In a Row


6" x 12" oil on cradled board

I've been working on this one for a while. This is a smaller version of one I have planned, and will start soon. 

Playing in the Surf

They look sun baked and joyful playing in the surf! I'm still having fun with color and trying to push my limits. I just loved the cool turquoise waters at the top and red violet sand. This is also a new size for me. The sides of this cradled board will be stained a dark brown so that it can be hung as is.

In other news, we are still house hunting and getting our house ready for sale. I've finally gotten in a weekly art class that I was on the waiting list for. Yay! So I'll at least have one day put aside for painting. Thank you to everyone who still comes to visit and comment. It really means so much to me to hear from you. I will once again be commenting regularly also once things settle down here. I apologize for being so unavailable.

I need to get more practice with my portraits so tackling Einstein was just the thing for me. Thank you Nora for this DPW Challenge

I have never painted in color from a black and white photo before. I'm glad I gave that a try.
