29 faces, three, four, five

I’m still behind – no surprise there! – but slowly catching up. This adorable little fellow was face #3, painted on a 4x4in canvas panel. He just looked so sad and hungry with his bib tied around his neck, all ready for dinner! And he […]

The 3 best things I did for my art in 2013

2013 was the year that I finally began to feel that I had found my style, and really began loving my paintings. I became comfortable calling myself an artist.   This is the third time I’ve done this review of the previous year, and each […]

Make Waves!

It’s time to stop worrying about what other people think and just have fun! More finger painting fun with this girlie, and although she’s not quite as loose as the last two I’m still quite happy with her. I’m not quite sure whether she’s actually […]
