    Here’s how my little Alien Sock Thief Bandit (thanks to my hubby for the title change!) turned out. You know, the more I look at him the more I laugh! I hope he gives you a chuckle, too. :)

    (psst…he’s still available to buy! I may list him on ebay. Mayyyybe.)

    Here are the final scans of “The Boy” (Cole) and my Grandma. I am planning on creating a monochromatic gallery with the new layout, and will be painting more of these in this loose and “less photorealistic” style. I have a few more pieces in mind already, and will pursue those after the holidays and template changeover.

    Well here they are, the sweestest Bernese in town! Barney & Bailey were varnished and carefully packed this morning, along with the other Bailey, and they are now on their way to their homes!

    I do have something up my sleeve today, but it’s Christmassy so I’m not tellin’. ;) I also have the best blogskinner on the WWW, who is going to fix me up here with new digs by Christmas! You’re gonna love the transformation!

    Now what are you doing here? Go shopping!!

    PSST….I’m turning my webcam on to paint something very special if you want to watch!!

    Good morning! :D

    I’m going to work on the new blog today, try to get my archives moved over and stuff. I’ll paint tonight, after the girls go to bed. So if you wanna watch, plan on about 8:30PM CST! I’ll be back around then and update when I begin.

    Have a great afternoon!!

    P.S. After my commissions are finished, I’ll be painting (quite) a few new pieces! I’d like to paint another Red Tailed Hawk – I have a few more reference photos that I took that are amazing. I’ll also work on a series of smaller rose paintings, 6×6 or 8×8 size on gallery wrapped canvas. If you’re looking for something in particular, let me know!

    I know you guys have been waiting for these! “J”, if you want the big versions just let me know, and I will drop them in e-mail to you!

    I have been BUSY this morning! Got up (earrrrly), treadmilled, varnished WB&F, did dishes & cleaned the kitchen, did laundry, started uncluttering the house, paid bills, painted the background on Bailey (which I will post in a little while), scanned WB&F, pieced the scans together and now here I am!!! I still have more to do!! I’ll be back in a bit. Enjoy!

    Here’s Annie’s scan! It is reeeealy hard to pick up the vibrancy of French Ultramarine on a flatbed! But still, she’s a beaut!

    Her pic:

    I had planned on shipping evvvverything today, but a couple of them still need some drying time. I’ll work on getting the others on their way this morning!

    Painting on Cam & Other Stuff

    2004

    Good morning!

    It’s just past 8am, the webcam is on and I will be painting shortly!

    I had a couple of other things I keep forgetting to tell you about, too.

    First, I uploaded a new page to my website, 2004 : At a glance

    The fall months make it increasingly difficult to keep things updated in my galleries. I thought having that whole grouping of paintings all in one place would show browsers all of my paintings just from this year, especially since some of them aren’t even in their appropriate spots yet! After the holidays I will go through and revamp some of my galleries so they make even more sense. :)

    The other thing, remember Monday (I think?) when I said I was starting my program again? Well ta-da! I’ve been treadmilling and drinking 64 oz. of water a day, and I’m already down 5.5 lbs. See how cool that works? It won’t be long before I’m at my final goal.

    Ooh yea, my holiday commission schedule is fully booked now, so if you’re wanting a custom pet portrait as a gift I will still honor my sale price until the 15th but replace the actual painting with a Gift Certificate instead. Sound ok to you?

    Painting early today, I’m going to try to finish up these kitties today before my afternoon appointment. Have a great day!!
