My January favorites.

Tomorrow I begin Leslie Saeta’s January 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.
Hope to see you there!

Wishing you Joy, Happiness and Health!

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
The rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

This has been sitting on my desk for a week. I watched a Youtube demo, and that artist covered her tile with one solid color, and then painted flowers over that. I had that in my head when I started this, but clearly I was not thinking. I covered the paper in the sky blue. We all know what you get when you mix blue and yellow.

Started 4 x 4 inches. But the head was flat on one side, and the petals sort of flopped on that side as well. Digital crop to the rescue. Funny it took me that long for it to dawn on me to crop. But it did. Took a while for this to grow on me.

Site was down for three hours today. The internet to the server was out. The internet was out to all of Miles City (MT. Where the server is). Here’s hoping it stays up now.

Wishing you a day free of mishaps!

 

 

Partly Cloudy Sunshine

The work is done. A painting for the day. Successful learning, if not successful  looking. The scan is not true to life. There is a playful interaction between the butterscotch and the yellow, only slightly visible here. The blues are deeper indigo, and the greens somewhat brighter.

I love the shape of the head, the way the berry pooled. That was laid down first and formed the shape of the center. (Yellow, butterscotch then berry, green and indigo.) I love the texture in the center.

Partly cloudy is my favorite kind of day. Changes the colors on the mountains minute by minute. Click on the images for a closer look.

Oh, these vast, calm, measureless mountain days,
days in whose light everything seems equally divine,
opening a thousand windows to show us God.
