DRINK UP


April


   Snooping around and found this 
wonderful blog Altered Book Lovers and it's drinks challenge.  
The little file cabinet in my head pulled up 
a couple of paintings that I did 
a few years back.
 So I thought I would submit them for y'all to see.


Wine and grapes. Acrylic on canvas panel, 8x10" 
and a wooden disk magnet painted with acrylic.


A frosty cool one for the summer days,
 and I know we all love cats.

Hoppy Easter Every Bunny


The best Easter Tree ever!

SPRING




Linking to Paint Party Friday

                                                                                     
     It has been a month I think since I last posted.  I always think  of a confessional when I say this. 
What have I been doing all this time.  I wish I could make a painting every day like some people do, but I am slow and it is spring.  The beautiful mornings make it very difficult to stay indoors.

   









The lady above is one of my latest paintings done for the "Paint Your Heart and Soul" online  course. I used watercolor, which  I have traditionally avoided for various reasons. However, this one I am quite pleased with.  I call her "Listen To Your Inner Child". I did cheat a bit  by using opaque watercolors on some areas as well as some pastels.  
 


 "Blaze"
Drawn with colored pencil  from a photo by photographer Jeanne Tessier.  She follows a herd of mustangs of the 
Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota and takes wonderful photos of them. This handsome beast was one of the herd stallions which unfortunately crossed to greener pastures recently.



My Girls. 
 The black one is Desi and the little gray is Gizzi.
Acrylic paintings on 6x6 inch canvas.
  

 I do not have many flowers in my yard.
This is the flower of an aloe plant.
The flowers are quite small.  For these photos,
I used one of those lenses that you clip on a iPhone camera.


Beautiful moth on my deck.

Happy Easter every bunny.
