Michele Levani I LOVE it!!! Merry Christmas! ❤🎄
Dropping by ART ON THE SQUARE this evening, finally. Excited to see the space & your work!
I didn't get a picture of her reaction because she hates pictures but my mom LOVES her picture of Ethel Grace! Tears were shed! Thank you so much for this beautiful painting. It is a gift she will cherish forever! ❤🐾
Just caught you on WCSC, Michele Levani! Nice!

Opening an email and seeing a smiling face like this is a great start to my Monday morning! Thank you @abbybezar for sending me these photos of your dad holding the portraits of Cooper and Ozzie!
Actually, because of some kind of glitch in modern technology, I almost didn’t get to paint Ozzie… There are just so many ways to message me now. It can be really confusing. A potential client can send me an IG message, a FB message, via my website contact page, through Google business, text messages or phone calls, WhatsApp, LinkedIn and the list continues! Honestly, it can be very overwhelming! Everything is supposed to be set to notify me by email. However, I recently discovered that I had 6 pending messages requesting a pet portrait that I had never seen. Somehow they were floating in the “cloud”. It turned out that those lost messages were over a year old, from 2020. Fortunately, once I discovered them, I reached out and was able to make contact with 3 of those 6 people. This was one of them! Abigail had actually received a portrait of Cooper from the company that contracts me for pet portraits, but she wanted another portrait painted of Ozzie for her dad. So, she Googled my signature and found me online. Though it took over a year to finally hear from me, thanks to her patience, we have a happy ending and I have a very satisfied client!

Btw, the most successful way to contact me is my business email, [email protected] 👍🏼

You’ve gotta love a company that discovers a flaw in the design of their product and then contacts you to replace it!
Not only does Golden Artist Colors make the best acrylic paint, in my opinion, but they sent me their new designed caps for their paint tubes because they learned that the caps were breaking. I had experienced it with several of my tubes, but instead of letting them know, I just stored those tubes in ziplock baggies so they wouldn’t dry out. The quality of GAC paints are so excellent that it didn’t matter to me if their caps were broken. Anyway, I received an email asking if I had broken caps and how many. A few weeks later, a package arrived with new caps for my tubes. Now that’s customer service! Thank you Golden Artist Colors!

I finished laying down the foundations for my next large (16”x20”) pet portrait of a Norfolk Terrier today. At this stage of painting, my portraits tend to look very abstract, just for the first few layers, but gradually they evolve into detailed, realistic, almost 3D, the goal for most of my portraits. I’m excited to watch this little guy come to life over the next few days!

Did you notice that I did something a bit different this week and brightened up most of the backgrounds on these portraits? Although, painting these adorable faces always makes me smile, I’ve been dealing with some personal stress lately so I decided to paint more colorful, cheery backgrounds to help keep my spirits up. Color does so much for our moods. My favorite color is really purple, anything from violet to raspberry to plum. Those colors really do make me feel happy.
I have to also add that I’m very thankful for the ability to be able to create art, and especially do it for a living, because art is truly therapy. Being able to draw and paint has helped me deal with so many things throughout my life. Art is my drug of choice to deal with any inner pain and anxiety! I’m sure that if you’re an artist, you would agree with me.
It seems that everyone I know is going through something major in their lives right now. I really hope that when those ones look at my art, it will bring them smiles and help brighten their day as well! This is my wish for all of you!
Have a happy weekend!

Finished up this bizzness and ready for delivery! These new painted beehives are for The Citadel Beekeepers Club. I painted 8 Langstroth hives and created a new logo for their T-shirts and merch. I started painting beehives a few years ago when one of my art clients… and now longtime friend, approached me about painting his beehives. He introduced me to an entire new community of beekeepers and I soon came to be called @thebeehippie
Thank you, Bee Nerd! @littlewingapiary @charlestonareabeekeepers

Time to pause for a short break from painting this portrait… and throw a load of laundry in the wash! Those are the perks of having my own art studio and working from my home… Cons? Not brushing my hair and painting in my pjs…
As an artist, I really enjoy what I’m doing and it’s hard to know when to stop working. I try to be balanced and keep the same work hours as my husband, but occasionally, I can be just a bit of a workaholic and my husband will remind me that I really need to take a break… and also brush my hair… Anyone else work full time from home? What are your pros and cons?

Making a lot of progress on this commission of a monochromatic portrait. I first created a mid-tone wash over the entire 16x20 stretched cotton canvas. After laying out the entire composition, I then identified the values. Now I’m layering inks with acrylics, which is a method that I commonly use… but this time…only shades of grey. Later today, I’ll post the final results!

My next commission is really an extra special one…
Not only are the subjects beautiful, but it’s a monochromatic painting and there are no animals in this portrait. I’ll be posting progress photos over the next few days of this 16”x 20” painting.

Michele Levani Art

Welcome to my traveling art studio!
​You see my studio does not always have 4 walls. It's a constant changing environment. I live a very nomadic lifestyle and find inspiration for my artwork in a variety of locations. The majority of time, I'll be exploring and painting on site somewhere in the beautiful, coastal region of Charleston, South Carolina. With Charleston's stunning architecture, marshes, wildlife and tropical plants... from dockside to plantations and sand to sea, an artist will never run out of inspiration.
​I'll introduce you to this beautiful city (and wherever else my nomadic spirit carries me) with my easel in tote! Along the way, I'll share with you my favorite art supplies and techniques.
​So grab your brushes and paints and come join me! Explore your inner artist and create!
