I have a couple of new paintings to show you. The first one is an angel holding a kitty. I have received a couple of requests for one like this, so here it is. For her gown I used some vintage sheet music out of an 1800's music book. I have been experimenting with different techniques for texture. On the angel painting, I used a heavy bodied acrylic on the background a then used a stamp to pick some of it up. There are lots of layers of paint here. The wings and halo have pearlized paint.
Crow Funeral was inspired by something I heard on a nature show. I have always loved crows, I find them to be very regal and intelligent. Did you know that when a crow dies, the others honor it by standing quietly around it for a few moments? This really intrigued me, so I had to paint it~ Both of these paintings will be listed on Ebay this week--Have a great day!
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
