This is a copy of one of Carol Marine's sunflower paintings.  Needed to force myself to focus on large shapes of color and this was a fun one to do.  Hope to set up some similar objects to continue working on this.  While looking at painters in the Daily Paintworks website, I came across Lisa Daria.  Take a look and then also click on one of her links "Girls Just Wanna Paint".  It's a group of women in the Boston area who meet once a month, look at each other's work and post a challenge for the month - love, storefront, etc.  Interesting concept - maybe we should try a monthly challenge topic and see what we come up with???

Boxer finished

On Saturday I had the last session using this model.  I realize that with more time I could push the rendering even further.  I had to force myself to slow down and be very meticulous.  It was a good challenge for me.

White on White

This was my little painting today 6X6 trying to work on values, values, values.  I'm to particularly thrilled with it, but it's a start!

Changing tree

I have been struggling with this tree as it is now coming out of my imagination.  It is hard to make it look real.  I just started reading The Artistic Anatomy of Trees.  I hope it helps!
