Meeting Chester the cat … After getting outside my comfort zone.



Take whatever measure is necessary to impulse yourself and improve your art …even if it means getting out of your comfort zone.


When it comes on creating art … I am the peculiar lonely wolf as  I like and enjoy the solitude of my art studio.


A few artist colleagues faithfully gather for painting nights during the week; they been doing this for quite some years now; the invitation to join them has been open every time … and every time for years  I will find a singular excuse to sabotage my creative self by not attending.


 This year I decided to join them, Its a serious New Year resolution  I  had been postponed for quite a while. This year I decided its time; regardless the busy schedule, the art classes and workshops, family commitments, and pet clients. 

Harsh as might sound, the commitment is only to myself and how far I want to take it will be upon me.


And in the midst of all this and now my weekly painting time gatherings is where “Chester” the black cat was born this January 2018 on watercolor paper 140 lbs. Size 6”x9”.

Chester as he is now title,  kept popping out on my watercolor paper every time I tried to sketch something else; I follow the flow instead and decided to just follow the contours of his silhouette and his face soon began to reveal itself as the watercolor painting ran thru the  paper fibers.


Painting  freely …for oneself is not as easy as appears for an adult, I found more dynamic the fact to work on an art project deadline, art class curriculum or  a commissioned art project. Painting for oneself as an artist  which freely allows  to express feelings, ideas and thoughts on a canvas is invigorating and it’s also a healing process.


 Sitting in front of that white canvas or white  piece of watercolor paper its torture at times but it can be endured. 

As long as I  open my eyes to enjoy a new rising sun every morning, I will take the gift and  … will keep trying.

Palette Knife Painting for sale Sulcata Tortoise Original Painting

December 11, 2017

There is quite a few words in English that for some reason my tongue doesn’t seem to manage  the pronunciation, but working in the animal field particularly with exotic animal years back  in my young days I often got teased in a good way by coworkers and now long time friends by this primary  words which surprisingly were use so often if not almost on daily  basis … Canary, hippopotamus, turtle and tortoise.


  Well let me tell you after living in the   USA and being this country  my adopted  home for  almost 3 decades I still can’t manage  to say this words  propertly … some things never change with age.

 But I love painting and today’s painting was of a Sulcata  Tortoise.


As an  annual Carnival is organized by incredible group of ladies and members of a Booster Club  at my son’s school and there is always fun surprises and games for the students, they go above and beyond on this school  annual carnival. Last year they invited a reptile presentator, he had all kinds of critters and reptilians  to show the kids and some of this rare looking critters were allowed to be  petted.


A huge Sulcata Tortoise was wandering at her own leisure … free with supervision and  engorging herself  on the dandelions flowers while the exhibit was on; (this is  were the title for this sulcata  tortoise  palette knife painting got inspired)


 It was so much fun to see the students petting this incredible large moving “rock”  and being so gentle with this ancient giant …Oh yes!  you bid I had to tickle those   funny looking tortoise feet …Life is good!

The Inspiration today …Dolphin Encounter at Blue lagoon palette knife Painting


Blue dolphin acrylic Pallet Knife Painting


The first words of  expression that comes to my mind when thinking or seeing  a dolphin are joy, happiness and playfulness.  This  lovely and  Incredible intelligent critters had been the ambassadors of our oceans longer that we could ever perceive; and even that  planet earth counts with  40 extant species of dolphins;  just the bottle nose dolphins had been in our planet about 15 million years!


If you still haven’t had the opportunity to swim with the dolphins please pencil it    on your list  as New year resolution or bucket list. You definitely can’t plan leaving this wonderful planet without living the experience.


Years back I had the opportunity to hug and play with one of this amazing critters at Dolphin encounters at Blue  lagoon Island in Nassau Bahamas.


 Judge with your own words as I share some of the pictures from that trip.

 We stayed at the  Incredible Paradise Island Hotel back then, the whole amazing trip is a golden memory to treasure.


I decided to bring back that on my canvas with my Pallet knife technique. Enjoy!

Pallet Knife Painting a new beginning

December 5, 2017

Ooh la la, a nice set of knives and not necessarily

for food preparation. 

Inspired by one of our monthly art demonstrators Melody Brunsting who performed at Temecula Valley Art League ... This will be my new intent  and  try to paint with pallet knife and finish one full art painting.


The first time I was introduced to pallet knife painting years back  didn’t go too well or as expected .. the idea of painting with something that look so closed to a butter knife was not fun at all back then.


But now I finally decided to jump off the cliff and out out my comfort zone... after all what else can happen as its just paint on canvas. Ready, Set ... Go!!!

New York New York vegas Casino Watercolor Painting by Ines Miller

This is an inspired painting from one of my trips to Vegas Nevada, as the  view from our room at  MGM Grand  Hotel pointed directly to the New York New York Hotel and its red roller coaster; I couldn’t resist the impulse to  paint it as I was able to heard all the way across to our room the fun screams and rumbling from the rollercoaster ride.
