"Architecture is the will of an epoch translated into space." -Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
~Ana Livingston, Fine Artist & Muralist
Hello, friends! I thought I'd stop by and let you know that I have been working diligently on a new art expansion plan that will be coming to fruition within the coming months.
As many of you may not know, between working in the Tampa, FL area as well as in Los Angeles, the vast majority of my artwork sales are generated from private commissions--either the individual has seen my work in galleries, private homes or on the side of very large buildings. :) In addition to my current workflow, I now plan to create and offer affordable works on various online sites such as Fine Art America, Saatchi Art, etc. This is an exciting new phase for me as I can now create works that will be available to many more people. So I'm happy and excited to have you along for the ride! (I also intend to check in here and blog more frequently-- I promise!)
I will still be accepting commissions, as always, so if you still have that wild idea you'd just love to have put on canvas or paper, contact me and let me know the specifics!
We'll talk again soon!
Hello! I recently created a "Support-An-Artist" page on the crowd-funding website Patreon*, and I'm here to thank those who have already made pledges to me and my art! I appreciate you all SO much for having faith in my artistic goals!

Day 3 in the lovely Florida sun. It's quite beautiful out as long as you can withstand the high temperature...in the direct sun..for hours. I happen to like it (as long as there's a breeze,) so no complaints here.
I worked on the two whole grapefruit today; one each on the two panels.
I'll probably be working on the grapefruit halves tomorrow. Lots of reshaping and defining to do with these. All in all, I'm just happy the blobs are starting to come to life!
Second day at the two-panel Grapefruit Mural. No refinement as yet; just applied some bright colors. At least they're pretty blobs now. :) I'll be back at it tomorrow!
Close-up of applying a second layer. I am primarily left-handed, but when it comes to painting I am ambidextrous.
First day on a private commission dual-panel piece here in sunny Clearwater, Florida. Perfect activity for Earth Day!
Today I hope we all take an extra moment and let the people we care about know how truly important they are to us; how they brighten our days and enrich our lives; how they make this journey called life so very worthwhile.
I’m wishing you all a wonderful day of love, admiration and respect, as each of you is important to me. :)
