Apologies to everyone that is following my blogs. I had a death in the family that has prevented me to paint and post. But, that is behind me. Today I am going to do what a dear friend has recommended to me....paint with limited colors on my pallet so that I can learn the scope of each individual color and what it can do when mixed with others. That said, I will be using primary's and white only. Yep!! Red, Blue, Yellow and White ONLY!! Not even black. Now that is a tad scary. I am so looking forward to my lessons!!  Stay tuned.

Life is an adventure! Life is a journey! Life is always moving!! There are good days and there are bad days. Such as in art, too. I have been spending some time in watercolors and have decided that it is not my strength. I even went to the library and picked up some books on how to use watercolors. Well, I believe that oils are my best working medium. HHHMM....guess it is time to stretch up a canvas or two, invest in some small canvas panels and get to using the medium that I am best in and seem to be happier with the finished product. Look for some new posts first thing in the morning!!  Be Blessed

Birch Trees

The great thing about art, is that you can create anything you want and it is ok. "Birch Trees" were just that. Using the memories in my head and painting on some paper. Watercolors are not a medium that I am particularly good at, but practice makes perfect!! And I had a great deal of fun doing this 8x10 this afternoon. Hope you like it.

A quick study of distance, shading and highlighting. Painting in acrylic on a Premium Artist Canvas board. 9x12


This is my first project on my Daily Paintings that I signed up for yesterday. It was to be about anything that had to do with under things. Panties, Bras, boxers, briefs, all those things under our clothing. The painting is on a 11x14 Premium Artist Canvas Panel. $75.00

Fun in the Sun

"Fun in the sun" is painted on a 9x12 Premium Artist Canvas Panel. This is my first attempt at a black and white painting. Using only two colors on an entire painting was fun, scary and definitely a learning experience. I will do another B&W real soon. $85.00
