Hi everyone, I have decidedly spread myself too thin! I now have many different blogs going and can not keep up with them, so I am going to stop adding to this one at all and maintain my two main blogs which are www.heatherchontos.com and my inspiration image blog for my new venture "milkfarmroad.com"which is on tumblr, www.heatherchontos.tumblr.com
I am on twitter at chontos studio where all of my updates continuously show up. Come and subscribe to heatherchontos.com or follow me on twitter for all my latest updates and images.
Happy Holidays everyone!

New work available in limited edition prints, FINALLY!

Hi everyone, I know that I might be the worst blogger in the world, but I have been quite busy making new work and traveling for shoots this last year. I re-designed heatherchontos.com and am starting "milk farm road" which will be an interior design consultancy and online shop!
so.. now just in time for the holidays I have found a great printer and have created limited edition prints of 21 pieces. They will be 16 x 20 and the prices will range from $175 to $400.
I will be setting up an online shop on my website and this blog the first week of October. There will only be 10 prints made of each painting and they will be numbered and signed.
Here is a sneak preview at what some of the work will be. Some of it has not been seen before, hope you like it!

thanks for a lovely dinner

I had dinner at romans last night with my dear friend Dimity Jones, a talented mother and a designer and a designated foodie with amazing taste.
I just wanted to post her blog up on here because she is amazing and so is her work. Check it out.
We had an incredible meal and I sat by candlelight and held my iphone over our plates and bowl to give  a little extra light so she could shoot everything we ate, keep your eyes posted for some grilled squid salad and bucatini al sarde on her blog, that was our dinner at "Romans" my favorite restaurant in Brooklyn!!!!

New work showing in Montana

I am happy to say that I will be showing some work in Montana this week, in two places! I will be showing in Missoula and Bozeman at two very different, but fabulous locations! In Missoula they do first fridays of each month and it is an art walk through downtown at all the local businesses and my friend Rhea owns a great training studio and we are hanging the work there. It is such a great space! I will be hanging huge canvases there...
And then in Bozeman I will be showing lots of smaller works on paper at an old mill. It is a beautiful space too. You can read more about the "Miscal Gallery" which has its first opening friday and I am proud to be their first previewed artist.
Check out the link and here is some of the work..

A gallery of work

This past year I have painted and drawn on a variety of surfaces, collaged with candy wrappers and antique flash cards, and sewn paper and fabric together to make huge paintings.
Here are some of my favorites

just some normal every day stuff

I am in a small town in Michigan shooting with Country Living this week and back home Sunday. I miss my little family and was thinking that I would share some photos I have been taking of them over the last few months here. My two beautiful daughters could be the most amazing works of art I have ever taken part in creating adn I am just lucky to have such an amazing boyfriend I am back home sunday night and will be getting back to work on some new paintings or should I say finishing some new paintings, but for now, some gorgeous faces, afterall they are a huge part of my inspiration to make things in general.
