Noah's Finished!

I finally finished the Noah double portrait, "Noah always does what he's supposed to." That was taken directly from his kindergarten report card. The other possible phrase was "Noah's very quiet."
We've had out-of-town guests we were entertaining, which included cleaning the whole place, but I hope to get back to painting now. Today I also took another reference portrait photograph, so I have another painting I want to start soon. I still have to varnish this, paint the edges and sign it.

Helen's Rage

Here's another art card I just completed. I'm having fun, but I also painted edges of paintings, and boring things like that today.

Art Cards!

My boyfriend, Matt, has been selling hand-painted bird magnets on and has been telling me to put some stuff on the "all hand-made" arty website. Since I've been doing collage items in my free time just for fun (calendars, cards, etc.), I thought it would be another creative outlet for me. I love oil painting, but sometimes you just want to go back to kindergarten and cut and paste. So far this is the only item in my store (franticmeerkat), but I want to do a couple of pieces a week.
