“The Christmas Dance”

Watch Natalie paint this art in 2 minutes (time lapse)

“The Christmas Dance” is part of the 2022 collection “Seasons” (of life and nature) and debuted as a featured painting in Christmas Show 2021. Paintings in this collection celebrate seasons of life (metaphorical, representational, or inspired-by-real-life scenes about milestones, rites of passage, and shared human experiences of love, aging, family, and beyond) as well as seasons of nature (literal scenes depicting autumn, summer, fall, and winter). “The Christmas Dance” represents love and relationships as they change, and how the connection becomes deeper over time. This painting will be published in the book “50 Oil Paintings Inspired by Seasons”. [due to the personal nature of this art, the artist has requested that prints of this painting are not for sale]

The paintbrushes never sleep…

New Painting – Owl

Watch me paint this art in under 2 minutes (time lapse)

Oil painting “Owl” by Natalie Buske Thomas

Another one toward my lifetime goal of One Thousand Finished Paintings! Also, there are only 5 paintings left in the 2021 collection “50 Oil Paintings Inspired by Nature“! So, I’ll be formatting the new book soon (ugh! I hate formatting!), and submitting it to start the approval process (and probably fail it the first time or two… ugh, ugh, ugh!). I’m not looking forward to formatting hell, but… it’s all worth it in the end to see the finished collection bound together. And… I can start early on 2022’s collection! Getting a jump on it is a good idea because sometimes life gets in the way and I end up with more pauses in work flow than expected. Well, anyway, that’s my progress report! Have a wonderful weekend, friends.
