#847 Flowery Challenge


​Flowers are just so overwhelmingly beautiful, and yet some of the most difficult things for me to paint. They are bright, yet have shadows, and at the same time, the petals and leaves in the shadow can be translucent, and filled with light. Could anything be more challenging? whew. hence the title...

#845 Horsethief Lake Park

6"x6" | oil on archival raymar panel

It was an exciting day painting at Horesethief Lake Park today. The weather was perfect, our painting group got all set up to paint, and then there was smoke coming from the west... A small grass fire had started from the train tracks and was blowing our direction. So we packed up, and took a little field trip to Horsethief Butte. We hiked around some and we could see the fire from up high, and we watched the firemen put it out. The views from the Butte are just stunning. I really can't believe what great photos the iPhone takes. We decided to go back to the park and get some painting done! And this is what I did. You can see the Butte off in the distance behind the grove of Locust Trees.

#844 Stumptown Glow

6"x6" | oil on archival 1/2" thick panel w keyhole back

Painted on black gesso background.

I have been saving these Stumptown Cold Brew bottles, they look so interesting with the light coming through them.
I'm also trying out a new panel to paint on. I have a photo of the back, below. It is 1/2" thick and has a keyhole on the back so that you don't have to frame it to hang it on the wall.
