I completed two octopus illustrations for a friend who is looking for a tattoo design. I really enjoyed the simplicity of the pen and ink and am very happy with the resulting illustrations. I can see doing more of these in watercolor and ink.
I just sold my first painting on http://www.bendystar.etsy.com It’s the painting of the garlic and onion. I am so happy that it went to a good home and will be graced on a kitchen wall surrounded by other oil paintings of various vegetables and spices. I delivered the painting to La Jolla since the buyer was in my area, so the sale doesn’t show on the etsy site. But believe me, it’s a good start! Here’s a picture of the sold painting.
I have finally started my very own etsy shop online where you can purchase original paintings easily! Please visit http://www.bendystar.etsy.com to shop or just browse. Thank you for visiting!
Many of you have asked me to notify you of this event- I will have 3 paintings up for sale. “The Soccer Player”, “Religion Can Be Dangerous”, and “Keith Drinking Wine”. I hope you can attend, and if not- wish me luck!

I went on location to Coronado and set up for a study of the dinghy landing. It was a more active area than I anticipated and was lucky enough to have finished the painting right as the owner came to take his dinghy away. I am happy to report, he approved of this painting.
