WIP

hah! usually sharing a WIP kills the idea, so I really try not to share them too much, but this creepiness seems to be proceeding well enough :)

just an idea, at this point....

but I've been wanting to paint this thing ever since Naomi got it, and playing with the flash-lighting idea seemed like it'd be a good time to break out "Squishy"

Lemon and Vanilla

If you're wondering where the whole halo Thing is coming from..... I have no idea either, I'm just rolling with it! Same with the blue light-distortion around the cupcake itself.

Although at least the latter is actually visible....

Shades of White

I wanted to share these two together, since they're a similar theme and I painted them side by side.... funny how that sort of thing works out sometimes!

My Naomi, my little muse.... in something that might be a bit creepy :)

Sometimes the hardest part of a painting is deciding what on earth to call it! Goodness.... I just fell in love with the light :)

Just painting something familiar. It's been incredibly strange around here lately, so I guess I'm painting a skull to stead myself :)

Fawn at Dusk

16"x20"

A little fawn, caught on the trailcam just as night has finished falling- the light of the flash reflecting on bright eyes, horns all soft and velvety. Something magical.

Still experimenting with my little dailies :)
And very much trapped in the house. Geez, I wish my truck wasn't stuck in the ditch.... and that it was springtime. Springtime would be AWESOME.

Bright

Something pretty, to take my mind off the psycho Snowpocalypse thing. My truck is in a ditch and will most likely stay there till Monday when we can get a tow truck on site, and I won't be able to do the Carrboro Art Walk at Steel String Brewery on Friday like I wanted to....
But I am home, and warm, and we still have electricity, and that's a lot to be grateful for. Love y'all/

So this is.... different. And very interesting. And a lesson in why I love the whole daily painting Thing- it encourages experimentation!

I love this painting so much! My little muse, and so much mystery....

Portrait of Albie Mahone

36"x36"

Check this gentleman out! I dropped him off at Steel String Brewery in Carrboro today when I picked up Revelation to get her to her new home....
If you're interested in this painting you can email me at kelliemarianhill@yahoo.com . He is $400, but I am NOT planning on shipping something this size (USPS shipping becomes extremely expensive past 24") so we'll need to be able to meet up to get him to you :)
