The Boston Tea Party

The Boston Tea Party


Nibblefest this month is "Tea Time" so for me to paint the Boston Tea party seemed almost a little too obvious.

In this painting, Lola (our inherited Boston Terrier) and Mr. Wiggles are reunited for a little tea party!

The Boston Tea Party

This painting is 8x10 (I'm making an effort to work larger this year) and is oil on canvas.


Here's a link:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/231665069721?

As with all Nibblefest entries, this one starts at just 99¢, no reserve!  This is just a 3 day auction, it ends on Thursday, August 27.

The People's Art Contest! February theme - Eggs!

Attention artists!  You might be interested in this art contest my friend Christine has started.  Here's a copy/paste of the brief description:


About This Contest

The People's Art Contest (PAC) is a completely democratic art contest. The monthly theme is chosen by the people, the prize amount and number of places paid depend on the number of people who enter, and the people are the judges


It's only $6 to enter, and you can enter any 2D work (painting or drawing, new or old, sold or available).  The participating artists are the people who vote.

The People's Art Contest

For this month I'm entering a painting I did in 2009, I probably posted it here back then:

Eggy
2.5 x 3.5
Oil on Masonite Panel

30/30 Challenge, Day Twenty Nine: Major Wuss

Major Wuss


Major Wuss
3x3
Oil on Wood Panel


For painting #29 I decided to try another more realistic painting.   This is Buttercup/Kevin/Carl, now most commonly known as "Major Wuss."  He's our largest cat, and is the biggest wuss you'd ever want to see.  He has a perpetual look of alarm on his face and is always ready to run off in terror.  There are other things too but I don't feel like writing a story.

Be Careful when swimming in the waters of Lake Wibble, this frightening beast awaits.

30/30 Challenge, Day Twenty Five: Sparky and the Squid

The Monster at the Window


"The Monster at the Window"
3x3, Oil on Wood Panel
Click here for the listing

Sparky heard something tapping at the window and was afraid it was a monster! Luckily(?) it was "only" the squid.

For this painting I decided to piggyback on one of DPW's (Daily Paintworks) challenges which featured a tuxedo cat looking out the window. I thought this was an excellent opportunity to bring Sparky into the challenge, with of course his nemesis, the squid.
