work in progress

This is my latest creation after the first sitting, once I have the composition laid out the way I like it, it's pretty quick after that.  This is 2 canvases and can be one piece or 2 separate

Red Bubble

Just got on a site called Red Bubble, they create things like tshirts, coffee mugs, throw pillows. I ordered a tote bag with one of my paintings and the quality was excellent, so that's what I am working on now.  Each image I upload, I want order on a pillow.

Latest Painting

An updated version of my musician with cats in lighter, brighter colors. Starting to paint again, I've been struggling with a frozen shoulder, I've painting smaller works because of it.

Rock & Roll Over

Who remembers this album?
this is a painting I did, it's 25x25 I think it's the best album cover ever. I'm thinking of doing a series of iconic album covers. We'll see though, it's a lot of work, I did this one for my first son who is 40, when he was 2 he loved Kiss & knew every word of every one of their songs.

blank canvas

these are little stretched linen 8x8 canvases, I've decided my favorite surface is smooth linen.
I rub some color on them before I sketch something than paint. Also I have a huge roll of linen so I have tons of it.  Paintings coming up

Street Tango

I've been working on some large pieces lately so haven't been posting small paintings on DPW.
Kind of miss it, so easy to pack & ship small. This painting is sold and I will be getting it ready to ship over the weekend. It is an acrylic on linen, gallery wrap 36x52

oils or acrylics

I keep going back & forth, oils, acrylics. I have been painting with oils since I was  a kid & exclusively until several years ago when I started painting in my home. I love acrylics because they are fast, non toxic, they cost less, clean up with soap & water, you can totally finish a painting in one sitting, they're great. The oils are what I know, they're like a part of me and when I work in acrylics I start missing the oils. They have a luminosity that acrylics don't, they have a buttery texture that just doesn't translate through acrylics.  These 2 6x6 paintings are from the same photo of Exumas. I changed the people a little, but it's the same picture. The top one is acrylic, the bottom is oil.

The lighthouse in Hopetown, Abacos. I spent a lot of time there with my then boyfriend on his sailboat. We anchored out in front of this beautiful scene many times.

a scene from one of our many explorations of these beautiful islands
