Feeling Great!

After letting the paint dry a bit on the yellow rose, I added another couple of glazes. Since the last picture of the rose was a little blurry and the quality wasn't the best, I thought that I would post another.

After working on this little project, I feel GREAT! One of my greatest "art finds" recently is About.com's Painting site. This website is an invaluable resource to any painter! One of the interesting features that I found is the Monthly Painting Projects. For the month of March, the project was to create a painting portraying the "essence of a season" using only a palette knife, no brushes. I chose to portray autumn/fall because I love the colors of the leaves (NOT THE TEMPURATURE!). Take a look at my results!

I am heading to my easel now to work more on the italian staircase piece. Stay tuned for the results of tonight's work!

The Yellow Rose

Well folks, as promised from yesterday's posting... here is the rose that I am working on. It isn't dry enough for me to put the final glazing layers on it, but it is getting close! This little project has been fun for me and I feel recharged! Stay tuned for more artwork, coming soon!

Sorry the photo is so blurry. I couldn't seem to keep the camera still!
