This is a painting that organically came to life as assorted thoughts were dancing in my mind ... like prickly pear, two moons, breasts, boats, and other magical elements.

Today I had the pleasure of having a live model in the studio. Her name is Tracey and she had purple hair and rainbow bangs. And a spider web tattoo. I've never oil painted using a live model reference so this was a challenging and quite fulfilling event for me.

I definitely had Valentine's Day on my mind for this one. I used to love all the elementary and junior high school activities surrounding Valentines ... buying and addressing those pre-packaged cards with their tiny envelopes and then distributing them to my classmates into the paper envelopes that we would make and tape to the front of our desks. Whoever I had a crush on would get what I thought was the most special card of the bunch as I imagined things like receiving long-stemmed roses and messages of requited love. (Never happened but it was fun to imagine.)

I love palette knife work and collage work that John Erickson incorporates into his paintings. I used one such painting of his as reference, along with a photo I took of a cute little dog that was outside my local Gypsy Den cafe that I was stepping out of one morning for this work. I didn't add collage like Erickson so masterfully does but was really tempted to.

This is the demo painting I made during a private painting session that I gave in my studio today. It was a beautiful session with a beautiful artist who delighted in every step of the process. What a wonderful day.

I was at Trader Joe's today and went a wittle bit overboard on buying their beautiful selection of flowers. This bouquet I decided to paint before unwrapping and putting them in a vase. I just really like the look of the craft paper wrapped around the flowers. So minimal and beautiful.

In addition to the carnations, I bought a single rose at the florist yesterday and painted it today. I used the palette knife for the flower and leaves and then a brush for everything else.

Painting Tip 12 :: Pinky Coral (oils)

To mix a really beautiful pinky coral with oil paints, this is how I do it: Cad Red Medium (Utrecht), Caucasion Flesh Tone (Gamblin), and white (Windsor Newton). To make it lean less pink and more orange, I reduce the Cad Red and increase the Flesh.

I was at Macres Florist in Santa Ana today (a lovely family-owned and operated business), ordering a corsage for my son's date for high school winter formal. After I ordered the corsage, I saw these cute little carnations in their flower fridge and decided to bring some home to paint. They're not the most expensive flowers but I think they're really pretty and interesting. I painted this work entirely win a palette knife (except for the toning which I did with my favorite new brush: a large 2-inch ivory short flat brush by Rosemary&Company).
