Ivory Soap in Enamel Dish, Embellished Print

Purchasing an embellished print
allows art buyers to enjoy
original-looking art for less than
"original" prices!
This is my artwork, printed
on card stock, and entirely
painted over in Oils.
Check my Etsy store for
this one, and others
like it!

Mushroom Family

After lots of experimenting
with Oil Pastels on

Winter Wren

I'm loving the strength of line
and colour I'm able to get with

Tip: always use the Sennelier

on mat board.
I discovered I can
safely use Fixatif
on Oil Pastels, both
between layers, and
as a final coat!

Old Master's Copy


I haven't created too many new works other than my
commissioned work lately, so I thought I'd post
an ACEO from a series I did about a year ago,
depicting details from Old Master's Paintings.
I was attracted to the sensitive mouth and pockmarked
face of this man, the musician, Gluck.
