The Green Phone

8x8 acrylic on canvas panel

I bought an old rotary phone a few years back when I lived in Cincinnati thinking that it would be pretty cool if we could it in our house.  But it never actually happened and eventually we did away with the landline. Now it's basically a toy for my son.  But I do miss these old phones...

6x6 acrylic on canvas panel

This is a reworked piece from a couple months ago.  If a painting sits around for awhile sometimes it starts nagging me that it needs to be changed.  This was one of those paintings.  I am happy with the changes. Hopefully it won't hound me again :)

Two Strawberries

4"x4"acrylic on canvas

Just one tiny painting today because I felt a little rushed.  I prefer to paint in natural light, but this time of year the natural light starts to seem limited.  Also, I need to paint before my son wakes up from his nap.  Speaking of naptime, here is a random picture from today of my cat curled up with my son. The cat takes a bit of abuse from this 3-year-old, but he just loves him anyway.
