Sometimes.... paint something, somewhat intuitively, and you just love it.  It has faults, it has irregularities, but there is something in its essence that speaks to you.  This is one of those paintings for me!

I am calling it, "Over Coffee", and to me she is just absorbed in listening and understanding.  Yes, she looks like she REALLY needs some caffeine..but I find her engaged and engaging visually.

This one is 18" 24" and I used acrylic, inks, graphite, and pastels.

Not even Dry Yet!

Had to post this one as I am in love with it. I am in love with most of  my paintings when I finish them (kind of like a new boyfriend)!  Later, I will probably find something that needs to be fixed and I will fix it.

This is a result of an assignment about Frida Kahlo--yes, you are right, the is not Frida--and she is suppose to have flowers in her hair, never have been good at following directions.  I use the class as a springboard for ideas and new painting techniques.  This technique is quite a bit busier than I usually do-but I like it.
This is 18 x 24 acrylic on paper....took awhile, so tomorrow is catch up day with the chores...yuck

Having so much fun!

Just having a lot of fun making 4" x 6" pieces of original art for a guild 'pop up show'!  Because they are small and take less time than a large piece they can just be done for exploration without concern as to how they relate to the rest of my work.  As you can see, there are multiple styles and mediums used.  I think I will just do these forever...and ever, and ever (should be a chorus to a song).  We were encouraged to do 10 and I am at about 20 I will just pick out the 10 I like most and the others will sell eventually...and I HAVE HAD A GREAT TIME doing them...Enjoy...
