My Featured Pick of the Day!

So here’s a gallery of one of my most talked about & viewed pieces…and one in which I tried things I’d never done before, had a lot of fun experimenting, and discovered I was actually fairly good with painting underwater life. Which is odd, since I find the aquatic world beautiful but full of terrible things with teeth that might eat me. Maybe this is how I purge that fear. Yes! Order more of these, help me work on my unreasonable fear of chompy things in the ocean!

This chair was designed for a particular little boy, the son of a friend of mine…and his exuberant, adventurous, irrepressible personality definitely inspired me throughout the painting of it.

I have to say, painting the coral reefs was possibly the most joyous painting experience I’ve ever had. Never having done subjects like that before, I had no idea how it was going to go–it could have been a disaster! It wasn’t…it almost painted itself. Maybe I was in the zone. It was one of the rare times that what was in my head almost instantly matched what was flowing out of my brush–no, better: because each creature or rock or finger of coral I painted inspired new ideas and changed–improved–what was in my head. Really cool synergy. I really want to paint one of these again.

Be sure to check me out at my Etsy shop!
