Tooting Underwater

Hello Everyone!

Hope you all had a chance to enjoy your weekend.  This week is going to be so darn busy, that I took the opportunity to do a quick blog post now and use the rest of the week to prepare for the BIG BLOG HOP SHINDIG that starts on Friday!

What Shindig you ask?
Take a look over there...see the button?

Amy is hosting All Together Now.  A wonderful opportunity to share what you do with everyone, and when I say share, I really mean shout from the rafters why it's awesome, why you're great and enthusiastically offer a sampling of your bodacious talents to those who visit!!  It's true!  Those are the rules :D

Please go check it out and join us for 3 fun-filled days of tooting (our own horns that is...whatever you do in private is up to you....heehee).  Hope to find you among the revelers!!

Now, on to today's post!
The theme over at Butterfly this week is Underwater.  I just so happened to have 2 unfinished paintings waiting for this little push.

They are both 5 x 7 inches on canvas panels.
This is "White Knight"


I didn't think it would be as difficult as it was to paint a white seahorse.  The challenge was to add details, some color and even a pattern to him...all while still keeping him coming across as white :)


This next one is called "Safe Haven".


I've always liked these little guys :)


They are both available in my shop if you'd like to take a looksie.

I have to run to pick up Maggie from school now...  
I'm sorry all my Drawing Lab people...I know I'm seriously underwater in my Lesson obligations, too....it is on my list!

Have a great week and hope to see you at the shindig!
Here's to tooting big toots! ;P

I love this title almost as much as I love the soothing colors of you piece. It makes me want to swim...

I had to show the "Tooting Underwater" title to the Little Princess. She is six, so of course she is obsessed with toots.

Two of my favorite subjects. I love both of them. Happy Weekend and thank you so much for your recent visit. Kelley

Love the underwater theme Cam! I too had been struggling with white things, but you conveyed it so beautifully with the shading! I am having a tough time with the house from Practical Magic still, because it's a house and all... and it's meant to be such a bright white!

Your seahorse is beyond beautiful! You did a fabulous job creating detail to him. I just adore seahorses - such fragile yet beautiful creatures. And clown fish are so sweet, too. You really made them come to life!
