Barn, Truck, Trees

WOW, is this ever bright.  I painted the whole canvas alizarin crimson, not thinking it was so bright. But i love the primary colors in this.  I only used 3 colors plus white and a little Van Dyke Brown.  WOW .. I find it hard to sign my name with acrylic paint.. maybe i need new brushes..  i actually used a pencil, dipped in the paint.. Geez...

Yellow-Orange Chair

I bought some stretched canvases and thought i'd better get out the Acrylic paints and do some paintin'....I have painted these flowers from our yard b/4 and i've painted our lawn chairs before, but for some reason, it took me many days to get this done.  Changed colors often but do like the results.

"Left out in the Cold"

Call it a coincidence, but I painted these ladies yesterday ( Women's Day??).  I had them sketched in my trusty sketch book for awhile.  I felt for them, for some reason,  mostly because yesterday was a really cold windy day and also, there was news in paper and radio about women (and others) being kinda left behind.
I love my title.  I often have titles b/4 I have paintings..

"I Need A Yellow Dress"

I found this sketch in my sketch book, not sure when or where i got the idea..  I enjoy doing the window reflect thing.  I wanted the shoppers to look rather drab and the dresses to shine.  I, of course, love painting brick for some odd reason.  T'is watercolor.

More leaves

Leaves i picked up in Tualatin, Oregon, as i walked about the neighborhood and didn't take the dog (Sophie) with me.  Does that make me a bad person?????

They made me walk...

When I got to Oregon in Nov, the leaves were so beautiful and colorful.. i picked them up, brought them to Wade's house, then painted them, sort of. Wow
