Oil Painting for Breakfast

I feel alive. Filled with passion. All day long. All week long. All I have been thinking about are lines, values and colors. I got five canvasses all primed and prepped. Sketches in each one, raw and waiting for dabs of paint. I am ready to lose myself again for a few days. How glorious.

The Unbreakable Bond


From the moment Babar stuck out his little pink tongue and licked my fingers I knew I would love him very dearly. But an even stronger bond developed between Babar and my husband. I guess boys understand each other more. I am too much of a hugger and most of the time Babar would wriggle out of my embrace. He enjoys the wrestling game he plays with my husband more. When husband is at home I am ignored, well until he gets hungry. Only then will my face gets licked non-stop. Haha.I love how much they adore each.

Babar and hubby’s portrait of mutual adoration. Loved working on this painting. It was laborious but I am happy about the result.

When An Artist Captures Your Imagination And Your Soul


The piece of art that an artist creates is an expression of his inner self, his thoughts, his beliefs; How he sees the world and everything on it. If his work touches you in any way, your emotions, sentiments and intellect; the artist has succeeded in seducing you to look at the world from his point of view and you might never look at it the same way again.

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie


I am working on a new painting of Babar in deep slumber and I am enjoying the first stage of the process. Like romance the beginning is the most thrilling for the possibilities of what the outcome will look like are limitless.
