I wasn't exactly finished with this painting when all of a sudden my friend yelled " STOP!" So I stopped LOL.
He said "It reminds me of Klee" What are your takes on this picture? Good bad or indifferent !
Me I think he needs to buy this one! LOL. :)

 Hope you all are having a great day!

Thanks for stopping by!

Untitled VII - Water Color & Ink

I did this painting last evening, and really had a good time painting it! It was kind of funny in a way, we just had our front porch painted over this past weekend, and I have to go out & clean it today! I tend to get a little messy when I paint, needless to say I painted this picture while sitting out on the front porch LOL.

Hope that you all are having a great day!

Thanks for stopping by & thanks for all of your comments over the weekend! :)

Hope you like today's painting!

Best wishes!

House With Red Roof - Water Color & Ink

It has been a very sad day for me :(  A friend of mine stopped by my studio the other day to tell me that his brother another friend & talented tattoo design artist had died from a drug overdose. And today was His funeral. Now I personally don't do funerals, but I will miss him a great deal! I also consider myself lucky and fortunate to have a couple of his drawings that he did for me!~

Even though it has been a sad day I have been trying very hard not to let his death get me down. So this is what I came up with for today. I tend to think of it as kind of a bright and happy painting to help lift my spirits! :)

Anyway I hope your week is off to a good start! And I hope you like this painting! Speaking of bright & happy I did kind of notice what kind of seems like a rainbow in the upper left hand corner of this painting, which I wasn't even aware of right away! But was happy & glad to see it :)

Hope you all like it!

Best wishes!

Water Color & Ink - Impression Marigolds

I Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! Here a few days ago I walked across the street to the Church that is right by me to buy a pop and a candy bar. They were selling flowers two for a dollar! So I bought a few of these marigolds to plant in my planters out front which I needed to do anyway! And I figured the money was going to a good cause & to help out the church, so it was a pretty good deal I thought!

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to stop by to take a look at todays painting! I hope that you all like it!

Best wishes!

Water Color & Ink - Back Patio Scene

I did this painting early last evening on location downtown. I was really impressed by the layout of the whole scene! Especially the banner on the wall & potted flowers beneath it. I'm going to have to make another trip down there here one of these days,  there's some other really cool scenes there that I think would make for a nice painting or two!

Hope you all are having a great weekend! And I hope that you all like todays painting!

Best wishes!

Water Color - Impression Iris Field

Congratulations to the winning bidder on my eBay painting yesterday! I have been painting quite a few Iris picture lately, there's a house across the street from me that has just a ton of these beautiful blue Iris's growing right on the corner that I go by all the time just to see, sketch & paint the flowers!

I have one oil painting finished that I'm still waiting for it to dry & one that's almost finished! I have decided that if the painting will fit on my scanner I will scan it instead of trying to photograph it! But the picture needs to dry before I can scan it LOL. It seems like I can take pretty decent photos of everything but my paintings LOL :) Which is why I decided to scan all of my paintings!

Anyway I hope you all like today's picture. And a very warm welcome to all of my new followers :)
And thanks for all of your wonderful comments!

I hope you all have a Fantastic Day!

Best Wishes!

Water Color - Impression Bush With Red Flowers

We have been getting quite a bit of rain lately! So my paintings have a tendency to reflect  the atmosphere, or at least I try to capture that area around my motif!

I apologize about not keeping up with my regular posting. But I assure you I still paint/sketch everyday!
I've been just a tad bit frustrated with this one oil painting that I have been working on LOL. Sometimes they come together & sometimes they don't :) And I'm almost afraid this particular oil painting might become a don't LOL.

But enough sad talk. I do hope that you all like today's painting! Thank you for stopping by to take a look at it! And a GREAT BIG THANK YOU, to all of you for your wonderful comments!

Please check out my painting on eBay if you haven't already done so. Today's the last day for it! And it is selling! And some lucky person is going to end up owning it!

Thanks Again!

Best Wishes!

Oil Study - Impression Iris Field

Today is kind of a dreary, rainy day, kinda like it was about a week and a half ago when I painted this picture.
Even though it was cloudy and rainy I still felt this made for a very nice painting! I always try to look for beauty in everything I see, no matter what that may be! Even though it was cloudy & rainy when I painted this the flowers where still very beautiful!

I hope you all like it!

Hope all of you had a great weekend! And thank you all so very much for all of your wonderful comments on yesterdays painting!
They made my weekend :)

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today! Again I hope you all like this one too!
