6 oil paintings unfinished. I started another today. I only have the tones blocked in. It will be a sailboat. I know I’m not the only one who starts a painting, then puts it to the side and starts something new. I was thinking as I started this one, I’m going to finish this one before I start another. We will see. Lots of projects going on, not enough time, it’s always something.
My husband asked, “what is your blog about?” I told him it’s all about you! He is a kind gentle man who loves to play, work, & sleep! He will ride a horse with me because I ask. He will make a garden because his 87 year old mom asks. He’ll climb on the the roof with his grandson because he asks. He will fall asleep with his cat Bob because he can!
I try to walk each day. I used to walk the track around a soccer field. This seemed so boring & not fun at all. So I decided I would go for nature walks. I found a boardwalk that goes through the swamp. The scenery changes from day to day. Relaxing, quiet, solitude is how I can best describe it. These are a few pictures of my walk.
I found some 1906 postcards yesterday! I thought these cards were beautiful! Along with the script writing & the beautiful paintings on them I see why they were saved for over 100 years!
I think I’ll start a new canvas & try this in oils or acrylics. I just can’t seem to work oil pastels like I would like.
This is an old photograph of my grandson & his friend. An albino deer walked up & seemed intrigued by his view of 2 lovely boys. I’m going to paint this. I want to try oil pastels. But I haven’t mastered this media.
My daughter has a rescue dog named Broady. He is a quirky smart gentle giant. My daughter took a picture of him wearing her glasses. I really loved this picture so I decided to paint him. I used Richelson oils & neo meglip medium. I started art lessons about a year ago. I must say the more I paint the better I get!
I worked on Bob a little today. He is looking better although I wish it was much better. Brody the the dog is waiting on his whiskers. As soon as he dries a little I’ll add them along with his chin hairs! Continue reading
