Eating Watermelon

This is the third time that I have painted this subject.  I have done one ACEO and one 11″x15.5″ mixed media piece on paper.  This time around I have painted it on 11″x14″ profile canvas (3″deep).

This has been included in a treasury on etsy! http://www.etsy.com/treasury_list.php?room_id=18516

It is avaiable in my etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16805616

The Girl With The Magenta Hair

Hey! I was added to another treasury today! It is called The Little Red Coat http://www.etsy.com/treasury_list.php?room_id=18359

She stood silently in the winter night.  The cold air touched  the tip of her nose and flushed her cheeks.  She wiggled her nose to stop the tickle in her nostrils. She liked that feeling, when the hair inside her nose began to freeze.  It was an odd sensation but it meant winter was really here.

The snow sparkled in the moonlight.  How could she think it so beautiful and hate it so much all at once?  It was hard to explain but standing there, in the moment, with the snow softly falling around her, it was undeniably  breathtaking.  And for right now that was all that mattered. Perhaps that was the key to it all,  not resisting it so much. Not anticipating the months to come, but instead, just taking pleasure in the beauty of  the present moment.
This is a mixed media 12″x 16″ painting on wood stretcher.  It is 1″ deep and the sides are painted magenta. This painting is available here http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16805934

Halloween 2008

Here are the Spider Princess and the Spider Queen.  The Spider Queen won first prize for her costume.  I know, I know, I actually won first prize but I guess I’ll let her keep the ribbon. It is only fair.
