The Daydreams have become multi-faceted. Original Daydreams included a representational object as the starting point, like a bit of clover or a daisy. They were about that moment when lucidity dissolves and imagination steps up to the plate.

Some of my recent pieces, though, are complete abstractions, even though they started (just like the others) with a snippet of something from The Real World (this one was milk weed pods). Today's painting was not about the moment a Daydream began. Instead, it was all about the dream's journey and how it made me feel. So that inherent difference meant that I had to somehow classify this painting (and similar ones) as being separate from the others.

Which means there's now a new kid in town. Well, let's be real, pretty soon it'll be a gaggle of new kids. Meet The Figments. (And in a twist of irony they are now Real, because they exist in The Real World, but I'm calling them figments anyways because I can. So there.).

Thanks so very much for following along on my art journey,

Yes, that is copper paint reflecting the studio lights on the horse's shoulder, and yes, that is a silvery haze around her face. Because starlight sparkles. Just like you.

because our world needs more beauty
"The Spell She Casts (Medicine Hat #13)," 16" x 20" x 1", acrylics on gallery wrapped canvas, image painted around the side, so no need to frame unless you wish.

This Medicine Hat painting is number 13, so of course that association alone had me thinking about magic. If you love the company of equines, you know first hand the spells they cast. And that their magic lingers long after they have left.

30 Dogs 30 Days - Pink Chihuahua

My very first Dog a Day painting, Pink, a little 4" x 5" panel, private collection (THANK YOU!). This is where things really began to take off. But let's go back in time a little first.

It's 2006. I had been creating larger than life sized pet portraits for about 5 years, selling them online (via ebay and my website). I was a little disillusioned, always moving from one commission to another, with little time for continued learning or experimentation (entirely my own fault). In October I decided to carve out a small window of time each day for just myself. An hour to push paint without any expectation but to have fun. I builta blogas a dedicated space to record my efforts, because I love to compartmentalize everything. Yes, everything. My Inner Marketer thought I should dovetail the daily project with the studio in some way, to further drive traffic tomy websitevia keywords, regular updates and context similar content - so I chose to focus on dog portraits.
