Cracked

Simple little egg painting, that I'm super proud of- the contrasts all came out so nice. Value, color, texture.... especially texture. It's always especially texture.

Warbler

5"x7"

This is what happens when I take the kidlet to the Museum of Natural Sciences, I end up painting really intricate, lovely, sad little paintings. The texture on the feathers, and the delicate little feet.... I learn so much on paintings like this.

Rooster Napoleon

Now this, this was a wonderfully fun commission. Don't you just adore his little outfit? Rhode Island Red rooster, and far too big for his britches.

Last Leap

This is a very carefully done study of a fish left behind on the shore by some sort of creature, most likely a raccoon. The textures are amazing and I learned a lot by painting it! Available as part of the August auction for the Strange Dreams Collective.
