More Portraits

 I enjoy doing portraits, even though I know nobody wants them hanging on their walls!
The cowgirl and forest ranger were in Wyoming, and the young girl was at a demo that I was doing several years ago, and she allowed me to take her photo.

New Work

I have been working pretty hard trying to improve on my painting. I wish it wouldn't take so long! I have so much to learn.
I started an 8 week  online class  with Laurie Goldstein Warren and have enjoyed it a lot.
 We have 2 online demos a week and once a week a zoom meeting. We are using liquid watercolors or acrylic. Our choice.  All of these are watercolor.  If you paint or want to learn, she is an awesome teacher, mentor and friend.

The Church sold and that is exciting when someone likes your work enough to pay for it!  I will be selling all of these for the same price. They are big. They will frame out about 22x28 or 30x32 'ish'.

A little Birdie Told Me

This is our daughter when she was 6-7 years old. I have had this photo for a long time. I always loved it, because she is such a caring 'take care of' person. She was then and is still that way. They found this little bird in the yard and she was so careful in holding it, and wanting to take care of it. It is funny that I remember that day, and I remember her little blue summer outfit.  Maybe that's why we take so many photos, to help us remember. I regret that we didn't have a good camera 'back then'.  Families are so lucky now.  They can take a photo every day. What a blessing.

Experimeting

This exercise was using 2 colors.  Black and  another color.  You take your photo and posterize it in adobe or an app on your phone. It helps you see the values. (dark and light)
