Can you see it?  A very special portrait is on the easel next. My youngest has a thing for naps and blankets. The blankie that will be in this painting was affectionately named "deet deet". He took it with him everywhere and wash day was the thing alligator tears were made of. Today he's not so little and Deet Deet is packed away a thing of the not so distant past. This scene was from those years full of snuggles long past time to paint it.   Here I am finding the feature landmarks of the…

Oh my its been so long since I painted #Alaska. Feels good to get those blues and greens on the brush again. The last few days have been hectic in the studio with half an hour painting time sprinkled in here and there. But some progress is better than none!  Looking forward to some loong days ahead of flinging paint. Hope you have an awesome weekend! #oilpainting #gamblincolors #mendenhallglacier #juneau #glacier #fireweed #mountains #landscapepainting #scenery #newartwork #originalart…

I have to stop painting to make dinner but I really don't want to! These colors just beg me to play.   Ahh well... until later my lovely. 8x16" in progress. You can see other progress pics in my feed.  #palmtrees #oilpainting #originalart #newartwork #sunriseart #sunset #tropicalart #clouds #artcollecting #artgalleries #sunrise #color #pnwartist #hawaiiart

Today I'm feeling a little more sunshiney... is that a word? Palm trees and sunrise on the easel. Love using these bright happy colors.  8x16" oil on wood panel in progress #originalart #oilpainting #artgallery #fineart #gamblincolors #rosemarybrushes #parallelpalette #sunset #sunriseart #artcollector #uplifting #happycolor #art #create #makeart #ontheeasel #artgalleries #hawaiiart #pnwartist

A dreamy Hawaiian landscape is on the easel today.  These rich deep colors are so calming for me. #Alexa's playing @JackJohnson while I paint. Those sweet tunes plus the tropical vibes make for a total Zen studio environment.  Paint on!

This morning I gave a little livestream painting demo for my patrons on @Patreon. They are beta testing a partnership with @crowdcast. Really promising!  During the live demo I discussed #archesoilpaper and different ways to paint on it transparent paint vs. Opaque and why the difference is important how to decide what parts of the painting to blend and which ones to leave crisp why the radiant color line from #gamblincolors is so awesome etc. Etc.  And look! We even came out of it with a…

Leeeetle chicken.  This teensy chick wanted some attention too.  Measuring 5x7" this painting in progress is approx. life size. After watching so many hens mother their flocks I love to watch how the extra adventurous littles react to the new world. They venture out farther test limits and then always get busted by mom for wandering. Maybe this one is contemplating it's next great escape.  Mug for scale. Next pic will be the completed painting.  #originalart #artcollector #fineart #instaart…
