And one I finished a little while back, but I don't believe I've shared before....

Back in town again, tired and happy, and getting back in the groove of painting! There's a commissioned portrait I *really* wanted to finish before I left, and I'm determined to get her right now.... and so many new paintings I want to do, and dailies of course.... all that wonderful stuff.

Anywho. Florida was awesome. As was South Carlina, and Georgia, and Alabama. And lots of driving time, including driving in Atlanta- yikes! And I'm almost 100% certain none of us caught the flesh eating bacteria, despite hours and hours and hours spent splashing around in the Gulf of Mexico. Just heard about that, but I don't feel like I'm being consumed by flesh eating bacteria, so that's what I'm going with.

Love to you all! More pretty pics to share tomorrow!

and another Commissioned Portrait

isn't she just the cutest thing?

Something strange, for me.... more of an idea than anything else. do you think it came through?

Either way, I'm headed out of town first thing in the morning! I will be back next week, most likely with many beautiful figure sketches and seascapes. Love to you all!

What a glorious time of year it it! So many amazing textures and colors, just there all around us :) Had a magical time at the farmers market this morning, as you can see. This was an amazingly huge tomato.

and this one might be done....

.... but of course I'm not sure, and I have no idea what to call her anyways. I'll most likely end up with "The Artist's Cousin at Dusk" or something :)

My bee balm patch is full of bumblebees! That makes me happy. And willing to go seriously outside my comfort zone with this little daily.... there's so much left completely unspecified in it....

And this is why I love having a garden. Painting what comes from your own garden.... it's just magic.

Braid

I've been able to put hair up in a braid for so long, it seems like I would just know how to paint it- definitely not the case!
