of three new mixed media paintings
from my studio. On sanded paper.
This started out as a completely
different subject.

The spiral on the left melon
is all that is left of the original design.
I repeated the device on the other melons:
one for each bird.

I like this little guy up top. There's a bit of 23 carat gold
at his feet.

on sanded paper.
About 9 x 14 inches.

I like the shapes in the couple up top.


'Been painting
watercolors on paper
over a ground of sanded acrylic.

I also have a batch of new brushes
They're liners which hold lots of paint
and are usually employed
for pin-striping.

Here's a detail of the 9 x 12 work before completion.

I've laid in some gold and bright white markings
after this shot.

is tomorrow eve' (20th) in Key West.
I worked on an elaborate but too-tight mask
which is in the trash now.

I DID paint this t-shirt today
at the studio:

Started with the nose
and worked out from there in Liquitex.

Freehand lesson in symmetry
(enhanced to show strokes):
I got in the groove.
New brushes, too!

Sort of Hellinistic....
Don't know if I'll make it for the ride:
I've got the bike and the t-shirt
but the stamina? 
sold out of some of my giclees today...

A nice problem!

Dog Day Morning

Sent some prints off
to smiley repeat clients
which in the last two years has
rescued more than a thousand dogs
abandoned into the Florida Everglades.

I think Annie's cute;
so did her new owners!
I meet lots of dogs and their owners on
