Starting a painting habit over on the Instagram. I'll post the more successful one's here. Come join me?

hello, bloggerland!

I'm totally enjoying my Lisa Daria Kennedy hangover. My head was so fuzzy with thought about it, I boiled my eggs for an hour and a half instead of my typical 16 minutes this morning. Oh well, we made egg salad. I can't urge you enough to look her up and if she comes to your town please take her workshop. She's an incredible artist and super knowledgeable not to mention a wonderful teacher and a cool chick to boot! It was a real game changer and I am looking forward to filtering what I have learned and applying it to my stuff going forward. Painting is going to become my new daily habit. There could be worse things, right?

Primitive Portrait

Just sunk my teeth into Mindy Lacefield's Primitive Portraits class. If you haven't taken one of her She paints with such ease and that's something I've been searching for in my own process for like ever. I referenced a photo for this one and I think it looks a lot like my subject. It's a surprise gift. There is nothing better than the gift of art!!

 Email me if you are interested in a commissioned kitty portrait.
I would love to paint one just for you!

Here kitty, kitty!

I'm a dog person painting cats?!?!
The top one reminds me of Gus, the only cat I've ever had. He would play fetch and lived in my first apartment I shared with my sis. When I moved in with my now husband, I don't think he thought Gus was a part of that deal but the cat eventually grew on him. Then a tumor grew on the cat and we put him to sleep when he was only 5 years old. Poor Gus - the only cat I'll ever have! 

Anyone recognize these kitties??
