My Favorite Piece with Studio E Houston

We’re thrilled to welcome Erica Sandberg of Studio E Houston to Heartmade this Saturday! Her dreamy paintings drew us right in and we know they will find a lot of good homes with our fantastic customers. Visit Erica on Main this Saturday from 10-5 at Heartmade Harvest!

My favorite piece that I have created recently is called “Mauvescape #1.” I had some idea of what I wanted to try to accomplish with these colors and luckily it worked! This piece is an alcohol ink painting on yupo paper. Alcohol ink dries very quickly so I had very little time to manipulate the colors to create a mountainous type landscape. After the painting was completed and dried, I mounted the yupo paper on 8” x 10” cradled birch panel. I love that this piece has so many layers and so much depth. I usually use more brilliant colors, but I really love the more muted color palette. I look forward to showing everyone more of my work in my first Heartmade market!
