still painting

January got off to a slow start, which I needed after the Christmas rush. I’ve painted a few commissions, and wanted time for them to reach the owners before showing them off.

Isn’t this a nice moment? I’d swear he’s waiting for his owner, if I didn’t think the owner snapped the picture.  🙂

 

paintings: mid summer catch up

We’re hitting our 100+ degree days now. Tomorrow it’s supposed to be 105 or 107. I’m glad it took until mid-July to occur, because I really don’t like the hot days. I have similar sentiments about mid-winter. I’m sure you can relate.

Still, we’re only 3 weeks away from the county fair, hooray! I just know there will be lots of fun new faces there. I better remember to stock up on camera batteries. 😉

Above are four sold paintings. Can you tell I was on a color theme? I really like the warm ochre. And also, they are all painted with a brush, breaking from my recent knife-painting phase. I have actually ordered more brushes, so expect to see more coming soon!
