Happy New Year....On the easel.

I took a week off at Christmas and always think I am going to get work done between Christmas and New Years, but I find myself tinkering more than anything else.

I sold "Liar" and "Overcoming the Seeds of Doubt" in the last two weeks as well as a bunch of prints, so I am very, very thankful to all who are so willing to part with their heard earned money to have a piece of my work.

Happy New Year to you all.....and after Sunday....back to work in earnest! So far I have two shows to paint for in 2011

On the easel:

"Carolina Wren"

My birds for the July show are climbing. Think I have 19 now. I am making a point of painting birds that are sort of annoying to most people. Often we miss something really beautiful when we dismiss "pest" animals. The common Grackle is probably one of the most bothersome yet, most beautiful of birds.

What's paintings and getting warmed up

The "Small Wonders" opening was really fun. One of my paintings received an honorable mention, which is nice. I never win anything, and honestly don't put too much stock in awards, but it was a nice treat. Thanks to all my people for coming out to the party. I was really glad to meet artists Ana Rendich, Jill Powell and finally, Jeanne Tanks. The show hangs through January, so come out and if you do, let me know so we can grab a coffee.....

Me and Jill.....

After so many months of painting tediously for the bird show in July with focused technique and tiny brushes, I did a warn up, a painting challenge of sorts to get myself in a different state by using a completely different approach to painting. I also decided to begin a new New Mythology painting today. Below are the first foundational passes.....
