A Gift for My Niece

My niece just turned 10. Her room colors are blush, white, and gold. How gorgeous is that?? This girl has GOOD taste! I did this painting for her with her room colors in mind.

This is a larger painting -- 20" x 20". And according to my sister, my niece was excited and said "I know exactly where it should go in my room!" when she opened it. That makes me SOOO happy!! I'm always so happy when my paintings find a good home.

A Painting for a Good Cause

This was a sweet little canvas (10" x 10") that I donated to a silent auction locally. The auction was to help raise money for treatment for a 16 year old boy who has cancer. He is a darling boy who has done a few plays with my daughter. The whole situation is heartbreaking. I'm wishing him and his family so much hope and miracles.

A Gift For My Sister

My sister has a Fall birthday and her house is our gathering place. This little painting is for her birthday.

The painting is 7"x5" and I did it on a wood sign purchased on clearance from Kohls. I bought a bunch of these box signs and painted them with first white, then black gesso. And they made a great painting surface! I like finding new uses for things and finding inexpensive things to paint on!
Here's an edge view of this painting so you can see how thick the sides are.

Newest Painting - Glasses Girls No. 1

I'm doing a series of paintings for the optometry office where I work. This fashionista is the first in the Glasses Girls series. The glasses are cut from wood and attached to the canvas.

I will take pictures of the series once they are all done and hung. But to get an idea of size -- the glasses are 22" across. So for me this is a BIG painting. I usually work smaller than this. But I like the impact of a larger painting.

18" x 24" acrylic and wood on canvas

She's based on a sketch I did years ago but have always wanted to turn into a painting.

For most of the year I'm pretty meh about this color scheme. But come October and November I want EVERYTHING to be red, yellow, orange, and brown! Can you see the word in my color doodle? I pictured it being a lot more prominent because the letters are colored in with Papermate Flair felt tips and the rest is colored with Prismacolor Colored Pencils. But it still sort of fades into the rest.

I am so happy it's Fall! It's my favorite time of year! Now if the weather would just cooperate and cool down, that'd be great.

Newest Painting - Constance

This little gal is based on a sketch I did years ago. I've wanted to put her on canvas for a while...and here she is. I kind of love her sweet shyness.

I haven't been sketching and doodling as much in my Bullet Journal because I've been doing more of that in my sketchbook in preparation for new paintings. Stay tuned for those. But I do always find time for lettering.
