Hyacinths II

11"x14"

And her again, facing the other way. I am just in love with the brushwork on these two.

Hyacinths I

11"x14"

My wonderful little girl! We did her hair up in braids like Frida Kahlo and pinned in lots of beautiful pale pink hyacinths.

Shades of Blue

5"x7"

Ah, teacups.... I was planning on another daffodil, but the marble snuck in instead. I appreciate sneakiness in a marble.

Daffodil and Teacup

5"x7"

I REALLY had to flex some mental muscles on this one- some paintings just fall off the brush, and this one flatly refused. I think it's a daffodil thing. I love them, but they don't feel the same way about me.

Reflected Light

9"x12"

I have the awesomest kid ever.

Also, making props for paintings is super fun, and I really love this ruff. Having a real one is so much better than trying to imagine the stinking thing. On the other hand, I think I'll go on a daily paintings kick for a few days after this, these were a bit overwhelming!

The Blue Girl

9"x12"

It's Naomi again! I finally finished the ruff I was making, just for the purpose of sticking it on her and painting her, crazy hair and all. Just sketching here, getting used to the new subject and the crazy lighting I wound up with.... so dramatic and awesome.

Sleeping Blue

11"x14"

Back in town again, and of course the first thing I do is a sketch of my daughter. I am in love with the brushwork on this one, it kept surprising me, and the way her little hand turned out.... <3 p="">

Abalone

5"x7"

Don't mind me, I'm just sitting here waiting for the warm weather to come back.

Actually I'm going to vanish for a few days, headed down to Charlotte. But I'll be back soon, promise!

Reflected

Hm..... it's strange, I absolutely adore this one in person, but it's less interesting on a computer screen. Probably an inconvenient sort of scaling thing, that can definitely happen with the dailies...

Family

8"x16"

I think these will be the last origami pieces I do, so if you like them you need to snatch them up!

Guardians

The Secret Life of Chickens

11"x14"

I'm painting what REALLY goes on in the barnyard at night. Just so you know.

I believe that spring is finally here! I hope it comes to you soon, if it hasn't already.

Return of the Sushi

5"x7"

I'll be hiding under a mountain of blankets and waiting for spring, if anyone wants me...

Slanting Sun

Just a peaceful, beautiful little scene sketched out.
