Click to bid
Description: Sometimes when doing a large, complicated painting I need to make small studies of its various components. Here I have familiarized myself with the beautiful colors and markings of a discus fish. Tricky critters to paint!

Title: Blue Lion
Size: 11x14 inches
I wanted to portray a sense of magic and majesty in this portrait of a lion. There are subtle bits of other colors besides blue-- some bits of pink, gold, neutral grays, and deep purple. Acrylic on stretched canvas. Photo credit: Russ Bridges.

Title: Blue Buddies
Size: 8x8 inches
I love monsters and Halloween is approaching. I also love pen and ink, but this isn't pen and ink. It's acrylic on canvas. BTW the tiny Bird is really the more powerful of the two, because he's the Monster's subconscious.

Title: "Sympathy and Grace"
Medium: Acrylic on canvas
Genre: Figurative, Magic Realism
Size: 14x11 inches
The figure was from a live session at AVAA in Austin, Texas. I added in the roses to give her something to think about, and also to enter the Daily Paintworks challenge. Pink roses symbolize sympathy and grace, which go nicely with her thoughtful expression. After the roses, a frog showed up, then a butterfly, then a key. Keys have gotten awfully popular of late, but I've decided to keep doing them anyway.
