A Little Late but Still White!

I'm goofing off for a few more days, It's snowing!  All I have with me at my house sitting job are some color pencils and a small pad. I'll come up with something a little later. Subject to interpretations will just have to wait till this stuff melts..

An Old Painting of Lisa

     I still own this painting, I really doubt the subject will ever buy it as her husband took an image from my website sometime a go and framed it for his office.  I have to say I'm glad I still have it. She has been hanging in my living room for the last couple months.  I took slides of it and it was accepted into a juried show juried by Claudia Nice. It was one of the 3 images used to be juried into the Watercolor Society of Oregon.  It's a keeper now..There have been times when a painting went out the door to be framed and then off to the show. I know we do this to sell our work but when they sell so quickly I feel just a little tinge of loss.  Do you ever feel this way?

A Little Abstract Slide Show

I have done a few abstract things in my sketchbook to warm up on occasion but I always have kept them to myself. Thought I would create a little slide show of a few of this weeks.  I have turned them all from the original direction they were painted.  Some are better than others.  Just another way to think about value arrangement; some people might have another way of doing it, this is just my process.
