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


Paintings 45 & 46

It seems that there are two major types of artists. Type 1 is extremely meticulous & detailed. Type 2 is half-hazard & acts mainly on instinct. When it comes to art (but not really to any other part of my life), I am definitely type 2 but I greatly admire those people who have the patience & desire to go that extra mile when it comes to detail.

At the same time, I do really love something when it looks a little rough/sketchy. There's that little rebel in my head that says (in a snotty voice) "If you want it to be photographic, just take a picture." Rather close minded, I agree, but it still talks me out of spending the headache on a lace detail or the subtle texture of someone's clothing many a time.

We all love it! It is so wonderful to see the kids portrayed in such an awesome way. The kids thought they looked pretty cool too!
A copy of this painting will now be the 4th Aubstud work to hang in our home.
