Week 46 Share The Love

Are you ready to Share The Love? That's our challenge for Week 46. 

I know most artists have a collection of pieces they have purchased from other artists over the years. As creatives, we appreciate the creativity in others. This week, take some time to let those artists know why you love their piece(s) and maybe even send them of photo of it hanging in it's forever home.

The worksheet is below.

Well I guess you'd have to be pretty tall to look this guy in the eye. But don't you just want to have a conversation with this him? or her?

Don't you want to be their friend? I just loved the faces on these 3 cuties. Their fun hairdos were just perfect for my palette knife technique.

Week 45 Support Other Artists

As we continue Giving Back this month, think about supporting other artists by attending their shows, commenting on their social media posts, sharing their art, and purchasing some pieces as gifts this holiday season instead of buying off the shelf. It will mean so much to them.

Here is your free worksheet.

Bovine Friends Forever


6" x 8"

Oil with palette knife on board


I've been painting a lot of animal images lately for an upcoming holiday show. These two captured my heart when I saw the image on Unsplash-a website that posts copyright free images for others to use. I just loved their little cow bells necklaces. 

More cowbell!!

Inn with a View

View From The Chatham Bars Inn

6" x 12"

Oil with palette knives on cradled board

Here's another in my Chatham series. The Chatham Bars Inn is a beautiful place to stay while visiting Cape Cod. One of my favorite things about it is this view from the front steps. You can see the gorgeous hydrangeas along with a beautiful ocean view. Order up your favorite cocktail and have a seat in one of the rocking chairs on the deck or Adirondack chairs in the garden. Relax and enjoy the view!

A few close ups:

This is not a commission, but I just loved this dog profile so much I had to paint it. I also loved his white collar with the belt buckle. Such a nice contrast to his beautiful red coat.
