Just Playing Today

10 x 10 on canvas board

Just playing today - had painting group and really worked on touching up other paintings most of day.  I started this about an hour before leaving and I don't know if I will go back to it.  I was trying to paint more abstractly but ended up drawing too much - we'll see!

Just Follow Me

14 x 14 oil on stretched canvas

More chickens.....had to improvise the background....because the reference photo was more green trees and I burned out on the last painting!

Lawn to Pasture Complete

18 x 24 oil on stretched canvas

I suppose this is complete.  I'm through with it whether it is or not for now.  Have I mentioned before how much I do NOT like painting grass and trees?  People, birds, animals are fun but all that green overwhelms me!  This would have been complete yesterday had I been able to easily paint that part.  I'm satisfied for now though.

Lawn to Pasture

18 x 24 oil on stretched canvas

This is after my first session on these horses that I painted on top of "On The Lawn Of The Louvre".  I never liked that painting - she looked like a female Paul Bunyan to me so I set out to eliminate her.  There are still a few traces of her in the background but I think after another session she will be completely gone.  I really enjoy painting animals and the light was hitting them just right.

Practice, Practice, Practice

11 x 14 oil on canvas board - SOLD

I have been practicing the last several sessions on architectural paintings.  I have a long way to go but this attempt looks better than the  last one - trust me!

Paris Cafe - Repeat

16 x 20 oil on mylar

Well - same reference photo and basically the same painting as Sept. 4 with a few small changes.  I wanted to try this on mylar this time instead of canvas and I made a few other changes but not many that are obvious.
