4" X 5" ACRYLIC ON illustration board

     I'm quite happy with how this one turned out.  My own reference photo...I set up the shot and tried various settings and lighting.  The one thing that surprised me was how long it took to paint.  It was much more labor intense than I expected.  It took the best part of the week, painting a bottle a day (I said painting not drinking! LOL)

     I have not listed this one for sale as I will likely frame it and then enter it in a miniature exhibition, but if you are interested in this or a painting similar, please contact me at rlwalker @ spaces)

Coming Home...First Nations Inspired painting.....aceo

 Coming Home 2.5" x 3.5" acrylic & Ink

I've always been inspired by First Nation Art,  in particular Plains People.  I'm drawn to the beautiful simplicity of it and the very nature of it....For me it's magical.  I used to include a pair of similar styled geese on every envelope I sent a painting in......I don't know why I stopped.... Here is a piece I painted today titled Coming Home.  As always you will find this piece listed on Ebay.  Enjoy

First Frost!!!!! Foxglove and Lace

I started this 20 x 24" painting about 4 or 5  years ago.....I painted the background and then kind of lost my inspiration for it.......I showed it to a group of artist friends and they threw out various suggestions ..mostly to keep the ghostly look of it...  Some suggested even,  that it was finished.   Anyway, I have renewed interest in it, and started working on it again.

 This is what I've done so far....I've added some Queen Anne's Lace at the back, some more blooms (but not many because it's getting late in the season) and have started painting on "frost"......

Fairies are Born
2.5" x 3.5"

   My fellow artist and friend Cheryl had painted an African Puff flower.....It reminded me of dandelions gone to seed.  I love dandelions and their seeds floating through the air (as long as it's not in my yard)  It has sort of a magical feel about it.  So I decided that this was how fairies were born...and then they float away on the summer breeze
