This one might look familiar.... I don't care, not even a little bit. It's an amazing little painting.

Golden Feathers

The more I paint chickens, the more they look like dinosaurs.... but doesn't she just have the prettiest feathers you've ever seen?

Blonde

5"x7"

The textures came out perfect for this one! I wanted to do something delicate and really rounded, but sticking with a very narrow (for me) range of values. Mission accomplished!

Cherries in a Shot Glass

5"x7"

Just because I was really wanting to paint some fruit. Besides, cherries have the shiny and round thing going for them, and fit nicely inside tiny shot glasses.

Descent

sold

And for this one, the light comes from the opposite direction.... love it. I kindof hope they sell together, they would look so amazing side by side on a wall!

A much better goldfish than the one from yesterday. Look at the light! The scales!

This is a new thing for me! I quite love it though. Taking my whole Thing with eggs and mysterious creatures into the third dimension.

Blue Panda

I've got the strangest feeling that this little critter wants a fedora. Unfortunately I have no incredibly tiny fedoras.

Underwater Constellations

9"x12"

I didn't really know where this one was going, so I of course don't know whether it got there or not.... but painting my daughter as a mermaid is always nice!

Crown of Stars

12"x12"

I tried really, really hard to  do something different with this one, and I believe I succeeded! I didn't add any white to her skin, making sure that the stars are the brightest points in the painting- she still glows, but in a different way, which makes the whole thing stronger. At least that's the idea.
