The Purples of winter

watercolor
14" x 21"
landscape

People always think that snow is white  Well, not always.  It is a reflection of the sky so you see so many paintings painted with blue snow and shadows  Then in my world, since I have an artistic license ,I even paint them in purple and teal.  Add one of these to your collection  :))

Another winter Sunset...trying a different medium

acrylic
8" x 24"
landscape

My regular watercolor students have been with me for years now...I guess I make good coffee (and I am sure the desserts that I make are a good draw, too).  So I thought what the heck, let's try some acrylic.  I have been playing with these for a few years for little workshops.  I haven't done any serious painting in them for myself yet.  I am just always wanting to paint in watercolor.  I must say,  I do paint these in glazes just like in watercolor.  They have been surprisingly fun for all of us.  I know I enjoyed coming up with the samples and then I do enjoy teaching them. I forgot to mention that I have great students

On February 17 and Feb. 24 I will be teaching 2 workshops on how to paint the above  Indiana acrylic landscape.  Sorry but both classes are full.  It will be exciting for all of us because this is really a unique size.  It is a stretched canvas so they can just hang them on their wall.  I am sure if they decide to frame these, they would have to get a custom frame.  I never framed an oil or an acrylic yet....gonna find out how.

take it easel...K

Sunset Snow

watercolor
11" x 15"
landscape

This is from one of our snow days here in Indiana.  Some people like to move away from the warm weather to get away from this ....  if I moved, I would truly miss this.  I so enjoy painting snow scenes.  I do not need a lot of snow...but I do like a nice light blanket of it. When it snows, you can find me some where with my cameras.  It was such a day yesterday so out I went...Only thing, when I got home, I was viewing my photos on the computer.  I thought I had black and white film in my digital cameras since everything was so gray.  Good thing I have an artistic license because I can change that and I can add all of the color that I wish.  

Stay warm.

I guess I got tired of the snow and cold weather so I decided to paint a summer scene.  Now I am even colder since I want spring to come....

this is one of the newer bridges that you can see on your way up to Chicago from Indiana.  I do love going up there often.
