Germany Challenge

This was done for Carol Marine's Germany Challenge. Still working with light and dark value patterns. I've been having fun looking online at the work of various artist's, who work with dramatic lights and darks. Two women artist's, whose work I love, are Anne Ward Sures, and Maureen Gallace . Their paintings have been so inspiring! Looking forward to doing more!

Sun Kissed

"Sun Kissed" is the title of the upcoming exhibit at the Lafayette Gallery, opening May 24th. I am applying some of the ideas from Tim Horn's class to some new work for this exhibit. Still on the learning curve, and still getting comfortable. This was done from a photo taken in Santa Fe, last week.

Still More

Trying again. This is one more post from last week that failed. Things seem to be working better. The original problem with blogger, is still not solved. In the meantime, I am using an alternative posting method. Let's hope this continues to work. So happy to be able post again!
By the way, this is the same ancient phone, that I can't seem to get enough of.

Now Where Were We

Last week I began to experience technical difficulties with blogger. I tried to post many times, with no success. We'll hope for better results this time. These oranges were done for Tim Horn's class. This is the same exercise that is described in Carol Marine's, Daily Paintworks Challenges. The idea is to paint one object 8 times, allowing 10 min per image. For more info, please see the DPW website.
