Because Art Should be Play and Not Work

Something besides face sketches

Besides 29 Faces, I did some paintings over the summer and this fall. This one is called "In the Garden".


I haven't named this one yet, but I think this woman is a curandera and this bird is a magical creature that she converses with in the moonlight. What's your story?


I love this woman holding a chicken. Is she taking it to the marketplace or is she taking it home from the marketplace or is it just her pet chicken that she likes to carry with her?


 All three of these paintings are "found" paintings--I just paint backgrounds with lots of pattern and design  and then look at them to see what image begins to emerge. I love this kind of painting--so many happy "accidents".

These are stunning. Truly. Did you use any collage materials or stamps, or are all those tiny details hand painted? Each one is equally beautiful.

I do love the lady with the chicken-of course! But all three are favorites for me!

These are amazing! Love the bright colours and all the different patterns. And I agree with you: this kind of painting is the most fun to do!

Happy creating....
