While creating an illustrated journal during my artist residency in Iceland, I had a great time messing with photos from the local newspapers.
…at least it does at my house. For weeks, barred owls have been hooting away in my back yard at dawn. Everyone should be lucky enough to have an alarm clock like mine!
Just a few more weeks of posts and my entire art show will be published. During the holidays may I suggest curling up by the fire (virtual or otherwise) with a warming drink, and taking some time to stroll through the rooms of this online art offering? Dom Daciana below would approve!
Why didn’t I try this sooner? So far my online art show has garnered plenty of juicy feedback (thanks everyone!) plus there are no wine glasses to rent or cheese chunks in my potted plants. I’m adding new art each week until the end of 2021, so keep checking in by clicking the “Online Show” link in the bar above. And please leave me your thoughts; there’s a “leave a reply” option at the bottom of this post.
I’ve created an online gallery for my latest show. To visit, click on “52 Designs for Wearing Your Insides Outside” in the bar above. If you wish, leave your thoughts in “leave a reply” below. When scrolling upward through my gallery, a “follow” button will appear in the lower right corner of your screen. Clicking on it lets each new addition to my show arrive via your email inbox…and that’s a good thing!
We all need to hear this, and to know this, so I made a painting to celebrate the gorgeousness that lives in each of us.
All right, Panda is actually my sibling’s kitty, but he’s my feline soul mate. How can you not love this furry face? This painting is a recent birthday present to my darling sister.
I love our deer! Victoria is a miracle of urban animal abundance and I will lobby long and hard to keep it that way. All I ask, sweet Bambi, is that you forego nibbling my tiny new plum tree.
This bunny print was created by using watercolour paint on a sheet of acrylic coated in a thin layer of dish soap. It’s a finicky technique, but I adore the texture and subtlety of the result. Perfect for a rainy September afternoon, I’d say.
Admittedly, claims that peanut butter will increase your life expectancy probably aren’t true – but I say a toasted bagel smeared with the stuff is guaranteed to improve just about any artist’s morning.
