Painted House Numbers

(As usual, click an image to see it bigger, in a new Tab) We don’t currently have a very pretty house number sign, and I decided to make one.  This was a terrifically easy project. I painted a piece of … Continue reading

Working With a Theme – Moon and Heron

Well, this was an interesting exercise.  Again, using a moon as a background, this will use a Heron as the focal point.  If you’re a watercolor “purist”, just stop reading right now!  I used watercolors, a gold pen, a black … Continue reading

Holy Exploding Plastic Bottles, Batman!

And this is why I have “studio” clothes…. Do you ever see interviews with artists and they’re wearing regular, clean street clothes?  I’m like “Really??  C’mon on, you NEVER get paint on your clothes (or your face or in your … Continue reading

Goin’ Batty

I’m not sure if ANYONE will like this one, but bats are sooo cool, that I had to do one.  This is small, 10″ x 10″, and I kinda like it.  I did it in reverse from the previous ones.  … Continue reading

Octopus – Oooops…

I’ve been working from Royalty Free Photographs for the last few paintings, including the Octopus.  I was just starting a smaller version, using the same photograph, when I noticed that I’d left out part of the head on the big … Continue reading

Tiger Number 2 – Finished

Well, this one is OK, and definitely good enough to put in the show, but it’s not one of my favorites.  I’m not sure WHY I like  the first tiger  better, though….. Anyway, I added a bit more white to the face, … Continue reading

Tiger Number 2

I’ve decided that it’s important to have 3 different Price Points when I’m at the Art Show, so I’m doing a few paintings on 10″ x 10″ canvasses.  I just started this tiger – frankly, it’s not as good as … Continue reading

Lions and tigers and bears. Oh my!

OK, just a bear, actually.  This one gave me some major grief.  The initial painting looked tragic – This is about 75% done, and it’s still missing an ear. Fortunately, I know from experience not to give up too soon, … Continue reading

Octopus!!!

So, yet another painting in the scribbly black line style.  This is the first one I did on a black background, and man, these colors totally ROCK the black……..  They’re done on a 12″ x 36″ canvas.

Boy, this black scibbly outline thing is just magic.  I still wasn’t too sure about this piece, then I added the outline, and Voila!  Just Love It!!  I won this fight!

Fish 4 – I’m having issues!!!

Gah, I always have such GOOD advice to give other people when I’m teaching painting, and yet, I don’t abide by it myself.  My intent for the fourth fish was to continue with the Pink/Orange palette, but have an orange’ish … Continue reading

Turtle 2 – Done

Yowza, another one done.  I am learning so much as I’m doing an image more than once.  On this piece, I had painted the entire turtle “shape”, as opposed to painting within a platelet.  Turns out that this is NOT … Continue reading

Turtle 1 – Done! Turtle 2 – Begun

Well, I’m calling this one Done! Remember, this was my FIRST attempt at a turtle, and I’m doing the second one just a bit differently, as far as process goes. I find that the outlining is a bit too “busy”, with … Continue reading

Turtle 1

OK, so the next painting in this series will be a turtle.  I’m doing a practice turtle first, so I took an old canvas that had a lot of texture on it, from a multi-media piece I’d been working on.  … Continue reading

One of the people who follow this blog said “…I don’t fully understand the process, but love the outcome…”.  (Yes, it makes me laugh to write ”  …one of the people….  “, like there are hundreds of thousands of faithful … Continue reading

Here’s the second in this series.  I like this one even better than the previous one.  Again, Acrylics on 300 lb watercolor paper, 12″ x 15″.     I’m really having second thoughts about painting on watercolor paper and then … Continue reading

Damn Tiger – Revisited

So, 5 previous posts were about a tiger’s head done in watercolors on a huge piece (30″ x 20″) of 300 lb wc paper.  One I tore up, and one had some good bits in it, but overall, neither piece was … Continue reading
