My favorite of these little beach paintings that I have available. I am working on larger works at the moment, so I will post these until some of those are camera ready.
A new website is in the works complete with my own shop but for now I've listed this and a few more in my ETSY shop. I am trying that out for ease of purchasing and such.

Here's the thing - I hate New Year's Eve and those 'year in review' shows all over the news really bug me but New Year's Day, now that I love.
I love the idea of a fresh start and making resolutions and looking ahead.
I love green smoothies and recommitting to healthier living.
I love packing away the Holidays and cleaning out the fridge.
Mostly I love taking everything off my studio bulletin board and hanging a new calendar.
Yesterday I put on some good music and cleaned my space, organized and made a to-do list.
Love, love, love.
This year I've got some big painting goals but also I decided to commit to a daily practice of doing one little drawing. Nothing fancy, just a little morning doodle to start my day.
Everyday for 365.
I post each one to my instagram account if you want to follow along.
Happy New Year!

When I originally started painting these Santas I always thought of them reading the paper or a book, now I'm thinking Santa is sitting there with a reader, an iPad or a phone
Whichever, he looks relaxed. Not sure what it is but I've got the itch to deck the halls early this year.

I am a firm believer in enjoying October to it's fullest fall glory so I hate to even look at a Santa BUT
that time or year is right around the corner. This is my last little beach Santa that is still kicking around the studio. I might paint up a few to have for sale during Warren Walkabout.
For sure there will be lots of little paintings that make great gifts though.
Rest Up Santa, busy day is coming.

Everyone's favorite month is here! Hooray.
October means it's time for another Warren Walkabout - my studio will be open and I've decided to have a little sale. My studio is not huge and I'ld really like to move some of my older paintings out to make room in the studio and in my head for more art!!
Come by and grab some art for gifts!!
This year Walkabout is on October 23.

What is this, a blog post? Yes it is. We won't even talk about how long it's been, let's just move along.
I'm going to try and get my blogging mojo back over the next couple of weeks so bare with me. My studio building is open next thursday (august 25) as part of the Art Walk and I am thinking about opening my studio doors and having a big clearance sale of some of my paintings that are still kicking around the studio - the smaller ones and the paintings that don't fit into my current series or where my head is currently at art wise.
It is time to clear the cobwebs!
Not sure if I will do this or not so stay tuned!! but pssst - this one is a great deal!! and it has a frame

I FINALLY got to the beach and did some plain air painting. So nice to get out there and just paint!!
I did a bunch of 6x6" oil on panel. I'll post a new one each day with a link to purchase

I was fortunate to win a free spot in Lilla Rogers Make Art That Sells Bootcamp!!
So for the next 5 months I will be busy tapping into my Illustration roots.
I'm so excited about this because it really has been since college that I've flexed these muscles except for my sketchbooks.
It will be so fun to see what comes out of this class and how my style will emerge and evolve.
Our first assignment focuses on the hair styles of the 1920's - kinda my wheelhouse so I'm diving right in
My painting is still happening - don't worry - I am painting away in the studio getting some big art ready for the summer.
follow me on instagram where I'll be posting about both projects almost daily

People are my jam. I mean I paint them and draw them ALL the time. Can't get enough. When I'm talking to someone I am preoccupied with how to paint them, what colors in their skin. Painting people is my jam.
But lately in my studio I have been putting on music and painting like this. Abstract.
Getting lost in the colors, the materials and the vibe. Kinda loving it.
Abstract summer is my new jam.
Isn't she cute? It is square which I LOVE and the pages are thicker than the usual - 140 instead of 90 I think. That means it takes paint much better - no warping!!
and my latest drawing obsession: Dudes with Beards.

Soon I will be doing an instagram painting giveaway so don't miss out

Cleaning my studio and clearing my head to make room for some new art. Bigger art and a more free vibe.
My studio space is not huge and longer than wider - it is only 10 ft wide!
Space is at a premium, especially storage space for paintings.
So over the next week or two I will be posting some here for sale ON SALE in the hopes that they will find good homes and get up on some walls to be seen!
This is the first and honestly I love this painting. The pigtails, the color, it works. Link to purchase is below.

Killing many birds with one stone on this night : keeping my skills up, getting to paint with a room full of talented artists, keeping the kid busy, quality time with son and he made a few bucks! Win,win, win.
Here is my friend Kerry's painting of Harry
