So very very blue. I don't know what came over my brushes with this one.... I think we were overwhelmed to have an egg from an easter egger chicken, instead of a brown egg!

This is an odd little experiment.... of course the origami crane is a familiar Thing, but the little cartoon clouds.... I'm trying to decide how I feel about them, but I'm thinking they're adorable.

Blonde

The textures came out perfect for this one! I wanted to do something delicate and really rounded, but sticking with a very narrow (for me) range of values. Mission accomplished!

Cherries in a Shot Glass

Just because I was really wanting to paint some fruit. Besides, cherries have the shiny and round thing going for them, and fit nicely inside tiny shot glasses.

I've got the strangest feeling that this little critter wants a fedora. Unfortunately I have no incredibly tiny fedoras.

I didn't really know where this one was going, so I of course don't know whether it got there or not.... but painting my daughter as a mermaid is always nice!

Crown of Stars

12"x12"
click here to purchase

I tried really, really hard to  do something different with this one, and I believe I succeeded! I didn't add any white to her skin, making sure that the stars are the brightest points in the painting- she still glows, but in a different way, which makes the whole thing stronger. At least that's the idea.

Ok, so I posed my favorite mirrored marble *on* a mirror, and just kindof went from there into a strange and intricate world.

Sometimes....

Sometimes a painting just doesn't get any love, but you're proud of it and enjoy it. And maybe I won't be painting any more Bone Tea pieces, but I am definitely enjoying having this monster up in my living room!

The Red Couch

Well here is something completely outside of my comfort zone, especially for a daily! The light was so wonderful I just couldn't resist, and now I'm trying to decide if my endlessly layered brushstrokes make it all more tangible or just feel confused....
