Green Bag

I started packing this bag with paper goods to recycle and thought it looked like a still life, so I set it aside to paint. Guess I can recycle it now.:) Thanks for stopping bye. (Day 2 in 30 day challenge.)

Rainy Day Pool and Pond

I'm starting a new 30 day challenge. The goal is to paint a quick, small painting a day. This wasn't as quick as I planned, but hopefully I'll get faster as I go. I could also choose subjects that aren't so complicated. This is my living room view. I just love it.

Shed View

All this junk piled up in my father's shed spoke to me. there were Rose of Sharons and Hydrangeas nearby, but the junk - tools beckoned and I heeded the call. Thanks for stopping by.

Fixin the Lawnmower

I painted this odd still life in New York while visiting my parents. My dad was trying to fix the lawn mower and I guess this stuff was part of that process. Who can tell? Maybe it was purely decorative.

What's on the Easel?

Two portraits I've been working on for a while. The top is a selfie and the other is a little girl from paint my photo. I've just started one of her sister too. The first fairy has been an incredible challenge, for some reason and I'm still not finished with it. I think the lack of strong lighting could contribute to the difficulty. At any rate, I decided to do a better underpainting for the sister. (What cute sisters!) I think the second one is called Serious Fairy. The selfie is the first one I've done in about 20 years. I must have worked on it 5 times before today and today, I just started throwing paint at it. Whatever...
