Sunflowers and Snapdragons floral still life painting

Sunflowers and Snapdragons  Oil on wood  10" x 10"  $325.
My favorite part of this painting is the way the snapdragon stalk can be traced with the eye from the base of the vessel all the way to the top...  Something about the rich magenta/burgundy pulls it together.

The Fellow & Cat Art Show 2: The Sequel

The Fellow  Oil on wood  12" x 12"  Reserved for Cat Art Show 2:  The Sequel
You may have heard me mention that I miss floral still life painting on occasion.  So many muses inspire and time is limited... But "The Fellow" combines two of my favorites and I am really happy with it.  "The Fellow" is reserved for Cat Art Show 2:  The Sequel.

Goat II another goat painting

Goat II  Oil on wood  12" x 12"  $420.
Didn't quite capture the "spontaneity" factor (and pleasing brushiness) of the first goat painting here... But I like it.  Moving on!  Photo reference courtesy of Indigo Roth, visit his blog here.

Goat It's a painting of a goat!

Goat  Oil on wood  11" x 14"  $435.
I know, not what you were expecting.  Couldn't resist.  Author, photographer Indigo Roth posted an amazing photo of a goat on his blog... I asked him if I could use the photo as reference for a painting and he sent me several more!  (Thank you, Indigo!) Painting new subjects is so refreshing, maybe a few more goats after this one...

I'm Listening police car kitteh, cat painting

I'm Listening  Oil on wood  8" x 6"  SOLD
Husband calls this one "police car kitteh."  When I go to the Cleveland APL to shoot reference photos, some cats ignore me. (oh, the indifference)  Some seem to know exactly how I want to paint them and pose accordingly....  This is one of them.  Don't be surprised if you see her here again!
