Lovely Distraction

 This is my work space.  It started out really nice and organized but I can't ever seem to keep it that way.  Scott always comes in and shakes his head and wonders how I can find anything, never mind create works of art! I'm pretty busy and I don't really care I guess.  All I need is my easel,  my paints and I could work anywhere if I am inspired.  These two guys are somewhat of a lovely distraction as well.
I am working on a few commissions right now, one will be heading off to the Land Down Under and the other to the Big Apple! As usual,  my son Sam will be coming home for the Thanksgiving break and then for a week at Christmas.  This is my busiest time of year and yet I have the least amount of time.  This happens every year but somehow it all works out. 
I'm pretty excited about 2015.  I have been asked to illustrate a children's book on climate change . It's quite an honor for me.   It's part of a bigger global project involving some amazing artist's and writers.  More info to follow.  In case I don't have a chance to write another blog post, I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday with your loved ones.

Rumble In The Jungle-New painting

My husband and I are quite obsessed with our two cats.    I am posting way to many pictures of them  on instagram .   I catch myself watching them play for way too long especially when they are in my studio.  Like miniature leopards with their spots and stripes  Way too cute! Continuing with my animal theme I thought it was time to paint another leopard.  I would have a real one if I could! This painting is 16x12 painted on stretched canvas with painted sides. With the holidays approaching this painting would make a lovely gift for a children's room or any cat fan!  For sale on my website and etsy shop.  Click links below to purchase.

The Perfect Space-New painting now available

Completed on 11/8. I was taking Sam home from a visit down a winding road and a huge deer ran in front of my car. I was able to stop in time. It shook me up but didn't seem to faze Sam. It was very beautiful -I always like those moments are a good sign. I was inspired! This painting was created with great love.  click the link to purchase- or
