NEW STUDIES Bumbles 5 and 6

At left, Bumble 5, at right, Bumble 6. Both are acrylic on panel, measure 6" x 6", and are $99 each. I estimate $15 s&h inside the US. I am happy to combine shipping on these, too. Simplyreach out to meand we can arrange your purchase. I accept Paypal, venmo, personal checks and payment plans. The last two bumbles went quickly, so I thought I'd try two more after signing a larger commissioned portrait today. It's fun doing these little studies, playing with color and line just for the pure fun of it. A nice contrast to the meticulous attention to detail required for portraiture.

I'm entering the homestretch - three more commissions and I can tie that side of my business up for the year. After they are done I will pick up work again ona larger paintingI'd like to enter in a competition, with a deadline of early January.

And get to making gifts for those on my own list!

Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork journey,
Happy holidays!

NEW STUDIES Bumbles 3 and 4

At left, Bumble 3, at right, Bumble 4. Both are acrylic on panel, measure 6" x 6", and are $99 each. I estimate $15 s&h inside the US. I am happy to combine shipping on these, too. Simplyreach out to meand we can arrange your purchase. I accept Paypal, venmo, personal checks and payment plans. Three gorgeous pet portraits were shipped out today - nothing feels so wonderful as wrapping these sorts of gifts up and sending them on their way. Except hearing back from the recipients about the reveal, maybe.

I've got 4 more portraits to complete before I can start on my own list. I'm spending most of my days and a good chunk of my nights at the easel, which is pretty much typical for this time of year. But what is new is that, instead of watching paint dry, I'm working on little studies which will be used as references in the New Year for larger paintings. Bees, like the two above. And butterflies (here's the last one currently available).

Thanks, as always, for …

I'm currently taking an online class calledSymbolotry. The class is focused on finding a deeper understanding of the role symbols have in our lives, and then consciously using this knowledge to build a personally meaningful dictionary of symbolic marks in our artwork. It's been fascinating for me to di…

THANK YOU

An untitled Daydream on my easel, along with a handful of studies, in a relatively clean studio.  All things are relative, right?! Am feeling very full this morning - and no, I've not started eating already!! Just sitting in the studio, thinking about all the beauty that you have allowed me to create for the past 19 years. Whether it's been with a purchase, a referral, a social media share or comment, or simply encouragement, I'm here today because of it. I am so very grateful - thank you.

There will be pie, in your honor, across the United States tonite.

NEW PAINTING Surfacing (Daydream 41)

"Surfacing(Daydream 41)," 20" x 24", acrylics and graphite on panel, $849 plus s&h to the first asking nicely. I accept paypal, venmo, personal checks and payment plans - inquiries always welcome to come to me This painting evolved from the same reference photo as"The Butterfly Effect (Daydream 40),"yet they have entirely different feels. I think it's a reflection of my mood and frame of mind at the time I create them. Even just the span of a few days can have a significant impact.

NEW PAINTING The Butterfly Effect (Daydream 40)

"The Butterfly Effect (Daydream 40)," 20" x 24", acrylics and graphite on panel, $849 plus s&h to the first asking nicely. I accept paypal, venmo, personal checks and payment plans - inquiries always welcome to come to me As cliche as it sounds, I WISH I could show you this one in person. There is nuance here the computer simply cannot display. This is a breakthrough painting for me, as wasMother, who I completed a few weeks back. To have both of these happen so closely together tells me I'm asking the right sorts of questions.

Props toLauren Everett Finnfor encouraging me to embrace darker values in my work. And talking about all sorts of other things that have given me a larger arsenal from which to create.
