Oh those gorgeous blues! This is a tiny commission from this past weekend. On the first weekend of the Rehoboth show a family bought three small originals with the intention of getting one frame and switching out the painting throughout the year. Then they came back the following weekend for three more. What a great idea. Maybe they need 12? One for each month. Which reminds me, I wanted some input from you for my 2020 calendar. I’ll be sending out an email later today about that. So if you are on my email list I’d love your input, and if you’re not, what are you waiting for? The link is in my bio to sign up! Hope your day is a great one! #carveouttimeforart#originalart#blueberries

'Zappzumazas' as my youngest calls them! After a couple of weeks out of the studio thought I would set myself a time limit for these satsumas. The girls have got a film on, drinks and snacks!
The In Crowd. 8x8in acrylic on canvas panel. Produce from my garden usually gets painted before eating. And if you saw my stories yesterday you know I broke this plate and glued it back together. Painting is the best photoshop.

Toi Storee. 8x8in acrylic on canvas panel. I’ve been fighting the voices in my head saying. “This will never sell,” “the people won’t like this.” And just painting what I want. And yesterday I wanted weird and fun. Available in my online gallery at dailypaintworks.com.
Did some painting yesterday and I’m so thrilled with these two abstract acrylics! They’re soooo colorful and saturated and perfectly bright and cheery! These are the first two acrylic paintings I’m releasing for sale!
They’re both 9”x12” on acrylic paper and are available for $95 each with free shipping to the US. The one on the left is “Carousel” and the one on the right is “Wonder”. (Outside the US, you pay shipping less a $10 discount.) DM me to purchase, first come, first served.
I’ll pop in to my Stories with these today, to give you a closer look! Happy Tuesday, friends!!

Dragonfly abstract. During the summer in the field where I walk, there are bright blue dragonflies, and their wings look like silver streaks in the sun.

Trying to decide if I should add another layer of paper. I was really loving the paper with the circle grid, but it just disappeared on the watercolor paper once I glued it. At that I was going to get a really neat pattern from that. You can see that down larger circles worked out fine. Those circles are literally made with pieces of yarn it seems or just paper yarn. I did get good textures out of the thick fiber paper. The next picture shows scraps of the papers I used.

This is the 2nd painting I've done from a photo I took in Quebec City. I feel like I've improved some elements but the perspective of the windows is "off", of course. I should have spent more time with the pencil sketch before jumping into the paint. Something I'll try to do next time! #watercolor#artistofinstagram#dailysketch#dailypainting#quebeccity

#thirtyhorsesthirtydays with a twist in September! It’s actually going to be #thirtypaintingsinthirtydays though still all animals. If you haven’t been following along on Facebook, but would like to share your companion animal (including horses) sign up using the link in my bio! 🐎
Quick and simple... this painting came together pretty easily for me, without too many edits or revisions. I use watercolor and acrylic paint to make these, including watercolor pencils. I actually have to replenish my watercolor pencil stash when I drive into town later.
I found this image on @lifeunstyled 's page, but she said it wasn't her home, it was from a photo shoot for her book "Modern Rustic." I'd love to look through her books sometime!
I've been making paintings of the spaces where people live for the past ten years. I've found inspiration in vintage home remodeling magazines, in the IKEA catalog, photos I've taken of my friends homes, trolling Craigslist for sublet rentals all over the United States, and most recently through Instagram.

Ok, everyone needs to have a cliché painting of Tuscany, and this one is mine 😀 Swipe left for the source pic, which I clicked on the train from Pisa to Cannes. While I enjoyed painting it, I did miss my lemon yellow and cobalt violet which I had forgotten to pack with me. It turned out alright though, so no complaints!
