Pet Portraits!

These were commissioned by the awesomest, Helen McWilliams!  Her bun, Cody and his stuffed animal "Girlfriend."  Both a blast to paint!  Next time, a sculpted gold-leafed frame is in order!

Portraits from CCAE

Not too long ago, I took an evening continuing ed class with Sholeh Regna.  She was nothing short of fabulous.  I only wish I had more time on each portrait- about an hour and a half each.  I did learn to work very fast!  These are in order of completion:


The Tibetan model was probably my favorite.  He indeed had quite the melon, but I let it get out of control; that sculpture was huge!
This little boy was 8 or 9.  I really enjoyed sculpting his many dough-y chins !!  His profile is soo sweet:)

Father Octopus Posters


I finished FO's show poster this morning, and thought I'd share it, along with the first one I did for them.  I was
wildly "inspired" by Michael Dacey for this newest one, and grabbed a sweet splatter brush from this guy who insists I don't give him credit.

Oh!  And in case you haven't met Louis the Octopus and his potato friend, here are some pictures :)

Back from the dead!

Now that painting and I have been finally reacquainted after a year or more, I think I'll post something..

..I'd been scared to paint for a while, so I figured I'd paint something silly to get back into it- and it made me happy!  I like it.  Go figure.

..And here's Grandpaw himself, in case you haven't met him...
