07/26/12 Big Boy

I had so much fun doing this!! I am looking forward to doing another one but of a cow. This is just so much fun tapping into my creative side. I am pleased with the way this big boy looks. I have seen several artists who paint in a similar fashion but this is new to me. AND SO MUCH FUN.!!!

07/21/12 Sailing at Rockport,Tx.

Worked a little more on this baby. The weather was very overcast with little blips of sunshine. I captured this sailboat returning to Rockport when I was there in March. I am still a long way from being finished but I'm on my way.
I have a close-up of a buffalo head that I'm also working on at the studio. It gives me a variety to work on.  I get bored easily and I can switch back and forth.
Thanks for looking at my blog on this sizzling summer day. Keep cool, Carol.

07/12/12 Finally back!

Sorry it has taken me so long to post but I have been under the weather for the last month! I wish I could have said I'd been someplace exotic and exciting but, "No such luck!" Anyway I'm back and well and ready to paint. I came down on Tuesday and got this far on a new painting from a photo I took in Rockport, Texas. In case you can't tell, that is a sailboat in the foreground. I feel like I haven't painted in months instead of weeks! I have really missed the studio and the time I spent there.

I'm sure I NEED to do a lot of things to improve this but just give me a few more days to get my brain wrapped around it again and to recall all the tips I've learned in the past two workshops I've taken.

Thanks for taking the time to check in on my blog. Carol
