Merry Christmas!

I used this painting on my Christmas cards this year. It's an ACEO (2.5 inches by 3.5 inches), painted with Daniel Smith watercolors on Arches 140# paper. The text was added in PhotoShop.

If you find cat hair in my paintings, there's a reason...

I attempted to paint today. I have a large, fabulous desk. I have the paints, the brushes, the tools. I even have some inspiration and inclination. But I also have a furry assistant who refused to get out of the way. If you find cat hair in my paintings, consider it to be her personal contribution to a mixed media work of art.

My loyal studio assistant...

Two problems with letting the cats into my office/studio: 1) they get cat hair in the paints and 2) they drink the rinse water.

Still breathing...

Hello. It's been ages since I've posted. Life gets in the way. But I have been painting, participating in shows, and posting new items to ETSY. Take a look at the widget to your right to see what's in my shop right now. I've been reading a lot of art blogs that I hope to mention here in the near future. I also hope to post a few work-in-progress photos soon, too.
