If you feel the world does not need more sparkly-trailed slug paintings you’d better tell me now, because all i wanna do from now on is paint TONS of slugs.
what is the best solution for an artist who needs to paint lots of things for an upcoming show and can’t commit to any one thing for longer than twenty minutes? SEVERAL HUNDRED TINY ANIMAL PORTRAITS! there’s only 20 portraits right now, but the population is growing fast….
sometimes, even though you’re in the thick of research and you are thinking about science all the time and you’re sleepy you just have to stay up til 2 am and finish a few paintings.
at least i do.
all these froglets are available in the store! buy art to fund science. backwards, but true.
also, my grandmother is 90 times cooler than you and your grandparents put together. here’s her birthday present. please don’t ruin the secret.
(p.s. my grandmother’s birthday is also MY birthday. try to out-cool that.)
(p.p.s.) our birthdays are december 6th if you’d like to send a note and wish us well.)
thursday’s the show! here’s one of my favorites. others that i remembered to take photos of just seconds before the deadline are here.
i’m doing the forgotten works challenge again. i’ve gotta finish 30 paintings in 30 days. folks, did you know i’m quite possibly the world’s best procrastinator? doesn’t this sound like the worst endeavor for a person like me? the last time i did this (the very first one, a decade ago) i painted them all in 3 days. good thing i learn and grow from my experiences. i’m sure this is the same personality flaw that causes extinction.
here’s all the canvases that are still without a speck of paint on them. did i mention the due date is this sunday?
one is aaaalmost finished – i just gotta put on the glitter.
anyway, stay tuned. this is gonna get exciting.
i’ve gotta find some swimming holes, apparently. i can’t stop drawing fish and mermaids this week.
all of these guys are sitting in my etsy store if you need some art!
a kind reader asked if i’m still painting since i hardly ever post my own art anymore – it’s true, i do! here’s a few from the farmer’s market set last week…. and some are for sale at etsy, since i retreated from the rain before i sold out!
the family and i migrated to the migrating bird festival – there were lines of seabirds passing overhead almost constantly!
all these little paintings are shiny because there’s a layer of caulking between layers of paint. it’s messier (i.e., funner) this way.
here’s what’s been keeping me busy…
painting is happening again! here’s the first finished piece, already waiting in Etsy…
oh my, it has been a busy month. my little booth at I Heart Rummage in Chop Suey went marvelously, and it made my living room table look like this for weeks beforehand:
thanks to everyone who came to visit. I’m trying to wrangle a spot at the Fremont Market on Sundays, and I’ll let you know if that ever comes to fruition….
Happy New Year!
apparently fish and bicycles are inspiring me a lot at the moment. they’re looking for homes…
after an epic cross-country drive (five national parks, two flat tires, one busted rim!) and making sure my bikes still work once i got here in seattle, i finally dug out my brushes and put some things up in my etsy store!
ridiculous amounts of sweetness. you can buy it here.
wishes always come true when your eyes are closed – now available on the etsy site!
Oh right foot! It’s only been a few days and I already miss using you so. I’ve been splitting all this free time I’ve found for myself between painting and watching updates on healthcare reform, which unfortunately does not seem to be reforming itself today.
Anyway, this means more paintings for you to see! Here’s one, now available in the Etsy store.
