Moving and starting over

For ages I have had my work and my blog scattered all over the web and it became increasingly difficult to keep up with it all. I now have one site where my galleries and my blog will be living:

Tomatoes in a window

This is a finished painting based on one of the trillions of quick studies I have been doing this semester. 24″x18″, oil on panel.

Quick Study #4

10×8″ oil on panel of our deceased, and greatly missed old greyhound, Blur’s Teeberry (aka “Sparky”), who died in the spring of 2005. I spent 30 minutes on this one.

Quick Study #3

Another quick study I like. This one will most likely be developed into a finished painting for midterm. 8×10″ (or thereabouts) on panel, oil.

Quick Study #2

This is from my own reference and the theme is “anything to do with water.” This is clouds reflecting in tidal pools and I completed it in 25 minutes. Oil on panel.

Quick Study #1

So, I am in this “Quick Studies” class where we have a timer, and we have to complete a study in the allotted amount of time. There’s no time for farting around with precise drawing and all that. I did about six of the things, three 20-minute studies and three 40-minute studies. I do hope I improve over the course of the semester, but this is the best of the first batch. 40 minutes, oil on panel.

I figure painting I actually like

This is one of the weekly 6-hour paintings we have been doing all semester. I have liked very little of what I have produced, up until the last few weeks when we have been required to place our figure in an environment. Gee, I should have just been doing that all along, because my figures have improved since she started having us do that. This is oil on canvasboard, about 14″ tall.
