6 x 6 inches, oil on panel
This is inspired by a DPW challenge to do an image incorporating polka dots. I have a few other paintings in the works that I have been stuck on lately so it was nice to put them aside and try this one. My favorite part is the bright red above the shadow of the shell. My kids wanted to title it 'Mutant Snail' because the shell is unusually large in comparison to the ones we often find around our house.

For Mother's Day my request was to get to play in some clay out in the backyard with my boys. It couldn't of been a prettier day. This is what we made:
|bird head painted with yellow and white slip|
|longhorn red clay, leather hard stage, 6" tall|
|frankenstein head painted with green slip|
Happy Mother's Day!

watercolor and graphite
This is from a 20 minute pose at a life drawing session I attended today. I haven't posted a sketchbook portrait in awhile as I had taken a break from doing them---I think I was getting tired of looking at a photo for reference. Having a live model is much better.
