Dance in the Rain

I don't usually paint people, but I was inspired lately to give it a go and try something new :)

As I was painting the dress, I thought it kind of looked like feathers...made me think of a Phoenix, all fiery red, orange, pink and gold. Perhaps this woman is learning to dance in the rain, and begin her life anew...

Looks like she's starting with tossing aside that umbrella...who needs one anyway, right? ;)

 This painting was inspired by a big lightning storm we had here last year ... :)

Let's go...

A fun little white sailboat sailing into the sunset...
I love the deep blues and oranges together here...so vibrant, yet peaceful at the same time. :)
I painted the stars with an iridescent medium so that they kind of appear and disappear depending on the lighting.

Spring Rain


Spring Rain


A very springy tree with white flowers on a deep blue background.
I painted the background with metallic silver first, then a lovely deep blue on top of the silver. I used plastic forks to take some of the blue paint off to make the different circles for the rain splashing in puddles on the ground. The silver under the blue paint gives this painting a really cool glow when seen in person (unfortunately, it is hard to see this effect in pictures). :)


Soulful Eyes

I love elephants, and I have wanted to feature one in a painting for a looooong time... I finally got around to it and here it is!!! I like this painting so much that for the time being I am keeping it for myself, lol. Sorry :)
