Been lacking on posts. Need to get busy taking pictures of the projects I've been working on. I have been trying me hand at floral arranging since this fall. Couldn't wait for spring flowers so I made this this weekend. Let me know what you think.

9 x 12 acrylic on canvas for my step-daughter. Again my camera skills are lacking. Still working on that.

Here's another pear. This one is 8 x 8 on watercolor paper using watercolor pencil. Change of pace, I thought it would be easier than painting with a brush, boy, was I ever wrong. I do like the way it finally turned out.

My favorite little pig was published on a pork sausage label for a local meat packing company. I have misplaced the printed label but will post it as soon as I can lay my hands on it. He was colored in Photoshop and printed on roll label stock.

This little guy was drawn for a local storm shelter company. He even has his own website:
He began as a line drawing, colored in photoshop, and composed in InDesign CS2. His brochure was printed on a 2 color Shinohara press.

I'm am really loving these colors. Still trying to work out the flow from one color to the other. If you have any tips, thanks in advance.
Thanks to all who offered tips on the photographing of art. I'm going to work on getting better pictures this weekend.

The pear is a repeating item in my paintings lately. I love the shape and coloring of a pear.
This one is 18" x 24" on canvas panel in acrylic.
I need lots of help on taking better pictures of my artwork, either I wiggle or get a hotspot from the flash. Any pointers, anyone?

This one is 24 x 24 acrylic on canvas. I really enjoyed this project. The toes were extremely hard for me, I think I drew and erased them about 15 times before I got them close to human. This canvas hangs in a master bathroom. I matched the colors used in her bedroom. SOLD.

For the entire month of February, I have my artwork in the display cabinet at my local library. I have a lot to learn about displaying artwork but I'm pretty pleased with how it looks.

I want to use this blog as a place to put my artwork for show to family and friends.
This piece, acrylic on canvas, was so much fun to do.
