This week I really got the swing of bright oil paints. I’ve been trying to go here for a long time, and this week finally was able to do it right! These will go up on ebay July 22. Isn’t this horse fantastic? And these rabbits are fabulous, too! The light highlight was weird inContinue reading “A horse, a rabbit, and a moose painting for ebay”
This horse painting was one of those that as I was working on it I was sort of “is this working right?” about it, but then once I set it aside and let it dry and then brought it out again I loved it. Sometimes it takes that time distance to see clearly, or maybeContinue reading “Jack Russell, & Horse Paintings for ebay”
I put up this happy girl in my etsy shop today. This week I worked on more-detailed backgrounds than I have been painting lately. And if you liked my chickadee series but thought they were over priced (as if!), I lowered the prices on the whole series a couple weeks ago. Etsy is a placeContinue reading “a Labrador painting for etsy”
While I’m updating my blog, I’ll show off two paintings I like that are going up on ebay this week (July 8). The bunny is in oil which always photographs horribly because the sunlight reflects off the oiliness of the dark colors. It doesn’t look like that when you hang it in your home, though.
Here are two paintings from photos I took at Melissa’s place. She has the cutest goats! I’ve got a ton more photos of everybody, so there will be a lot more paintings to follow. These will be in my ebay shop on July 1! I have another goat painting available right now on ebay thatContinue reading “Goats and a horse painting for ebay”
What a busy day today! Early thrifting, then playing in the park with playgroup, then McDonald’s for a meal and a lot more play time in the playland. It was of course my intention to never introduce Elle to McDonald’s, but that went by the wayside a while ago. Now it’s a treat to goContinue reading “Busy week”
I was kindly given a whole lot of Rhodesian Ridgeback photos to use as painting models from a lady who runs a rescue shelter in northern CA. This is Miles, and he’ll be up on etsy later today!
I’m putting up this new masked Great Dane painting in my etsy shop. The painting is 12″x12″ and is painted in acrylics. The colors are a little brighter in person than they appear in the photo.
I just added this painting to my etsy shop. It’s 8″x10″. I had originally painted this one specifically intending it for a frame I found–a very pretty, quality frame that just screamed, “I need a horse painting!” but when finished, I found the frame is actually 8-1/2 by 10-1/2, so my painting didn’t fit! WhatContinue reading “New horse painting for etsy”
This first is an example of my least favorite kind of art, published in 1968. Brings back memories of Yellow Submarine, and all those horrible cartoons like The Three Stooges. This second example is from the mid 1970s, and is a much more easily embraced style of drawing. I picked the above illustrations for aContinue reading “More on books”
