30 Days 30 Paintings The Round Up

Well it’s February and the 30 Days 30 Paintings Challenge has ended. I had hoped to finish up with 3 additional paintings but I had to leave them in progress last night when they weren’t pulling together the way I had wanted. Nevertheless, I still had a fabulous month full of lots of new paintings. …

Nori- Day 30 Challenge Painting

30 Days 30 Paintings. A challenge month that always yields surprising results for me. And by surprising, I mean good surprising.  And this style is no exception. I have a huge background in art history which I’ve finally been able to forget for the most part. But some things just stay. Like the warm rich …

Not Moose – Day 30 Challenge Painting

30 Days 30 Paintings is leaping to a close. I can’t believe how fast January went by. And how many things happened. I painted like a mad person. I went to an amazing and fun Con. I’ve beaten my weight lifting personal records every single time I was at the gym. I love these challenges …

Mickey Mouse – A Nine Part Commission For Andrea

This can technically count as nine paintings for 30 Days 30 Paintings. The challenge is nearly done and I’m sorry to see it ending. But this is a commission for someone who has always had my back. Who bought my art before anyone else did. Who alternated between patting me on the back and telling me to …

You Have Your Moments – A Commission for Jenney

Jenney commissioned two paintings from me and I am so thrilled about that. You see, Jenney picked moments that I forgot about and would never have thought to paint. Moments from epic movies and shows like Empire Strikes Back. I haven’t painted ANYTHING from Empire yet, which meant I had to rewatch the movie (it’s …

Bullitt – A Commission for Jenney

It has been FOREVER since I last painted. Between recovering from Kitchener Tri Con and having a series of unfortunate events happen, my studio has been completely neglected. And also my mental health, because if I don’t paint, I get grumpy. Like hangry but instead of food, I need to paint. Technically, I can include …

Hell – Day 13 Challenge Painting

I’m running a couple of days behind but still on the board with the 30 Days 30 Paintings challenge.  It’s been a busy week of painting and prepping for this weekend’s show in Kitchener. If you’re in the area, Tri Con is one of the only winter fan conventions in the area. Come by and …

Snape

My heart is completely broken with the passing of Alan Rickman. A man of such skill and talent; he could change the meaning of any sentence with the tone of his voice. He could project any character, whether they be bland or complex, and make them completely, unequivocally his. This is no surprise given his Shakespearean …

A Willing Heart – Day 10 Challenge Painting

It’s January and you know what that means? Time for a painting challenge, 30 Days 30 Paintings. The goal is to be creative in some way, every single day. It’s an excellent challenge because there’s a measure of accountability, which I need, and of course, a reason to paint. Okay, I don’t need the reason, …
