Mary, Mother of God

Mary2This is a painting I finished around Thanksgiving, for my Mom’s Christmas Cards. Today is Ash Wednesday, wishing everyone a Blessed Lenten Season.  Oil on Paper, 11 x 14″.

“If you ever feel distressed during your day, call upon our Lady, just say this simple prayer: ‘Mary, Mother of Jesus, please be a mother to me now.’ I must admit, this prayer has never failed me.”
– Blessed Mother Teresa

Been at it all week…

So a long hiatus, but I have a good excuse..err.. reason. I started to teach a couple of classes and there is nothing like that to give your skill set a workout! Since they are drawing and painting, I will post a couple of each. Here is a starter, thanks and welcome to the new followers and thanks again to my old friends 🙂

 

back to the easel

After teaching kids how to draw and paint this summer, I am back in the studio. I demo’d how to draw Spidey about 100 times! I got them started by teaching them how to draw everything from “Hockey” (she meant Hawkeye),  Rapunzel, and my favorite, the Flying Uni-Panda (this is a thing now) . I learned Snoopy had a girlfriend (!!) named Fifi and  drew her a few times. As they head back to school this week, my young artists have learned a lot and even got to use “REAL artist” materials. Here are my two finished paintings from my first week back at “my real job”.

Morning of the Third Day, oil, 10 x 20″

Webcrawler, acrylic,  12x 24″

Weekly Painting Week 97 What style do you paint?

Got busy and finished three this week, so the pressure is on for next week! Very different works. I am usually stuck when I am asked what style I paint in– I think if an artist has just one, she might consider branching out. So here are three. etch2

“Etch” 24 x 36″, acrylic, alcohol and water on canvas

rise

“Rise” 30 x 30, oil on canvas

nofate

“No fate but what we make” 18 x 24″ oil on canvas

Weekly Painting Week 95 She Gives Me Trouble…

She really does. My goal was to paint a simple scene and this girl is messing with my chi! I will keep on working this one…as I have time and patience. trouble
