  • Pink Thicket

    Pink Thicket

    Yesterday I made a really cool watercolor painting, that inspired me to create a similar painting with acrylic on an 8×10 canvas. Again it’s relatively simplistic, although, I had a broader color palette this time and did an undercoat of pink before applying the blue to make an interesting periwinkle sky. The fairy’s dress is…

  • Peak Above the Clouds

    Peak Above the Clouds

    Last night I sat down to paint the view from the plane as I remembered (except for the fairy, she just seemed fitting). It took a long time, because I thought that my 16×20 canvas was more appropriate a size for a mountain I could see from my neighbor’s window over the wing. I noticed…

  • Mountains in the clouds…

Initially I was going to call it “I’m mad, so very…

  • Pain in the Shadows

She’s a dainty fairy and can’t survive on her own, yet full of a strength that few can muster.┬áHer past full of hurt and crimes, she carries the world on her shoulders, but you wouldn’t know unless she showed you her pain hidden in the shadows. (or…

  • Fairy and Pixie Dust

    Fairy and Pixie Dust

    So today I painted my last canvass and as promised, spent a lot of time on detail and shades. I think it turned out beautifully – everything in the foreground has multiple shades and hues, some subtle, some obvious – topped off (actually I started off) with some pixie dust/sparkles just for fun.
