Little Bird

I like the way this little guy turned out.

Yellow Bird

There is something much more intimate about painting on these poems than the way I traditionally paint on wood. Maybe it's just because the scale is so much smaller and it forces me to hold the page in my lap instead of up on the easel. I've been snuggling up on the couch with a pen and paper instead of staying down in my studio where I normally do all of my painting. This is great because I'm actually getting some work done later at night while I'm usually wasting time watching TV. Stay tuned for many more of these little paintings.

Pages and Pages

I've been having fun lately drawing on the pages of an old book of poetry that I found a few years ago at a thrift store. I already love old books, but this is a new take on an old obsession. Of course, I hope that other people like them too.

Going Gray

A couple of paintings in a bit more neutral pallette.

In the Blossoms

Here are two paintings that I'm currently working on (and actually liking quite a bit). I feel like they're getting close to being finished although I might add a darker purple/blue hue to the inside of the blossoms.

Set Design

Gretchen from Poems Art, the art publisher that I LOVE, just let me know that a set director may be using A Warm Summer Day I & II in an upcoming film or possibly on television. Something must be in the air these days. I'm hoping whatever show that it's used in will actually be shown in the U.S. so I'll have the chance of seeing it.
I think in my next life I might like to be a set designer. When I was a kid, our house was used in a made for TV movie (The Man With Three Wives staring Beau Bridges and Pam Dawber). It was a pretty terrible movie, but watching them transform our house was pretty amazing.
