Green Tiger - a gift for my school

School starts again next week, so I'll be back at work teaching in the art classroom soon.  Yesterday I decided to paint a little present for our school.  Our mascot is a tiger and our school colors are green and white, hence the subject matter.  The stripes of the tiger, and using the white of the paper to my advantage, were a lot of fun to paint.  I dropped the painting off at school today when I went in to do some classroom prep, and it looks like it will be finding a home in the main office. Go Tigers!

Ocean View of Aquinnah

This watercolor painting is of the clay Gay Head Cliffs in Aquinnah on Martha's Vineyard.  I used a photo I had taken while deep sea fishing the previous summer as reference.  The painting measures approximately 11"x8".  You can see the less detailed color study that I did for this painting right here.

Prints now available through Society6!

Earlier this week I signed up to join the website Society6, and I am proud to announce that I can now offer prints for sale through them.  My other print shop isn't going anywhere, but with Society6 I can offer a wider range of my art as prints, and there is also the added opportunity of being able to have my art printed on laptop skins, iPad skins, and iPhone skins and cases.  Take a look, because there is art posted there for sale that is not in my other print shop.  More art will be added to my Society6 shop in the coming weeks as well.

And as a bonus, shipping is free worldwide through Sunday, August 26th!
