Having been lucky enough to get a solo show, the race is on! It's time to hit the studio and hit it hard!

It is amazing how motivated one becomes when a deadline looms close by. It also gives one the nerve to try different things, new ideas. It forces that change in direction that one often needs.

That being said, it is a small local venue, designed to showcase "emerging" artists. Since it's been a slow, but steady process of building the portfolio, a small venue is just right... for now!

So, here is the newest  addition, Balloon Amidst Clouds! Step 1 to the final:

Think it's time to change the calendar, though!

Bird Squares: Spring Birds


Much happier with some final touches, texture to the Finch painting. Also thinking the name should actually be Goldfinch.

Three of 4 squares completed; one more to go. Maybe...

I'm not entirely happy with Finch: it just doesn't look complete. It needs more work. 

So, for now, we'll consider it 3 1/2 done, one and a half left to go!

Digital Doodles

A couple of months ago, a friend showed me a photo of her dogs. The angle of the picture inspired an idea! The image was from the perspective of the dog walker, looking down at the dogs on several leads.

Here's the result, after an evening playing with a paint program on my tablet:

After printing and matting it for Beth, another friend asked for a portrait of her cats:

They are fun to do and, obviously, wonderfully personal for the pet parents!

So, of course, I had to do one of one of our pet kids:

There are many more photos waiting to be done, I'm sure! And, so enjoyable to do!
