This one is a real challege...

This is one of those paintings that is problematic. I thought it was going to be pretty straight forward but the background and color balance are really hard to get right. So... back to the easel.

Recent drawings

These sketches were done during a recent artists retreat with my art buddies. It's a magical place and wonderful opportunity to be with wonderful people.

Full into Fall

The bakers scale and gas can paintings are finished! I love the feeling of finishing a piece, satisfaction (hopefully) and the excitment of setting up new scenes.

So close to finished!!! The ARC competition deadline is October 31st, the goal is to get the gas can and bakers scale paintings finished and entered on time. I'm having such fun with these paintings, their utilitarian beauty is fantastic.

On the easel...

The late summer flower painting is 90% there. I need to work the background a little more and the leaves need more definition. The bakers scale is at about 75% there. Still lots of work on the scale itself. The other two painting were just begun this week so they are in the beginning stages. I'm having a lot of fun with all of these because the colors palettes are my favorite. Fall colors are gorgeous!
