The Gas Station - Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Neko Sleeping

I was wanting something to paint yesterday, so I took a bunch of photographs of the cat.  I finally decided on the one of her sleeping next to the window.

Apples Study - Abstract

Apples study in the abstract. I set up a traditional stillife and dumped these apples off to the side.  After I wiped away my block-in of the traditional setup, I glanced over at these apples and decided this would be a better subject.

Ruth Chew Books

This is a painting from about seven years ago.  I painted this when I was doing one small painting a day.
Recently, I've started reading a few of Ruth Chew's books again.  I loved these books when I was a kid.  Whenever there was a reading fair at school (RIF- Reading is Fundamental), I bought up these books and took them home.  As a child with a wild imagination, these books really appealed to me. I loved the topics of witches and magic. I also enjoyed her artwork. She was an illustrator too. The older books have her artwork in them.
Opening these books again, I'm almost transported back to being a kid again, maybe by some sort of magic.
