Chicken Scratch - A DPW Challenge Painting (Sold)

This week, the challenge to artists was chickens.  The challenge was posted by Carol Marine.  If you haven't checked out her art, please link to her on my Artists I Admire portion of this blog.  If you would like to see how other artists interpreted the challenge, link here!  This one is a 5 x 5 inch square little painting that will fit on an easel or can be framed.

I found an amazing artist who makes handmade wooden frames and sells them in Etsy.  You can see one of his frames on a posting of my painting "Hot Stuff" at my Etsy.  The frames are just beautiful and one of a kind.  So, I am enjoying these small paintings and seeing them in the frame just is gorgeous.

To buy Chicken Scratch, just go to this link!

In Memory of "Si"

This is a commission for a friend who had to put her beloved dog to sleep this week.  She and her family have lost a dear friend.  I was so nervous about doing the precious dog justice.  I hope that I did.

Rabbit Food

Guess I am in the mood for Easter.  I have had an Easter Bunny nutcracker for a long time and got it out and came up with this unusual still life.  I think it turned out fun!  Not sure about the background, so fellow artists, let me know if you have a better idea.  Happy Easter and Spring friends!

Oranges - A Vibrant Still Life

This may be one of my all time favorites.  It just painted itself!  Love the vibrant colors.  It is now at my Etsy but is just off the easel so will take a while to dry.

DPW Challenge

Carol Marine and her husband David have developed the Daily Paintworks Challenge.  This is a great place to browse and buy original artworks by very established professional artists and up and coming artists alike.  The latest challenge was a photo Carol took from a trip to Germany.  The previous challenge is also still in play and the benefits of that auction are all designated as aid to Japan.  Here is my challenge entry.  Follow this LINK to see the beautiful works.

Small Works on my Easel

I thought I would show you what a messy artist I am.  I am working on several small paintings in the 6 x 6 and 6 x 8 inch range today.  As you can see, the easel is a mess as am I!  But, the mess makes me really happy.  LOL!!!

Odd Man Out

This is an original oil 6 x 8 inch still life.  For sale when dry at my Etsy shop.  Enjoyed the simplicity of this painting and the beautiful corals against the blue.  My rescue dog, Archie, was a big help as he was sleeping under my feet the whole time I was painting...except for the million times I got up to let him out and in to chase a few birds and squirrels.
