A Plausible Monster? Part One

[Now that they are published, here’s part two and part three-A, and three-B will be released soon] I could go back to staying “safe” on this blog, and not stick my neck out again. Nothing weird or controversial. But that’s boring. And in some respects, it wouldn’t be right. For today, I thought a niceContinue reading “A Plausible Monster? Part One”

Getting Published in Prehistoric Times, New Art Show

It’s been a busy couple of months with a new job, but there’s some good news. I have been re-invited back to the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center to sell artwork at their arts and crafts fair. The fair is planned for July 11th, and I’ll be working on more artwork. I’m also happy toContinue reading “Getting Published in Prehistoric Times, New Art Show”

I Now Have an Etsy Shop

As of today, I have opened up a shop on the shopping website Etsy. This would be a great chance to sell some of my dinosaur and landscape paintings, and perhaps other items later on. Only 5 items are there right now, but more shall be added as time goes on. Since I just haveContinue reading “I Now Have an Etsy Shop”

More Art, Plans for the Blog, Cameroon Voyage

I’ve been painting a good deal more than I have been writing, to my regret. But the writing is coming back to me, thanks to some writers groups I have been a part of or leading for years. The blog is going to have more musings, sharings, rants, and oddjob add-ons in general. A littleContinue reading “More Art, Plans for the Blog, Cameroon Voyage”

Selling Paintings at the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center

This is first post I have written in a very long time, I’ll admit. I have some good news. Not just good. Ecstatic. A family member and I went up to the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center in Woodland Park, CO this weekend. I took along a couple of paintings to show them, just inContinue reading “Selling Paintings at the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center”

Mist and Moonlight

Here’s the latest of my acrylic paintings, a commission called “Mist and Moonlight.” As always, it’s an acrylic work, and I painted it on an 8 x 10 inch canvas. Thank you very much for stopping by and having a look. I should be returning here soon with some more writing, as well. Hope youContinue reading “Mist and Moonlight”

Artwork: Cabins and Trees

These are two new paintings, done for a good friend who’s moving away and wanted a reminder of Colorado. Both are, as always, done with acrylic paint. I hope you enjoy them. [Copyright, of course, belongs to me.]  

“Moss-Covered Mansion” – A Mother’s Day Card

I’ve started painting my own cards. This will come in handy around birthdays and Christmas. I’m also going to try selling them, very soon. I’ll keep you posted on that. “Moss-Covered Mansion” is a Mother’s Day card I did for my grandmother. (My mom will get one too, of course!) Painted in acrylics, which were diluted to look likeContinue reading ““Moss-Covered Mansion” – A Mother’s Day Card”

New Painting, New Articles

Good evening, everyone. Here’s another one of the paintings I’ve done recently. It was auctioned off by the Pikes Peak Writers Conference last week. I wasn’t able to attend the conference itself due to insufficient finances, but learned a lot from a “pre-conference workshop” the day before. Especially about query letters, and how painfully uninformed IContinue reading “New Painting, New Articles”

New Paintings, and I Got Interviewed!

Good morning everyone! I have a couple of new acrylic paintings to share. Sorry I haven’t gotten much writing done, but that’s changing this afternoon, God willing. There’s stories to be finished in them there hills. In other news, I got interviewed about my artwork by the New Falcon Herald, a local newspaper. The articleContinue reading “New Paintings, and I Got Interviewed!”
