Fairest of Them All

9"x12"
sold

Two tiny rulers of all they survey. I am absolutely in love with the light on this one!

Self Portrait as a Glutton

8"x16"
sold

This is also part of the 7 Deadly Sins exhibit with the Strange Dreams Artist Collective- going back to some old favorites, with the cupcakes and fruit tart and chocolate and of course all the marbles. I've got a weak spot for self portraits hidden in marbles.

Gold Scales in the Shallows

16"x20"

This is part of the 7 Deadly Sins exhibit I'm in with the Strange Dreams Artist Collective.... and I am more than a little in love with it. Two mermaids in the shallows, surprised by the beam of a flashlight in the night....

Depths

11"x14"

And here we somehow wound up with a diving helmet with an anglerfish attachment. Which is brilliant. Last scuba chicken for a while though, I think....

And now presenting- TWO scuba chickens. My mind is a strange place to be.

Cuttlefish

I took the kidlet to a museum that had cuttlefish in an aquarium. They're friggin adorable.

Shallows

9"x12"

This little gildfish has bubbled up closer to the surface, where the light shines through.

Bubbles

11"x14"
sold

Another one with a propeller! And the spooky blue lighting, I am thoroughly enjoying that.

Angler

11"x14" 

I thought it was high time I did a gildfish that really, really looked like the anglerfish inspiration!

Just having some fun in the gildfish department :)

Bird's Nest

12"x12"

I'm just wallowing in textures, at the moment. And beautiful sunlight.

Blonde

9"x12"

There's just a hint of autumn in the air, and the sunlight is beautiful.

Flyaways

11"x14"
sold

After yesterday's bee I realized how to resolve this painting! Also my love of Bill Carman's work almost certainly played a part in it as well. Just a magical, wonderful painting of my Little One.

The Bee

5"x7"
sold

A close-up portrait of a tremendous teddy-bear sort of bee that was in my passionflowers. Kindof an odd painting, but I thoroughly enjoy it.

Bright Morning

5"x7"

So.... I just finished reading a biography about Whistler and ended up painting a sort of Symphony in White Thing. And there's something incredibly peaceful about it all.

Low Tide at Dusk

5"x7"
sold

Just thinking about the ocean tonight.

Dress Up

8"x10"

There was a child at a performance we went to, playing dress up in the audience before the show.... it was very striking! Actually several of them were running around with blankets tied around them like this.

Glance Back

Just a little sketch. Yes, she really does have that much hair, it's amazing.

This is a previous daily that I decided to rework- lots of fun with this one!

Abalone

5"x7"

Another shiny thing. Also I seem to be really, really into blues lately. Which contrast beautifully with that little curl of red around the edge.

Rounded Things

5"x7"

Yep, you've seen this one before. I'm glad it didn't sell though, sometimes redoing a painting improves it so much! That dark background making everything pop, and the added dimensions on the egg, and the added shine on the marble....
