James – A Personality

Mixed Media on Gessoed Watercolor Board
10" by 10" 
Here are the fraternal twin's portraits hanging out together.

I combined several photos of these twin boys to capture their personalities and kept the background exuberant in layers of paper. Their Mom said I got their personalities to a T. The mediums used are open acrylics, colored pencil, and collage.

Mother's Day

So, I painted a chick (a baby chicken) for Mother's day. :) A little creature for my Mom to imagine mothering. I'll be posting that tomorrow.

In the meanwhile,

Happy Mother's Day to the Moms out there!

A Waterbird

An Ernest Waterbird
5 1/2" by 10"
Open Acrylics on Gessoed Watercolor Board  

Long-legged and long beaked I believe this guy is a type of waterbird, but unfortunately I did not record his species. I got a reference snap of him at the San Diego Wild Animal Park. I love how he is squeezed to fit in this long format. I hope you enjoy him. :)
P.S. This was photographed with my new digital camera. I'm quite pleased with the results.
