Pay it Forward; free gift

From here

I will make a handmade gift for the first 3 interested people who comment on this post. I have 365 days to do it in…What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise! The catch is that you must participate as well: you must have a blog and before you leave your comment here, write up a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going.(just cut and paste this one if you like!, which I did)

This could be a lot of fun! :o)

More Medusa Revisted

I've got Medusa on the brain. The color task here was "half-colored."
None of these three medusas are done, probably.

Medusa Revisited yet again

Medusa Revisited yet again, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. This is a new version of an old painting. I am playing with strange (to me) color combinations and being a little free-form for fun (play).

Fallen Moon, Last in Jessie's

Fallen Moon, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. This is from a dream a few nights ago. It's the last one in Jessie's, which I'll be packaging up and sending off to Jessie as soon as I can--maybe not today but soon. Gouache and colored pencil.

Gemini, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. This is a digitally altered gouache painting done in Jessie's mole. The painting was roughly after a painting by Dick Moore in the 60s.

No Escape

No Escape, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. Abuse is hell.

Biker Buddy Water Color Sketch on April Fool's Day

I did this quick watercolor sketch at dinner last night--I started with water soluble markers (pink and green) and then switched to water colors.

If you are wondering why all my sketches of him have a similar background and look, it's because he sits at the same spot at the dining room table for dinner every night and then likes to linger over wine or beer and that's when I paint him. Click here to see him doing exactly that.
