Welcome to the New Year Ya’ll!


It gave me cavities just looking at it.

So you may remember not too far back I did a Sunday sneak peek that bore a faint resemblance to Chewbacca and then never wrote anything more on it.

Weeeeeellll … what happened was I did complete the piece but it was so darn cutsie it was almost cartoonish. It was an Alpaca and though I tried very hard to keep the realism going it’s natural cuteness took over my art brain at some point. So it had to be destroyed so I could start again. Obviously this is not that Alpaca but I will try the other again soon. I will write more on my Alpaca Trio soon. This one is not yet officially named nor done (notice it’s not signed) but it’s up to the tweaking stage.

More cuteness

Now that the holidays are over and the gallery work will most likely die off into nothingness,  I plan to throw myself into creating. I love doing these small, fast pieces. I thoroughly enjoy the stress free, don’t care much if it doesn’t work out, bright and fun critters. Plus I still plan on building up a nice variety of farm animals and to that end there are these two. (Alpaca above and lil’ piggy below)


Lil’ Oiker isn’t done yet. I started it as a demonstration piece while doing a holiday open house the first part of December. It is supposed to be part of the Farm Animal Collection so I need to put in a background. ALL of them so far have the green but I hesitate on this one. I may well scan it in on the raw suede background before applying color so I have that option if I hate in on green. At any rate, it sits on an easel at the moment while I move on to other things.

I have a brief start to finish on the alpaca post coming soon.

I Got Piggy Quotes Dancing In My Head

While working on my perky pig here I kept having various quote from Babe the movie in my head. Like “What a fine little pig” and “That’ll do pig. That’ll do”

So here we are all done. I may crop a little more off the right like 1/2 inch but probably not. Once I say I’m done I just move on. Literally. Once I declared The Happy Hog finito I started yet another little oinker. Which is probably gonna be the title of that one. She’s 11 1/2 x 15 1/2 inches and my usual mixed media on suede board.

So unlike most of my sneak peek posts this one I figured I’d let you know what I’m up to. The piece measures approximately 10×16 inches and is tentatively called The Happy Hog.

As to the last Sunday Sneak Peek painting you wonder? Well it didn’t quite make it to finish. I will post a start to finish of it but in the end it was so ridiculously cute I swear I got a cavity. Not my fault though, the animal itself was just that cute …
