|Chris found a photo of a man and his camel on NPR. I guess in Turkey they have camel fighting. He thought it was hilarious and asked me to do a painting of it. I wish Harold was here to take a better picture of it, I can't seem to get the lighting right, the painting looks better than my photo of it. Chris thought the camel and the man poising was pretty funny. |
I seem to be doing more acrylics lately, I really want to do watercolor, but my pea brain is having a terrible time jumping back and forth, I guess it is good for me, who would have thought painting would take so much thought.
|This is a painting I did of one of Cassandra Barney's paintings . She is my very favorite artist ever, she is a good friend of my brother and sister law, so we have met her and have several pieces of her work in our home. She also spent a day working with Paul teaching him how to paint mangos. I am her # 1 fan. Steve said I am her # 1stalker. I love her and her work, and follow her blog, maybe I am a stalker! Her work always makes me smile.|
|I can't believe I am downloading this painting all by myself! Harold is working in St. George and he walked me thru all the steps (about 20) . This is a real accomplishment for me!|
This is a painting I did of a photo from a calendar that Andy gave us. I loved the lighting, it took me three times painting the lake to get it how I wanted it, but I am happy with it now. I ended up hanging this in the living room.
|This is a painting I did of one of Winston Churchill's paintings. The information on this painting said - The Blue Room, Trent Park, the home of the late Sir Philip Sassoon. Exhibited at the Royal Academy, 1948-.|
Now to read Painting as a Pastime by Winston Churchill. Thanks dad for sharing this with me. I did this tonight in my watercolor class. When I look at this painting I feel like drinking tea and eating dainty biscuits.
