Colorful Pup


I got to paint a dog portrait for a friend last week.  These scruffy, hairy-eyebrow dogs are the most fun to paint! They have such character, and this one in particular had so many colors I was able to pull out of him.  Check out this face-


Glad I was able to squeeze him in before the end of the month.  I find I’m painting less these days, but when I get the itch I can make something happen.

Fall Succulents


For Sale at Trimble Court Artisans (24x24in on Stretched Canvas)

Is everyone else as moved as I am by these fall colors when you walk outside?  There’s been an obvious theme in my paintings lately too.  So. Good.

I’m grateful I had a chance to finish this painting today, and I am loving the colors…again!   This is the same bush I painted earlier this summer-


But look how different the colors are in just a month!  So great.  I might just have to try painting this plant every season.  I get to paint all my favorites with this subject; branches, tiny negative space shapes, and random patterns!  I may have a new favorite.

Another Go


Welp, the guilt got to me again.  So I sucked it up and took another look at some pictures I took of the same succulent bush at the end of our sidewalk (that I did earlier this summer) and stood in front of the easel and went for it.  I had fun so far and do like the turn out.  But baby’s awake now, so more tomorrow!

Fall Foliage


SOLD (8x8in on canvas panel)

Woah.  It’s been about 2 weeks since I’ve painted anything on a canvas….whoops.  I think I just needed a break to try some other crafts.  But today was the day, and the yellow aspens and Colorado blue sky were calling for some paint!  I enjoyed the simplicity and colors for this one.
