Artist Inspiration: Sarah Ahearn Bellemare

Sarah's work

I absolutely ADORE mixed-media artist Sarah Ahearn Bellemare!! She is a burst of HAPPY! The first time I saw her work was in a Somerset magazine and I went NUTS!! Her work is so simple, so bright and cheerful. It inspired me to paint my very own canvas...I LOVE the results!!


The canvas is 11x14 and filled with bits and pieces of my favorite epherema.


I used very watered down acrylic paints, stamps and pencil.


The quote I used was actually taken from one of Sarah's pieces...it is now one of my all-time favorites!


Here is my finished piece!! It hangs in my studio and makes me smile every time I see it. I plan on painting many other Sarah inspired pieces in the coming months. This was just so much FUN!

Be sure and stop by her blog...I think you'll really like it:)
