Over the River and Through the Woods...

It's Thanksgiving in just a week and I have a new painting to celebrate the coming of winter.

The painting is 16x20" painted in acrylic. I am so happy to be able to share my art with you.

I'm hoping this winter and the holidays that it brings will find you warm, with enough to eat and people you care about and who care about you. I know I"ll be saying this many more times as the coming weeks pass. :)

I hope you enjoy this painting - Over the River and Through the Woods...

Winter Robin

I love Robins! They are small, cute and a sweet reminder of the promise of spring to come. I did this painting based partly on a phot from Paint My Photo and free photography resource for artists.

This painting was done on a 10x10" canvas in acrylic paint.

It will probably end up as a holiday gift this year. :) Who knows who will end up with it? I don't even know yet!

Thanks for stopping by! Remember to get out and do something creative! If you have a chance please leave a comment and let me know that you were here. :)

Autumn Birch

My Newest painting inspired by Cinnamon Cooney the Art Sherpa on YouTube The Autumn Birch tree.

I love the colors and the angle that she chose to paint and that she shares the step by step on how to accomplish it.

This is my version of her tree. As an artist we can be inspired and we can follow directions when we have to, but gee, it's even more fun when you start finding your oven voice in the artistic choir!

I hope you have a glorious day and get out and do something creative!

Painting on Leaves

After viewing a live class by Cinnamon Cooney on painting Pumpkins on Leaves I wanted to try it out. I decided that I wanted to have leaves that would last longer so I grabbed a few real leaves and traced them on to brown kraft paper, cut them out. Then I coated them with a Fluid Mat Medium to seal the paper to make it ready for painting on with acrylic paints.

I have now finished 3 different ones. 2 were based on art from the online classes:

The 3 Pumpkins Leaf

The Cardinal and the Snowman.

The Third leaf was done from a photograph I found on Paint My Photo. A free photo resource for artists.

To say that I'm having a blast would be an understatement! I am totally enjoying myself and am looking forward to finding new subjects to paint on a leaf!

I hope you are getting out and doing something creative!

Is it too early???

Catbat from a class by Cinnamon Cooney. My Catbat and soot sprites  are already getting out the holiday lights! This was a fun little acrylic painting done on a canvas panel board.

Getting ready for the holiday season seems to start earlier each year! But when you are making gifts for friends and family you have to start early!

I hope you are getting out and doing something creative every day. Please leave a comment and let me know you were here! I appreciate every comment. :)
