"Profile of a Peacock" (pastel, 12x6 inches) click here to bid or buy

All right, I managed to get one more sunlit animal painting in before the barrage of portrait orders buries me by Christmas.

Speaking of which, I'd like to mention I'll be back at the Showcase of Arts and Crafts, a fine craft show at Rolling Oaks Mall in San Antonio, Texas, From Dec 7 through Christmas Eve, drawing portraits and caricatures from life and from client photos. There's still time to get your order in for Christmas, but don't wait!


Come by the mall (upstairs near the food court) and see me, or order online at RitaKirkmanDrawings.com.

November 2018 Daily Paintings Poster

I did it! What a month! November has been good to me for the last several years. I think this is my 5th or 6th "30-in-30", usually in November, as it happens. This poster has 29 images; I chose to leave off the pencil portrait from last Wednesday.

I might be ordering some actual print posters of these if I get inquiries, they will be 18x24, and $25 with free shipping in the US. :)

Some of these paintings are still available, and some of them are still on auction at DailyPaintworks! (Still in time for a unique Christmas gift!)

This month I'll be dedicated to more portrait commissions. I might post some if I can do it without spoiling anyone's surprise.

Thanks for following along with me on my Daily Painting journey last month! Have a wonderful Holiday Shopping and Visiting Season!

Day 25 of my 30 Paintings in 30 Days of November!

This young bull calf really did have freckles!

I've re-used the name from another "Freckles" cow of seven years ago:
"Freckles" (pastel, 7x5, 2011) sold
Wow! I so rarely look back; it's interesting to see how my work has evolved over the years!

Some progress shots of this year's Freckles:

"Swan" (pastel, 5x5 inches) click here to bid or buy (coming soon)

Day 24 of my 30 Paintings in 30 Days of November!

This swan was grooming herself by the edge of a path, on a zoo visit last year. Burst mode on a camera comes in very handy! I was able to catch a lovely swan s-pose!

Day 23 of my 30 Paintings in 30 Days of November!

I saw this ewe on one of my last trips. I hadn't seen such a lovely black face pattern. She looks like she's wearing a woolly hoodie.
