Remember I was complaining that the oil paint company I buy my paints from discontinued a color I had come to rely on? It was a while ago. Have you noticed its absence in my paintings? I have. I bought other colors in the color list that looked like they might do the same thing,Continue reading “every color of the rainbow”
I have for so long wanted to offer pendants showing off images of my paintings. I’ve experimented with this and that trying to get it just right, because I only want to have quality things for sale, and had a lot of wasted effort when the result wasn’t nice enough. But I’ve kept plugging awayContinue reading “something new: pendants”
Remember I said I was going to try and paint people? Tah-dah! I did not quite capture the look of hope she had on her face, but I think I’m on my way!
I have a bunch of zoo photos from a trip when I had my not so nice camera where the animal images are pretty small and I have to do a lot of guesswork about what is probably happening in some of the areas. I think as time goes on and I learn to paintContinue reading “paintings: a grizzly bear and a bunny”
Here are some favorites from this week. I feel really back in the painting groove now and they are coming together fabulously.

I took the photo in 2004 at the San Francisco zoo, so I did a little sleuthing and imagine my disappointment to find this is not the (in)famous Tatiana, but her boyfriend Tony. Oh well. He’sContinue reading “paintings: tiger”
Isn’t this a charming scene? I wish I lived on a farm where my cows could wander by my laundry line…. But I don’t at the moment, and I asked the lady who posted the photo (Patrice Lewis, see her blog) this was modeled from if I could use her photo, and she very kindlyContinue reading “paintings: a Jersey cow with laundry”
This week I’ll have 3 new horse paintings, and a sweet bunny painting. So far, here’s photos of two of the horses.
I’m taking my Christmas break from selling on ebay, and won’t have any more paintings there until Dec. 29. In the meanwhile, I’m going to be listing one here and there on etsy throughout the month. I finished up this grizzly bear painting, and I’m happy with how he turned out. This is from myContinue reading “painting: a grizzly bear”
