Hi! I'm Aubrey.

Hi! I'm Aubrey.
I am an artist based in LA (but from the good 'ol Midwest). This blog is a record of my life as a painter/artist. It is here to help me keep my place and motivation, ground me to learning and be a connection to other artists.

If you are interested in purchasing existing work, please visit my etsy site here. If you are interested in commissioning an original artwork, e-mail me at aubrey.studebaker@gmail.com


A lady at work asked me to do this painting from a picture (another commission piece!) Screaming, newly-birthed infant- what more can I say? (o:

Painting #18
(graphite & ink drawing + watercolor)


It is time to be honest. I have failed to complete a painting every week...In fact I'm quite a few weeks behind at the moment. The past month and a half has been very, very busy. It has been one of those busy times when there is barely time to do things like fold the laundry and clean the bathroom, let alone call friends to catch-up or paint.

That being said I have not given up on the goal of completing 52 paintings in 2010. A good motivation for me has always been to make a list, so here are the paintings that (I promise) are on the way:
1) 4-5 paintings of rainy/fuzzy Ohio landscape
>lots of mushy greens & blues
2) an impressionistic painting of the Starship Enterprise
>this is per my husband's request for cubicle decor (tee hee)
3) large, 30"x40" COMMISSIONED (WOOT WOOT) painting for my friend Chrissy
>have not decided even remotely what this will be of yet; need to do some small thumbnail paintings first
>Chrissy has given me a lot of freedom, just asking for me to incorporate green
4) paintings of lake George
>Northern Indiana Lake George, not the NY one
>to be completed while on vacation there last week in July; would like to do some open air painting instead of from pics as I usually do
>will include water, scenery & hopefully some portraits of I can get someone to sit still long enough (o:

Enough blibber blabber. Here is painting #17:
