It has been a busy autumn and winter. I have been painting but not posting as much as I would like. Today there is a blizzard in New England so I am working on a larger painting on aquabord. And as always I take commissions. Especially popular are requests for paintings to celebrate the birth of a new baby, sea creature paintings and wedding place cards.
I am loving working with a mixed gouache for the background as I can control the evenness of the color much better than with straight watercolor. Bumble Puss has just delivered this little blob to Ms. Mercat and her friend is looking on appreciatively. Not so for the cloudy seahorse who is wondering when he will get his delivery. Spring has sprung and yellow, blue and purple are the colors of the June irises I have in my yard.
I wanted to mention a wonderful blog by a high school friend of mine. I was always jealous to see Andie carrying her art portfolio around the halls as my parents wanted me to take all college directed courses which somehow left no room for art. Her blog is an eco-conscious person’s dream.
Her suggestions on how to make a spray that attracts beneficial insects instead of using toxic chemicals, and how to repurpose tomato cages, to decluttering projects is quite wonderful. Andie has been a writer and an editor for years but devotes a lot of time to environmental efforts. Her blog synthesizes both. Check out one of her post here http://www.thegreenqueenofmod.com/memorable-masterpieces/ on saving children’s art and consider signing up while you are perusing her posts. She’s also on Twitter @greenqueenofmod.
As to Bumble Puss, this painting is 6″ by 6″ Ink and Mixed Media on Aquabord, varnished and framed. $150.00 plus shipping.

I have been working up a series of funny bunny paintings that I can also use for repeating patterns. I’m fond of the two cats floating in the poppies and the Egyptian styled leaves on the lower right.

I have been working on this image for a repeat pattern and finally feel it is finished. If only I were better in Photoshop. I haven’t figured out how to drop out the background so I can make a lovely repeating pattern. I think it looks quite cute all on it’s own.
