It seems that season we call “holiday”, is upon us! The turkey still has a few weeks to gobble, and yet here I am lacing our windows with snowflakes and orbs. We artists know this is our season to shine. Like little elves in the night, cutting and tying and hanging, all in anticipation of revealing something new for our window shoppers to ooh and aah over! Keeping with the theme of small works this month, the gallery now has tiny prints in a variety of ornamental frames for the tree, a special gift, or all year long. Pop on in from the cold to say hello and pick something for your Christmas list. I’m sure you were good this year!
Finishing up oil fresco "We always return where we belong." This piece was commissioned as the sole piece of art for a beautiful little 800 sf Greenpod home.
I've been working on the railroad. No, I've been working on these little egg tempera paintings, Camouflage I and II. Such a delicate, painstaking medium, seems like hundreds of layers to build up. That is why many egg tempera paintings are on the small side. These creatures are blending well within their environment. It is quite a challenge to bring them out of hiding. I think this will be a continued series, more camo to follow...
This tiny egg tempera was especially fun to paint as it was a surprise for my dear friend Esther, for her birthday. She is crazy about frogs. And the color green. She is like a seester to me.
