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:
No more frustrated artist. I’m no longer frustrated!

Wait, what? The time, it gets away from me

This semester is killing me! I guess I am learning a lot. Here are some recent highlights:

A self-portrait, circa 2003, which was beyond my capabilities at the time, but which I did for class this year. Oil on canvas, 18″x24″:
Self Portrait with Cat
A self-portrait which is current, five years and one child later, oil on canvas 16″x20″:
Self Portrait with Art
A painting of Alex at the piano, not finished, 18″x20″:
Alex at the Piano

Portrait of Richard

From Academy reference. Oil on board, roughly 16″x20″.

Hello again.

First assignment for portrait painting class, a quick oil sketch of my husband.


Situation and Environment: Final Painting

I just turned in this painting for my final project in Situation and Environment class. As with every project this semester, I was absolutely under the gun doing it, and I know it sure as heck is not perfect. But I guess it is good enough to upload for viewing here. The model is my mother. Oil on canvas, 24″x18″.15_graysm.jpg 

A pastel

I hesitate to post this, because it is only the second pastel I’ve ever tried to do, and the first pastel was just the week before last. I was really not confident about pastels, but after this one, I feel a lot better and I am looking forward to the pastel self-portrait we will be doing as out final project. Some areas are more developed than others because I was really focused on the face. This is from Academy reference and it’s about 16″x20″.12_graysm.jpg
