Well, here we are 2016!

Happy New Year to you dear friends!  I love starting the new year with a clean slate.  Writing goals, cleaning out drawers, throwing junk away and so forth.  Do you do this?  It makes me feel so good.  I actually went to Costco yesterday and saw this book, The life-changing magic of tiding up-the Japanese art of decluttering and organizing by Marie Kondo.  Well I had to buy it!  What better way to start the year.  I can’t wait to read it and watch my life change……not….but maybe!  Think about joining me on this adventure.


Happy New Year laura k aiken studio


I will be starting my daily painting again for 2016 beginning today…it will be late tonight when I post.  This year I get to start on day 1 of 2016.  Please help encourage me…I will need all the help I can get.  They will be 6×6 paintings on 8×8 paper.  I am trying to simplify this time.  These will be affordable original paintings.  Join me want you?  You can receive a daily email to your inbox by signing up here.

I also want to take time to thank each and everyone of you.  You have been my inspiration and my supporters and have lead me where I am today in my creative world.  Thank you , thank you.

Best days to you

Misty Blues and Cool Turquoise Abstract Original Painting

I have been playing around with my new mockup tool from creative market. It’s tons of fun. I did find it had a learning curve but that is ok…I am a slow learner and can take it all in! Ha!

Misty Blues and Cool Turquoise Abstract Original Painting by Laura K. Aiken

It’s hard for me as an artist to find a way to present their work in a natural setting with correct lighting. I feel like now I have found the closet that I will get by creating with the Mockup Creator. What really got my attention was the gray cat. If you know me you know my fur-baby is gray just like this one. Hey…I can even have blonde hair. I think it really shows off Mystic Blue and Cool Teal Abstract painting too. This makes a beautiful print. Original has been sold. T
Thanks for coming by today.





Miss Bonnie the Bloodhound
