Commissioned to Recreate the Sun & Wind Painting on a Smaller Scale

Painting Turtles for a Fun and Challenging Creative Session

Finally painting for ME. Divine mother goddess painting!

My birthday is 12/12/84 at 12:12pm, and so I’ve always felt connected to the number 12. Another special connection is sharing that birthday (12/12) with my great-grandmother Agueda Johnston, who was a well-known woman here on Guam. While I have never really been much of a religious person, I do have a strong sense of …

The Biggest Latte Stone I’ve Ever Painted!

So I was up late one night (I think it was new year’s day? or the 2nd?) and decided to just go ahead and paint the giant canvas sitting in my room. Over the course of several hours, the biggest latte stone I’ve ever painted emerged. I have been loving using the crosshatch style of …

Behind the Scenes of the Dramatic Cat Commission

The final piece of a recent commission collection is finished! A dramatic cat painting, done in a non-abstract style for once. Black, white and green are the palette and an alert kitty gives the staredown of both curiosity and readiness. Decided to sketch it first to try to get the proportions to look okay.  This was …
