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


Santa Monica Plein Air No. 1

So I took my newly arrived french easel out for the first time...and discovered that plein air painting is the bomb. Of course it helps that I was in Santa Monica Park above the bluffs -in the sun and the ocean breeze- looking down on the beach.

Yes. Be jealous.

Also, I work much more quickly than anticipated and will need to get some canvases that are bit larger for next month. Anyways, here is the first result of my independent plein air adventures:

6"x6" acrylic on 1.5" depth gallery wrap canvas
purchase here for $25

The tire tracks left in the sand and the abstract lines/shapes that they form are interesting. Will possibly have to explore that aspect of the beach further at a later date.
