Funny, curious cows. When I look at those lashes I can't help but think of butterfly kisses! I gave up trying to get a good match to the color of this painting. You will have to imagine it looks much better in person. Even if I did, monitors and screens can vary. So I will leave it be.
Soaking up through rays. I have a stack of paintings that either never got finished or just weren't showing. My goal is to go through them one by one and either re-work them or paint ivery them. Here is the first of many.
I came across this cool picture on Pixabay and tucked it away for future reference. Last week we had our first real snowfall and I couldn't wait to paint this. All those shades of white and the horses, oh my, so lovely. I can just hear the sounds of them pulling that sleigh through the snow!
After a day of painting I am glad I salvaged some of my work. I struggled with a headache all day yesterday and two different paintings were ready to be wiped clean but I left them sit and walked away. This morning I looked at my work with fresh eyes and may have saved one of them.
I forgot how much I love painting on texture. I have been priming my panels with a smooth finish for too long. Starting the new year out with the goal of enjoying texture, thick paint and looser brushwork.
Almost a full week of painting after the Holidays. Occasionally I get the request to paint another version of a painting that has already sold. So unfortunately I won't have much to show from the busy week. However I did squeeze in another original today. Ready for the weekend. We are supposed to get more snow! My youngest is hoping it will be enough for sledding. Have a great weekend friends ♡
I feel downright giddy! It's snowing! Our first real snow of the season, which is really late for us in the Midwest. I am also thrilled to be back at the easel. This marks my first painting for 2019! I have a couple projects to work on but needed to warm up first.
This painting and prints in 2 sizes are available. See below.

Wrapping up Winter Break around here. Next week the kids will be back and school. We really enjoyed being together. Time seems to slow down for 2 weeks and you forget what day it is. I am now recharged and looking forward to picking up the paint brushes in the fresh new year! Until then I am posting an oldie but a goodie :)
At 5:30 the lifeguards up and down the beach blow their whistle 3 times to signal the end of their watch. They climb down and drag the chair away from the tide and call it a day. The sun was setting on another safe day at the beach. This painting has an abstract feel with the lines created by the buildings and their shadows and the vehicles tire marks in the sand. I really enjoyed and had fun with this one!
