Owls,reindeer,sheep...What next?


Reindeer and Christmas Owl
Reindeer and Christmas Owl, painting by Delilah Smith
About This Painting: One thing leads to another when I start painting. Last week I painted an owl. He was a cute chubby little guy.


I liked the way the whimsical little guy turned out so I thought I should do a few more: So I then painted a small aceo owl only 3.5 x 2.5, I played around with the look of the feathers.


I liked the way it's feathers had a fluffy look to them  and I think I will try to get this feel in a larger work but something about the branch got me thinking about reindeer( a little ADCD) . I forgot about the feathers for the moment  and wanting to start to think Reindeer. I wanted a few Christmas paintings and that lead me to the Reindeer and the Christmas Owl.
And because I was up all night painting I started thinking about being a Night owl and how I need friends that were night owls also which turned into this painting:


The above paintings are available at my Ebay Store.

Feel free to contact me with any questions. If your a night owl like me even better. This is why it's a good idea to keep painting and see how one idea leads to another.

Baby Snail Watercolor painting

Baby Snail
9x12
Watercolor
I started this painting about two weeks ago and I have been working on it a little everyday since then.It finally came to fruition last nigh and I was ready to find a mushroom and fall asleep also. 

I had started with just the idea of the little baby face for a snail, then I added the candy cane like shell. After I had that worked on I realized the snail was not large enough to stand alone and need an environment to live in, I painted a few mushrooms and after letting it sit for a day or two add a few more. It still didn't feel right so I put the baby on a grassy knoll.

The painting is available at my ebay store Delilah's Art for $40.00

Cow Watercolor Art


Brown Cow
Brown Cow, painting by Delilah Smith
About This Painting: I am back on the farm again today painting away. I always wonder when I was a kid how cows could walk with such big tummies?

I still have not finished my large oil painting of a cow that I started for ArtPrize. When I found out I could  not get a venue to sponsor me I gave up on it. I will get back to painting it again soon. I just lost my motivation for awhile. 

When I went to ArtPrize this year and I saw all the empty space that some venues had I just didn't understand why so many artist were turned away?

As artist we must stay focused and motivated. I haven't stop painting, I just lost the desire to work on the big cow. I think I will finish it and take it to Ann Arbor art fair next year. I have been asked backed. Normally I would not take something that large to a street show, but what the heck it would be fun to see the reactions.Maybe i will be the year of the cow..
