Happy Mother's Day! Original Big Eye Gothic Fairy Mermaid with Flapjack Octopus Friend Painting...

 


Octina and her flapjack octopus friend and I are celebrating mother's day today!  We hope you have a wonderful one.  I remember reading somewhere that "mother" is a special word for "love" and it really stuck with me.  I cherish the wonder that is the good fortune I have in my beautiful mother and the amazing moms all around...

Happy Halloween! Original Big Eye Wednesday Addams in a Cemetary Painting...

 


So, I didn't finish my scarecrow painting, my massive household project has been eating almost all of my time and energy; but Wednesday Addams and I wanted to wish you a happy, safe, and spooky Halloween (okay the safe is from me...).  The painting is 11"x14" acrylic with texture in some of the cemetary tombstones on canvas, framed.

WIP Work in Progress! Original Big Eye Scarecrow Painting...

 


This is the start of this big eye scarecrow painting, I'm working on her for Halloween, but I may not finish in time as I've embarked on a massive household project...  The original painting is 11"x14" duo oils on wood.  At this point in the wip work in progress, I've worked mainly on the background.  I think the next steps will be to continue on to underpainting...

Sketch Line Art Drawing for my Dia de los Muertos Day of the Dead Piece

 


This is the sketch I submitted for the Ontario Museum of Art Show Día de los Muertos: Recuerdos de Sabores/Flavorful Memories Exhibit.  The theme was memories and food and I decided on a whimsical headress of pan dulce that was composed of sweet bread that I shared with my grandparents on the head of a maiden kissed by her ancestor.


I plan on sharing some work in progress views of the piece as well as the finished piece on Dia de los Muertos, but if you'd like to see the original completed painting in person, it's up at the museum.  The information is below.
