Something fishy

I love bold bright colors. They make me feel good. But I also like stark black and white. Does that contradict? I think not. It’s the boldness of it that attracts me.

Today I’m brain dead. It’s going to be one of those days where I day dream and don’t get the stuff on my list done. Ugh, that dreaded list. Each day it gets longer. But first! I wanted to share the fish bowl…


Orchid Series

I’ve just uploaded my orchid series to Etsy. There are four renditions of this piece. I think I like the black and white best.

Without the Wacom tablet and the Painter software I’d be washing brushes, hands, clothes, walls and the cat (if I still had one).  I was always a messy painter.

Not anymore! My Wacom tablet is a miracle from God, a present from Santa, a dream from a geni in a bottle. Check out this drawing.

Cupcake Love

Last night I couldn’t sleep so I got up and painted a cupcake. I painted more today. And now I have a series of cupcake paintings for sale in my Etsy store. I can tell you that it was a lot of fun doing this series. I may continue the series, but maybe not. Maybe I’ll go in a different food direction… perhaps tomatoes, or crackers!

In the cupcake love series I created some really cool backgrounds and dropped them in, then added the cupcake and all the sprinkles over that. All this made me hungry so I went out for sushi with Chris, Jake and Mom. Great sushi btw.

Now for the next project. Crackers? Really? I’m working on it.
