Nothing interesting on TV so my husband is picking up a movie and I made the popcorn.
I purchased the bowl from a fundraiser and the popcorn from the Boy Scouts. The current exhibit at the our local art center in Fort Madison, Iowa benefits the local homeless shelters and food banks. If you live nearby stop by and purchase a one of a kind bowl for charity.
This is my granddaughter's cat who often stares outside. She was a stray and now has a comfortable existence and the only worries she has is the kids wanting to pick her up and pet her. I wonder if she misses the life she had before.
This is a driveway off a country road. I ended up working from a photo because a sign across the road said no trespassing. Once I had set up on a road to a field thinking the farmer would not be using it that time of year. I had just finished setting up my french easel when the farmer showed up with his tractor pulling something. I apologized and moved on.
I was plein air painting in Rodeo Park Saturday when this man came walking by on the trail. He graciously consented to let me take his picture on the bench. He may not recognized himself and I changed the color of his hat. The bench really needed something and putting people in paintings give them scale and personality.
6" x 12" oil on canvas panel.
I painted the above on preprimed canvas that I then glue to masonite panels. This give me the option to crop the image. I dropped this into Photoshop to see what it would look like as a 6 x 6.
This is the other half as a 6 x 6. I think I might like them as cropped images. I may revisit that in a week.
This was painted when the leaves were off the trees. There were a few brown leaves on the deciduous trees. At that point the evergreen's needles were getting that deep brown. A sort of barren landscape before the first snow.
