After yesterday's bee I realized how to resolve this painting! Also my love of Bill Carman's work almost certainly played a part in it as well. Just a magical, wonderful painting of my Little One.

The Bee

A close-up portrait of a tremendous teddy-bear sort of bee that was in my passionflowers. Kindof an odd painting, but I thoroughly enjoy it.

So.... I just finished reading a biography about Whistler and ended up painting a sort of Symphony in White Thing. And there's something incredibly peaceful about it all.

There was a child at a performance we went to, playing dress up in the audience before the show.... it was very striking! Actually several of them were running around with blankets tied around them like this.

Another shiny thing. Also I seem to be really, really into blues lately. Which contrast beautifully with that little curl of red around the edge.

Yep, you've seen this one before. I'm glad it didn't sell though, sometimes redoing a painting improves it so much! That dark background making everything pop, and the added dimensions on the egg, and the added shine on the marble....

Simple little egg painting, that I'm super proud of- the contrasts all came out so nice. Value, color, texture.... especially texture. It's always especially texture.

This is what happens when I take the kidlet to the Museum of Natural Sciences, I end up painting really intricate, lovely, sad little paintings. The texture on the feathers, and the delicate little feet.... I learn so much on paintings like this.

Now this, this was a wonderfully fun commission. Don't you just adore his little outfit? Rhode Island Red rooster, and far too big for his britches.

Last Leap

This is a very carefully done study of a fish left behind on the shore by some sort of creature, most likely a raccoon. The textures are amazing and I learned a lot by painting it! Available as part of the August auction for the Strange Dreams Collective.

Water Horse

11"x14"

This is up for auction as part of the Strange Dreams Collective's August auction- the theme was Under the Sea, which is absolutely my jam. Of course. Also I read Scorpio Races out loud to the kidlet so of course I had to paint another water horse.
