New Mixed Media Original Painting

(c) Christy Tremblay 2015 All Rights Reserved

"Untitled" (for now)
Original Christy Tremblay
Mixed Media on Canvas
30 inches x 30 inches

Hello to All!

I have been busy working on this larger painting, which will be featured in my upcoming show, A Painted House A Day

I posted the first stages of this 30 inch x 30 inch works a couple of days ago. 
This is what it looked like in the early stages.

I was able to work on it some more, and am really loving how it has evolved!

Maybe a few more marks and details before I add the varnish...what do you think?

I really need to look at the painting from a far to see it as a whole. At this point I may add more marks and small details, before I add the final varnish.

This is the stage I call, "stepping back."
I wrote about the stages of painting in a previous post...How Does an Artist Know When a Painting is Done?

I think it is almost ready for varnish!



I would LOVE to hear what you think!

Stages of Creating Mixed Media Painting

I posted the picture of the beginning of my house painting I'm working on in my last blog post.
I've been working more tonight...look at the changes that have taken place!
I would say it's about 1/4 finished.
More to do!

First Stage of Painting
Adding layers of paint and medium to build up texture.
What color do you see for the house?
I have been seeing red...but as the painting evolves, I'm not sure. Have to wait and see.

What's in my Studio Today?

Thought I'd share my newest painting!
Still in progress... I just started it today.
This is a larger canvas at 30 x 30 inches and will be featured in my upcoming show, A Painted House A Day, January 24th, 2015.
I will post the final painting when it's please check back.

Artist Interview


I am excited to share this recent interview, written by author, Jenn Brink.

The article was written for the Fort Hood Officers Spouses Club Newsletter.

December’s FHOSC member spotlight is on Christy Tremblay.  Christy is an Army spouse, mother of two, and profound painter.  I met up with Christy over lunch to talk about her art and what inspires her. 

Christy, a Seattle native, says art has always been a part of her.  “I can’t remember not wanting to do art.  It’s an outlet for me.”  She met her husband, before she began painting professionally, while he was stationed at JBLM.  Next thing she knew, she had traded the stability of her childhood for life as an Army spouse.  At first, Christy taught elementary school, sometimes as an art teacher and sometimes as a teacher who used art in daily lessons.  After her oldest was born, she quit teaching and began to take her art more seriously.  Her husband, knowing that art was important to her, easily fell into it making sure that wherever they live she has her art space.


Over the years, she has taken classes and workshops to expand her talents and experimented with many different mediums.  Each phase of her journey has lended form to a style all her own.  Christy told me, “I try and see my work as an artist as always in process and working towards my long term goal of one day opening my own art studio/gallery - outside of my home.”  Her paintings tend to be abstract and mixed media.  Although she mostly utilizes canvas, paper, and wood.  She has also painted on metal and other surfaces.   


Working to find a way to expand her art, she decided to paint a house every day for six months. Christy started a blog on March 24, 2014 where she posts her day’s painting, along with a quote or statement about the painting.  It has turned into a series.  I had to ask, “Why a house?”  After consideration, Christy explained that she grew up in the same house and always thought that she would give her children the same stability.  As we all know, that is not the life we military families lead.  Her paintings reflect her feelings of what a home is and have become representative of the stability that is there for her and her family, despite moving every couple of years.  Christy believes that, “It is important to keep working on what you’re passionate about and what your goals are for the future...when we as military families get to finally settle in one spot.”


If you’re interested in seeing or purchasing the house series or other works by Christy.  She is doing a show at the Salado Winery on January 24, 2015.  She will have all 183 houses that she has painted as well as some of her larger pieces on display and for sale.  The Salado Winery plans to keep her art up and for sale through the Texas Wine and Rogue Art Festival on March 28 and into April.  You can also view her paintings online through her website

or her blog (no dot after the www)
