Check out this Etsy treasury I managed to grab and curate this afternoon, it runs until Wednesday evening.  Features artists from EBSQ, WWAO, Interior Design Team, and Vast Team.  In honor of my black cats and in celebration of Halloween. 🙂

Stop by and check out all the great art in this Etsy treasury, put together by a fellow EBSQ artist Torrie Smiley, and be sure to check out her Etsy shop as well!  She was nice enough to include my pumpkin amongst all these treasures!

new little still…

October 22, 2008

Finished this little 6×6 still life while at the art show at Living Gardens a few weeks back.  Figured I might as well be arty and paint while sitting there, right?  This was fun, lots of texture and layers of color, I had fun with my palette knife!

For sale on Etsy now!

poodle commissions

October 15, 2008

Finished up these two commissions last night.  Portraits of two beautiful black standard poodles.  Barron was described to me as the wise one… is his portrait….it’s 8×10 oils on canvas…


And this is Max, described as the goof.  I loved painting them both!  This one is 8×10 as well.

I’ll be at this art festival tomorrow!

I’m excited to share that I received a Member’s Mention award in the Bi-annual Spam and Trout show on EBSQ!  The prospectus?  Anything goes, as long as both Spam and trout are represented!

It’s my first time entering this quirky show, and I’m so glad I did!  Check out all the great artists and entries…my friend Vicky Knowles won Member’s Choice!  Her entry is fabulous, congrats Vicky!!

Here is mine, a digital photograph…..I originally wanted to photograph a still life of spam and trout, with an old master’s feel to it. The raw fish, sliced lemons, knife, as if someone is having a glass of wine at the end of the day and getting ready to prepare dinner. And just in case it doesn’t turn out, one can always pop open a can of Spam, right? However, what often happens in my household, a cat has to get involved, and in this case, that cat is Nikki. Spam or trout for dinner? Well, I think it’s quite clear what Nikki’s choice is… Guess I’m having Spam tonight…
