what is the mutiple of shrimp. shrimps. no.

Entice with Spice (SOLD)

I was reading somewhere  that the age of the blog is giving way to facebook and twitter. I don't know for sure if that is true statement.  What is a true statement is that I was a more convincing liar before Facebook. Practicing the craft of deception and keeping up a perky facebook  status among "friends" requires maintaince to stay relevant. Honesty is the best policy, unless, of course, you are an exceptional liar.
This is a still life of seafood condiments.

Waiting for the Madgi (SOLD)

This painting is a work in progress that is quickly turning into work. The more I do to it the more work it seems to need, just like me, sitting here...waiting for the madgi.
I have done more work on this and now it appears a bit flat. I will probably keep adding more color to it soon.

The New Dress (SOLD)

This is one of those paintings that I struggled with. I sketched it out and I liked it. I painted on it more and then I didn't like it. I set it aside and came back to it again. I worked on it more and eventually this is what it looked like. I like it.
Thanks for looking. I'm not kiddin'.

Cupcake Compulsion (SOLD)

This is a larger piece on stretched canvas. It feels challenging to paint on a larger work and not have it become overworked.  My cupcake models are rock hard. literally. I believe they have a shelf  life all their own.

The Lady Ann (SOLD)

Five years ago I was beginning to be....."all about learning this craft of painting". 
Most of the time, during all those brief and fleeting days, I tried being vigilant and conscientious in my efforts to improve those skills . On the days, I could not "hit for shit", or (paint my masterpiece), I often wondered what it was that I had forgotten.  I look back at some of those early works "of which I was all so proud at the time" and I can cringe.
and I look at my early "homeruns"
and now I sigh,.....How could it be any other way?
Oil on panel 11"X14"
I am declaring this to be officially my 1200th painting.
