Just finished a hummingbird painting in watercolor. At the moment, I have 14 paintings to take to the framer.
I recently finished a series of paintings of butterflies. I painted them with pins in them. My plan is to frame them in shadow boxes as if they were “real” collected butterflies. Here are a few from the series of 13 that I painted:
We all paint the same painting in order to learn from each other. I usually choose a different flower once a year. Painting the same thing over and over, in my case, means the paintings get better and better. At the end of a year I have to change to something else because I start getting bored with doing the same thing over and over. I think both women did a wonderful job!
I just finished this painting on Monday. Unfortunately, my camera doesn’t seem to be working so used my cell phone to take this picture. It’s not so great. Anyway, here is it. At the moment, it has a very simple name until I can think of something more clever. “Yellow Roses”, oil on canvas, 3′ x 4′ x 2″.
I just finished this painting on Friday. It is oil on canvas, 3′ x 4′. I definitely need to come up with a better title than “pink roses”! My problem with titles is that I don’t like literary titles (a rose is a rose is a rose) or obscure titles (The Belgian Encounter) or sexual (Velvet Embrace). I usually stick with the simple title. I will report back after I have decided…
This is Potter. What a cute dog! I sure hope the client liked it. I don’t know because I haven’t heard back, yet…
I just finished the background on my current painting. You can see the under painting (flat pink wash and more detailed wash on leaves and glass jar). I am currently working on the rose petals. It is fairly large at 3 feet by 4 feet.
