Red and Blue

5"x7"

Oh, the glow! Oh, the shiny roundness! I can never go but so long without returning to my marbles.

Crown

8"x16"

My little one, with three lizards on her head basking in the strange light.

Art inspires Art

5"x7"

A beautiful little pottery bowl my friend Brookestar made! I didn't do justice to her painting on it, but the lighting is quite lovely.

Water Monster

9"x12"
sold

A new painting from an old photo of my little girl, one I've been wanting to paint from forever and ever! Soft blues and such wonderful edges.

We've certainly reached the time of year where this is the most appealing time of day!

Bird of Paradise

5"x7"

I've been intimidated by the more ornate painted teacups.... trying to ease into it!

Grazing

5"x7"

Just painting something quiet and simple today :)

*sigh*

Some days (like today) my brain absolutely positively refuses to do anything like painting. Those days are frustrating.

Full Moon

sold

We needed the rain today, and I didn't mind it being cool from the rain.... but I'm still pretending to be back at the beach watching the moon over the waves.

Sketch

Julian Richlings has the most marvelous profile, and I just *had* to try a sketch of him.

As Above, So Below

12"x12"

I have been wanting to paint the underside of a skull ever since I first started collecting them- finally did it! A portrait of my two deer skulls, all beautiful brushstrokes and fascinating edges.

Blues and Gold

Oh this one is so much fun! Messy brushstrokes for a perfect little china cup.

Odalisque

Pretty, pretty brushstrokes. Naomi always wants a pear when we go to the grocery store- I managed to save one for painting, however briefly.

I think we might be getting somewhere with the brushwork thing. Also yay, painting from the garden!

Yesterday's daily had me all inspired with brushworkey magic.... and then this happened. Gr.

Eye Socket

5"x7"

I feel like it's been a while since I painted one of my skulls! So here's one with a reflecting ball in the eye socket. Don't you just love that reflection?

The Green One

5"x7"
sold

And this little critter.... I dunno. I think I want to use it in my therianthropic stuff, but I don't believe I've ever painted a lizard before, so a daily seemed like the best way to start!

Happy Boston

5"x7"
sold

Dogs are HARD to paint. A dog making a funny face? Even more so. He just looked so happy though, I had to try!
