Beyond the Looking Glass


Ahhh, another new painting. I have to say that I am having fun figuring out these figures. My sister posted my previous painting on her site liquidskyarts.com , which was really nice of her. This painting actually was completed before the one of the lady drinking coffee. She is another day dreamer taking a mental break from her life.

A work in progress...


I have been working on a series of figurative paintings for a few months now. I have been using myself as a model, and having my kids help me with the photographs that I have been using as a jumping off point for the paintings. The kids are enjoying their new level of involvement in the creative process...it used to be just do you like it or not.
I am trying to keep these very loose and painterly. The images move from realistic to somewhat absract with some loosly drawn cartoony elements. This painting is #4 in the series and is untitled. I am currently debating whether or not to add a box of Krispy Kremes into the picture...the jury is still out.

New Work...Yeah!!!



Believe it or not, somewhere between art fairs, soccer, and an extremely long car trip out to Montana, I have gotten a few new pieces completed. Just in time for my next few art fairs.
I have dubbed this the Hot Mama collection
