Today I once again drew something I can’t show you because it’s a commission that’s a Christmas surprise for a collector’s loved ones. What I can show you instead is this layered selfie I made with the Procreate app on my iPad. I think it’s pretty amazing! I’ve always wanted to layer images like that.Continue reading “Layered Selfie”
John painted an abstract rendition of Alexander Ross, and it’s so beautiful, totally capturing his essence, that today I just had to try my hand at it as well. It was a beautiful day too, the leaves of the trees shining red against the sunny blue sky. I almost didn’t want to go to theContinue reading “Abstract Carousel Horses”
Today it was so beautiful outside I just had to be in nature. I took myself for a long walk at the Arboretum. I saw turtles sunning themselves on rocks. They looked so happy. I think I must be part turtle too because warm weather and sunshine means everything to me.
Today, after coffee and some great conversation, my friend left, the portrait of Lucy the cow in tow. I prepared for my first large birthday painting party. This ended up being so much fun! Nine ladies came over, enjoyed food and drinks and a tour of the gallery, played with Holly, and had a fabulousContinue reading “After the Party”
My friends and I had a lot of fun today. There was good food and sunshine and even a little bit of shopping. I think we all needed it. We all needed a break from our routine and a day of leisure. It was good to catch up. All of our lives have changed dramaticallyContinue reading “Love Scene”
Holly and I have houseguests tonight. Two friends who have known us for a very long time, who were there actually when I got drunk at a gala nine years ago and ended up bidding on a Boston Terrier puppy.
Sully Bush, the amazing service dog who took care of President H.W. Bush through his final days, is in New York, and staying at the Plaza. I learned this from Instagram, where I saw a picture of Sully lounging in his lovely room at the iconic hotel. Of course, I couldn’t resist painting that image!Continue reading “Sully at the Plaza”
Photo inspiration @lapresqueparisienne This was inspired by a photo I found on Instagram – the view from a tiny but cute hotel I once stayed in on a winter trip to Paris. My room was very small but the view of rooftops made it a wonderful place to be. I remember not wanting to leave.Continue reading “Winter Trip to Paris”
Today it was cold. And I mean really cold. Like bring your plants inside so they don’t freeze cold. My least favorite kind of weather. Still, I managed to have a great day. In the morning I met with Ryan to talk about how my business did this year and how I can grow nextContinue reading “Gingerbread Houses”
This little guy looked very confused and awkward without his harness. I finally figured out what was wrong with him and added it. It changes the whole painting. Details matter so much, on carousel horses and otherwise.
