8x8x1.5 acrylic on stretched canvas (click to enlarge)

Fluid of choice? How about a little Cup o' Joe? I like the way the underpainting breaks through in places. I may do a series of coffee cups. We'll see...

Lady with Cat

14x11 acrylic on stretched canvas (click to enlarge)

Here is the latest painting I have been working on. I had it about 90% done and then had to think about it for a few days. I finally decided on what to do on the background. I painted a bluegreen over the orange underpainting... and liked it. Whew! If I didn't like it, I would be in deep doo doo... for there is no command Z when you are painting. 

The pose for this painting was inspired by a pretty famous image. But this time I am not telling. If anyone can guess what it is, you will win a fabulous prize. To be determined later. Much later. Much, much, much later.

This is the little sketch I did after seeing the inspiring image. I thought painting a lady would be fun and the addition of a cat just makes it even better. 

So... it is February. I have had this blog up and running for over a month now. I am happy to be making at least a painting a week. I wish I had time for more but this is OK for now. AND... I have 10 of the most intelligent, most awesome, most sophisticated people on the planet that have clicked to follow this blog. You know who you are. Thanks.
