04/28/12 Taking some shape

I am finally adding some details to trees, donkeys and grass. I have yet to tackle the bluebonnets and rocks in the yard.  It is beginning to take on a bit of personality!  Probably won't get much done next week because I'm attending a plein air workshop out of town and won't be at the studio until the following week.
I am also trying to sub at school as much as possible because the summer months are tight financially without school to supplement my income. Life is expensive! It is what it is!
Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog. Some of my work can be seen at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas as well as contacting me at 214-535-2394. Carol

04/20/12 Bandit and Chloe - beginning

I fell in love with these two donkeys, Bandit and Chloe, while I was in LaGrange, Tx. last month.  The bluebonnets were amazing as well. Bandit is what I think is a zonkey and Chloe is a white donkey.    Quite a pair!!   I began this on Thursday and had to work at school on Friday, so I hope to be able to work on it some time this weekend.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog. Carol

04/17/12 Making progress

A quiet morning at the studio and several days when I forgot my camera later, I am getting to the completed stage of this picture. It is very peaceful and calm. I am not very familiar with painting beaches so this is a self-teaching painting! I still think I will revisit this work when I return from a plein air workshop with Rusty Jones. I am sure there is a lot to be fixed, but so far it isn't too bad.
Thanks for taking time to look. Carol

04/02/12 beginning Beach House

I have begun another beach painting. I hope this one isn't so lonesome feeling. I have put a house and an anonymous couple on the beach so maybe it will feel happier. I loved the other one I did and the colors are some of my favorites. I think the starkness comes with the evening shadows.
Thanks for looking at my blog. Carol
