Having fun with COLOR!!!!


Good thing that I am not afraid of color!  What fun pieces to do.  For the top one I got to dig out my ancient oil pastels and go to town.  I am definitely going to do more of these.

I have a Renoir challenge coming up and I think I am going to do a contemporary party scene somewhat in the styles of these two pieces.  A big piece!  Now all I have to do is find a party to go to and take pictures.  In my small little town that may be a challenge...hmmmm, must throw party myself- great a picture of a bunch of old people!  Squash that idea...

"My Journey, My Way"

My Journey, My Way
This is a bit different than the usual but it was a class challenge.  I really like it.  Having the softness of an impressionistic style creates a somewhat unreal atmosphere that I like.

It is 30x36 I think, so it is a good size piece.  Think I want to hang it in my house for a, to find a place, therein lies the problem...hey, there are worse

The Gift of Life

The is just a 'thankful piece', rejoicing in being on this planet, with it's resources, and living our roles in this lifetime.  Somewhat sweet but I like it.

Separated Families

"With Regrets"
One would have to be very hard-hearted to not feel for the families that have been separated from their children during this immigration fiasco.  What a mess!  I know there are many sides to all issues but I can not help but empathize with the mothers and fathers that do not know where their children are.  I try not to be political but sometimes it just seeps out from my heart.

A Pat on the Back!!!

BEST OF SHOW!  This was specifically done for a themed show at the Athens Living Heritage Museum.  The show's theme was 'Rural Life Reflections", and I was awarded best of show and felt very honored.  The title of the piece is, "Rural America 2018".

Of course, this is my painting style but the genre was definitely not.  It is good to step outside of my own box and stretch a little.  Won a little cash, a ribbon, and all is good.

Meanwhile, going to the art store today and will get some new larger canvases...back to work...Blessings
