Winter - my first encaustic!

6x5.5" encaustic,collage,oil

My first encaustic! - encaustic is painting with hot wax. - and man, is it different than what I normally do - totally out of my comfort zone! But completely fun and addicting. ---ooh the layers and depth! its completely freeing. Ive been waiting to use this stack of old childrens book pages too.

Fall Favorites

Hinterland -daily painting and Warren Walkabout

8x8" oil on hardboard panel $140

A very personal painting on many levels - Completely inspired by my brother and his Hinterland Series, its of the beach were we spent many many childhood days and drawn from a photo of his daughter running there. meant to be a loose and dreamy interpretation of a favorite place

***FYI*** this sunday 12-5pm is the Warren RI Walkabout (open studios,restaurant tastings etc) -

I will have some of my paintings, (maybe some prints too) on display along with David's work in their old studio space that we are in the process of turning into a gallery space for our work and my sister - in -laws work too. The space is a work in progress but its starting to take shape and we'ld love for you to stop by and say hi - its #205 in the Cutler Building 30 Cutler St Warren

Sweet Little Gift

6x6" oil on hardboard panel
A sweet little gift - painting presents is a challenge, but as it turns out, a great way to warm up. So I may have more of these from time to time. Perfect for the upcoming gift giving season :)
yesterday I said I was inspired by the paintings of Kimberley Applegate - and I am - but she paints chairs - not presents!!! Karen Appleton is the uber talented lady who paints the presents!!! Check out her website -she's got a great self portrait on there plus loads of packages


6x8" oil on gessoboard - contact me for availability

oops - I was supposed to post yesterdays painting today so it would show up on the

Daily Painters home page - the theme for October 1 is 'orange' . So I'll repost this one


8"x8" oil on wood panel
more experimenting here.
this is on a 1/4 inch board with black edges and a cutout in the back for easy hanging.

A beach break is a surfing term for when a wave breaks over the sandy bottom rolling into the beach, but I also like the idea of a 'beach break' - taking time out of our regular lives to go to the beach-

-speaking of regular lives: posting early today because I teach kindergarten art on tuesdays.

- I'm thinking about teaching some kind of workshop for adults in 2009 too - any thoughts on that?

-also, I totally appreciate EVERY comment and email I get - lately Ive been slow to respond - due to my busy fall schedule and sharing my computer with a teenager and a couple of pre-teens! - keep the comments coming though! I really do read them and enjoy them.

kelley - no special days in Oct. - just my favorite month here in NE.

Anne M - I sent you an email. did you get it? send me an email, I'ld be glad to help you out.
