My 4"x4" original paintings have been accepted for the The 5th Annual Coaster Show at the La Luz de Jesus Gallery! Here are the final two of them completed. The mermaid with an octopus is "Octina" and the goddess with the betta fish is "Lovfina." They will be available from the gallery starting on September 1st. Most likely I will not be attending the opening, but I hope to be at the closing near the end as well as to visit at some point during the run of the show to try and get some photographs to share. The show information is below.
Edit: The first two are here.

Here is a sketch of a rose. Roses are so very near and dear to my heart that they recur with frequency in my work... I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in August. This is day 21.
This is a rough sketch.
Happy Eclipse Day!
I took these photographs of the sun during the solar eclipse from my front yard. At the last minute I bought some solar eclipse glasses (I called around 13 places on Friday and Saturday until I found someone local who had them in stock), I bought an extra one to tape over my camera lense as I read that the eclipse could damage camera lense. The image on the bottom is pretty much what the eclipse looked like to me through the solar eclipse glasses, the one on the top was at a different camera setting and I thought it was beautiful. I hope that you will enjoy the photos!
