Sleepy Kitty

Tomato II, 8″x 8″, oil on canvas

Belated birthday present for my nephew…this is his cat Tomato. šŸ™‚ Last year I painted a different version of Tomato for his sister.

6 Bridges Gallery

“Living Room”, 11″ x 16″

Excited that my painting “Living Room” was selected to be part of the latest juried show at 6 Bridges Gallery in Maynard, MA with other local artists. The show is called “Habitat” and will be up until February 6th!

Selfie in Santa Fe

12″ x 16″, oil on canvas

First portrait / self-portrait… It took 7 (!) sessions to get to this, and they were all really terrifying versions! I wasn’t sure I could get to something decent, so I am really happy with this.

Tomato the Cat

8″ x 8″, oil on canvas

It’s my niece’s 9th birthday tomorrow šŸ’• so IĀ  made her a petite portrait of her cat Tomato

Hiro at Salisbury Beach

12″ x 16″, oil on canvas

I liked the sketch I made of my pup so decided to make the painting. This was from a photo taken at Salisbury Beach. I used a limited palette with only 5 colors: burnt umber, French ultramarine, cadmium red, cadmium yellow, and titanium white.

Still Life with Bust

16″ x 20″, oil on canvas

I think I’m going to start painting on bigger canvases for certain subjects.Ā  It was a bit of torture painting all these objects on a 16″ x 20″ canvas …felt like I was painting in miniature.

Painting

12″ x 16″, oil on canvas

Recreated an old sketch of a hand drawing but this time in paint and of a hand painting. It was my first time making skin tones with paint…challenging but fun.

Cherries

12″ x 12″, oil on canvas

Believe it or not, it was the ramekin that was most difficult to paint. The cherries and tablecloth were a lot easier and much more fun.

Skull and Roses

12″ x 16″, oil on canvas

I love Mexican art with skulls and paintings with a “memento mori” theme, so I bought myself a replica skull (and some silk roses) from Etsy to paint. This was done faster than usual for me…I think I’m finally figuring out how to paint flowers.

Living Room

16″ x 20″, oil on canvas

Spending more time at home, so I figured I may as well paint it. I loved making all the tiny things, especially the little paintings.
