Coming back inside for a few still life dailies. Cherries are always wonderful fun to paint, and I found some beautiful ones.

The Bird and the Fish In Love

16"x20"

A bird may love a fish, but where would they live? Obviously, they'd both get super useful helmets and trade off in each other's worlds.

Reflecting

Yes, it's a painting on a brick. Which is IMPOSSIBLE to photograph, by the way. I don't know how the other artists are doing it.

What other artists, you ask? Why the 149 other artists who are also donating paintings to BUILD HOPE NOT WALLS. Which is a Totally Awesome Thing you should definitely check out!

Winged Stag

This one feels really special. Probably in part because of the square composition and the fact that I finally managed to successfully use to metal leaf!

Two White Deer

5"x7"
sold

I always feel like I need to say something about the painting, but really I'm not much good at saying things about my paintings, the whole point is that they exist as something visual, not verbal. It's more open.

Not my usual thing at all, I know, but I had an idea that just wouldn't go away.

Junebug



Obviously I painted this little critter MUCH larger than life! I held them up a couple inches from my eyes and just..... worked over and out.... it gives the whole painted bug a really cool, mobile quality I think. And I never really know what something looks like until I've painted it, so it's always a cool experience with something new!

I love watching the hummingbirds in my garden- they are wonderfully curious creatures.
