people, Cathy! I don't know a lot about art, but I do know what I like ~ I do like Julie's work for sure.

Hi Alaura, thanks for coming by! I'm glad you enjoyed looking at Julie's work too.
