My Valentine

I painted this for my husband for Valentine's Day.  It was a day late due to me still trying to work out some mixed media "issues"!

Revelation

I've been playing with the palette knife some more, and a little mixed media.  This is one of my favorite verses~

Gordon!

There's a neighborhood cat that comes and visits us at the studio at Wine and Design in Raleigh.  He's the biggest, fluffiest cat I've ever seen!  AND, he weighs at least 20 pounds!  He visited last week when the weather was warmer and we had the doors open. I snatched a photo with my phone and just HAD to paint him~

White on White Challenge

"White on White"
This week's DPW Painting Challenge was to paint white objects on white backgrounds to find color and value.  Since I love color so much, especially on "white" things, this was a fun challenge for me! I used the photo provided for my painting.
