I just want to take a moment to thank all my faithful subscribers that have been with me all these years—12 years to be exact! Whew—that ’s a lot of paintings and posts!
As you may have noticed, I’m posting more frequently of late, to keep everyone updated on my“Saints And Sinners” series. I’m painting about four new paintings every week and plan to publish a book and a calendar in November with all 50 paintings. (Yep, 50 paintings! Yikes!)
So, if that’s just a bit too many emails in your inbox I want to give you the option to follow along on my Instagram account (https://www.instagram.com/brendayorkart/). There you’ll find all the new paintings plus some behind the scenes stuff and of course, the occasional photo of Pearl, my studio dog (not too many, promise!).
It won’t hurt my feelings if you opt out of receiving the blog post emails and start following me on Instagram. However, I do release the new paintings on the blog before they reach Instagram. So if you want first dibs on a new painting, you’ll want to stay subscribed.
In any case, I just absolutely appreciate all of you that have found my art intriguing and entertaining enough to stay on the ride with me. Thanks a bunch!
Dedicated to my many (tortured) years in Catholic school as a kid. And to the ghastly Sister Mary Francis Catherine, the immortal star of my childhood nightmares. From my new series, "Saints And Sinners. The Dirty Little Secrets."
"Dear Parental Units, thanks for giving me just enough emotional baggage to be an artist but not enough to be a prostitute." -someone I know From my new series, "Saints And Sinners. The Dirty Little Secrets."
Yep, it’s definitely been a while since you’ve heard from me…life just gets in the way sometimes! But, ta-da! Here I am. And I have a new series of small paintings that I’m excited to introduce here, on my blog, first.
And, believe me, I understand if you don’t want yet another email in your inbox—I get it! So if you prefer, you can follow along on Instagram (@brendayorkart) where you will see the same paintings (maybe a couple of days later) and more photos about my process.
So if you need to unsubscribe you won’t hurt my feelings (really) but I do hope you’ll come hang out with me on Instagram!
My new series is called “Saints & Sinners. The Dirty Little Secrets.” If you have followed along on my blog, you know that I spent many (tortured) years in Catholic school as a kid. And one of the most fascinating parts of my Catholic education was learning about all the saints and angels. And the saints and angels that took a wrong turn and became sinners (my favorites). So I thought it might be a fun and informative project to propose a few of my own Saints. And a bunch of those crafty Sinners!
Feel free to submit your favorite Saints & Sinners ideas. Who knows? They might all end up in a fine coffee table book at the end of the project. Oh wait, there was already a book written about all those S&S, right? Well, that one doesn’t have the pretty pictures!
