Irreverent, fun, and lots of textures with a new-to-me media.

This one gives me bragging rights: other than the mosaic by another artist that was beautiful and unfinished, this was the most quirky painting entered in the juried exhibit. Honorable mention!

This was done during one of the Bakehouse figure drawing sessions. I love the curves of the figure and how the ink flowed from the brush.

The Bakehouse had a juried exhibit with the theme "SIN," and months before the deadline I decided to enter. That was a first time for me, planning out five paintings for an exhibit months ahead. Well, I entered five paintings, and not a single one was accepted. After seeing the show on YouTube, I decided it might be because I am too traditional. Still, I love this piece.

Andy and I enjoyed a motorcycle trip this past summer. It was the color, information, and reference photo overload for art junkies that he predicted for me. Even in late August, some leaves were already turning gold and red.

The most influential to me as an artist was the Deepwater Horizon event in the Gulf of Mexico. The oil spill is still affecting life in the waters, but the media circus has ended. Researchers have taken over the areas...and we have yet to learn the extent of damage. This painting is one of my favorites for it's pure accident, the fish I see, the water, the panic, and the need for survival.
