Fruit Tart on White


Om nom nom! I just love all the beautiful colors in these! This is an updated old daily, though, I changed the color and feel of the background and now I love the shadow.... also went through and added some more detail and life to the fruit and really the whole tart. I have to confess, I love repainting paintings.

Black and White


Coffee! Or espresso. Something caffeine-ey at any rate, and therefore something I personally won't (it's kindof "can't" but not quite, so I guess I have to go with "won't"....) drink, but I know people love it.... and it's pretty. Pretty goes a long way, with me :)

Yellow Lollipop


Why oh why do banks give kids stuff like this?

The answer I'm going to go with is that they do it to give me new and interesting things to paint :) I hope you all had a wonderful Saturday!

Another one that I made some changes to.... actually, a lot of changes to... so I could share it again! What is it with us artists and skulls, anyways?

Lemon Slice and Shadow


If this one looks a smidge familiar, that's ok- I was flipping through my dailies and just couldn't believe that this one hadn't sold, I love it! So I did some reworking and fiddling, and I am sharing the new version now :) I'm also working on an interesting portrait inspired by van der Weyden's Portrait of a Lady, and I wanted to share it as a WIP, but sharing works in progress sometimes seems to curse them, and I REALLY don't want that. I'll share all the steps once she's done, promise.

Blue Halter


Oh my goodness- can it be? A daily painting!
Just trying to get back in the saddle again after all the busyness.... please excuse the pun. And the possible spelling error (busyness?). I'm sleepy, and have also started in on a celebratory milk-and-frangelico :)

No idea where this one is going, so I should probably cast it aside while I still have time, and worry about it after the show.... I doubt I can though :)

Just having some fun with this one! Nests are a personal symbol or something, I guess- these things that keep popping up in my art without me planning for them :)

commissioned portrait...

and isn't it fun? This one was an interesting challenge, because I was working from a picture of her as a little boy... a friend of mine commissioned this for her wife, who has "transitioned" to being a woman- so thoughtful of her, and I'm glad I could be a part of it :)

Bees are awesome.... I really want to get some! I've planted so many flowers I think they'd be happy here.



Cute little owl at night....
