Small Wonder

A man came up to me and said. " I heard you can paint " he handed me a wallet picture of a baby.  I asked who it was and he said he did not know.  So here is his small wonder.

I find myself looking around Facebook. Not just for the news of what people are doing in life. But, the pictures I love. This is one that I found. Its Erin's daughter Muddy. Just a fun picture. and on Erin's page most of them are. I started because I wanted a picture of them both for the Kat Project. And I am sure that will happen too.

Four Steppin

A picture taken by mistake showed me the world in a different way. I guess I never really look at feet in pictures. I look at faces. but, Feet have a personality all there own.

Nickel 2

I never have figured out who my kids have gotten to be such hams in front of the camera. But, I love it. You will never see the same face from them twice. and when you get the four of them together its a blast to watch them try and out pose each other. This one that I was told looks like a cereal killer is my lost boy Nickel.

Buy Me

I had fun with Moxie. Actually I am having fun with these small paintings. I am learning not to stress the small stuff. I have a huge silent art auction tommorrow that I said I would help with . My first thought was not to do what I need to do for me. But, I am going to do my small stuff first. I like to help but, its not fun when I keep thinking about what I need to do for me. Enjoy Moxie I did.

Ol' Blue

I wanted to try the pearlessence  type paints. I loved they way they shimmered in the bottles. Well, I can really see no difference on the canvas. Especially is you put a varnish on when your done. I did though get some of the coolest blues and greens to add to my collection. So, welcome Ol' Blue to the collection.

You There,Paint me Next

This is my Brother-in-law Bert. I went to my studio and nothing was talking to me. I have lots of paintings and sketches , all in different states. None were going to work today. So, as an Artist I have 100's of reference photos and 100's more ideas spinning around in my brain. I started looking through my pictures on my computer when this picture spoke to me. I could hear Bert with his deep gruff voice saying to me. "You There, Paint me Next" There was now way to say no. And really this picture has been in my file years. I knew I would use it sometime. Funny how we get our inspiration. Or maybe I should say thanks Bert for the Motivation.

Lazy Days

This is a daily painting that I had to walk away from a couple of times. But reminded me of what I love about what I do. When I go back to the painting I see it through new eyes and can continue. I hope that when people look at me art its the same for them. That each time they look at it, its through new eyes.

I am finding that I am enjoying the daily painting thing to much. I am working on spending more time in the studio and now I am doing that. it feels great!
I just have to learn to stay there and continue working on the larger pieces I have waiting. I do have a couple of competitions  that I will enter.  The canvas are drawn, sitting here in my studio and ready to go.

Larry & Chris

Larry and Chris is a painting that I did as a Christmas present for Chris. He had given me an old picture of him and his dad Larry that meant a lot to him. I had to make a copy of the picture for reference and he kept the original. That's when I knew how important it was to him and knew that it was going on my list of paintings I must do. Because for me to create something that connects with a person one on, one is the greatest achievement that there is. even though it was from Christmas. I forgot to take a picture of it before it left my studio. I have one now and wanted to share this father and son team with you,
