Tis the Season

Oil on panel, 5"x6"

I've been a bit remiss in my blog posting, but have been busy at work in the studio. Life in general is busy too... we have a new rescue puppy named Lily (she's awesome!), and with two kids life seems constantly in motion. In the studio I've been working slowly on some paintings on panel.
Besides the slowly-developing works on panel, I also wanted to make some small scale and affordable art for the holiday season. That's right! A Studio Sale! I'm creating a series of small work, some on un-stretched canvas that will be matted, ready for framing. Prices will be in the $50-$100 range.

Some pieces are drying, and I'll post them right after the Thanksgiving holiday. In the meantime, I'm going to jump start the Studio Sale with a small work on panel. This painting is of a hawk, flying low over the trees. Hawks fascinate me. On one hand they're gorgeous and it's always a little thrill to see them. On the other hand they are big enough to carry away any one of my chickens, so I really don't want to see them around my yard.
A small hint of paintings to come: birds, bees, salt marshes and chickens.

Also, please take a moment to look through my available paintings. You just might see the perfect painting to give as a gift or keep for yourself....
