“Joe’s Roses Delight Your Noses”. 10″x8″, watercolor work-in-progress on cotton paper.

I gotta be honest. In the middle of this work, I was hating what I’d done with Joe here. His eyes were too small and his head too blocky. I was deliberating whether to toss him out and start over. But I buckled down and gave him another shot. I was able to wipe all the black off around his eyes, and make them bigger. And after finishing the roses, and getting some more fur in, I was happy with where he was going. I soldiered on and got him done! Now I love him.

“Bunny Willow” Rebooted. I thought I was done with this painting in April, but this week I decided I was wrong about that. NOW it’s done. I added texture and pattern throughout with paint pen today. 

6″x6″, mixed media on paper, mounted on wood panel. Work in progress photos below.
