Based loosely on La Bella Principessa, but with a lovely lady of another species standing in. Doesn't she have the most lovely eyes?

Red and Gold

5"x7"

If I know one thing, it's that the world needs more floating pears.

Red Flag

5"x7"

He may look a bit familiar.... sometimes a painting really should sell, but doesn't. So it gets a little bit repainted and then comes back around. Isn't he just fabulous?

Toyses.




5"x7" each

Painting the kidlet's toys again! Definitely fun subjects.

Lady in Pearls

Awash with Light

Whiskers

5"x7"

I met a very pretty horsey. I'll be painting her for a few days!

Dancer

5"x7"

Tried something different here, black inkwashes to build up the whole painting and then going very lightly over it all with the colors. Love the effect,

An alpaca. I think they're going to use their Cuteness to take over the planet.

Polka Dots

5"x7"
sold

More cuteness, inspired by the kidlet. My favorite animal when I was her age was a giraffe too.

Buttons

5"x7"

And here is..... adorable proof that having a kidlet definitely influences your subject matter when it comes to painting.

Just revisiting the deer.... in a very impressionist little way.

Professor Cthulhu

11"x14"

I, um.... may have just painted Cthulhu with freckles and wearing a bow tie and watch chain. Lol. Do you think I ought to hang his portrait next to the one of his daughter?

Mother and Child

5"x7"

Just a strange little sketch- the way the hair whorls around on their faces, the horns, the calf's little tongue.

Tuesday, October 20, 2015

Halo

12"x12"

This is not the painting I planned at all, but my little one just turned six and is thinking about cutting her pigtails off, and I wound up painting her in profile and making it all about her hair and her little baby face. And the glow all around her.

In Front of the Light

5"x7"

This is an interesting one, what with trying to make the water very flowy and transparent, and the fish very opaque. Thankfully the fish was a very cooperative model!
