The Beekeeper's Daughter; graphite and oil on board

After many years I have picked up my oils and completed a new painting. I can't remember the last time I painted in something other than acrylics or gouache so this has been a big experiment.

Dream big, little one ~ Custom skate deck art

This one was a big nerve-wracking to make, it was a gift for my niece's first birthday. Firstly, we were ordered to not bring gifts (lol! like I'm going to promise that) so we decided on something that cost nothing but time and would be super special and grow with her.

So my husband and I joined forces and planned a bird and dreamcatcher design with the words "Dream Big". This is a standard full-sized wooden skate deck, painted, inked and drawn with a variety of different mediums.

Another addition to the miniature canvas menagerie

Another abstract background chosen and this time, a bright green frog popped up! I adore frogs, they are so bright and beautiful and have such amazing physical prowess. Did you know that along with breathing through lungs, they also breathe through their skin to regulate moisture and fluid transfer in a process called cutaneous gas exchange? NICE!

A new miniature painting - little Broadbill

Getting the paints out was very therapeutic! I painted a bunch of abstract backgrounds on some 10x10cm canvas boards and picked one for this little guy.

The circus is in town!

I just put the finishing touches on these three beauties. The Lion Tamer and The Fire Breather are extra special to me as two of my very close friends posed for these ones for me :)
