I have entered painting of Bob in the Dick Blick pet portrait contest. Unfortunately Bob moved to cat heaven and we miss him dearly. He was the neighborhood cat. I painted his picture and I know this might sound a little strange but he actually was happy that I was painting his portrait. He was always checking the progression of this painting & when he it was finished he would sit, admire it. This is the link to vote Entry Photo

I have to confess I ate the icecream cone quicker than I painted it. I wanted to try out my Chelsea lean medium with my Lukas Berlin mixable oils. Thins them well & smells great! I have to give this medium a thumbs up!
After changing this painting 4 or 5 times the paint is getting thicker & drying time is slow. I’m going to have to call this one finished. I’m ready to move on to a different painting project. This is my grand kids @ the beach. My daughter says she loves it. I’m not sure if she’s just being nice or I’m too critical. I have noticed my painting is improving which is a good thing. I think I’ll try a few more studies before I try it on my own again.
I bought this antique child’s chair for very little. I guess I have “the artist eyes”. “Diamond in the rough”. I finally finished it. I had to prove to my husband I could finish this project in less than a month. Only 9 days to finish! Now to finish all of my oil paintings.
I started out wanting to paint my granddaughter & dog playing in a puddle in the rain. I couldn’t paint it to my satisfaction. So digging through photos I decided to paint the grandkids on the beach. Now to put those kids in.
I bought this very old Victorian child’s rocker. My goal it to make it beautiful again. 100’s of tacks & staples removed. Another layer to go through. It’s not going to be a little more difficult than expected. I do have a book that is very informative. I have 2 oil painting in the works.
Another picture I would like to paint. I took this one about 30 minutes ago while on my daily walk. I’m glad it didn’t chase me. There is a gator den with a fierce mother alligator who growls at me when I walk by. I don’t stop for photos of her because she has told me “do not disturb”
I don’t like where I’m going. I guess I need to just go with it. Any ideas? I have much to learn. Seems like the size, seen not going as i planned. How do you do it? I can copy others work with no problem. What I need is to understand placement, proportion, for making my own seen using many photos.
