This is another one that received the finishing touches this month. The reference comes from my photographer/artist friend Juanita Witkop! This is Zero who now resides in New Mexico. Zero has been all over cruising on the sailing ship the Artic Tern. I am sure that being land locked has been an adjustment.
I think it's interesting how mother nature can produce her own sense of design. The branches framed the hawk so well. This is a reference from my cousin Theresa who should have her own website or blog.
Today was a day I was glad I invested in some teeny tiny brushes. To protect myself from eye strain, I tried not to make it too detailed. This image comes from my cousin Theresa. She takes awesome nature pics!
I am liking these little canvases. I am not sure what I am doing with them yet but I was thinking of turning them into hanging ornaments and getting them ready for a holiday show at one of the galleries...hmmm.
Its day 5 and I started this, this morning and also worked on a commission. Its the holiday weekend and lots of excitement here at the marina! No parking and got to see a boat whack into another one...oh the pain of it all! Maybe my horse series has something to do with land envy! Don't get me wrong, I do love it here!
I bought these little tiny canvases sometime ago and rediscovered them this morning. I thought this might be a good exercise in getting something done in an hour and it was! My niece Aimee is a great photographer and I owe her for this reference image.
I am in the "30 in 30" challenge this month, hosted by Leslie Saeta. This painting has kept me busy for a couple of days. I count it for day 1 and 2. The title could easily be changed to "Pale Rose; A Close Up Struggle!"
Thanks for checking in! I'll be painting everyday but probably won't post everyday. We'll see how many paintings I can complete in September while I get ready for a show and work on commissions :-).
