January, 2010

What’s New
~ Replacement camera
~ New colored pencils
~ Shoulder surgery
~ New Paintings; “Supernova” and “Alienation”

For the holidays, Lana treated herself to a used Canon PowerShot A570IS digital camera, to replace her old one, which died unexpectedly back in August. Although she hasn’t had the opportunity, she’s greatly looking forward to getting out again with it and taking new pictures around St. Tammany Parish.
She also received a Prismacolor colored pencil set as a gift. Pencil drawings make up the bulk of her artistic beginnings and this gift has inspired her to return to those roots.
In other news, in mid-December Lana underwent long-needed surgery to repair the torn rotator cuff and damaged cartilage of her left shoulder. Although this has put her creative pursuits on hold for the time being, she’s on the way to recovery and is currently kicking around ideas for future paintings, photos and drawings.

New Works
Lana completed two abstract paintings before her surgery; "Alienation" and "Supernova" (shown above.) The latter includes iridescent paints and salt deposits, both of which catch and reflect light. It was also left outside briefly during a rare, recent snow, to further blend the pigments and salt in the painting.
