Evening Dahlia

8"x16"
sold

My dahlias have started blooming so much earlier this year, and they are beautiful. The pollinators adore them, too. This particular beauty was leaning out from the rest of the group, right at eye level....

I decided to play with complementary colors today- don't you just love how bright it is?

Watermelon on Blue

5"x7"
sold

Yay, beautiful watermelons at the farmers' market! It will be a while before the ones in my yard are ripe, I'm afraid.

Poppy Mandala

8" diameter

I'm really kindof in love with this one- these flowers are just so ridiculous and gorgeous, they look like magic or sea anemones or something. Seemed like the perfect subject for a precious little circular canvas.

The Search

5"x7"
sold

On the one hand, chickens are wonderfully ridiculous. On the other, I am very grateful to be bigger than them.

The Magic of a Flower

8"x10"

Something beautiful. The bee balm is blooming, and the bees are loving it (as the name implies) and it just had to be painted.

Apricot Curves

5"x7"
sold

You have no idea how badly I want a mature apricot tree in my yard.... they're such stunning fruits.

The Faun

8"x10"
commissioned portrait

And this one.... I need to paint my kidlet with antlers again, I can't believe it but it has been a little while since my last one. And the reflective eyes, those are always a favorite thing of mine.

Sugar Smile

8"x10"
commissioned portrait

And isn't this just the sweetest thing? I can't believe they were actually a commission, with the skull makeup and the horns and all but I LOVE it.

The Unicorn

8"x10"
commissioned portrait

And this one is just too sweet. Really, who doesn't want to be a unicorn? A unicorn with pigtails, no less.

Bright Eyes

8"x10"
commissioned portrait

Just look at that smile! And the pigtails. And, ok, just the everything.

The Display

11"x14"
sold

Peculiar poultry. That's the theme of things lately. I figure that if a rooster could have glow in the dark bits, he would totally go for it.

The Piper

8"x10"
private collection

I am so in love with this one. Just the everything. Maybe all my things should be brushy sketches with a really detailed passage.

A Closer Look

5"x7"
sold

And here we have proof that chickens are dinosaurs. Or maybe ballet dancers.

Boston Cream

5"x7"
sold

*om nom nom nom*

I mean really, the paint on this looks delicious. Just rich and brushy and awesome.

Wait, what? The subject matter?

Sunny Day

sold

And I give you.... the return of the impressionist chickens!

Berries in June

8"x10"
sold

Honestly, I've got mixed feelings about this one. On the one hand, it feels like a really strong piece, the light and the colors and the textures and all..... on the other, it's so sketched out, there's a million details that could be added.... but would they make it a better painting, or just satisfy the fiddler in me? I think the latter. So. Bold brushy scrumbly strawberries.

Glazed Chocolate

5"x7"
sold

*om nom nom*

No really, somebody needs to fall desperately in love with this gorgeous donut painting and adopt it. I'm now wanting to go out in the morning and get even more donuts to paint.

The Blue

5"x7"
sold

Just a pretty swimmy thing.... that you've seen before, yes, but she didn't sell so I played with her some more and now she's up again!

Wings and Horns

8"x10"
sold

And this one, again for the Where the Wild Things Are show.... is a wild thing. I thought about titling it The Artist's Daughter As A Harpy, but chickened out. She does have a halo though. And bright awesome yellow eyes because that's what all the monsters in the book have!

A Forest Grew

11"x14"
sold

I did this painting for the themed auction for "Where the Wild Things Are" and I do so love how the whole themed group painting thing is pushing me to explore new things. I love the atmosphere of this one!
