It has been a while since I have posted anything. Work and family stuff has been keeping me busy, but I have been painting.
I managed to get the Casa Di Bambini painting safely off to New Jersey in time for the Montessori school parent tour.
I finished the Civic Stadium Painting, which is shown below. I was not happy with the plain blue sky, so I added some wispy clouds that are actually clouds I saw over the west hills.
I still really like the shapes that are happening here and think that they make a nice composition.
This is a 30 x 40 painting and I have already made a frame for it.
I am hoping to enter this painting and two others in the Lake Oswego Center for the Arts Festival. The deadline is March 4th and I have the paintings photographed and need to get the materials in the mail.
My daughter wanted to paint with me and I needed to put a base down for some future paintings.
I still had a bunch of paint left over and noticed a painting of sunflowers that I had set aside (and abused) and decided that it needed a new background. I had fun doing the loose background and I think that the painting sings now.
It is no Van Gogh (see his Sunflowers), but it is pleasant enough.
