Little still life of a peach, and the skull of a lesser crested dragon. Always nice to bring a little extra magic into a painting.

Pretty pretty peach. Just look at those colors, and the fruit itself feels so round.... I don't know what I would do without daily paintings, there's something so gratifying about them.

I found a peach with the most adorable little butt and just HAD to paint it! This is going to look amazing in someone's kitchen.

The Storyteller

8"x10"
private collection

I just had to try to paint him.... although the whole thing is way outside my comfort zone. I love the way the delicate little crosshatched strokes come together though.

Wow. This one was HARD. I now know why I've never been prone to painting calicos.... plus the weird angle and the very vivid blue and just the everything. All things considered she came out ok.

This one is inspired by my sister and my daughter playing with sparklers on the Fourth. They were really beautiful.

Floating

My cousin, floating.... I wish I'd painted it so much larger, but there's something so nice and impressionistic about her at this size.

Evening Dahlia

My dahlias have started blooming so much earlier this year, and they are beautiful. The pollinators adore them, too. This particular beauty was leaning out from the rest of the group, right at eye level....

I decided to play with complementary colors today- don't you just love how bright it is?

Yay, beautiful watermelons at the farmers' market! It will be a while before the ones in my yard are ripe, I'm afraid.

Poppy Mandala

I'm really kindof in love with this one- these flowers are just so ridiculous and gorgeous, they look like magic or sea anemones or something. Seemed like the perfect subject for a precious little circular canvas.

On the one hand, chickens are wonderfully ridiculous. On the other, I am very grateful to be bigger than them.

Something beautiful. The bee balm is blooming, and the bees are loving it (as the name implies) and it just had to be painted.

You have no idea how badly I want a mature apricot tree in my yard.... they're such stunning fruits.

The Faun

8"x10"
commissioned portrait

And this one.... I need to paint my kidlet with antlers again, I can't believe it but it has been a little while since my last one. And the reflective eyes, those are always a favorite thing of mine.

Sugar Smile

8"x10"
commissioned portrait

And isn't this just the sweetest thing? I can't believe they were actually a commission, with the skull makeup and the horns and all but I LOVE it.

The Unicorn

8"x10"
commissioned portrait

And this one is just too sweet. Really, who doesn't want to be a unicorn? A unicorn with pigtails, no less.

Bright Eyes

8"x10"
commissioned portrait

Just look at that smile! And the pigtails. And, ok, just the everything.

Peculiar poultry. That's the theme of things lately. I figure that if a rooster could have glow in the dark bits, he would totally go for it.

I am so in love with this one. Just the everything. Maybe all my things should be brushy sketches with a really detailed passage.

Berries in June

8"x10"
click here to purchase

Honestly, I've got mixed feelings about this one. On the one hand, it feels like a really strong piece, the light and the colors and the textures and all..... on the other, it's so sketched out, there's a million details that could be added.... but would they make it a better painting, or just satisfy the fiddler in me? I think the latter. So. Bold brushy scrumbly strawberries.

No really, somebody needs to fall desperately in love with this gorgeous donut painting and adopt it. I'm now wanting to go out in the morning and get even more donuts to paint.

Just a pretty swimmy thing.... that you've seen before, yes, but she didn't sell so I played with her some more and now she's up again!

Wings and Horns

8"x10"
sold

And this one, again for the Where the Wild Things Are show.... is a wild thing. I thought about titling it The Artist's Daughter As A Harpy, but chickened out. She does have a halo though. And bright awesome yellow eyes because that's what all the monsters in the book have!
