It’s been so stinking hot!

I managed to get a few paintings finished. I have to put droplets of water over the paint, on the palette, to keep the paint from drying out too soon. Then, I have watery paint...and then a dry paint cap forms over the paint. However, I'm getting used to it, just have to get painting, again.

Dog photo that should be an album cover.

The group, BARK, straight from Missouri. They are currently NOT on tour, due to litigation with the Swedish pop group, ABBA. When reached for comment, CheChe whined, "how were we to know that you just can't replace "dancing" with "barking", and release the recording? We're just dogs!" <---my little joke. :)

June Flowers

The winds and rains knocked down a lot of the flowers. Luckily, they kept blooming.


June winds and rains

It rained so much, I wasn't able to mow until last Thursday evening, after work. Saturday, I finished mowing. However, the already mowed area grew quite a bit during Friday and Saturday. It will have to do until this coming Friday or Saturday. I was able to get a little bit of painting done.

Most recent painting.

Columbia Art League sent an E-mail, last weekend, as a call for entry into the Members’ Summer Open. I only had a couple days to come up with my entry. Last year, I bought some framed canvas, 11”x14”, so figured that one of my recent paintings of that size could fit in the frame. It was about 1/6th too large. I had to paint something new, because I needed to give the title of the piece when filling out the entry. This painting is loosely taken from a recent photo out my back window.

Row of turtles, tropical hibiscus flower, croci, and...if I picked the right croci picture, there should be some bees. :)

My most recent paintings

I’m ready for spring!

My latest water color. I painted it due to a friendly compitition btween artists at one of my artist groups. I was going to paint an acrylic, but was on call for work. Since watercolor cleanup is quick, and it doesn't matter if the paint dries, I decided to go with that. Two evenings of painting, and I called it finished! :)

It seems that February is flying by. We have had several snow falls, and now the temperature is turning bitter cold. I hope it warms up soon. Brrrr!

Finished pet portraits and a watercolor.

The opossums are some that visit at night, and the shark is from The Far Side. The ten portraits are the rest of the pictures in this collage.

Works in progress

I agreed to paint ten portraits. So far, I've sketched them and had two paint sessions.
