Working like crazy

Ok, I found this website which will sell prints (all sizes, frames, on canvas, all kinds of formats) of my artwork.  I get a percentage.  Seems like a good idea soooooo……

Take a look and let me know what you think.  And tell people about it too, Pleeeeeeeaaaassssse.  😀

Thanks.  More pictures soon.  I kind of had an anger attack today and threw some things around in my studio, arg.  No permanent damage to anything.  Heh.  Ah well.

Quick post

 Finished this one last night.  It had been sitting unfinished for years and last night I just wanted to to paint on something that I didn’t have to care about.  And then it turned out wonderfully.  Before it was so lack luster.  It turned out much darker-in color and mood- than intended when I started it.

All I can say is…Wow.

Wow, that I can finally update my blog again.  Okay, I was going to go into a rant about server errors, etc., but it’s working again so here’s what I have lately.

Part of the ‘candle series’.  Less serene than the others, but I am not always (or even often) serene and I am tired of holding back.

crow series‘3+2= a murder’ This is the first of the crow series.

‘The Rescue’ second of the crow series.

Clean up timeHeh, me.  Definitely time to clean up.

Website updated!

I’ve finally fixed all the bugs (okay, I figured out what I was doing wrong :p) with my website.  New paintings in all the categories.  New layout.  Hurray!  Take a look and let me know what you think 🙂

Technical difficulties? LOL hopefully fixed…or maybe not

Update 3/20/2011

Fixed the problem….or maybe I’m now going around my elbow…etc.  Heh.  Anyway, here are the sketches.  Wow, it feels good to have figured it out (and this was by blind luck and insane (my only kind) logic).

Alright, that last post didn’t allow my pics to show.  I’ll give it another try here.  First, I’ll let you know, I’m in the process of revamping my website  I’m hoping to have it done by the first week of March.

I’m in the midst of a series of oil paintings.  So far 3 are complete, with 2 more on the easels, another lightly sketched in on canvas, and several (not sure how many) that will follow.  They revolve around female nudes with lit candles inside the heads.  This is a concept that I began playing with 2 months ago,then it took hold of my mind and I have been working steadily on them since.   I’ll show some sketches now.

That’s it for tonite.  More soon.  I swear I’m getting better at this.

A new year and new paintings

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

This year has been amazingly busy.  However, it is terrible of me to go so long between updates.  So now, time to catch up.  This will be “The Year of Productivity.”  Heh.  I do have a goal for producing paintings regularly.   It’s ambitious, but I am capable.  Keep watching 🙂

On my easel and drawing table at the moment.



Keep in touch.


Ah, there it is.

It has been way too long since I last posted.  Going to have to work on that.  Here’s the latest finished painting (finally).   ‘Woodland Council’ is 24″ x 40″.  I’ve been working on this painting for months.  All I can think right now is thank goodness its done!
