All Eyes On You!

Here's three little paintings that will be at the Blue Gallery's Wonder Wall exhibit:


 "Adventurescence"
oil on illustration board
2"x2"
2011




"Aqueous Humor"
oil on illustration board
2"x2"
2011
   



 "Vitreous Lustre"
oil on illustration board
2"x2"
2011

These were framed by Jim Svetlecic at State of the Art framing here in town.  I'm so excited!  I've never had anything professionally framed before and I think I'm pretty much spoiled now.  I wish I could afford to do it for larger paintings...

Oil Paintings

Here's a peek at the oil paintings that I promised. I don't often have original oil paintings in my Etsy shop, and I figured that maybe I'd see how these did. I wish I had a stash of finished work just laying around to sell, I suppose that's how some artists work. But instead, I sell (or try to sell) paintings just as soon as they're dry enough to handle and frame. I guess first of all because I have no room in my small studio to store finished pieces, and second of all, why would I sit on these instead of putting them out there into the world? I guess if I were working on a series where the paintings had to show together to make sense that would be different (and I do have some ideas for a series, but that's far off in the future).

So here's some fresh paintings to peruse, photographed just a few minutes ago:

 "Stare"
