29 Faces Day 18

“The Guy with the Doll gets the Hook”

Wow, that tuxedo, and if you closed your eyes, you couldn’t see his lips moving. The only one surprised by the Hook was the Dummy! Wah wah…

I think this is my last one of these ‘Hook’ paintings, though I can’t be 100% positive. They have been way too much fun to paint! Tonight I am listing ALL three ACEO Original Acrylic ‘Hook’ Paintings on eBay. That is “The Tapper gets the Hook“, “The Guy with the Dog gets the Hook“, and “The Guy with the Doll gets the Hook“. The Three Day Auctions for these paintings begin at 5pm PST. I’m not going to link them to this post, but if you are interested, search Gulat on eBay…

On second thought, I’m 100% positive I WILL paint more of them! 🙂

“Irish Eyes”

Today I played around with the idea of leaving some of the background color showing through the face. This Irish beauty, with her intense gaze, is truly green to the core!

“The Guy with the Dog gets the Hook”

Another night on our little Vaudeville stage and another act that didn’t quite pan out. I know, it’s hard to believe these two aren’t Superstar material, but alas, they got the Hook…

“Barking Up the Wrong Tree”

Day 15 and still hanging in there. I’ve gotten myself on a kick of painting some cute little girls for the last couple of days. This one happens to be a country gal, perhaps a young Dolly Parton (the HAIR people LOL), barefoot in the holler. Marge, her faithful coonhound and companion, sitting beside her and barking up the wrong tree!


29 Faces Day 12.13.14


Wow! Playing a little catch up today. I spent a few days this week helping a florist friend of mine prep for Valentine’s Day. ❤ ❤ With orders filled and everything ready to go at her shop, today was my day to paint. I am glad to say, I got all three done. I am no longer in the weeds. Yay! So, I am going to spend the rest of the evening on my couch, watching TV and enjoying the company of my hubby, who also happens to be my favorite person in the whole world. Forever in love.  ❤ Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

“Fire On the Mountain”

I enjoyed finger painting this colorful background. I started by rubbing on a thick bodied gesso, and then smears of acrylic paints straight out of the tube. When it dried, I did a few black dots and some white acrylic ink lines. This crazy background called for a bold lady! I think she looks right at home…

I would like to give a nod to The Charlie Daniels Band and their song ‘The Devil Went Down to Georgia’ for the title of this painting. Every time I look at the painting I hear the line from the song that goes, “He played ‘Fire on the Mountain’ run boys run.” Nutty, but true! What can I say? 🙂
