I found this mixed media artwork of mine mixed in with a bin stashed with all kinds of unused art papers – today must be Bonus Friday! At the time I don’t think I was satisfied with it, but time heals all perspectives, apparently – LOL. Aaaaand, here it is:
It’s a simple plant, but of alien origin – scientists aren’t even sure whether those are petals or leaves, and they have made no progress in figuring out how the detailed scrollwork and patterns got there either!

I painted this abstract acrylic painting back in November, but forgot to post about it amidst all the holiday busyness, so here it is!
(Click the above image for your own prints for your wall.)
The original is 8×10 inches on canvas. When I’m painting in abstract I feel like I can more readily focus on paint colors and shapes and nothing else – so much fun!
I’ve also added this image to my shop on things like clutch purses, toiletry bags, tile boxes, ipad cases, t-shirts, sweatshirts, tote bags, etc – click any of the images below to browse!
As always, thanks for looking!

This is a light colored pencil drawing (‘light’ meaning that I let the texture of the paper show through, not pressing too hard on the pencils or trying to burnish the colors) of one of the little tufted titmouse birds that eat the seed off our back porch. (Click the image below to see a zoom or to buy prints.)
This little guy also shows up nicely on t-shirts and gifty items, like the sampling below (click to shop):

While I was painting this abstract watercolor painting, it became ‘obvious’ that the subject, abstract as it was, was a bunch of carnival balloons. Partially transparent, mighty colorful… balloony. I think what I like best about this is that it’s impossible for me to look at it and remain in a bad mood – LOL.
This painting is available in framed or unframed prints – just click the image above to see a larger version or to purchase – many sizes available. Thanks for looking!
Just a quick watercolor sketch of a (stylized/loosely interpreted) nautilus shell, on watercolor paper – guess I was in a summer/beachy mode at the time:

A number of years ago I bought a pack of 10 gel markers. When I started using them, I discovered that some of them worked very fluidly and some of them seemed to have dried up during their time waiting on the store shelf. Eventually I tossed out the ones that didn’t work, and decided to try to use up the ones that were left, on a sheet of cold press watercolor paper. What happened was this:
The colors that worked, worked really well, so I’d consider getting individual markers of this brand in the future, but I might not get an entire set again – we’ll see!
