PHEW!!!! We made it. Here is our January Challenge.

For a while now I have wanted to incorporate butterflies into some of my paintings. This seemed like a good time to start. Though they were a little trying to paint I am happy with the outcome and hope to find more ways to get these little guys into future pieces.

"Untitled" 8x10

Oil on Harboard Panel 8x10 NFS
Landscape paintings have always held an interest for me. They are seldom the subject matter of my paintings but occasionally I find myself drawn to giving it a try.
I usually sit down when I paint but for this one I stood up, and just let go. It felt great.

"Two Figs" 8x8

8x8 Oil on Hardboard

I am back in my studio, after my Christmas break, working on some larger paintings, but I wanted to take time out to paint and post “Two Figs”. I don’t eat a lot of figs but the colors of this delicate fruit keeps my coming back.

Our “Challenge” for this month will be coming a little later on in the month. Jelaine has picked the subject and Otto and I have it in hand. Can’t wait to see what those two come up with.
