This is the painting I did for the Paso Robles Art Association's Small Treasures show and fundraiser. It sold at the preview party last night!
When I paint it's quite the opposite of my illustration work which is clean and neat. I start out using brushes to put in the large areas of color and then I switch to a palette knife to add shading, texture and color details.
This particular painting is of the stray cat that decided to adopt me a few years ago. Another artist said she looks mad, I told him that's the look she gives me when she doesn't want to go back outside! Not mad, just trying to control my mind. :)

Here's a look at the plate I painted for the BookPlates! fundraiser, it's been fired! The plate will be auctioned off by the Paso Robles Library Foundation on November 30th accompanied by a few books that I've illustrated.
Tickets to the event can be purchased on their website.
