Painting for Janis and Dorea

A special visit from Dorea and Janis brought about this painting.

This sweet little boy and his Mommy helped transplant some little bulbs and a few months later they are blooming.  Such a great kindness.

See how the painting unfolds …

Huts & Houses Step by Step

It is a fun challenge to take a painting that was just a lot of nothing and then add more to it and see what happens ….

All in all a fun little painting that could have been discarded at any point but it was fun to push it as far as it could go.  Looking back I see there are some  moments that were good before I over played them – but if we played safe we would never learn.

Go ahead and have a fun time – take an old painting and make some huts and shacks – they don’t need to be perfect works of architecture.

Lynda’s Cane Chair Step-by-Step

I was inspired to paint this lovely chair of my sister – Lynda.  The light of the afternoon falling across the criss-cross patterns and illuminating the one side of the chair.

This is how it unfolded.

Watching a painting grow and “become” is one of the most rewarding activities I have enjoyed x
