two birds























Another cabinet door painting, I love working bigger!

I almost didn't get this painting listed, there was a GIANT green cricket in my studio today camped out on this painting.
I waited,
I waved paper at him,
I made loud noises,
I left and came back later...
Nothing.
I finally get fed up, tilted the painting up, expecting him to jump off
NO
So then I had to push him off with a paintbrush
He's still in my studio somewhere :(

hand to hand























woo wee!!! I did a gigantic painting (well big for me)
It's 22" x 16" painted on a cabinet door, see the brass handle
It was different and fun and I absolutely love the result
I see more of these in my future

three stories























Somehow I survived the last month.
For the last four weekends I had a major event...

1. My sister's camping wedding extravaganza
2. Lila and Paul's family birthday party
3. Archon (weekend away and art show)
4. Paul's birthday party, where I had ALL the boys from his kindergarten class at my house.

This weekend we have NOTHING planned and I am so excited. I want to clean my studio and relax and paint.
Hope your weekend is enjoyable!

Jasper























My poor kitty Jasper got in a fight with a chipmunk, and lost
He has a nasty, infected, wound on his neck.
Antibiotics have the swelling down, but I still feel sorry for him, so I did his painting of him, to show my love...

I'm Back























Had a wonderful weekend getaway at Archon, (a sci-fi convention)
I think I was 16 at the first one I attended.
I participated in the art show for the second year. Though my work is quite different from 'traditional' sci-fi art, think carefully rendered dragons, metal bikinis and planetary landscapes, I get a few people who delight in my more primitive takes on fairys and mermaids.
I sold several of my prints mounted on wood blocks, which made me feel good :)
