Snuggle Bum (Finny, French Bulldog Painting)

This was part of a Facebook Challenge. 


Finny is such a cuddler, if we are not available for snuggles he will use the couch pillows, which is how I caught him here.   And his butt really looks like that.  Hence the name for this painting.

6"x8" mixed media on cradled wood board, I started with acrylic and finished with oil.

Oozingly Mine (PB&J #33 - Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich Painting)



 6"X6" ACRYLIC ON 7/8" cradled wood board
Yes, I did eat this PB&J!  Truth be told, I didn't want to waste this much oozilage, so I took a quick photo and shoved it in my mouth before the shutter finished clicking.  Okay, it was actually my Iphone and it doesn't make any noise but I took a bite fast.

Nope, not painted from life.  We all know that I am not a hyper-realism painter.  Believe me, if I could be I would be!  But I they're just fun and people seem to like them as much as I do.  Besides, who can resist a fresh PB&J with this much PBJ ooozzing??

Chili Peppers


http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=281819229022

I love my new Montana paints!  The orangey-red in this painting is called "Chili Pepper", so hmmm, that's a good name.   :D

This is three 16x20s=48"x20".  I have been selling many abstracts on ebay, on the advice of an artist friend I did not put them under sunnyavocado name, I was told that I have too many different subjects and styles going on.  Well. I guess that's just my personality.  I like to experiment.

So, I decided to put this one here and any others that make the cut.  You can find detail photos and see the auction, here:

Ice Crystals & Mesmerized

So even though I am only posting once a month, I am actually still painting almost daily!  I have been doing a lot of testing, experimenting and overall a lot of fun-having while my husband encourages me.  I have now taken up the office space, the dining room, the garage/shop, the outbuilding down by the water and the   corner of the bedroom...Oy. 
So here are a couple of things I worked on.  This is an 18x24":
"Ice Crystals" because that's what it reminds me of.  Blues, Pure White, Silver.  Oh yeah.

Resin, how do I love thee...

Hey!  I am still here!  I've been doing lots of R&D.  :D

I mean playing around with materials.  (and having a great time!)  Resin is my new love, and I have returned to my first love-abstract.  And Voila!  My first 2 hybrids that passed:


These photos have a CRAZY amount of shine, as resin is like a glass coating.  I thought I did take photos of the abstracts before the resin, but they were not finished bcuz I kept playing with them and THEN forgot to take new pics.  So...you'll have to trust me and the quality of my work rather than these photos.  ;)  I am so very happy with these!!

There was a lot of texture from the paint and mediums, then the resin, so there is a 'relief' to these that I really like.  Here are a few close ups:
