10 min Ladies - abstract portraits

Good Morning All. Ive had the luxury of the kids sleeping in this morning so I got a few 10 min portraits done. I am actually very pleased in how they came out. They are bright, fresh.. and the best part they actually look human. ;)

3 * 3.75 in
acrylic on 600lb rough watercolor paper



On a side note, My wonderful husband has been modeling for me over the past few weekends, I started out with 3 - 15 min sessions of quick sketches.. which turned out so good, he has allowed me to paint him from life. I have never done anything like this and it is so exciting. :) After a 1 hour session - from sketch to blocking in local color - it already looks like him. I hope to get a picture today while it is nice outside and get it up sometime this weekend.
Hope you enjoy

Colorado Street Corner and another Afternoon Tea Miniature Painting




Been enjoying the last few days of summer with above normal temps. So we have been putting the gardens to bed and canning up our non-existant garden this year. But I have managed to fit a few mini's in this week. They both measure 2.75 * 2.75 inch and are painted with acrylics.
Hope you enjoy

PEI Frozen Boat and Border Collie


Every once in a while I get a chance to stop by my favorite artists site and participate in their weekly drawing event. You try and complete a painting in 2 hours from 16 reference images provided by a different host every week.
This week I managed to get 2 done during nap. I guess when you are on a roll it just flows out of you, it also helps that I havent unpacked my travel painting bin from holidays,;) oops, so I had all supplies ready and at hand.

Objects in Mirror are Closer Than They Appear - elephant painting


I was inspired to paint this big momma elephant by a reference photo taken by "exfordy" over at Flicker. Its not a position that I would want to be in. According to the story, the week before a Japanese tourist was killed after getting out of his car to take pictures and admire these magnificent animals. We have the same problem here in Banff.. ppl getting out of their cars to admire the baby bear cubs, or the cute little baby moose. What they dont understand is they have very protective Momma's close by and they will give you a licken if your not paying attention. LOL
Anyways this is another miniature

Coffee Time - miniature acrylic painting

I dont know about you all but my day does not start without a hot cup of Java. Limited to 2 cups a day, but if I dont get my coffee and 10 min in the morning - just dont talk to me. ;) I think that is why my day starts at 4:30am, just so I can have a little quiet time before the chaos of the day starts. This is how I fill my extra time before my family gets up. Hope you enjoy

Cherub and Daisies - Still Life Miniature Painting


SOLD


Hi everyone, Hope everyone is staying warm. I thought I would try and get this one in before the big Hockey game starts. For those who dont know it is the Heritage classic an outdoor professional NHL game between Calgary and Montreal. Only the second time being played in Canada! Well it is -30 celcius with the wind chill so it will be interesting to see who will be victorious without to many injuries. I dont even like hockey but it is part of my life since getting married so...i thought I would share my pain... ;) lol
Anyways Hope you like the new mini
2.75 * 2.75 inch on stretched canvas comes with a mini display easel

mini landscapes

2.75 * 2.75 inch acrylic on stretched canvas SOLD
2.75 * 2.75 inch acrylic on stretched canvas SOLD
2.75 * 2.75 inch acrylic on stretched canvas. SOLD
These all come with their own mini easles for display purposes for a total measurement of 5 inches.
Sometimes I think I should have called myself "paint in my hair and kids at my feet" These last few weeks with the holidays and a constant stream of house guests that have been here WAY longer than expected due to flight cancellations have left me a little more then frazzled and in desperate need of a vacation. :) But I have been able to sneak away and get a few of these mini's completed. Now hopefully I can get a chance to complete my sketchbook in time. :O
Until next time
