Well, I made some progress today, but not much. With my wife at work and my 5 year old son and 2 year old daughter running rampant throughout the home like wild beasts as I try to paint, I'll take what I can get. I had to paint in bursts. During one of my breaks chasing the kids down I got sidetracked by some older work I came across. I shot some pics and will post some later. Very different than the murals and kids art that I've been painting but I am interested in discovering how that older work informs the stuff I'm doing now. Anyway, here is a pic of what little progress was made on "The Ice Skater and the Ermine."

Moany and Lalla's

I've been at the computer the past two days getting the new paintings ready for Moany and Lalla's over at Etsy. The prints look great and I think they show really well on etsy. I was hoping to have this series "Daydreams for the Ice Skater" done before the Olympics were over but I only have half of them complete and two more partially started so that's probably not going to happen. Where does the time go?

You can buy prints here.

Will the arctic paintings ever be finished?

Probably not before winter is over. Thought I would post a progress pic of the next one. I have painted over this one several times. I don't think my initial plan is going to work. It is an ermine leading our girl out of some underbrush. There is a lot of work left to be done on this one.

Sheep Sketches

I did these sketches for a client interested in a couple of paintings for their home. Should be some fun paintings if they go ahead with it.

Valentine's Day!

Roses on a budget! My wife loves white roses so I took some tissue paper we had in the basement and spent a ridiculous amount of time making 2 dozen paper roses. No water required.

T-shirt designs

I am doing some design work for some t-shirts. This design was rejected but I thought it was pretty cool.

Another Arctic Painting

The third painting. Our ice skater makes her way slowly across a creek in pursuit of an arctic fox who may or may not know the way to a nice frozen pond to skate on.
