Blue Dachshund Christmas

Blue Dachshund Christmas
watercolor 4x6 in.
I feel like Alice in Wonderland falling down the rabbit hole. I'm late. I'm late! I started out ahead. How did I get to be late? Two commissioned paintings completed, working on the third to be finished today (that's the plan), I will be left with two more to paint before December 31. How did it get to be December 18 so quickly? Only one week until Christmas 2014. Another year almost over. I must get back to painting now.

Have a Merry, Merry Christmas!

As a child, I was reprimanded for daydreaming. Today my daydreams morph into paintings.

November: Lung Cancer Awareness Month

Postcard Sketches of Clematis Flower
November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. We all know people who have fought the battle with lung cancer. Many of us have lost loved ones to this war. The two sketches below are offered to benefit LungCancerAlliance. I will be listing these in the Etsy gallery shop soon. You will find a mini-gallery floating in the right hand side bar at Texas Sauce Art Life.

November 30 need not be the end of Lung Cancer Awareness. As we move forward into December and the new year 2015, let's do what we can to help find better treatments and/or a cure for lung cancer.

Sketchbook Art, Tree Study in Blue and Yellow

Tree Study in Blue and Yellow
watercolor on sketchbook paper
copyright Vernita Bridges Hoyt

When I need a warm up to help me into a different medium, I can always count on a tree or few to do the job.

Over the weekend, I did several sketches in ink line with a watercolor wash. Primary colors always call to me, this time blue and yellow. The beauty of a sketchbook is that I can paint whatever I want with whatever colors I want to use. Nothing has to be realistic.

I like the simplicity of this piece. With the right mat and frame … 

After the warmup, I proceeded to a commissioned  artwork.

What child didn't know the "This Little Piggy" rhyme? 
Give a fun memory to a loved one this Christmas with a colorful "Pigtails" fine art print. 

"This Little Piggy Went to Market"

 The Pigtails series have been one of my most popular, 
and now one of the paintings is offered as a beautiful giclee print, professionally printed.
