Can  you believe it? We are nearly at the half point. Woo Whoo! Trying to psych myself up, because week three is always the hardest for me. I start to feel like the little engine that could.

I think I can,
I think I can.

So glad the comments are back. And I have YOU cheering in my corner.

Means the world to me!

Another glorious sunset. And my attempt to capture it.  I can say I had fun working on this. And it came quickly.  Still, there are several things I’d change if I could.

The wash in the sky is far too light, and the clouds far too dark. The wash actually looks deeper in person, and the moon does stand out a bit more. When I started with the clouds, the colors were much too light, and I just overcompensated.

The pink on the top cloud was drying too dark, I added more white gouache to the mix, and you can see the result.

My first photo of the sun setting, I thought “WOW! Look at that!”

Any wonder ancient Egyptians worshipped the sun?

This is the second of the flower series. Painted the same day, after Day 12. I showed the yellow flowers yesterday, because I did not want this to suffer by comparison to the first purple piece. I went much darker on this. Intentionally. I like both Day 12 and Purple Reign, for different reasons.

Which do your prefer?

I am having fun with these flowerscapes. I painted them while standing, unusual for me. I had to raise my desk, to accommodate my Raskog cart. Now the desk is too high for my chair, (I’m shopping the sales for an office chair). Standing has helped me to work loose. I am having so much fun, I want to go larger!

Thanks for stopping by!

Halfway already? Almost!

I didn’t start painting until about 9:30. But I did finish the wedding invitation, the RSVP card and the bridal shower invite. Whew!

Started a second painting, but I’ll find out tomorrow if it is work worthy, or a do over.

I wasn’t sure about posting this one, being late, I had no option. That rusty, dusty orange looked bright and not true to life again. Gave me the chance to play more with the selective color adjustments in Photoshop. More learning today!

Again I goofed and have light and shadow on the same side. Don’t know why I always do that. Just feels natural to me for some reason. Maybe it is because my lamp is on the right side of the desk. And the window is on the left. Hmmm. Makes no sense.

Truth be told there is a lot I think is wrong with this. Even so, I can see it maybe hanging on the wall somewhere.
