Cormorant Art Show


What a fun weekend i had.  Good friends stopping by, getting compliments on my work, a few sales, meeting new people, spending time with fellow artists, doing a demo, eating sweets......
  I finished my demo piece yesterday. My goal was to paint a colorful still life using only 3 acrylic  pigments, plus titanium white. Primary colors, of course.
NO< THAT IS NOT A BONG!!

After the Crash

Oh Dear, back into painting old vehicles???  i found a bunch of photos of old cars that i took years ago when we drove Route 66 on our way to AZ.  Planned to put some tepees on background, since the cars were parked at the TEPEE Motel, but gee, i loved the sky as it turned out. I painted  the canvas with Red Oxide and it does wonderful things with the colors i chose to use. 

Shine On

Giggle, Giggle..
 Gallery 4's July theme show is titled "Shiny"..  i looked thru my "to paint" folder and found a photo, that i took in AZ in a gas station.   i "shined" it up a little. There will be a reception on July 11, 5 to 9, with food and drink.  Love those Gallery 4 artists.

Finch Frenzy

Another square canvas, another old odd photo used as reference, another acrylic painting.  Took it to show and tell (Thursday painting group).. only real comment was " is that bird shit on the fender?"

Garden Guard, Extraordinaire!

Using a photo i took 15 years ago for reference, i enjoyed painting this acrylic.  It is rather playful and weird, i know.  Like i said b/4, I am running out of subject matter but could probably check out what is TRENDING..   hee, hee...

Back Entry to the Greenhouse

Using another photo from years ago, i would rather paint the messy back yard than the perfectly arranged inside of the greenhouse.. weird.  This is also acrylic. This square canvas was painted diarylide yellow before creativity started..  yes... love the names of my paints.
