New paintings

I am framing and organizing for upcoming shows....the paperwork, delivery, pick up, entering, refreshing etc....of paintings to various venues is an ongoing cycle....like a merry go round...so this painting is titled "Spreading the Joy", which I hope folks feel when they see my work. Oh and by the way I've opened an Etsy store....hope you check it out!

Feathered muse

I never tire of these birds....so many colors, personalities, shapes and sizes...my camera is always at the ready to capture them at random farms or other places I might spot them clucking about!

For me practicing is key...and I try to draw or paint or create something every day. This includes going to figure sessions where I have the chance to sharpen my eye and observe from life, proportions, lights and shadows and all that comes along with that...not easy, but an ongoing merry-go-round... This drawing was done with watercolor pencils on grey toned paper that I never ended up using water on.

New gallery work

Just dropped off new paintings at the Green Mountain Fine Art Gallery in Stowe...this one included titled "Territorial".  It is a third of a full sheet of watercolor so it measures 10"x22".  These are fun to do with tall subjects...like delphiniums!
