"Attitude"



















8" x 8"
Acrylic on Stretched Canvas

I decided to enter the pet portrait swap exhibit at EBSQ assuming I'd get to paint a dog or a cat portrait. I was quite suprised when my email was answered by Janelle Dixon with photos of pigeons! Not just any pigeons, but Hungarian Giant House pigeons! Little did I know that pigeons not only make an interesting pet, but they are also a lot of fun to paint.

"Imitation Creek"















This is not a real geographical place (that I know of). The way the creek imitates the sky is just one of those happy accidents :)

CES Shelf Sitter - "Smashing Orange"



















Acrylic on Wood
4" x 4"

This is a "shelf-sitter" - a hand painted wood block with the 1 inch sides painted. Finished with a high quality varnish. Sits beautifully on a shelf all on its own. $40 each. Affordable and collectible!

I keep my mixed paints in small glass jars and while painting this shelf sitter, I bumped one of those glass jars off the table. I had to pause my painting to clean the orange paint mixed with smashed glass off my studio floor. Hence the appropriate title, "Smashing Orange" :)

"For the Love of Painting Birch"



















I've been so busy with moving I haven't painted in over a week. So, I thought I'd kick things off in my new studio with birch trees just for the love of painting them. :)

"1950s Zombie Pin-Up Girl"



















10" x 14"

This was a custom painting for a local collector. I painted a zombie pin-up girl a while back in reds and blacks. This one is very different for me with the white background and light green skin. I love her little polka dot bikini bottom :)
