Pass it along flowers



Great time in class last week.  We started a painting and then passed it to the left after 10 minutes. 
The learning was all about nothing being precious, about letting go, about opening to new
shapes and colors. Really a fun class exercise.

Shapes and Shadows




Last week our class painted outdoors.
I gravitated toward an old building.
Shapes and shadows.

Here I was practicing shapes. The rose is a great subject for that.

Oregon vacation




Oregon vacation.
It was great.
The best ride one day with friends.
Look what I found.
A little red shed. 
Now don't you think that is right up my alley?
Great vacation!

Eastman Tree Revisited

You saw the study in my last post and saw my desire to
add some color, some life when I did the next painting.
Fun painting to do....some abstract elements, lots of representational.
My word for the painting was majestic.
Those old trees have size!
