All dogs go to heaven #12


watercolor on paper 4 by 6 inches $40.00  This is part of a series….

I paint this trio often and as I paint them I think of things that the dogs are saying to each  other  like… “Do you think we should tell him he’s adopted?”

Feb Koi ACEO Mixed media on gessoed masonite ( wood)











2.5 by 3.5 ACEO on gessoed masonite. varnished in matte varnish with uvl .  $15.00 plus 2.5 for postage

I love working with gessoed masonite.  I have the option of painting in watercolor, pastels, oil or acrylics. its a great surface.  I make these myself. I have them cut by my handyman who will cut up a dozen at a time.  I also ask him to cut some 8 by 10 sizes because that seems to be the most popular size for daily paintings

Collage Journal #2


Not for sale but I would be happy to tell you how you could make your own.

This is the cover to a journal.
I made this today in preparation for a collage demo I’m giving on Tuesday. It has papers I created with tissue paper and acrylic paint. In the center there is a watercolor paper insert which I painted in WC but used a transfer from my sketch book. I also used wallpaper, around the edge I think they call it grass cloth plus various tapes and screens for texture.
If I cover it in UV varnish it should last many lifetimes.
Oh yeah… I forgot to mention…
I covered the whole thing in “Golden” Soft Gel Gloss.
The actual journal was a “composition book” you find in any drug store or school supply for $1.00. It has lined paper inside which is nice for notes, recipes, journaling and even some creative writing.

I’ve really enjoyed the lake this winter. Today the ducks were acting as if it were spring and they made funny duck noises as they floated, almost drifted by us ( us as in Me and the Labs)

This little 3 .5 by 2.5 card is painted in watercolor on paper. Its a collectable card and its only $15.00 plus 1.5 postage in USA.

I wish it was in focus, I will try to get a better photo tomorrow. These little paintings can be a great way to work on your design skills. They are so small you learn to fill the space without putting too many things in the painting. You think about shapes a bit more and it seems to help you if like me, you tend to put lots of stuff in every square inch of your canvas or paper.
