Kissed Frankie Goodnight
watercolor by Mary Stebbins Taitt
for my book

They partied for days, weeks, months and years;

the sound of their laughter filled everyone’s ears.

They partied ‘til the moon came up in the sky

and then all creatures kissed Frankie goodbye.


I painted this with watercolors, finishing it (after many days of work), on 8/21/14 and today, I added the moon in Photoshop.   It is for the book I am working on for my grandson hopefully for his birthday, otherwise for Christmas.  He will be four years old on his birthday, and has just started school.

I posted it before, but I think this is the finished version (I hope).

Keith with Potato Chips

Keith with Potato Chips
I made this on my new Surface Pro in Artrage

Then I printed it, and painted over almost the entire thing with acrylics

The second one I am including in Ballookey's pocket.

I am still working on two other pieces.  I will maybe try scanning them later today.

I am looking at these two paintings and I see things I like in the original and may do more work on the acrylic.  Oops, thought I was finished.

Companion IV; Sketchbook Project

Companion IV
by Mary Stebbins Taitt
5 x 5, colored pencils (and a tiny bit of micron pen)
This is my friend's cat.  The friend and cat prefer to remain anonymous. Unfortunately, the drawing on the previous page shows through, to some extent (too much to make me happy.)

Next time, I am going to take the book apart and replace the paper.

It's funny to see this so big on here, because the original drawing is only 5 x 7.

At the Coney Monday, January, 2012

At The Coney on Monday, January, 2012
by Mary Stebbins Taitt
Portrait of Graham and Kristina at the Coney Island, Mack and Moross, by Mary Stebbins Taitt, artrage digital painting from SCRATCH (no photos were damaged or abused [or even used] in the making of this art piece.)   The likenesses are BAD, because I'm not that good with likenesses anyway and they got up and left before I finished (drawn from life).
