Happy Painting.

Gouache Barn Series

Since I got behind with posting because of life 101...and my broken arm, eventually I may post some more of my opaque barns as soon as I figure out what I already posted.  But in the mean time...I will photograph my newest paintings and start the new year off with posting them.

I am working on a Chicago in Winter series and have completed 6 paintings already.  I have also started to paint my annual snow scenes.  Best way to experience the snow.. is in a painting.  We did have a good snow fall a few days ago and I was able to get out and take lots of photos....wait till you see what I have planned for future paintings.

Again...hope you are having a good start to the new year.

Another painting from the sketches in my barn book that I painted this in opaque gouache watercolor.  I need to tweak this photo.  It is a little dark.

Hay

After my fall in the fall when I broke my nose and arm I have really gotten behind on blogging.  Having my arm in an air cast for 8 weeks and now going through physical therapy sure keeps me busy.  I DID complete a sketchbook on barns and then did 37 gouache watercolors of these barns.  They were fun to do and I will be doing more of them.

This painting is the last one in the book.

I did start painting for this year and I am currently working on a new series of Chicago.  Today was a perfect cold winter day to go out and take photos.  There were great shapes and shadows...I took a lot of photos.  I have subject matter to keep me busy all winter.  Hope you come back to look for them.

May you all have a great new year filled with many blessings.

Pumpkin Patch

We finally did get some color but I didn't get out as much as I wanted.  I did get some fall photos of 2021....last two days we had lots of winds so most of the leaves are on the ground.  I am working on my gouache paintings of the sketches I did in my sketch book (with a broken arm).  But I am having fun.
Have a great weekend.

Fall Around

Went out on a photo shoot yesterday.  The sun came out for a bit and it is supposed to start getting cold.  Thought I better take advantage of the situation.  Well...it was a good idea, but then the sun went away and it started to rain.  I still took a bunch of neat photos, mostly of barns.  As I was just downloading them, I decided I just may have to start another sketchbook of barns.
