Happiness is...

Visiting with a patron from way back when and chatting about art over chai tea. Its times like that that make my job the coolest job in the world. (Thanks S and L!)

Almost finished my vacation - I'll be back in the studio on Monday! Looking forward to posting more stuff.

The Farm - Step One

Well, here we have the basic layout done. Now I'll start refining the edges somewhat and then the colours will start evolving into a closer match to real life.

The Farm - Rough Sketch

This sketch is my next subject, a commission of a farm for a great customer of mine. Check back over the next few days to see how it evolves. That number two you see in the corner is just to show that that is number 2 out of 3 choices I gave her for angles. She picked my favorite!

Sneak Peek - Stainless Steel Watering Can


This 14" x 18" acrylic on canvas is almost done. The subject is a watering can that my daughter gave me for my birthday. The flowers are these masses of pink petunias that I have billowing all over my front porch. I really enjoyed this piece.
I think it should be ready to list tomorrow - check back!
