Announcement   Original Paintings by Christy Robinson Pillow

Thanks for visiting my shop! If my art enriches someone else's life, or my own, then it's worthwhile! I feature my smaller works here as well as notecards and prints. If you'd like to view my complete body of work, please visit my website: www.TheFrontPorchStudio.com or stay up to date on Facebook: www.facebook.com/frontporchstudio (and please "Like" me when you're there!).

I paint because I love to create. God gave me a precious gift, and I'm thankful every day for it. My style is impressionist with an emphasis on vibrant colors. I enjoy creating art that captures the spirit of the moment and inspires others. I favor painting architecture and animals, but really enjoy painting just about any subject. My “favorite” is usually what I’m currently painting or one that I just finished. I paint originals as well as accept commissions.

Enjoy!
Christy

•´´`¸.•¨¸¸.•¨`•. ¸¸.• THANK YOU ~~´`•´¸.•¨¸.•¨ ¨`´`•. ¸¸.• I wish there was 1000 STAR Rating because I cannot begin to write about how Absolutely FUNtastic this little Painting is!! A+++++ doesn't even come close! Christy depicts the Baby Chickadee Perfectly, with a Fabulous Color Palette and a sense of Adventure and Playfulness to give this piece it's Wondrous Presence. I am SO happy with my Painting! Christy is also a Truly Caring and Kind seller and went above and beyond to make sure that everything was Perfect during the Ordering Process! I HIGHLY Recommend Christy and her Work and I will not hesitate to purchase another Painting from her in the Future!! :)

About

About me...

Growing up in Virginia Beach, VA, I always had a strong interest in art. I loved to draw and create, and took fine art courses in high school and college. Unfortunately, school was not as interesting to me as my social life was, so I never finished. After moving to Raleigh, NC in 1992, I had a very successful Real Estate career in the Homebuilding Industry in sales and management.

Due to a collapsing economy that hit my industry exceptionally hard, I was laid off in 2008. While unemployed I started to crave a creative outlet. I took some painting classes and rediscovered my passion for creating art. After lots of prayer and tremendous support from my family and friends, I decided to change my career path and focus on my painting.

I paint because I love to create. God gave me a precious gift, and I'm thankful every day for it. My style is impressionist with an emphasis on vibrant colors. I enjoy creating art that captures the spirit of the moment and inspires others. My inspiration comes from simple, everyday things. I may see a home with beautiful dappled sunlight, or children playing on the beach; something clicks and I’m off to paint. I strive to capture and recreate the true character and spirit of the moment, and I want the viewer to feel like they’re experiencing the moment, too. I want you to “want to be there”. If my art enriches someone else’s life, or my own, then it’s worthwhile.

I started my Etsy shop to highlight some of my smaller works.

I paint because I am the happiest when I’m creating something beautiful. God gave me a precious gift that I’m thankful for every day. I enjoy creating art that captures the spirit of the moment and inspires others. My inspiration comes from simple, everyday things. I may see a home with beautiful dappled light, or children playing on the beach; something clicks and I’m off to paint. I strive to capture and recreate the true character and spirit of the moment, and I want the viewer to feel like they’re experiencing the moment, too. I want you to “want to be there”. If my art enriches someone else’s life, or my own, then it’s worthwhile.

I never start a painting until I feel a connection to the subject. I use heavy body professional grade acrylic paints for several reasons- they’re what I learned with, the colors are vibrant, flexibility because the paint dries quickly, and I don’t have to mess with chemicals to clean up. My style is impressionist with an emphasis on vibrant colors. I have painted some “en plein aire”, but primarily from photographs. I favor painting architecture and animals, but really enjoy painting just about any subject. My “favorite” is usually what I’m currently painting or one that I just finished. I paint originals as well as accept commissions. I use vibrant colors and try to choose subjects with strong lighting contrast. I want my paintings to “pop”.

Enjoy!
Christy
