I broke one of the stems off my poinsettia while I was trying to water it.. well, trying to get the wrap off the pot so I could water it. Thanks Lori for the idea of just putting a hole in the paper... duh.. I wish I would have checked my comments first. Anyhow I stuck it in my favorite blue vase and it looked pretty good so... another painting. One of these days I'm going to post all the paintings I have done with this vase in them, about five or six now. SOLD
Got the most beautiful poinsettia. couldn't help but paint it , before all the leaves fall off. I have terrible effects on these plants. as soon as they enter my house, they start looking like they are receiving chemo treatments. Doesn't matter where I put them, or what I do, pretty soon ,just a stick and a pot.
This past weekend, Fri, Sat and Sunday we were in White Swan WA. working on the Yakima Indian Reservation. Rising Light Ministry, headed by Briggs Macon is building a house for a Native American family whose house burned down five years ago. Since loosing their home they have been living in a haybale house with limited facilities. This is a view from the reservation done last summer.
Well the snow is gone. All melted away. It stayed longer than usual here in the Pacific Northwest and its a good thing. I almost ran off the road a few times looking at scenes I couldn't take my eyes off of. So I will work from some pictures for now... Never without my handy digital.SOLD
You drive by a place everyday and hardly notice its there. Then it snows and the stage is set and the scene is spectacular. All you can do is attempt to render the fleeting beauty of the moment, like a quick praise to God.
Another installment of the "Outside the Box" series. Gotta do something with that leftover paint. Actually I think there is a paradigm shift happening in my artistic thought processes........or not. I don't know, I'm just thinking alot more about abstract design.
