WIP - Feeling the Blues

Kristen Laczi Palm Leaf Work In Progress - Feeling the Blues

This year I've experienced more growth than I ever did in Buffalo. Back home I always played it safe, hardly ever showing my work and hiding behind my old business name. This year I've been putting myself out there slowly, with my real name, across various platforms and have been watching my work slowly evolve due to the environment that I currently living in. 

I cringe looking back at some of my older pieces, but that's all about the process! Progress is always better than perfection. It's amazing to see where I came from and where I'm headed as an artist. I've been so inspired by life on Long Island, especially all the nature out East in the Hamptons and Montauk. 

Next year I want to get involved in craft shows and hopefully get my work in some of these beautiful Hampton homes! Thats the goal. I enjoy painting for myself, but lately I have been keeping my potential clients in mind. What would they want to see or decorate with? 

So this next month I'll be painting with the classic hues of blue. I'm striving for pieces that are a bit more upscale (compared to my bright tropical colors) with a mix of elegance and fun.
