I love my french press! And this is a fragmented little early-morning view. With bright blue, because everything is better with bright blue.

Compound Reflections

8" diameter
sold

Pretty shiny round things on a beautiful round canvas. I don't know why the circular canvases have such trouble finding homes, they're absolutely gorgeous. Ah, well.

This one..... the contrasts are wonderful! It takes a ridiculous amount of self control not to just make up details for the shadows though.

The crazymaking thing about acrylics is that you have to really, really want those soft edges, because there's no way they'll happen on their own. It's worth the deliberate pursuit though.

All these goldfish will make much more sense tomorrow, I promise. Although really goldfish paintings are their own excuse.

Black Unicorn

I feel like I read a book as a child with a black unicorn figuring prominently in it. A goat-style one, like unicorns originally were.

Blush

Oh she is just so very fancy. I need to start using wigs on my subjects more often, yes?

The English Bulldog

Sometimes all a painting needs is another coat of paint. A unifying sort of coat of paint. I do love this one, just a little twist on that old portrait of Henry VIII.

It's been a while since I've done one of these portraits, and I must say I love this one. Very striking, very magical little owl I was privileged to meet.

Ah, the season of me wishing endlessly for warmth. This came out really beautifully though, I need to plant some more tulips like this one!

The Blue Hen

My brain was being uncooperative today, so I wound up reworking an old painting I adore. Which is actually a lot of fun, and now there's a very dramatic blue chicken sitting in the studio staring at me.

Rooster

And for something completely different.... ok, not really, you've seen this particular rooster before. But I felt like I needed to relax a bit and just put something to canvas, and in this case that meant just drawing with a brush.

So.... it's an Italian Renaissance sort of portrait of a clearly magical young lady. Makes perfect sense to me.
