Watercolor

I’m finally giving watercolor a try again. I watched a video tutorial by Kateri Ewing. I learned a lot. Just from a video! I’m not great but I learned control along with other techniques.

Relaxing on the Gulf of Mexico

I was asked to paint a large beach scene with stipulations! I was given a picture of someone else’s painting. It was half sky, half water, yellows and browns in sky a water. I was asked if I could paint this without the browns and yellows. My reply, “Of course I can”. I went through my beach photos and came up with this. It’s not my taste but it kind of grows on you. It looks nothing like the picture of the painting they showed me…. I think it looks much better. I hope they like it…

Kitty cat in oils

I finally finished my grandsons cat with the crooked tail. She is an absolute beauty rather tiny for age. My daughter adopted her from the pound and seems to think she’s inbred. Her eyes are deep blue but the iris is golden brown at the top. Her tail is crooked. In addition she can be very vicious. She stays mostly on the bannister waiting for someone to come upstairs so she can attack there hands. She does have very good balance.

Grand Isle 7 mile Garage sale

I will be have a art pop up sale on the island this weekend! I’m hoping I’ll do well. I’ve been working on “craft style art”. As well as small studies and cultural art. I’m getting better with acrylic paints. Ive had a lot of practice lately crafting with them. The drying time is great! But I still love my oil painting. It seems like oil paints just move at my pace (slow & smooth)! So far I’ve been able to paint about 1-3 small paintings a day with acrylics. I’ve also made some lucky horse shoe signs. In August I have to get ready for a showing at JEAN LAFITTE NATIONAL HISTORICAL PARK & PRESERVE WETLANDS ACADIAN CULTURAL CENTER.

This will be fun! I guess I’ll be trying to get some larger pieces painted for August. It’s going to be a busy summer for me. I’ve finally decided to get it together and start selling a few paintings instead of giving them all away or storing them in closets. I’ve made a Facebook page Bayou Dat Art. I’m not a sales type person. I’m trying to learn although it’s out of my comfort zone with a little practice I’ll learn to sell and market.

Blue Herron

I had fun painting this blue Herron on the beach. Painting for a show in August at Jean Lefitte museum. The theme is everything cajun. The beautiful birds and fishing that are abundant in our coastal, & marsh community. I’m painting on old rough cut cypress that I salvaged from and old restaurant they were tearing down.

Red Snapper

I salvaged some old rough cut cypress from an old diner. I had know idea what to do with these planks. They kind of looked like a fish cleaning board. Funny how ideas pop in your head. I had fun with oil paint! I thought it turn out lovely.

Jack rabbit

Still painting with acrylic paints. I’m figuring out how to glaze and layer. I’m feeling a little more confident painting with them. I really prefer my oils. Getting ready for Easter.
