Chocolate Mufffin

Chocolate Muffin
I seem to have neglected to post this guy ; painted earlier this month.This was one of the tighter pieces, I am trying to understand a new paper.It was fun to work with strong colors,though.

A cute cat in expressive watercolor.I have been experimenting with various papers and the results are varying,too. Sometimes I tend to drift towards ' too realistic' ...I painted this one to remind myself to stick to my favorite style, loose with mingling colors. This is what excites me most. 
As the Christmas approaches, everything is more rushed.Just got another commission for elephants from a surgeon in HongKong for her office-- exciting!Will keep you posted.
The house hunting seems to come to a conclusion, a happy one;too.Hoping to get the keys soon and can't wait to move in...I  really need more space!

Owl Eyes and Cute Raccoon

Two more small works done recently.Owls are my all time favorites while raccoon just made its debut.I have heard many people do not like them very much, considering their wild ways...but I could not resist this cute face!Hope you all are having a great weekend.

Pansy the Panda

A giant panda in vibrant violets.I enjoyed painting him fast and loose.He turned out to be quite cute!
I am painting faster than I am posting!This was painted last night , I used a new paper- Fabriano - and I instantly liked it.The paper is costly so I have been resisting buying it for quite some time but now I am happy that I went ahead and bought it.Very good texture,good for fine work, not sure for washes-yet.This ostrich was a good practice for this paper.

A Little Out of Breath...

Things get more and more busy as we go into December.I am working on a commission Elephant, which is large-' plus have been asked to do a few pages of calendar for my sister's company.Apart form this , I have to create some new paintings to keep my online shop at Artfinder populated as I have sold a few during last month and it looks rather empty now!
Also have to deal with paperwork and research regarding the house purchase. Oh and yes, I have got my Christmas cards printed and delivered - now need to write them, address them and post them in time!But somehow all this activity is keeping me in good spirits..hope you all  are having a happily busy time,too.

Managed to sneak this little guy in, a midst all the goings on!
