Cowbert's muse:
Robert Southey poet.. painting by John James Masquerier ( 1800- public domain image)

Original acrylic painting for Nibblefest art contest theme of "Black and White"- February 2015

My entry is  "Cowbert Moo-ney  " based on poet laureate, Robert Southey's portrait , painted by  John James Masquerier ( 1800- public domain image).   Robert Southey was known for his poetry and documenting his dreams in letters, often based on death.   What a coincidence!!  Cowbert is also known to document dreams of death in a book of poetry  and written tales of cattle that have left the ranch. Cowbert likes to munch on grass while recording these dreams..  T-bone, Sirloin and Meatloaf Moo-ney to name a few are in Cowberts book titled, "The Mad Cow Dairy"- by Cowbert Moo-ney

I painted this portrait of Cowbert just like his favorite poet Robert Southey.  He was honored to be have his portrait painted.

NEW Polish Pottery Still Life painting and number 87 in the series (13 to go to #100!!!!!!  Yay!!!)

Colored Daisies: Polish Pottery LXXXVII
6x12x1 3/8"
acrylic on canvas
varnished and ready to hang on a wall or display on a shelf!  Deep canvas makes it easy to just stand on a shelf! :)

Painting #9 in January 30 in 30.. finished in February? ;D

Ok.. I started this painting to be completed in January but then life got in the way. A very busy week and I just didn't have much time to paint but I did hope to finish this one in January to post in the challenge. I'll see if I can even add it to the challenge? Maybe  it's too late.   The thing about this challenge that is so wonderful is it gets me out of my painting lulls.. I have been in a bit of a funk since the end of 2014.  I was really only completing my Nibblefest art contest entry each month.   This year I'm wanting to blog more (yeah I know I've said that in the past).  Facebook is making it harder and harder for art pages to be seen so maybe blogging more is the answer?

My goal this year is to work on my Polish Pottery still life series, add new items to my Etsy shop
 ( that I hope to announce soon) , paint more animals (great break in between still lives to not get burned out) and keep at my abstracts.  Really enjoy the abstracts.

Anywho.. this would of been my 9th in January..  but I plan to keep up my painting momentum and blogging more.. So please follow my blog.
