Stretched Canvas Print

I forgot to mention my Limited Time Promotion, and tomorrow is the last day for this promotion.  I'm featuring "Bird".  It's for an 8X10, stretched canvas print.  I  have been working on my Fine Art America Shop, and it is fun.  I could spend a lot of time just seeing what different paintings/prints look like in the different frames.  It's so much fun!  I hope everyone has an amazing day!  Click HERE to see promotion.

Nibblefest Time! Bird Theme

I made it!  I wanted to have my painting listed on the first day of Nibblefest...and I just listed it!  Now I'm going to watch the second Sherlock Holmes...haven't see the first one, but I think it won't matter.  Be sure to check out all of the Artists' artwork on Nibblefest...this month's theme is Birds.  Click HERE to go to my auction.  I have a link on my page for the other artists' work.  Thanks!!!

En Plein Air

My sister, granddaughter, and I had a great day!  We headed out, early this morning, for gorgeous McDowell Creek Park, and we were the first people to arrive!  Not for long, however, because it's a pretty busy little park.  There were picnic tables by the river, so we set up, and started painting right away.   My sister is just learning how to paint, and she did a great job!  My granddaughter has been painting with me for some time now, so she finished three paintings.  I decided to give watercolor a try because it's easier to travel with, and I've wanted to learn how to paint with watercolor.  I think I started to get the hang of it, and it was fun. I'll be doing more of it, hopefully, at the beach soon!  We all think it would be fun to paint the ocean, and eat clam chowder!

The Process

I didn't think about posting a little about how the paper paintings come together.  (Or, collage, mixed media)  Here is a link to my Facebook Art page that shows a few "Work In Progress photos".

"Bird" New Mixed Media Painting

Hi!  I hope everyone is having a great summer!  It's been a busy one for us.  I've been trying to paint everyday, but it doesn't always happen.  I did finish a new mixed media piece on wood...I'm calling it "Bird".  I used my new favorite medium...paper.  It's now listed on eBay.  If I get the chance tomorrow, I will have some fun photos, and paintings to share.  My two granddaughters, and my sister and I, are going to give painting outdoors a go.  Packing a lunch, lots of paint, and we are all very excited!!!
