No sleep for the wicked! Just finished one and did another right away! Love this color suedeboard for doing horses. Again this one is in soft pastel. One of these days I am going to try a animal painting in watercolor. I just have to get motivated to drag out all those supplies!

I just got back from my holidays in southern Alberta and the sunshine coast of British Columbia. I had a wonderful time but was itching to paint something! I found this photo of a little puppy that I thought was adorable, so i gave it a try. It is done on suedeboard in soft pastel.

I tried a new paper for me today called colorfix by Art Spectrum. Not sure I like it as well as my suedeboard for animals, but I think it will work well for landscapes.

This painting took a little longer than usual for me. It was harder that I thought it would be. It is done on velour paper in soft pastel from a photo I took in my backyard. The irises are really beautiful this year and this one especially was a beauty.

I wanted to do another horse portrait since I so enjoyed the last one I did. I really love how his mane looks, all those curls. It is done on chocolate suedeboard in soft pastels.

This painting is done on black suedeboard in soft pastel. I wanted to do another tiger painting to go with the "swimming tiger" I did the other day. I liked the long narrow format although it wasn't the smartest move as far as framing goes. Now I have to have one custom made! This painting is for sale by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I did this painting today for a change from my animal paintings and to excite me about my vacation in a week. It is done from a photo I took while at Narrows Inlet, B.C. a couple of years ago. I love this place, and we are going back for some vacation time in another week. I can't wait! This painting is done on Murano pastel paper in soft pastel and is for sale by contacting me at email@example.com.

This painting is done on black suedeboard. I really like to work on the black, especially when there is a lot of black in the picture. This is the first of 2 that I plan on doing of tigers. The next will be of a straight on shot of a tiger walking towards you. I will probably start this one tomorrow, so stay tuned!
