Just A Few Things I’m Working On

Sometimes getting work done on Saturday can be tricky when you have two teenagers, a toddler and a 20+ item to-do-list. If you find yourself in a similar situation here is my parenting advice: ignore ALL of them and do what you want. Duh, right?

Yeah, I wish it was that easy. Somehow my daughter convinced me to drive her to a friend’s house 20 minutes away at 9 o’clock this morning. On my sleep in day, no less. Anyway, between playing taxi driver, bike mechanic and doctor (the toddler is a bit under the weather at the moment) I was able to get a few things done. Coral and I sort of took turns playing doctor. She got dirty doing yard work while I watched Elliott and then I got dirty painting while she watched him. Amongst other artsy business work like putting wire on the backs of paintings and making a post office run I am happy to say I started a few new paintings too.


Despite looking kind of pink in the photo, I assure you this is a very vibrant red.


This is the beginnings of a “fat bird” painting that I hope to have available in the online shop within a day or two.


And a full page sketchbook spread, which I will finish as soon as I’m done posting this blog.

I’m not sure if you like seeing paintings half way done, but I’ve always been a “behind-the-scenes” fan so I think they can be interesting. Also, I probably like behind-the-scenes stuff because I have stalker tendencies. Nothing you should worry about though. It’s not like I’m standing right outside your window watching you read this. Just kidding, I’m totally standing outside your window.

Be on the lookout in a day or two for a post where I’ll show you all of these completed. Since I, unfortunately, procrastinate from time to time let’s just consider “a day or two” to mean anything in the range from 1 day to 13 days. You know, just to play it safe.

See you soon!

Various Stages Of Organized Chaos

I like having a lot of projects going on at once. Actually, maybe I don’t like it, but it’s certainly a behavior I’ve grown accustomed to. Today has been no different, which I suppose means I am right on track with what I know best. I have a lot of paintings in progress at the moment. Here are a few of them for all you voyeurs that get off on behind the scenes stuff. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. We’re all voyeurs in our own little ways.

A couple of cell phone cases and two new pieces to add to the “mini painting” series.

These round pieces of wood are a lot of fun to paint.

At this point there is still a long ways to go with this one.

What started as a typical round floating head has turned into a octopus.
