I May Be Mad!

Just listed in my Etsy shop... This painting recently hung in the Marco Fuoco Gallery in Sacramento. Sorry for the bad photo - I'll blame it on my old camera and probably too many cups of coffee.

The Marco Fuoco Gallery is having a 30/30 show and it may be madness but I'm in. 30 artist, 30 paintings in 30 days! It's going to be a challenge. All paintings are to be 6 x 6 and will sell between $50 to $300. The 20th Street Gallery is having a simular show called 50/50 - it's the same, 50 artists, 50 paintings, 50 days. Maybe next year. 50 seems to overwhelming at the moment.

A big shout out & thank you goes out to Amber Sky for featuring my Lady in Red Hat & Roses in her beautiful Treasury on Etsy.com. Check out her beautiful jewelry!

I was asked why my angel's eyes don't match. Well... I do that on purpose. Eyes are the windows to the soul, they give us character and they don't match. By exaggerating that I think it gives them a spirit & sense that they are thinking something. From one side to the other each angel appears to have to sides, 2 expressions. I don't draw them out before I start painting. They come to life on their own. Also by exaggerating the eyes I create a bit of a "fun house" effect as well. I like it even though it's a tad creepy. Their eyes follow you. Stand up, look into her eyes and walk to one side of your screen to the other, or just move from one side to the other......SEE! (sorry that was a bad pun haha)

ACEOs just listed on Ebay... All 3 angels are featured on one of the bookmarks in the sets for sale in my Etsy shop. These angels feel a little nostalgic to me with their pretty hair bobs.

They are lovely, and their eyes are following me.

I like your paintings! I like how you use one predominant color on their faces. Cool!
