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.

Warbler

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.

Rooster Napoleon

commission

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.

Minnows

Last one for the Strange Dreams Collective's August auction- a beautiful fluffy mermaid and a shimmering, twisting school of fish. Warm glowing water. Love it.

Last Leap

8"x10"

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.

Having fun, painting a beautiful horned woman. Always nice when I can get someone like her to pose for me- almost all of my favorite textures and shapes together.

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

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.

Barn Cat

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.

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.

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....
