Goofing with hand lettering


Back to the drawing and painting workspace.  Now that the major remodel has been done on my sweet little village house, and, now that I’m recovering from exhaustion, it is time to goof around and play a little.  I have an idea in my head for another series to be done simultaneously with the almost extinct animals of Mexico.  It’s about painting what you want to paint.  So this is a note to begin.  I will use a digital font for the art but this is just to break the ice and sit at this wonderful table.
I have lots of light here and room to spread out so it’s nothing but fun.  My internet is extremely poor and slow, but I’m hanging in there for a better day.  I have a hundred ideas for this “paint what you love” series.  If you have a suggestion for what you think I should love to paint, feel free and jump in.






daily paintings

green apple still life


Here is a Pippin green apple on an old dish cloth.  This is a miniature watercolor where I find myself going back in time and painting quick vignettes of little household things.

As I recover from surgery and the adjustment to living in Mexico, I need to go back and establish my roots and where I’ve come from.  I have been a daily painter for many years and it gives me comfort.

Check out all the new paintings I’ve done in the past few weeks here.  Ive been playing with abstracts and using vivid colors.  Thanks for looking.
