Vacation = More Painting!

I work in a school and that leaves me little time to paint, so I've taken full advantage of my three days off. I finished a commission and worked on several others...

Jody's Commission is done!

These two are from my photo contest. I couldn't resist painting both of these!

I also joined a gym today and about passed out from my free initial personal trainer consultation. Being an artist does not go well with staying in shape!

I was featured in a blog...

Thank you Celine for featuring me in your wonderful siamese cat blog

I'm sorry I haven't been around too much - this recession has made my work crazy. I'm a social worker in a school and it keeps me busy to say the least! I love my work, but I love my art too, so I'll be posting new things soon. I have finished several paintings and had a show, and all my work was very well received. Here are two more of the paintings I finished for the show...

The originals will be available exclusively on, when I get around to having time to put them on there : ) Can anyone relate??
