new painting

I just finished a new painting, in the midst of commission work. I worked on this one a long time, and underneath are several totally different layers, including a girl with Medusa snake head I painted when I was really frustrated!

Above is the final incarnation titled Dreaming, 24 x 30 inches, acrylic on wood panel, available here.

baseball week

Kai went to his first and second MLB baseball game this week! Since we moved to the bay area, we have both become Giants fans, and it was so fun to see them play two of their last home games of the season. Tuesday night's game was fairly terrible, and since Kai and I are both kind of (mostly) crazy, we decided at the last minute to drive down again yesterday afternoon.

We were so glad we did! We sat in the bleachers (only $10 a ticket- we would definitely recommend this over buying normal seats) amongst drunk (we were surrounded on either side by groups of bartenders) and giddy Giants fans, and had so much fun watching our team rack up the points, while eating delicious fried chicken from Farmer Brown's Little Skillet (a really neat chicken and waffle stand only a couple blocks from AT&T park).

If we could afford post season tickets (apparently they start around one hundred and some dollars for the bleachers) we'd be there every game!

Kai pieced together the top panorama. I was smiling the whole game, but apparently not when he took this surprise photo.

My only gripe with baseball is: where is women's baseball? Did professional women's baseball only exist in the forties? Hmm...

I just finished a new painting titled Rose Queen, available here. Three more are in the works, and should be done soon if all goes well.

the best thing i have ever seen!

After a very long week, I saw the best thing ever and it totally made everything better!! I couldn't stop laughing the whole drive down to San Francisco. I dream of turning into this couple with their gorgeous car and goggled pup!

two commissions

I have been busy with a fun group of commissions the last few months, there are still a bunch in the works, but I thought I'd share a couple finished recently. Above is a 24 x 60 inch lake scene I made for a lovely Australian couple (I'm packing it up right now to ship off). And below, a 9 x 12 inch fox couple for my sweet friend Elka's sister's wedding.
