Almost done with the rework of “Reborn”. Decided to go edgy.
Rework of old Geisha. I have to rework the face because I accidentally smudged it 🙄 #figurativeart #geisha #kimono #art #workinprogress #painting #modernart #contemporaryart #california #americanartist

Good days work.
It’s my birthday🤪 my husband fixed up my Koi pond and were going Koi shopping since my koi died with the pump malfunction. He bought a better pump, made me a little waterfall, added some succulents.
Very quick sketch on # 2. I ran out of black so my mom is running to get me some😘. Probably can’t see it (but I can) it’s a ballerina laying down legs stretched out, from neck down.
Going thru some emotions right now. Just saw pictures of the house I grew up in burned to the ground in the Carr fire, so I decided to re work an old one. Retitled it “Praying” 36x40
cleaned up get legs point shoes and background. Added in flective lines the. Some sheer paint for dimension. I always line up my painting with the grooves of the wood floor when doing lines. It’s so easy to go crooked on accident. I used my smudger for the lines and highlights on her legs with quick flicks of my wrist.
I’m doing final work on muscle definition and her tutu. Point shoes are done. About to start a second piece of my figurative exhibition series. I will have prints available.

In attempting to occupy my mind while The Carr fire rips thru my hometown. I painted and made a cheesecake for my oldest 18th Bday.
found solid video that my childhood home has burned.
Please pray for the residents of Old Shasta. This is where I grew up. My father who I haven’t seen in twenty plus years still lives there in the House I grew up.
tutu layout, lining the point shoes, and starting her legs
quick 5 minute sketch on the start of my figure series. Focusing on dancers in motion and capturing the raw strength of their bodies that I truly admire.
The surprise painting I did of my niece for her graduation present. I posted a lot of pics because it’s hard to see in photos the metallic gold I used. Incredible dimension in person, catches the light beautifully
finished 60x48 Koi pond/ work in progress Geometric
