Sometimes it doesn’t take much for me to be inspired to paint a particular subject. Just the mere mention ‘do you have a rhino?’ can do it. In this case, an owner of a construction company by the name of this subject asked me if I had a rhino. Of course I didn’t. Rhinos are … read more

October has been a catch up month after 30 days of almost continuous painting output, but also a month of hurricane threats and family emergency. All is happily behind me now, especially in happy outcomes, so time to refocus. During the 30 day painting challenge, I kept track of activity with each painting I posted. … read more
Day 5 September 2016 30 in 30 Challenge It isn’t easy painting to a quick turnaround deadline and accept the work produced in that time! And making it public is yet another challenge.

I know little about this bird except that when it flies across the wetlands, the red of it’s wings attracts my attention. This fella posed for me as he busily preened. This continues my black and red series.
Owls are a favorite of mine. I even nick-named my husband ‘Owlie’ when I met him. Something in the eyes… This owl began with it’s beak. It drew me right in, followed by the texture and color. Owls have such character, and I will never run out of subject matter. This painting continues the series … read more
