#982 Looking Inside

6"x6" | oil on archival panel

When I paint on black gesso, I feel like it's better to let as much of the black gesso show through as I can.

#981 Platinum Carbon Ink 2

6"x6" | oil no archival panel

I painted version 2 because the first one was so difficult for me! I was feeling the winter blahs (we have had snow on the ground for over 2 months now!) and not so inspired. So I decided to do Carol's weekly challenge on DailyPaintworks.com, to "paint something black and white". I couldn't help myself, (the sky has been so GRAY here for 2 months) and had to add in the red pen. It has been a captivating challenge. Carol is so good, she makes it look so easy! right??

6"x6" / oil on gessobord

I painted this for the weekly dpw challenge - Black and White. Except for the red pen... and the green color... I couldn't help myself! Maybe I should give it another try!
