I wanted to post pictures of my paintings in a somewhat chronological order, but I don't have any decent pictures of anything right now. Except this one, that I painted as a Christmas present for Derek. It's unframed so it was easy to slap it in my scanner. It doesn't have a title yet. And it looks much better in person - the metallic colors don't scan well. Painting on paper is a new adventure for me. I have been a canvas girl to date, but I made Christmas cards this year and was fascinated by the way the paint looked on paper. It was like making my own marbled paper. So I have headed in a new direction and have no idea where I will end up. Must have been a good decision, since Derek sold four of these pieces Christmas week. What a lovely gift THAT was!
My new art supplies got here today! If http://www.dickblick.com/ ever breaks up with me I will cry like a baby. Each of the three sketchbooks I ordered came shipped individually. In big boxes. Hmmm. And I apparently placed my order very late at night, with only one eye open, because I got some funky weird paint colors. This could be exciting ... or a tragic waste of funky weird paint.
