Still working on finishing up the main colors in the body of this magnificent bird. I’m also working on getting the roundness of it’s body shape in place. And there are some drawing issues I need to work out. Pulled in a few colors from the bird into the background. Will likely next tackle more… Continue reading Great Blue Heron: Day 2
I’m delighted to announce that my beloved Raccoon painting has found a new home! She sold at the RAL Art Center today to a new-to-me patron. Since I took her photo last Spring, she has begun bringing around her four cubs (I think they are called cubs and not pups). So I hope to get… Continue reading Raccoon Painting Re-homed
I got an email today letting me know that the Sheltering Arms Art Selection Committee has selected one of my painting submissions for purchase.

I’ll, of course, keep you posted if I get into to any of them. The hardest thing about… Continue reading Spring Competitions
