Bunnies 2

Oil on panel
24" x 36"

Here is my latest painting. I'm also including a detail photo so you can see what the piece looks like close up. As you might be able to tell, I like these chocolate bunnies. I loved painting the intricate patterns in the crinkled foil.

This piece took several months to paint, so I'm taking a break from larger pieces after this and will be painting a couple of the small marble paintings before I do anything else.

Still Here!

I haven't disappeared! I snapped a quick shot of my latest piece that's in progress, it's really kicking my butt. I am hoping to get it finished by the end of September. At this stage I've made one pass of color and am working on the second pass of color. The yardstick I use as a mahlstick.

Show at Angle Gallery

I will be showing my group of marble paintings in a group show with three other artists, at Angle Gallery in Pioneer Square in Seattle this Thursday, June 3rd, as part of the First Thursday Art Walk. Our works will be hanging in the hallway area. I'm including a link to the gallery for more info, and you can scroll down to the bottom to see a shot of the gallery itself.

This is a great group of artists that I'm involved with, we have very different styles and use different mediums, but we all support and admire each others work, and these women have been instrumental in helping me with advice and encouragement. If you're in the area, I encourage you to stop by!

Green Stripe

Oil on Wood
8" x 8"

This is the last in a series of marble paintings that I've been working on. I have really enjoyed playing with the different backgrounds and lighting situations of these pieces, but I'm definitely ready for something a little bigger! My next painting will be much larger, so it may be a little while before I post my next work.

Feature in Poets and Artists

I am thrilled to be featured in the June issue of the online magazine, Poets and Artists. This magazine features some of the best contemporary artists out there, including many photorealists,  and to be included in these pages is really humbling.

I've got one marble left to paint in this series. It's been really fun to attempt painting the different textures and lighting situations of these pieces.
