Greetings fellow artists and art lovers! I am still coloring and working on a new painting or two. Wanted to post some images from a new CB on Kaleidoscopes that I recently acquired. Please check them out and send me your feedback (these are two fun to complete with the art markers, and I can usually complete a design in one sitting!)… Continue reading… 0 comments

I completed (nearly -- more "touch-up" work on flower to do yet) my Hydranga watercolor (from photos taken during trip to Maui and the Botanical Gardens) couple months ago. Will attach here & add to my third gallery (of concept paintings/works) soon… Continue reading… 0 comments

OK -- nearly done with my posts for the day -- Had to share my progress on a current watercolor painting I am working on. It's a close-up of an amazing periwinkle blue Hydranga flower, from a photo I took in Maui. It's a work in progress -- still the background foliage to finish and detail work on the floral petals (probably the most detailed floral I have ever painted!)… Continue reading… 0 comments

Just added a portrait in watercolors and acrylics of my first King Charles Cavalier Tri-color Toy Spaniel,Charlie (Charles Raphael Sebastion/full name), relaxing on the tile floor (with his Halloween Clown collar on).

Greetings, I have updated the photos for the Jared Leto portrait in my 2nd Gallery (now a closeup of his face, triad & MARS logo). Also included updated/finished version of the Modern Metallic Vases (in 3rd Gallery). In addition, I have recently become consumed with the Adult Coloring Books, since I am such a Color Theory and Design fanatic! I just love using the art markers to fill in these compilations of glorious designs and imagery, especially that of Macintosh (patterns & motifs from Arts & Crafts movement), and Tiffany (leaded window scenes on vellum). A work can be finished in no time, especially when relaxing in front of my favorite TV shows after a long day at work, the Gym and making dinner… Continue reading… 0 comments

Note in the 2nd & 3rd Galleries, photo updates/upgrades of some of the pieces will be posted soon, including that of the Jared Leto portrait (current photo does not do it justice, esp. in eyes), and the modern vase mixed-media painting. Also, currently working on 3-4 more paintings/mixed media works -- floral still life from Maui Botanical Garden trip, 30 Seconds to Mars portrait, Tiffany-like landscape, and another modern vase w/ peacock plumes. (Later, Mickie and Minnie dog pals portrait.) Please let me know if you are interested in these or other subject matter, what media you would like it in, style, the size and color scheme, because I do custom pieces as well… Continue reading… 0 comments
