Cleaning my studio and clearing my head to make room for some new art. Bigger art and a more free vibe.
My studio space is not huge and longer than wider - it is only 10 ft wide!
Space is at a premium, especially storage space for paintings.
So over the next week or two I will be posting some here for sale ON SALE in the hopes that they will find good homes and get up on some walls to be seen!
This is the first and honestly I love this painting. The pigtails, the color, it works. Link to purchase is below.

Killing many birds with one stone on this night : keeping my skills up, getting to paint with a room full of talented artists, keeping the kid busy, quality time with son and he made a few bucks! Win,win, win.
Here is my friend Kerry's painting of Harry

Well January flew by.
I'm at the beach a lot walking the dogs and heart rocks fill my pockets. Resisting their charms is impossible for me. Remember I wrote this post about collecting heart rocks? I'm still at it.

These were done with my pre-K class of 4 year olds.
I had them trace a circle and after we looked at photos of snowflakes and talked about them a bit they had to draw their own. They used light blue and gray crayons at first - this avoids the "I can't see what I'm drawing" comments that are inevitable if you give them white. Trust me.
When they were happy with their design we went over their lines with white crayon - rubbing down super hard. (I find they draw so lightly and timidly sometimes. I am constantly trying to get them to make firm clear lines. Why is that? I blame markers.)
Next I let them loose with the water colors. I had planned on them just using blue and purple but they had other ideas and that was fine with me.

Remember last weeks Studio Peek? I'm busy painting those big panels. Stay tuned.
Here is a little beach painting - one of my favorites and still kicking around the studio.
