#30paintingsin30days Day 3: Mimi in the Laundry Shade

NOTE: The original scan I posted wasn’t accurate, too contrasty and colors were not accurate, so I photographed it the next day and replaced the image. This was painted from a photo I took in August 2015. I’ve always wanted to do a simple little painting of it: my colorful dresses and skirts moving gently […]

Sophie Keeps an Eye on Things in Your Garden

Sophie could use any prop to dramatic effect, and the lace curtains were her favorite. Of course, you can’t see her.

Daily Sketch: "Blending"

Jelly Bean watches out the upstairs window, streaming with winter morning sun. The white light glares and introduces all sorts of colors where they don’t normally appear, in Jelly Bean’s black fur, on the pine tabletop, in the lace curtain. . . . . . . . Where to find this artwork I have this […]

Fifteen Years

“Aurora Borealis”, a sketch I did for an illustration for a book about two polar bears who…I don’t remember the story line, but I do remember checking my voice mail at home while I was at work that last autumn I was at my day job, and listened to the message from the small press […]

January Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: "Rolling Around"

I’ve been planning on using this art as a winter month desktop calendar for quite some time, and I’m so glad the time has finally come around! Here is what I said about it when I posted it as a daily sketch on October 12, 2013: Giuseppe was having a really good roll around on […]
