New Art: Back to School & Dream Big!

 I was inspired to create "Back to School" by this bittersweet time of year.  Tomorrow my daughters and I all head back to school.  We enjoy school/work, but hate saying goodbye to summer.  In "Back to School," I was able to incorporate bits and pieces of my daughters' homework and my kindergarteners' drawings into my collage.  Wishing everyone a great first day back to school! 

Earlier this summer, I kept having dreams where I would run to the shore to see a whale playfully surfacing in the ocean.  I decided this meant that big creative ideas were about to surface for me!  This dream inspired my new colorful collage "Dream Big!"

 Don't forget to come by Del Ray Artisans this month for the "It Runs in the Family" show!  The Tury Family Portrait will be on display.  The show runs Sept. 7th through 30th, with an opening reception on Sept. 7th from 7-10 p.m.  See you there!


  1. I love your piece back to school, the colors are bright and lovely, I've been wanting to paint something for my nephew and see this piece has me inspired, color wise.
