o.k. really? is this one going to be a print I can buy? I love it...I've had an obsession with painting/watercoloring deers and "antlers" lately...

o.k....did I miss the amazing seattle rock n' roll marathon recap somewhere?! I feel like I'm lurkin' on the refresh button :) dying to hear how it all panned out and your speedster finish!

Glad your finding some time to blog and paint. xo

LOVE this.

Paul said it is a bird caught in the headlights.
get it?
har har.



I think the other little bird is trying to figure out if he is possibly related to a pretty funny freak of nature! Colorful and fun! (sorta like you!)


I love its attitude :)


It's a bird before a giant gecko grabs it from behind.

Perhaps a bird in front of a tree?

God speed on all the "boring" stuff. I always come home from work itching to paint or draw or sew and there always seems to be all this mundane stuff that needs attention RIGHT NOW.

I love your Rain-bird-deer. I hope you get back to it soon. We can't wait to see her (him?) in full glory.


I am IN LOVE with this painting. So could work that look myself most days. lol


Why of course it´s a snow-owl tuning it´s social antennas! Your paintings are so great!

I love your bird/deer guy! (Girl? Thing?) I'm really enjoying all the canvases you've been showing lately. The "Riding on Wisdom" owl is lovely too. :)

It's like a drug-induced hallucination of a mosquito looking in the mirror...whatever it is, it's AMAZING! You must do prints!
