6x6 Oil over acrylic underpainting, pig
This is my "County Collector".
I tried an acrylic under-painting with oil on top, to be sure it dried in time to be photographed for The County Studio Tour catalog. I used hi flow acrylics which were more fun (and messier) than I had expected.
I'm participating in the Studio Tour, for the first time, this September. So, save the date: 9/19 - 9/20 And stay tuned.
Many thanks to @ladyfarmerlaura for the reference photo!
12x12 Oil on panel. Brown Frame. Owl.
This is a Eurasion Eagle Owl who lives at the LA Zoo. I believe this is one of the largest species of owl, and I just love their brilliant orange eyes.
Many thanks to the amazing photographer, @erinsmother on Instagram for allowing me to use her reference photo.
6x6 encaustic paint on ampersand encausticbord, black floater frame.
This was painted using water soluble wax paint by @ceracolors.
I originally painted this one, because my mom used to collect foxes. She had fox hunting paintings, little fox figurines, foxes on china, and pillows, and she even had a plush fox stuffed animal in her living room that was so realistic, it scared my dog when he first saw it.
I once did a painting of a fox for her, in greyscale. She always wanted me to paint one in color, but i never got around to it while she was still here. :(
Hopefully this painting will go to someone who wants to give it to their mother, (who maybe also has a fabulous fox collection). I think my mom would like that.
Many thanks to @doris_the_photog for allowing me to use her amazing photo as a reference.
