"Standing Guard II" is in charge!

"Standing Guard II"  11"x14" Mixed media on canvas
Here is a kitty that has been watching that mouse house front door a little too long. His eyes are crossed!

This mixed media painting was done with acrylic paints and those water soluble crayons by Caran D'Ache of Switzerland called  Neocolor II. Here is a photo of the box of crayons.
Guess they are called wax pastels...
I get the opportunity to work with children every once in a while and the above painting was started at one of those times. The age group of the kids usually dictates the degree of finish I get to when teaching the painting. The one above is one that I started and the kids were in the 5 to 6 year old group They finished their paintings so fast I did all I could to keep up! So I brought this painting home and it's been sitting around the studio for a little over a year, I think. Yesterday, I was having one of those days that I keep working around the studio cleaning and arranging things instead of starting or finishing a painting. This one called out to me. I forgot to take a photo of the before, but I did play around with the "wax pastels" and this painting is another to add to my Kitty Cat Series! Perfect.

Look what I found to do next! Another painting that I painted with 5 and 6 year olds! Wow, I am a slow painter!!
So this is the before or underpainting.....
Interesting that this is another kitty....  lucky me.   : )

Have a lovely day!

"Wild Rose" -SOLD

  • "Wild Rose"  15"x11"   oil on paper -SOLD
Now, should this be rose painting number 1 or do I continue where I left off in January and let this be rose painting number 16? Myra?

I have another that I did same time as this one. I actually did three paintings in one sitting. I kind of like painting that way, I don't know why.

Okay then, here are the other two!
"Wild Orange Rose"  15"x11" oil on paper
"Orange Kitty"  15"x11" oil on paper
I know weird, two roses and a kitty painting. Who's to question the artists mind? Huh? 

This is kitty painting number... five or six, I need to go back and check.  : )

Have a great day!
