She's ready to dance!

Or should I say, as soon as I work out how to get those legs and feet in proportion with her arms and torso, she will just take off!
I had fun doing this and am blaming the diffuculty on not having a live model...being forced to use a photo with foreshortened legs and feet.
Still it was great fun and I love it.

Foxgloves in sunshine...or Paula's chair

From a visit to friend Paula's garden one spring day...and old Adirondack chair and foxgloves galore! I love how they glow in the sunshine!
Using watercolor pencils and oil pastels.

I found this broken butterfly in my driveway.

Along with some late garden zinnias I chose my "models" for a bit of art fun. I enjoyed having a couple of September subjects to look at. My art work today is with watercolor pencils and oil pastel.

Are we having fun yet????

Studying Winifred Nicholson

I'm working on a version of "Gate to the Isles" which was painted by Nicholson in 1981.

When my book of her paintings arrives, I will finish this, and try some more!

A couple of red ribbons and feathers

Final version, with a bird becoming more dominant.

Making a couple of modifications to this 5x5 painting...

Still trying to get comfortable with acrylics....watercolor being my first love, but framing is expensive!

Let's go to Greece!

This is a 5x5 acrylic painting. I am starting to become more accustomed to acrylics again after years of watercolor. This was fun, though tedious and tiny!
