I had such a great day today! I went to Waynesville Ohio and competed in a Quick Draw. We had three hours and you can draw or paint. I chose to paint and completed a 8" x 10" in two hours. Sometimes I think it's best to quick early and chance picking it to death just because you have time. I framed my very wet oil painting and set it on my easel. I won! Feels so great to be coming home a winner. It's up and down with this painting life, something good happens and then rejection. Today's a wonderful day!

Hi there, sorry I haven't posted in a while but I have been very busy. I have a few paintings that aren't quite finished, I did a plein air event this past weekend and other assorted things.
I did this today, I had the urge to play around with a palette knife. I normally use the palette knife a bit for most of my paintings but this one was all palette knife and I smoothed the background out a bit with a brush. This is oil on a 8" x 10" stretched canvas. Sorry it's a bit blurry.

Hello Friends! Tonight I looked out on my deck and the setting sun was hitting a pot of red geraniums. I had this urge to try and catch that wonderful glow hitting the edge of the blooms. My hubby laughed as I ran through the house collecting my painting gear. I set up on the deck and captured this in maybe twenty minutes. This is oil on a 8" x 10" stretched canvas. How'd I do?
