What I am working on Today

22x21 oil on panel 2012
Sweet relief! I am sooo glad to get this painting onto canvas and out of my system! I have been thinking about it for so long! With little leaf vine and a small, bright orange koi added hopefully I will sell this. Disappointed in the photo where no justice is done, looks more realistic and somewhat sophisticated in real life. I am finding lately I am no photographer. It is much easier to capture a good, accurate watercolor for me, I suppose because the surface is (toothy?) -artist term for porous, so glare is rarely an issue. ok back to work...

9x11 watercolor 2012
Ok, I'm in full baby mode. My best friend is having a baby and as due date gets near, I have to say, I am Soooo excited! So much so, I'm even painting newborn's!! :) I dove right into this painting with no sketch so I got into a little trouble here and there because, as most of you may not know, watercolor is very unforgiving. Reworking can be scary and extremely tricky. Painting all these delicious little wrinkles was good practice for all the paintings of our little Sophia that are surely to follow in the near future. I can't wait!
