Her majesty The queen . I have really found my niche in regards to portrait paintings. I enjoy creating these fictional Renaissance women so much! I am especially pleased with her! She is 12x16 painted on a cradled wood panel with painted sides. The photo does not do her beauty justice!
Took a mini vacation- tried to relax at home,( hard to do when you work at home!) Spent a couple of days in Cape Elizabeth Maine to see family, which definitely inspired me. I am so ready to go back to work but one last day today I am spending with Sam, my youngest son.
First on my agenda, is spending some time organizing for my licensing deal but I so much would rather be painting.
Edward Hopper's 2 Lights painting then and now. My sister lives on this street.
I plan on a couple of pieces and I am not sure which order but I am feeling another "Queen Of Everything" painting. I like to think I coined that phrase five years ago but I've heard it in songs so who knows! I also want to do a "Farm To Table" piece but not what you think! I've had that idea since my son and his partner started their organic farm a few years back. I need to create another "The Art Collector" as well. A much more updated version. All these ideas should keep me going for a while.
I am enjoying the sweetest bunch of bunnies living under the thistle in our yard right now. (Our yard is mostly weeds and clover) I had eye contact with a gorgeous red fox at dusk the other night. Thankfully not near my yard of bunnies! This is a magical time of year.
My new project is really taking shape today. Cats are always a favorite subject. I am so amused by their behavior. Dimensions of the painting are 16x20. More guest appearances in this piece to follow.....
Completed on 6-16-2017 I love watching the many birds that stop by my yard. I love to hear their songs. Such sweet gentle creatures going about the business of the day while I paint. I was totally inspired by the Botticelli exhibit at the MFA lat weekend. This painting is 12x16 on a cradled wood panel with painted sides.
