Smoky Bun (Warm Fuzzy #74)

 

Warm Fuzzy #74 - "Smoky Bun" (pastel, 12x6 inches)

This standing bunny was the star of my Virtual Open Studio on Tuesday this week. I had just got my second Covid vaccine and was feeling a bit slow, so instead of working on one of my overdue commissions I took it easy and had my VOS attendees pick which warm fuzzy underpainting to pastel! 

I just finished a GIF of Smoky Bun's entire painting process... see it here!

"Smoky Bun" (pastel, 12x6 inches) will be at the Carriage House Gallery this Saturday for the Boerne Art Waddle. I might make an online buy link if he doesn't sell there.

Fuzzy Jenny (Warm Fuzzy #73)

 

Warm Fuzzy #73 - "Fuzzy Jenny" (pastel, 12x6 inches) buy here

I painted this adorable baby donkey a few years ago ("Fuzz") but thought she deserved another go!  

This time she was my subject for a demo for the Arizona Pastel Artists Association. They have the zoom video link on their website; check this page under Pastel Demonstrations and Presentations. I hadn't quite finished the demo at the time, so I finished at one of my Virtual Open Studio days, and will be sending that video to the APAA. They might put it up on their site too!

I just love my job, painting cute fuzzy animals! 😁

Easter Bunny (Warm Fuzzy #72)

 

Warm Fuzzy #72 - "Easter Bunny" (pastel, 8x6 inches) available unframed for a limited time

The star of my April Paint-Along! I had painted this bunny a few years ago (Bunnyboo) She was always one of my favorites, and I like how she came out this time too! Less dramatic, but somehow sweeter.

See some progress pics from the video on this public Patreon post: https://www.patreon.com/posts/50089755

This was my best attended Paint-Along yet! Here's a compiled screen shot of all the participants who painted along (and showed off their results.)


And here's the few who sent theirs to me afterwards, for better clarity! What fun!


You too can paint-along to the full-length video of this bunny for a $10 pledge on my Patreon page here! https://www.patreon.com/posts/vos-episode-49-49960704

Blue and Gold


 "Blue and Gold" (pastel, 10x8 inches) $450

This was actually my first paint-along (with practice critiques) way back in October. I realized I hadn't actually posted the finished painting publicly, so here it is!

Also, I dug this one up because I've decided to add it to my Solo Show (which continues to be going very well!) Sylvie, the gallery manager, is a whiz with sales!

Enjoy a bunch of progress pics extracted from the video, on this post!
