"First Touch" [20x16"] ©2002 Randy B. Nutt
As painted shapes and fragments come together, they start to have identities. They speak to each other and build relationships....  from the Cut Painted Paper Series

 Characters are interacting on an open stage that opens out onto the world.

...another one from the "Chasing Light" series.  I was chasing sunlight, the cosmic gift to everyday. It was coming through the glass brick onto my drawing table. I just captured the shapes.

"Lil' Dragon 2, Pyro Training"

"Lil' Dragon 2, Pyro Training" is officially completed!  Personally, I like the colors I used in this version and I like how he seems to be developing a personality.  He seems to be taking on a lot of traits that belong to our little min pin ... this should be interesting to watch as he evolves.

For now, here is Lil' Dragon 2 in pyro training .....






























Hope you are all having a very enjoyable day!

Take care, be happy,
Karen Anne aka Ireland Brady

SITTING PRETTY by Alexandra Kopp

The warm weather is finally here 
and it is time to get out side and do some plein air painting. 
 SITTING PRETTY is a plein air oil painting
 done in Havre de Grace, Maryland at the waterfront.
  It was a beautiful calm day, slightly overcast. 
 The birds were totally enjoying it.  

I love the challenge of painting outdoors, still being a novice,
 each time it is a learning experience.
  Our spring has been quite rainy, 
so the sunny painting days are far and few between.

Sun or clouds, it is always a good day when I get a chance to paint plein air.

This painting is available in my ETSY shop, Alexandras Studio
