A larger painting that I recently finished. I hope to do more from regattas. I take lots of photos at Chesapeake Jr Crew regattas and there is one this weekend in Wichita. I am going to focus on the reflections and the "puddles".

My interpretationof this week's challenge. I have spent time today working on photography and am still trying to decide what to start on next, so I thought I would do this to help me get back into painting. I need to keep my hands in painting or I lose that muscle memory. This is on paper coated with black gesso, something I love to do. I am really trying to use these challenges as warm-ups and to learn soemthing. I do think it stretches to have someone else pick your subject matter.

This painting is a 36 X 36 oil on canvas painting taken from a photograph from our Colorado vacation this summer. It is an absolutely magnificent place. I was able to spend most of a morning there shooting photos while Nick was biking. I am planning to paint 3 more of these canvases. This painting has a lot of texture that may not transfer to the screen.

It has been too long...I started back with the weekly different strokes challenge from Karin Jurick. I enjoy cows having grown up with cows on my grandfather's farm. My cousin and I used to name and pet all the calves in the spring. Little did we know what they were doing with all the calves in the little pens.
I have also been working on the Garden of the Gods large painting and plan to post that tomorrow. It is very close to finished.
