This week I'm working on a painting from one of my Halloween sketchbooks where I get to indulge my fascination for all things Victorian and Gothic. I'm painting on an 11" x 14" cradled birch panel using acryla gouache, house paint and matte acrylic. Sadly, since the trees I planted outside of my studio a few years ago have grown in so beautifully, I no longer have as much natural light as I used to, so getting a nice tabletop shot is a bit tricky. But hey, I love trees.

The holidays are over now. But I'll continue to plug in the Christmas lights every morning until the tree grows brittle and threatens to become a fire hazard. Likewise, I'm only just now finishing up my holiday paintings in the ole' art journal. Here, the Dear, Departed Cap'n finds plenty of time to dawdle away a Christmas morning playing with the newest thing in electric trains. Another year steams into the fog, and a fresh one sails in. Happy New Year, me hearties!

Over the holidays I got behind in my posting because I was working on a couple of family portraits. here's one of a sweet family newly relocated from California to Texas. They love camping and the kids enjoy collecting wood for the fire and playing with lanterns and headlamps.

Here's a set of Christmas and winter illustrations that can be downloaded and used for creating all sorts of holiday stuff, from invitations to emails to web pages. It's no surprise that lots of silly animals are included and a few retro elements as well. All are on transparent backgrounds. They're new in my Creative Market store.
