Painting a Day Project: #19

Last night's creation sitting outside on a warm summer night....there is something magical about doing art outside...another reason I have come to love Ashland, OR! This piece is a little larger than what I've been doing--12x16, done on heavy watercolor paper in my new favourite Moleskine sketchbook bought at Opus Art Supplies on Granville Island this summer. Sail on silver girl....

Painting a Day Project: #18

We had a whale of a time....maybe it's my recent whale watching trip with my dad in Victoria or the fun Papaya "Laughing Whale" art that we're all loving right now but I love this mammal and wanted to give him a little paint and paper today. And I love that this Orca wears eye shadow!

Painting a Day Project: #17

Painting a day? Well, life has crept in, as it does, and I'm sticking with my 100 Paintings Project but am adjusting to 100 total, rather than one a day...it feels great to be back after a little hiatus. So with no further adieu, I introduce you to "Boots", the cow-dog makeup wearing (cross-dressing?) Hunters wearing, polka-dot loving creature. I think he stole my mascara.
