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

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
