Callas flowers in watercolor

Sometimes it’s nice to paint white flowers, they are both fun and challenging. A fellow artist took this snapshot and gave me permission to use it. This painting measures 5″ x 7″ and it is for sale. $50.00 takes it home to anywhere in the world. All proceeds go to endangered species conservation.

Another cat on a wall

breadcatThis little painting was an exercise in color; honestly, I was just playing with color. To keep my creativity flowing, sometimes I have to paint even when I don’t have a good subject, so I make them up. As are most of my paintings, this one is for sale. All proceeds go towards endangered species conservation. For $50.00, this painting could be yours.

Bamford on my mind

bamfordonmymind
An artist on the loose with paints and paper can be a dangerous thing. I was looking for something in my bookcase, and I came upon a book that used to belong to a deceased friend of mine named Lori. I flipped through the book and discovered a postcard reproduction of a Frida Kahlo painting called “Diego en mi pensamiento.” It got my attention, because my friend Dale has spoken of this painting more than once, but this was the first time I had ever seen it. So.. I thought, what the hay, why not copy it? And well, it was fun!

What do I do when I don’t know what to paint?

mesaWhat do I do when I don’t know what to paint? I often seek inspiration from other artists; and yesterday, I saw several of Georgia O’Keeffe’s paintings. In her work, I saw these colors, and I remembered them from when I visited her ghost ranch. This little painting is from a photo I took right near there last summer when I was in New Mexico.
