Dawn's Early Light

Got a bee in my bonnet after the last post, so made a diptych.

Each are 8" x 8" on gessoboard, mixed media.

The Rockets' Red Glare

I'm in the process of finishing up a rather tight, realistic painting and it's taking a while. So in the meantime, a little rebellion against studied concentration. It's fun to let 'er rip.

Have a Cold One

Had a busy week with no painting to show for it. So, I am posting one from a series of 6 of things we drink everyday.

At Ease

My son's shoes are cool, with the two tone canvas and looked like they'd make a good subject for a painting.

A wild and crazy experiment. I enjoy doing ink drawings, although I don't post many of them on the blog. I was ready to paint this as a realistic oil (which I will still do), and got the hair-brained idea to do the ink drawing on cradled art board and color it with acrylics. Best part - no glass or framing required.

Perhaps the technique will have interesting possiblities... who knows.

Dirigibles Disguised as Starfruit

Such an interesting fruit, that looks like little dirigibles to me.

It Was Mom's

This was my Mother's favorite little coffee pot, an old drip-style model that predated those new-fangled percolators. Made just 2 cups. I keep it in the cupboard and can't bear to let it go.

The Blues

6" x 6" in oil. I got these for Christmas several years back when I thought I wanted to learn to play. Heh.
