Comparing Acrylic to Watercolor

Do you prefer one over the other?
First painting:  Acrylic
Second painting:  Watercolor and ink

For me watercolors tend to be more ‘free.’ I like to quickly draw, quickly paint and have it be a little crazy.  

With acrylics I get a little pickier and can spend a LOT of time on them.  You can see that the BEGGAR’S face is detailed, but the farther you get from his face, the wilder it gets.  That’s simply my style, and helps you focus on what’s important instead of, say, his tail.  So... which do you like better? :)

Cat Painting Finished!!

May I present my newest painting!  Once more I have given birth.  That’s what it feels like! 

This is ‘The Beggar.’ You can find many works like this on my website.  Doesn’t he have a beautiful face? ❤️ 
This is an acrylic on canvas.  I used a photo of our cat, sitting on my studio floor, begging for me to love him. 
There.  Everything cleaned up. :)

New Painting Coming!

Bright!  No filter needed! Watch for my new painting in the next couple days.  When I’ve got two or more brushes loaded simultaneously it’s a good thing.  It means I’ve done some serious planning and pre-frenzy work and now it’s all out.

Aren’t these colors luscious?

 Stay tuned!

Tiny Watercolor

I’m curious which you like best - the first one with the background, or the second one without the background? 

Just a little watercolor sketch inspired by that teeny little branch I found on our recycling can.

 Sometimes I do little sketches like this as a segue into the big stuff, sometimes this is all I have time for, and often because it inspires me.  Also note the background color in the top half is Daniel Smith’s Fuchsite Genuine.  It is made up of ground fuchsite and has a smooth lay down with a bit of a sheen to it.  LOVE.

New Holographic Stickers

WOW! I am super excited about my newest hologram stickers!! 

I took a photo of one of my paintings using black light paints to make these.  Every angle changes the colors of these super cool holo stickers.  3”x3”   Find them at
As you can see, every angle and direction of light changes them!  COOL.
Oh, man.  I LOVE these!
This was a paint pour I did which turned out absolutely lovely; I’m sure glad I made stickers from it!

My Painting Matches the Clouds

After spending days painting my kitty I looked up and noticed that I had chosen God’s color scheme. ❤️ Thank you, God, for making us creative people and for allowing us to appreciate your creativity.  

Wow.  The sky was sooo beautiful last night. It seemed like a verification that, yes indeed, I am doing exactly what God planned for me.

Cat Painting Finished!

Belly Boy!  I’m so glad to show my my latest painting  which I actually did name Belly Boy!  I tried naming him Comfortable Cat but that was just too boring.  

This is our Maine Coon with his double coat and super-pettable peachy belly.

This photo, with my super-gorgeous model, shows how I package my paintings for mailing.  Mounted and sealed in an acrylic envelope.

You can find this painting on my website with more pictures which I took in different lights so you can see how it shows itself off.  It’s 10”x7” - not too big, not too small... juust  right.  Watercolour
