“Banks”

So, yea. I haven’t had the chance to get another 100 piece done because I’ve been painting fur! This is Banks. He was commissioned by his mom to have his adorable, yet regal, portrait done! I just have to say, fur looks easy to paint….but striped fur is crazy tedious!! Now that I’m on his…

First stumble!

Opps! Yes, this is last week’s painting! This one is the day 1 of 100 paintings piece. And no, I didn’t paint it again. This is the plight of a college instructor, that when the semester ends the grades need to be finished and tallied! Grades are due this week and I’m still grading papers!…

30 day challenge day 10

     Day 10! It has been a few days since I posted. We had a virus running amok in the house and both girls were down sick this week. Never a fun time!   We should be all better now, so it’s back to business. Our day 10 piece keeps calling me to adjust…

Purple Blazes

   Day 4! “Purple blazes” is our forth piece for our 30 day challenge. I really love how the colors blended on this one. On the previous pieces I used just one color or blend of colors (like teal from blue and green) but this time I used both a magenta and a blue separately.…
