She was always awkward in family photos (my latest sheep painting!)


"She was always awkward in family photos" (pastel, 30x30 inches) $4500

This painting had been in the works since April after my two other large sheep paintings sold from my solo show! I guess I might become known as the "sheep lady" instead of the "cow lady" lol!

Watch a 5 minute speed demo of this painting Here! It includes a short intro explaining my thought process for the composition and how I made it. Some closeup details also in that link!

Park Trail #55


  "Park Trail #55" (pastel, 8x8 inches) framed. Buy here.

Finally, here was my last demo from the August workshop in New Braunfels. The 3rd day is when I usually do a landscape demo. 

I sometimes like to show an alternate underpainting method, so I painted this one with a pastel underpainting washed in with denatured alcohol, starting on one of my single-primed gold-colored boards. Unfortunately I didn't get any process pics during the demo, but it was the same process I used on Park Trail #41, here.

I thought I was done with this painting three times, click here to view pictures and read more!
