I am a Professional Artist in Fairhope, Alabama. My work is in multiple media but my favorite is Acrylics~next in line Watercolors and then Oils. My favorite subjects include local wildlife, landscape~usually with boats, and obsession paintings (looking at other peoples obsessions in a new way).I participate in a lot of outdoor shows with helper and spouse Christopher. I do several outdoor shows a year and this blog is about the adventures getting ready for them.

The central panel from the Rangoli show for Blue Velvet Studio. Things are progressing nicely now, with more pieces coming out of the studio for the 100 days~100 paintings. This one really struck a chord with me as there apparently is a great deal of Rangoli dedicated to Peacocks. This is a detail of one with some additional white work added. I really enjoyed this one even thought the layering of the paint about drove me over the edge. For those of you that paint, you would understand that the transparent colors will really test your mettle. For this one, that is the lime green and the brilliant blues! The paint had to be layered on with at least 4 coats!
