This is a very stylized painting. I love to play with the colors in the sky and clouds. I meant to put in more fluffy clouds, but it didn't happen. I had a great time with this painting, and would love to still be working on it.
This boy is the child of one of my good friends. He's two, and just as cute and smart as can be.

His birthday was March 15th, but I wasn't able to visit him until this month, so I waited until the painting was delivered before posting it. I like secrets and surprises. This was his "Golden" birthday; 15 on the 15th, so it was special.
My photo is a bit fuzzy, since photography is not my strong suit.

There wasn't much time between when I discovered the Alliance group, joined, and found out how to enter. I did manage to mat and frame this and enter it today, though.
I think the artist reception will be fun on Saturday night, whether or not my pieces are accepted for exhibit.
This is an 11 x 14 inch watercolor of flowers in my purple glass pitcher, with the 2011 headband from New Year's Eve. It is matted and framed to approximately 17 x 20 inches on the outside edge of the frame.

It's an 8 x 11 watercolor on Arches 140 pound watercolor paper. It could be cropped to an 8 x 10.
My photo has shadows in it. The background is actually one solid color. A photographer I'm not.

The next morning, we ate my model, and it was delicious.

Amber was gone all day with him, seeing him off, so I stayed home and painted the uniform. It's on an 8 x 10 gallery wrapped canvas. I am giving it to them.

It is an 8 x 10 drawing on 140 pound Arches watercolor paper, with watercolor pencils. It really deserves to be an acrylic painting, to bring out the warm colors and gloss of the wood. Maybe I will do that on another day, when I have more time. This is a 2 1/2 hour effort.

My project for January 23rd, is a generic profile with a Bradford Pear Tree leaf. The leaf was brittle, so it cracked, but I definitely know I will do this again with fresh leaves in the future.

It is an 8 x 10 acrylic on canvas board.
I decided to try my hand at it. This is done with watercolors on 140# paper. It's about 5 x 11 inches.

This is a fragrance or aromatic wick and candle tray. I just did this as we watched Kathy Bates newest TV show.
I took some awesome shots on the road yesterday, but my camera battery died, so I couldn't do those....maybe later.
