What I'm working on.

Working on this 12x16 piece.  So far I've done The  Cat Sitter, The Bunny Sitter so I figured it was time for a dog sitter.  Enjoying my new paints and brushes too.

Afternoon On Pine Point - New painting

Completed on 3-21-2017.  Pine Point is actually  in Scarborough, Maine  and extends for four miles along Saco Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.  I spent the weekend in Cape Elizabeth the next town over.  Three of my five sisters live there. It's a beautiful rugged area "Andrew Wyeth country."  Anyway, I used a few new techniques and did lots of glazing which gives such lovely luminous  depth as well. One of my more epic pieces.  Gracie made her way into the chinoiserie bowl along with a Maine woodland creature.  16x20 on a cradled wood panel.  Thanks for looking.

The journey begins

I've started a larger piece, 16x20.  I am at the very beginning stages and sometimes I have it all figured out and sometimes the painting figures itself out.  After spending the weekend in Maine I am inspired .

The Bunny Sitter- New Painting

So glad I was able to complete this piece today since I am heading out to Maine for a family party tonight. It's 11x14 on a cardled wood panel with painted sides.  I am quite pleased with my bunny sitter.  I worked on making her with a renaissance appeal.  The face reminds me of an opal  and more lovely in person!

Gabriela's Atelier ~New painting

Completed on 3-3-2017  .  16x12 on a cradled wood panel with painted sides.
I was initially inspired by Rene Magritte's painting  "Homage To Mack Sennett" 1934.  I love many things about his work -Surrealism, use of furniture ,objects, and birds to name a few. I would like to think there are guardian angles out there living among us.  
Thanks for looking.  For sale on my website and etsy shop.
