New Interior



Here is another Steering Wheel painting. I love looking in these old vehicles. I have a couple more that I plan on painting. This was an old car that I found at the Fort Worth Stockyards.
The Red and White interior really grabbed my attention, so naturally I had to take pictures while nobody was around. This is transparent watercolors with a little bit of white gouache.
The image size is 14x18.

Summer Fence

Last year while driving around in Myrtle Beach, we found a house with this beautiful fence covered with flowers. This is 9x12 Acrylic, but am not sure about the acrylics yet. They are messy, and you have to keep putting them out, and I had it all over me! I still love the transparent Watercolors and the collages. I really love oil paintings where all the brush strokes show, and so that is why I was trying the acrylic. I am allergic to Oil paint.

Orange Umbrella




This acrylic is on a 9x12 canvas. It was my first torn paper collage and did not like it. I painted over it with acrylic and put it up for a year, and then got it down to do this painting on, so there is a lot of texture behind the paint. All the umbrellas and chairs where we were were all blue, but with blue sky, blue water, etc. the chair had to be a different color. I have been thinking about going back and putting a green or yellow towel hanging off the chair or the life guard stand. I still need something a lot bigger for my bathroom, so back to the drawing board tomorrow.
I also have some umbrellas and chairs that are multicolored, so that will probably be next.
