I made some new stationery with Little Red Riding Hood. No big bad wolf though... I'm thinking that's in the past and now she can pick flowers without worry! I actually did this painting just for the front page on my website, but when I was done I thought "stationery!" It's fold up stationery, which I've always been particularly fond of. < I've also got some new matted prints. I did these paintings specifically to fit these mats, which I love and have been holding on to for a couple years as I tried to figure out what to do...
Christmas and the new year have certainly been busy! Poor blog needs an update. Let's start with something simple--I finished a new painting over the weekend. This is something I was slowly working on since I visited the Georgia Aquarium in August. What an awesome place!! This piece was inspired by the sea dragon and coral there.
Here are some new paintings... The tropical birds in the paintings above are the Jamaican Tody, the Rufous-crested Coquette, and the Resplendent Quetzal. How's life? I'm moving a week from today, so I'm pretty busy with that and also excited! But mostly, I miss Fria.
I just updated the shop with prints of all my bird nests paintings, and two originals. The update includes prints of these three new pieces: And this new one: That one is titled "Lord God Bird" after the Ivory Billed Woodpecker. I had been wanting to paint one for a while, as I've been following the story on this awesome website about it. I hope they find them! I'm not sure I did the bird justice, as there are quite a lack of photos.
I've finally started some new paintings. It's been too long! Here is a glimpse of the works in progress. Yes, the paint is a work in progress in itself. The palette is getting low, but I really enjoy using up all the paints and then refilling them all at the same time to start fresh. It gets to be a fun challenge mixing the paints as you run out of colors.
