Day 25-Quilt and Tulips

Quilt and Tulips
6x6 Oil on Gessobord
$100+$8 shipping

Tulips and Petunias are my favorite flowers, and I have done several tulips with quilt paintings. This is the first Oil. In the photo they were orange and Yellow, but I just couldn't pull that off! Maybe because the under painting was orange, and it was hard to see, so I just went with the red.
Only 5 more days in the challenge. It definitely has been a challenge! Working with Oil paint is so foreign to me, not to mention so messy!

Day 24- White Cosmos

White Cosmos
6x6 Oil on Gessobord
$100+$8 shipping
Day 24! One more week! It has gone pretty fast, but has become increasingly hard to come up with something exciting to paint every single day. I tried to get photos ahead so I wouldn't have to search.
I got photos of these white cosmos in Seattle, and of course I didn't do it justice.  Flowers are my least favorite thing to paint, but I need to do more.

Day 23-30 day challenge-Bottom's Up

While in Wyomimg we found this little lake outside Jackson Hole, and there were so many ducks upside down treading water! So cute. Splashing like crazy. I had never seen ducks doing this before.
That's what happens when you live in West Texas! I was told they were eating, but I don't know how they could eat upside down!

Day 22-Swan 2

Swan 2
6x6 Oil on gessobord
$100 + Shipping
Another swan painting...had problems with a name! Usually I can name them before they are even painted. This was another photo from Wyoming.  The water was so pretty there, clear, and sparkling clean. (or it looked like it!)

Red Bike
6x6 Oil on gessobord

Anybody that knows me knows I love bikes! I love to ride, but haven't in a very long time...since I don't have one. Plus there is no place to ride around the farm. I take photos of them everywhere we go! I have done some in watercolor as well as bike collages.

Day 20- Lunch

6x6 Oil on gessobord
$100+$8 shipping
Another Buffalo Close up.  Three are probably enough, but who knows? I may find another photo that I like! It has become another challenge to keep finding stuff. Thank goodness these are small.
I am getting a little faster.  I am also working on a big collage, that is nearly finished too.

Day 19-Swan

6x6 oil on gessobord
$100+$8 Shipping
When we were in Wyoming, on one of our daily searches for photo ops, we found these beautiful swans.  There is no way I can do it justice, but here he is anyway.  There was a pair, but for the 6x6 I just put the one.  They are so graceful and so pretty! I couldn't think of a name for this! Normally I don't have a problem.

At the Fair

I was acceptd into the New Mexico watercolor society show again this year. It will be in Las Cruces NM instead of Albuquerque NM The theme ...
