I took this photo in my neighbor's zinnia patch. It will be the reference for my next acrylic painting.

I started this painting en plein air. Acrylic can be challenging outdoors. It was windy & hot, so my paints weren't cooperating. I had to finish it in my studio. Sometimes small paintings take more time than larger ones, especially en plein air.

It's your lucky day…, Or rather two days! All my downloads are half price through Tuesday, June 6, 2017.

I'm not able to travel to see my big brother this Easter so I used one of my coloring pages to create a fun e-card. The nursing home printed it and hand-delivered it to him. Much faster than sending it via the post office. LOL

New printable art prints ready to download, print, and frame. Fun farm animal on faux wood. I originally listed these in my Twistmo shop because they match some of my wall decals. But mixing downloads with physical items can get confusing.

I'm having so much fun coloring these samples for my listings!

This is the first of many coloring pages I'll be adding to my shop.

This is my first watercolor and gouache painting. It's on 3.5" x 3.5" Bristol. I have discovered I love working with gouache and combining it with watercolor adding a nice transparency option, since gouache is very opaque.

It's been a long time since I painted cards and sent the original to the recipient. Usually I reproduce a painting and print copies. Feels good to Know a few people will receive a true ooak original painting of mine.

I love painting in plein air. Unfortunately in the winter that's a little difficult. I did this painting/study last fall, and can hardly wait for the warmer weather so I can be outside painting.

This beautiful Monarch butterfly emerged on my sun porch last fall a little late in the season. I think of her often and hope she migrated to Mexico before the cold set in. I hope to plant lots of flowers this year for the butterflies.

I'm planning a series of different bird nests in different environments. All will probably be on 10 inch square stretched burlap like this one. I like to draw out my plan with an acrylic pen. Then I'll start painting the color.

My art journal is my way of exploring and studying a subject. It gives me inspiration for new downloads to offer in my shop.

No more dining room! I repurposed it on New Year's Day as my art studio. I even have a door to my deck so I can have "Open Studio" any time I want. How cool is that?

This is from October this year. A caterpillar decided my porch was a good place to spin her cocoon. See my next update for "the rest of the story".

It's done! I started designing this digital stamp last winter. That often happens with pieces, I start them but some of them take so much time that I can't seem to get them finished. Hope you enjoy using it. It would make a beautiful holiday card.

After several years of painting pet portraits with pixels rather than paint, I now use my style I developed to create clip art.

I used photoshop to create my chicken digital collage sheet.
