New Painting – Rabbit

Watch my oil painting of a rabbit come to life in about a minute!

(time lapse)

Another new painting done! One step closer to my lifetime goal of 1k finished paintings! This is also another project done for this year’s collection. I have only 4 slots left to fill to close out 2021 with “50 Oil Paintings Inspired by Nature“! I’ll then start on the 2022 collection, another series of 50. When I have things planned out so far ahead it feels like time is racing by, as my mind is already living in 2022.

My next, and final show for 2021, is a holiday show that will debut in November. I’ve already begun work on that show and I’m so excited for Christmas because of it! If you’ve never seen my shows, they are variety acts that are performed live and then uploaded to this site. There is no editing (as in, the footage is only dressed up with titles, transitions, etc., but we are not “auto-tuned” or over rehearsed. It is mostly candid, organic in performance and style. There are no scripts or teleprompters).

I hope that you enjoy what my family and I do. I believe that there is a strong desire for authentic real voices, talent, and connection. REAL people who love each other, and share with the world what we love to do.

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.

I’m also working on my next live taping variety show which will be hosted here on this website beginning July 2. I do four shows a year, each one involves painting, surprise acts and guests. I hope you will love the next show!
