Santa at the Beach, 101502

6x6" oil
Santa on the Beach
Crazy right?  I know, I know too soon put the pumpkin latte down for a second and look at your calender - That's right -Christmas is about 11 weeks away.
Now is the perfect time to commission an original painting so this is your friendly reminder.

Studio Peek

"Do This"  - just like yours, my to-do list is L O N G. 
Under this sign is where the sticky notes pile up - the commission notes and shipping details.  This spot makes me happiest when its dripping in sticky notes. 

the panels : they are getting prepped for paintings. 

this wood : I pulled this old weathered gray wood out of the bon fire pile at our beach last summer - it's just too cool to burn, don't you think??  I'm going to paint some little beach landscapes on these - stay tuned!!

Leaving Summer Behind - again

                                                               Leaving Summer Behind
                                                                          18 x 18 oil

Fall is here at last but it's still a little sad to be leaving summer behind again.

One of my favorites from a series of leaving the beach paintings I did a few years back.  I' ld love for this one to find a good home.   It comes with a frame even!

Happy October, fresh air friday

October.  Sweet October.  The trees get all the credit for this gorgeous month but for me it is all about the marshes.  The subtle color in those grasses, thats the stuff I love.
It's fresh air friday and even though its rainy, it is time to get out there and soak up color! 
Happy weekend, Happy October

What's this?  A post? 
Why yes it is! I'm as surprised as you are!!
I've decided to start blogging on a regular basis again and today seems like a good place to start.  
Except it's hot and I don't do well with hot!   

But updating my blog seems to fuel my creative fire so I'm back to it for the sake of creativity!!

Mutt 001 painting

24x24" acrylic on wood panel.
No - not bored of the black lab yet just had to paint my sweet boy Bode Dog a sweet sweet mutt.  Still having fun with these big acrylics.  My son called dibs on this painting, so it is not for sale.

Black Lab 002 painting

24x24" acrylic of wood panel
Something about painting the same image over and over again is appealing.  It lets you explore the paint and the mood and the color without having to worry about composition and proportion and all that fussy stuff.  Just might paint this black lab a bunch more until it is not fun any more.

Black Lab 001 painting

24x24" acrylic on wood panel
Acrylic - I know, weird right?   I love oils, I really really do but ooooh I am having a love affair with acrylics right now.
 Struggled at first with the change in medium but I've hit my grove with these dogs.  Totally into pushing the color and the abstract right now.  More of this is bubbling under the surface, watch out.

Studio Peek

A little studio peek.  The beach scenes are WIP.  The dogs are done.  I have been playing around with acrylics on these big panels and I'm LOVING it.  The quickness suits my painting style.  stay tuned for close-ups and more.
