What I've been Working On

The umbrella painting I started 4 or 5 years ago and it needs a lot of work.  At least I think it does.  The one below just sort of created itself under my paintbrush all in an hour.  Whereas I think it's pleasing, I don't know if it's the sort of thing people would pay money for.  Well, I'm not done with it anyway.

I'm surprising myself by feeling quite vulnerable posting these paintings on the web.  I guess I mostly show my art to family and people who are 'on my side' so to say and I'm not used to criticism...But that being said, the people who read this blog are pretty much on my side already, right?  RIGHT??!

My ego is bursting to explain that while I could always paint something more 'realistic', this sketchy style is what I love to paint.

Also I have cheap brushes and cheap paint.

Ok that's enough.  Let me know what you think!


  1. I think they're both great! I don't see them with a critical eye at all. Who am I to criticize your creations?

  2. I love and understand your style - your amazing!

  3. i've always loved that first one and let's be honest here--everything you do but that's just because you are awesome.

  4. I like it and the style. Art doesn't have to be realistic. I like the feeling that is conveyed in the sketchiness of it and I definitely think someone would buy it. And you deserve some good brushes!

  5. I would buy them I love them all!! Please sell me a couple of pieces....... <3
