Height of Fall

I've been working on a very detailed larger painting, so I felt like being loose for a change. So thought a daily would be a good outlet.

This one makes me laugh. Why a dog? Well, I put a tiny cat in the window of the victorian house a few days ago and thought that except for a couple of failed attempts at horses, I'd never painted an animal. And this photo of our black lab Sailor (God rest her soul)as a pup was on my table, so....

Hudson River Sail

My boyfriend and I sail on the Hudson, and occassionally we experience alittle boat envy when we see a boat as sleek as this one was.

The Pier

Keeping with the beach theme while it's still 2 degrees outside here's a local pier.

Its 8 degrees this January morning. How could I not be thinking of how I wish it was summer and I was on the beach instead of dreading going out of my house at all? Besides, I live at the Jersey shore...I have to paint beaches. This is Ocean Grove in the early morning...the sun was going in and out.

Just a banana

Felt like trying to paint a traditional type fruit stillife...only had a banana. Tried to make it alittle more interesting by peeling it alittle. Hmm. Must buy more fruit. Well, its a daily.

Another daily

This daily painting serves two purposes as it was done for Karen Jurik's latest Different Strokes for Different Folks challenge. I think I can rightly count it as a daily painting as I listened to my boyfriend and did not "fiddle with it" so finished it in about an hour. I wish it was alittle darker, as it is a night scene, but I'm happy with the dusky look.

1st daily painting

I've been painting everyday for a while now but since I use my regular blog for news about shows and receptions and such I decided I'd rather post my daily work in it's own spot since not all of it will make it to MY MAIN SITE.
