Sailor's Sun

I know that winter is here and that I should be painting about snow, but my mind went to the beauty of the summer sun! Then I started with some lily pads and then I thought about a lone sailor sailing into the sun. And this is the end result! Enjoy!

Butterfly - SOLD

When we think of butterflies we think of a fragile creature. Though I think of a bold creature. To even get out of it's cocoon  it has to fight it's way out of the shell. But without this struggle, it would never be able to fly. I love to look at the gracefulness  the beauty, the wonder of a butterfly. They are so unique in all they are!! Enjoy this ACEO (2.5" x 3.5") card.

Still Life of water and flowers

This picture is a little hard to comprehend, at least I think it is. It is actually a glass of water with a two stems of flowers hanging out of it. I have developed a fascination with black and white. I will try to spend more time on this to figure out how to make it more obvious. My goal at this time is that I post to my blog daily. Leave a comment for me if you have any suggestions on how to make the picture more evident.

Vino -- SOLD

"Vino" ....Need I say more? Who doesn't love a glass of wine? I have never done glass in a painting. I believe that  I will improve on in the technic but I thought this first attempt was pretty good. I almost didn't do this painting because I sometimes feel that a glass of wine, grapes and wine bottles are sort of over done, but I did it anyway!! This is an oil painting on ACEO trading card stock (2.5" x 3.5"). $5.00.

Majestic Flight

Majestic Flight is another of the Artist Trading Card (2.5" x 3.5") paintings that I chose to do. These little cards are SO much fun to paint! Here is an eagle at flight. This painting is done with using only Red, Blue, Yellow and White just as I said I would. Learning to mix colors is educational.

Sky Line

This was a fun Daily Challenge about the sky. I chose to try a new "canvas" by using Artist Trading Cards. I found these while I was exploring the store. They are 2.5 x 3.5". I felt like this was a good size since I want to focus on a painting a day. I think that I am going to make a few sets and then mat them together in a frame.   $10
