I've been thinking a lot about painting lately.  What?? Shocker!  But I have a dear friend, someone who I look up to for lots and lots of reasons but one reason is that she is a very accomplished and talented artist, and lives an artist's...

Wish these were on the menu for tonight....

I was going squirrelly so I painted this fish.  A rock cod.  Don't ask me why the bright orange background.  Just felt like it.  A teacher told me to do the opposite of what you would expect. Does he look a little worried? Excellent day of painting,...
