Two new paintings! Gettin' Steamed and Meeting of the Minds

I've been keeping very busy here.. getting back on track after the big move! I think I have figured out where most things go in the studio and am trying to get organized.. (as organized as I can be... my skills leave a bit to be desired) Just today I received my new shipment of art panels and I will be painting again through the weekend!
I am posting two larger scale paintings of the mason jars.. (I have to sneak one in here and there between the smaller still life paintings for the show in Oct.) These paintings are very different from one another but I like them both. Gettin' Steamed is really bold and strong and Meeting of the Minds is very soft and quiet.. I really want to keep Meeting of the Minds for above the bed but I paint to tell a story and I already know it so I will share it with others.
Have a great weekend!

Gettin' Steamed 40" x 50"

Meeting of the Minds 36" x 60"

Studio and Last Man Standing pics

Better late than never!! Here are two pics of the new studio... one from the inside out and the other from the outside in! I love it!! I am still settling in but painting every day too!

I am also posting a painting that I finished last month and never got to post.. with all the moving and chaos. Title "Last Man Standing" (40" x 50"), it is a painting of stacking wooden dolls/toys, these from the 50's, that are called Bill Dings... get it? Buildings?? Even though I never had them as a child, I love them and play with these guys all the time in the studio. They are still made today, but now they look more like clowns and are kinda creepy. I like the round old goofy guys like these!

Have a great weekend!
