Got My Eye On You

I don't know what kind of bird this is, I found him in the Morgue files, but I loved his face!

Parrot in Periwinkle

Remember that crayon from childhood in the box of 64 Crayolas called Periwinkle? It was sort of a cornflower blue. I always loved that one.

Middle Part

I have no idea why, but for some reason this guy makes me think of a professor.  Could it be the 'scholarly' middle part in his coif? I'm particularly pleased with this one.

Bird's Eye View

Since my friend Carol mentioned the Morgue files, I've found TONS of new inspiration in the form of free reference photos that I never would have been able to paint otherwise. I began on a parrot kick...a couple more to come over the next few days.

Fish Tale

I'm still loving the fish challenge on Daily Paintworks. You can see all the entries here. I liked trying to make the fish look like they were underwater...or at least partially.

Having a blast with The Fish Challenge over at Daily Paintworks. You can read more about the challenge and see all the entries here. I loved his 'blip' of a bubble.

School of Thought

Our youngest "spawn" is graduating from high school tonight. With all the thoughts and emotions that accompany such a momentous event...I thought the title was appropriate. I painted this for this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge here

Blush

Am I allowed to say, this is one of my favorite paintings I've ever done. It's just one of those times when every aspect turned out the way I wanted it to. The color and delicacy of the petals, the greens of the leaves, the color and transparency of the shadow. These are all things that challenge me and I can't tell you how delighted I am with each of them in this painting. Thanks for letting me bask in the glow a bit. :o)
