Mazden's Room

I don't have too much too say................it a goalie. I like painting the jersey, trying to get the folds just right.  And I liked doing the "swirley stuff"

Scottish Dance series Fourteen and Fifteen


These are the last two paintings of the fifteen I did for the Cross Border Scottish Dance group.  They used the paintings as trophies to give out when they hosted their competition in Lloydminster October 23rd.  I found some of the plaids very challenging, but I learned a lot from this project!

Scottish Dance series number Eight, Nine and Ten



These are the shoes the Scottish dancers wear, called "ghilies"  They are very soft leather and they lace them up around their ankle and under their instep.

The 4th painting of the series.  The competition was yesterday and apparently the paintings were a big hit.

Scottish Dance series number Three

Here is painting number three.
The flip of the kilt is important in Scottish dance, I have been told.

Scottish Dance series number two

Part of the series I did for the Lloydminster Cross Border Scottish Dancers.  I really like this Sword Dance painting.

Scottish Dance Series

8 x 10 acrylic on canvas.

I did a series of fifteen paintings for the Cross Border Scottish Dance group.  They are hosting a competition here in Lloydminster on Sunday, and instead of giving trophies or plaques, will give paintings to the winners.  How cool is that.  I worked with Cara Zacharias to decide which subjects needed to be painted.  The shoes are ghillies,  (pronounced gillies)  and I realized that it can be quite difficult to paint plaid.

Milford Eugene Lets Play in the Leaves



Milford wants you to come out to play in the crisp fall air.  "Lets romp in the leaves?!"  he seems to say with his big brown eyes.
Available in my Etsy shop.
If you are located in Lloydminster, and would like to purchase this painting, leave me a comment, or message me on Facebook.
Thanks!

Castle at the Lake - Update

Don't kiss that frog, he has a fly in his mouth!

The view up at the top of the castle.

Its hard to get a good photo, because the room is pretty small, only 8 by 10, but big enough for a kingdom all their own. I still want to do some more painting, like adding some critters on the wall, maybe a friendly dragon, too.  And on the floor, maybe a moat, and a drawbridge, and some fishes in the moat and , and, and........ Oh, the possibilies!
