A sailboat on the ocean painting, "Drifting."

This small 5"x7" original painting titled "Crossings" is inspired by a photograph I took when I was on a boat in San Pedro. It is largely ocean and sky; with a little land, a sailboat, and part of another boat to the far right.

"Drifting" is the Illustration Friday theme for the week, and this reminds me of that. A day out on the ocean with very few worries.

A faerie, her friend, and a hot air balloon.

This painting was inspired by the Illustration Friday theme "balloon." I discovered that I paint too slowly to be able to finish it in the alloted time of one week, so I just posted the pencil sketch that I'd drawn on the canvas that week. It took me a while to complete the painting, but now here she is:

This painting is titled "More Than One Way to Fly," is acrylic on canvas, and measures 11x14 inches.

6x6x2009 art show and "Unfold"

Edit: This painting has sold, thank you!

It has been a while since I've had anything to post and also since I've had anything to post it on. My old internet computer crashed and I needed to replace it. So, I am now writing from my new machine. Genki, genki!

This flower painting is titled "Red, Red Rose," is painted on gessoed acid free watercolor paper, and measures six inches by six inches.

It was painted to participate in the 6x6x2009 show at the Rochester Contemporary Art Center in New York. The show is running from June 6th to July 12th. Every entry is 6 inches by 6 inches square and online purchases are an option. My piece number is 1185.

I also felt that this painting reflects the Illustration Friday theme for this week. It is of a red rose bud just beginning to "Unfold."

I actually did finish the painting More Than One Way to Fly for the last Illustration Friday project I participated in, but I will save that image until my next posting.
