I've been intimidated by the more ornate painted teacups.... trying to ease into it!

*sigh*

Some days (like today) my brain absolutely positively refuses to do anything like painting. Those days are frustrating.

We needed the rain today, and I didn't mind it being cool from the rain.... but I'm still pretending to be back at the beach watching the moon over the waves.

I have been wanting to paint the underside of a skull ever since I first started collecting them- finally did it! A portrait of my two deer skulls, all beautiful brushstrokes and fascinating edges.

Pretty, pretty brushstrokes. Naomi always wants a pear when we go to the grocery store- I managed to save one for painting, however briefly.

I feel like it's been a while since I painted one of my skulls! So here's one with a reflecting ball in the eye socket. Don't you just love that reflection?

And this little critter.... I dunno. I think I want to use it in my therianthropic stuff, but I don't believe I've ever painted a lizard before, so a daily seemed like the best way to start!

Dogs are HARD to paint. A dog making a funny face? Even more so. He just looked so happy though, I had to try!

I have the most wonderful little kidlet ever.... and she is growing up so fast. Also, I drive myself insane painting these crazy-dark pieces that are impossible to photograph!

It's been raining and raining and raining..... and while I know the plants are taking it as a wonderful spring rain, it feels like a dreary winter one to me, trapped in the house. So I'm painting beautiful shiny tools and waiting for the sun to come back.
