10 (8x8) Canvases - $30 each!

PWA Project - 10 Artworks, 30 hours, $30 each
8"x8" Gallery Wrap (1.5" deep) Canvases, Cotton Fabric, Acrylics

So, I missed the hanging deadline. I finished these two days after the drop off date. I can't blame anyone but myself, but, in my defense, life has thrown me some big curve balls recently. Not bad stuff, just, stuff that keeps me from painting & creating. 

These 10 paintings are all done on 8"x8" Gallery Wrap Canvases that I covered with Cotton Fat Quarters from the fabric store. The original concept was to create origami animals and paint them but I realized I just wanted to paint animals - birds and insects. This is one of the few times I have painted exclusively in Acrylics. That might change, but I like the set so far. I just really dig pattern. 

If you are interested in purchasing, please email me - (please put 8"x8" canvas in the Subject line) they are all $30 each plus shipping.

Two Little

Two Little, 10"x8" oil on stretched canvas, commission

This is Two Little, a sweet little yorkie who has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. As a pet portrait artist I am often asked to paint dearly loved pets that are no longer with us. I still feel that I captured some of this little guy's sparkly personality. 

And I also realized that this is the third yorkie I have painted since January.

Plein Air 2013 - Cloud Chasing

On Monday I went painting Plein Air for the first time this year, with my friend (hardcore plein air painter) Aaron Johnson. We drove out to a nice lookout spot on the old Pullman Highway, then raced back to his studio to pick up a Grad Student (painting) from the U of I - then back out for one more quick painting... Aaron is a whirlwind of paint and brushes - you have to be when you are trying to capture clouds. Below are my ventures, check out Aaron's wonderful painterly paintings on his website:
