Hopefully this blog will inspire you to have confidence in your creative abilities and give you courage to learn and try new things. Try something NEW. It could be just what you need to make you a better artist, or a better person. My latest obsession is Amigurumi Crochet, and my favorite subjects right now are Hollywood Icons, Famous People and Characters.

NFAC, Nibblefest Art Contest August 20-27, 2014

August 20-27, 2014
That's my Divo Dog on the right, 3rd place last month!

The Nibblefest theme this month is FOREST CREATURES.
This is my entry in the Nibblefest Art Contest, a themed art contest beginning on the 20th of each month. Please be sure to search Ebay.com for NFAC to see more great entries, each starting at just $0.99. Thanks!

Bidding starts at 99 cents for each of the paintings below, by me, and 50+ by other artists. Only 3 days left.  Bidding ends on August 27.

12 x 16 Acrylic on canvas board, Squirrel at Feeder in a tree. Signed Painting, Original art, not a print.  

A Psychedelic Owl I painted for a weekly challenge on Daily Paintworks. Painted on an 11x14 Gessobord, with Acrylic impasto technique using a palette knife in an abstract style with the brightest colors I could find, some neons, and very thick paint. The Fluorescent colors glow beautifully under black light. Seriously. Homage to the 70's. You need a black light to get the full effect. I was inspired to use neons after seeing paintings by Francoise Nielly. She paints huge colorful faces.  
Plus a miniature ACEO 2.5 x 3.5 inches 
Big Cat, Lioness, done for a challenge on DPW. 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Watercolor, pen and ink. Comes with a FREE mat. Ready to mount in standard 5x7 frame.


  1. Lovely entries all, Penny, though I am particularly partial to the little squirrel :-). What a cutie -- lots of character in that face and posture....!

    1. Thanks, Patience. The 99 cent auctions are a way to introduce people to buying affordable art and to find new collectors!
